Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio: Friends or Soulmates?

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio

The two have been friends for more than a decade, are they finally going to fall in love—off camera?

It's no secret that Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have remained close since shooting Titanic back in 1997. Although the two have had their share of romances such as Kate's marriage and separation to Sam Mendes and Leo's much publicized romance with Gisele Bündchen, they never seemed to so much as make out off screen. So are we to believe that throughout their 14 years of friendship, two award-winning movies, and multiple sex scenes there has been no hint of chemistry? Could it finally be their chance to get together, now that Kate is single again?Kate Winslet: 'Being Single Is Empowering'

According to the Kate—no. Though the Revolutionary Road actress knows that many friendships involving the opposite sex are full of sexual tension, she says it's not the case with her and Leo. Really? Has she seen her own steamy sex scenes with him?

"He knows me better than anyone else in the world. Lots of male friendships begin as a cheeky snog. Or a little undercurrent of flirtation. But Leo and I? No. He’s my rock," Kate told Vogue Magazine.

Despite not wanting to jump in the sack with him, Kate and Leo seem to have an undeniable bond and love for one another. Kate relied on her Titanic costar during her breakup with Sam. "I don’t know what the f--k I would have done if I hadn’t had him," she said.

Her love for Leo was graciously returned. "We literally grew up together. And in every major life event we’ve been there as a support mechanism for each other."

OK, so neither of them thinks there's a romantic bond, but in the spirit of When Harry Met Sally, isn't friendship the best foundation for a strong relationship?
