Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet stood side-by-side in London on Sunday night at the premiere of their film Revolutionary Road, in which they play a married couple.

The pair have maintained a close friendship in the 11 years since they made ‘Titanic’ and Di Caprio, 34, plainly adores his co-star.

He said: “We have been a great support mechanism for each other. We both started when we were young and have always been great friends ever since ‘Titanic.’ We have always been there for each other.”

Asked what it was like having to film a sex scene with his friend, Di Caprio said: “It’s natural and I feel completely comfortable. In a twisted way it’s like kissing a family member.”

Winslet, 33, wowed the thousands of fans gathered in Leicester Square in a black dress by Narciso Rodriguez and five-inch heels by Roger Vivier. She also wore a Chopard diamond bangle worth tens of thousands of pounds. She spent an hour signing autographs before heading inside the Odeon.

Winslet last week won a Golden Globe for her performance in the film, as well as another for her role in ‘The Reader.’

On the night she made two very gushing acceptance speeches which lasted seven minutes in total, and in which she forgot the name of one of her fellow nominees, Angelina Jolie.

She said: “I’ve been in the US since then and everyone was very complimentary about the speech. I only realised it had caused such a reaction when I got back to the UK.”

She also returned Di Caprio’s warm sentiment, describing him as “the greatest actor of his generation.”
