Kate Winslet has explained why she decided to work with James Cameron again despite previously swearing off a reunion.

Winslet and Cameron worked together on 1997's Titanic, and Cameron recently said he believes Winslet was "traumatised" by the experience.

Back in 1999, in an interview with The Guardian, the Oscar-winning actress said it would take a massive payday for her to consider working with Cameron again.

"He has a temper like you wouldn't believe... You'd have to pay me a lot of money to work with Jim again." she told the publication.

What did Winslet say about Cameron?

However, over two decades later, the pair reunited on Avatar: The Way of Water.

Winslet went back to work with Cameron as she believes both of them have matured over the years.

"He's driven and determined the way he always was but, my god, he's just such a genius," she explained.

"To watch him at work and to see the detail that goes into it, he's really running the show.

"He's the only one who ultimately knows what needs to happen in order to achieve his vision. And he's always right.

"What's lovely is that, when he isn't right, now he will say: 'That was kind of a mistake. That was never really gonna work, but I just wanted to try it to see and yes I was wrong'.

"So it's really kind of reassuring to know that he is able to say 'I could've had a better idea for that thing'. Any of us are like that, so I really appreciated that about Jim. It was fantastic."
