Tell us how you really feel, Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet has had much to say about this week's 3-D releaseĀ  of "Titanic," in which she starred back in 1997.

The movie arrives in theaters Wednesday, and the 36-year-old actress hasn't played coy on how she thinks the blockbuster has held up.

As she told MTV at the movie's London premiere last week, the film itself is "still as wonderful and epic as it always was," although her acting....not so much.

"My American accent could've been much better. My acting could've been a lot better," Winslet admitted, although she added that she thinks she looks "nicer now" than she did when she played Rose in her early 20s.

The actress reportedly also said as much Monday while on U.K. morning show "Daybreak," talking about how much 15 years can change an actor.

"We do look very different, we're older," she said of herself and her "Titanic" co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. "Leo's 37, I'm 36. We were 21 and 22 when we made that film. You know, he's fatter now - I'm thinner. It's true though!"

And that's not all: The eternal theme song to "Titanic," Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," doesn't inspire happy memories, either.

"[I feel] like throwing up," Winslet told MTV of hearing the song these days.

She paused to think that remark over, but decided, "No, actually, I do feel like throwing up...I wish I could say, 'Oh listen, everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!' But I don't. I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll."

At least she's honest!

    This movie made her a star, the song included. The cinematography and music were integral to the whole package. If you don't have something good to say, shut up. Your lousy nude scene could have been cut and the movie made better for it.

    Does she have Asperger's? I love how bluntly and honestly she speaks. We need more people just like her. Most movie stars (most people in general) are too fake. They pretend politeness.
