Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio prove they've still got it, as the couple reunite for the new flick Revolutionary Road. But what's the difference in filming those sexy love scenes now, as opposed to when they got it on in the car in 1997's Titanic? Well, now, Kate's hubby, Sam Mendes, is directing,
Awkward table for three, anyone?
"I just kept saying, 'This is too... weird,'" Kate told Entertainment Weekly. "And Leo was like, 'Oh, get over it.' And I'm going, 'Yeah, a little reminder: You're my best friend. He's my husband. This is a bit weird.'"
And Sam agreed. "I will admit it was quite bizarre to direct my wife in how to make love," he said of the gig. "But it's difficult whether you're married to a person or not."
But awkward or not, Kate says that they got through it -- and the magic that was Jack and Rose was still there.

Um, yeah -- it's you and Leo -- duh!
Seriously though, Kate and Leo's romantic reunion is like heaven for most of us. And for her, too, it seems -- she admits to manipulating the situation to bring them back together.
"We knew that if we were going to do something again, it had to be something big and emotional," Kate said of the possibility of acting opposite Leo again. "I played this very clever cat-and-mouse game to get my husband and then my best friend involved."
