The Little Girl From Titanic Spills About Working With Leo

Remember the little girl who danced with Jack Dawson in the Titanic movie? 

‘Course you do. 


She was jealous of Jack’s love for Rose (but he was sweet enough to reassure her “you’re still my best girl, Cora” because he’s a peach like that) and we, in turn, were jealous of her.

What our teenage selves would have given for a spin with the loveable pauper who captured our hearts.

What a first dance that would have been. 


Now actress Alexandrea Owens, who played the curly haired sweetie, is all grown up, and she has sat down with Buzzfeed for an extra special interview.

And it tells us a LOT about our Leonardo. 

Like the gentleman that he is, Alexandrea told of how he would “order me peanut butter and jelly sandwiches between scenes.”

And the cuteness overload doesn’t end there, oh no.


She recalled: “We filmed a scene where I was supposed to be enjoying the third-class party, and Leo was dancing around behind the camera trying to make me laugh.”

We’ve since been treated to even more of Leo’s moves since those early days aboard the SMS Titanic.


But Alexandrea also spilled the beans about his dancing skills. She said: “Leo was an awesome dancer! He had to be to make my dancing look better. Plus, dancing with Leo is such a great experience that it all becomes a blur of cool.”

Oh. We TOTALLY get you, Alex.



So, this is what little Cora looked like back in 1997 whilst filming… 


And this is what she looks like now, all grown up at the age of 26…
