by: on | in Movies | No Comments

Can you picture anyone other than Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack and Rose in Titanic? ‘Cause we couldn’t — until we saw the following list! While our hearts are totally with Leo and Kate as the iconic on-screen romance of the century, it turns out tons of other actors and actresses were considered for the roles. And to take it a step further, a significant amount of those considerations actually auditioned for the roles and either a) didn’t get them, or b) turned them down.

From crazy choices like Johnny Depp and Macaulay Culkin to surprising ones like Angelina Jolie and Rose Byrne, these are the actors and actresses who could’ve starred in Titanic:
