The 1997 cult classic ‘Titanic’ continues to be one of the most celebrated love-and-tragedy films. Featuring Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio as Rose and Jack, the romantic blockbuster is set against the backdrop of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. The movie ends with an old Rose throwing ‘The Heart of the Ocean’ necklace in the water.
Nominated for 14 Academy Awards, James Cameron’s Titanic has ruled the hearts across the world for years despite a heart-breaking ending. Years after garnering massive attention and love, a video showing an alternate ending to Titanic has gone viral on social media.
In the viral clip, Rose reveals that she has the necklace and placed it in the hands of Brock at his request. “You look for treasure in the wrong places, Mr Lovett. Only life is priceless, and making each day count,” she says before chucking the necklace into water.
The short clip was shared by Pat Brennan on Twitter who while sharing the video said, “The alternate ending to Titanic is hilarious. This would have absolutely ruined the film for me.”

I can’t stop laughing. Seriously that ending would have sucked but watching it now just cracks me up. Bill Paxton had the look like he was going to push Rose over the edge and take off with the jewel

A whale should have eaten the necklace and they could have made a sequel where they were hunting the whale

So do you think with that ending it still would’ve won best picture and 11 Oscars? 🤣🤣
