Cameron on 'Titanic' Finale: 'Mythbusters' Is 'Full of Shi–;' Jack Had to Die

Director James Cameron is saying the "Mythbusters" determination Leonardo DiCaprio character's death in "Titanic" was needless is wrong.

"[Jack's] best choice was to keep his upper body out of the water and hope to get pulled out by a boat or something before he died," Cameron told The Daily Beast in an interview that centered on the director's Trump administration thoughts – he thinks "they are insane," by the way.

In "Titanic," Jack (DiCaprio) stays in the 28-degree water while Rose (Kate Winslet) floats on a piece of wood after the ship sinks. "Mythbusters" says both could have survived had they attached her life jacket to the bottom of the wood to support both their weight, per Entertainment Weekly.

"OK, so let's really play that out: You're Jack; you're in water that's 28 degrees, your brain is starting to get hypothermia," Cameron told TDB. "'Mythbusters' asks you to now go take off your life vest, take hers off, swim underneath this thing, attach it in some way that it won't just wash out two minutes later — which means you're under water tying this thing on in 28-degree water, and that's going to take you five to 10 minutes, so by the time you come back up you're already dead. So, that wouldn't work.

"They're fun guys, and I loved doing that show with them, but they're full of sh–."
