Director Cameron has explaining in 2012 that it wasn’t a “question of room, but a question of buoyancy”. “When Jack puts Rose on the raft, he tries to get on the raft – he’s not an idiot, he doesn’t want to die – and the raft sinks; it kind of flips,” he said.
“It’s clear that there’s really only enough buoyancy available for one person, so he makes the decision to let her be that person.”
