Today Kate Winslet woke up in her modest 3-bedroom bungalow in the suburbs of London. She made breakfast, sent her kids to school, did a little Facebooking, and then drove to the biscuit factory, where she works as an assistant manager. It may be shocking, but we no longer live in a reality where Kate shot to global superstardom as Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic. That role has been retroactively re-cast with a fluffy black cat named Lizzy, stage name: OwlKitty. Thanks to the power of the green screen, OwlKitty’s the one who made out with Leonardo DiCaprio on the bow of the ship. OwlKitty’s the one who laid on that couch, titties out. OwlKitty’s the one who
was nominated actually WON the 1997 Oscar for Best Actress.
Here’s the NEW trailer for Titanic, starring OwlKitty:
Lizzy’s owners, Tibo Charroppin and Olivia Boone, started inserting their rescue kitty into famous movies and TV shows just for fun. They sent their homemade parodies to friends and created a YouTube account to keep the videos all in one place. Now the OwlKitty YouTube page has over 1.74 million subscribers, and her filmography includes starring turns in Jurassic Park, Jaws, Lord of the Rings, Pulp Fiction, and Love Actually. Outside of acting, Lizzy likes playing with her laser pointer and hanging out at home.
Titanic is one of my favorite movies, so I was obviously a little hesitant about OwlKitty replacing Kate. But the entire billion-dollar re-edit job is worth it for this shot alone:
