I don't care that it's 2015. If the words "never let go, Jack" doesn't induce immediate tears, then you have no heart and should probably go see a doctor to find out how the hell you've been living all this time.
And who could forget the emotional penny-whistle melody from "My Heart Will Go On?" Not to mention Celine Dion's powerful vocals as she belts heart-filled lyrics that makes me wish I could have crawled into the TV and saved Jack myself so he and Rose could end up together and live happily ever after.
Dear lord. The feels.
It's been nearly 18 years since the film Titanic was first released, but we are still sensitive as ever about the tragic ending between the two lovers. I know I'm not the only one who openly wishes Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet would get together in real life.
In case your curious, the cast has aged incredibly well, looking regal as ever. Here's the proof!

I remember watching Titanic in theaters during their 15 year anniversary in 2012 and sobbing uncontrollably as the credits began to roll. Then, I began to laugh at how much of a sensitive girl I was being. My boyfriend was a little concerned but still hugged me.
Thank you Titanic for showing us what true love is.
