Celine Dion finally settles the controversial 22-year 'Titanic' door debate

AOL.com Editors

This past summer, Margot Robbie appropriately deemed the two-decade-old "Titanic" door debate "the biggest controversy in modern cinema."

During an interview alongside her "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood" co-stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Jack in the 1997 film, Robbie and Pitt determined that DiCaprio's character could have "certainly" squeezed onto the wooden door that saved Rose from freezing to death or drowning in the ice-cold North Atlantic waters, like the ship's 1500 other passengers.

And while DiCaprio has "no comment" on the age-old controversy, Celine Dion has a different take on the film's divisive ending. In a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the "My Heart Will Go On" singer believes that Jack, and not Rose, may be to blame for his own demise.

“First of all, if you look closely [at] the picture, Rose is maybe dead or totally frozen. And she’s not quite all there, okay?” the 51-year-old said to Fallon. “Second of all, he doesn’t need an invitation. Come on, baby! Make himself comfortable. Jump in. You know?” 

She continued, “Then who did not think about this guy who is in the middle of the frozen ocean and that maybe all his body is so frozen that he didn’t have the strength to jump."

In 1998, Dion's anthem won an Academy Award and Golden Globe for "Best Original Song," becoming one of the singer's most iconic recordings and the film's most popular song to date.
