Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet starrer Titanic's alternative ending has resurfaced on Twitter and has left fans in a spirited debate with many laughing over the scene and others wondering if the film would've won an Oscar had the makers decided to go forth with the optional ending.
In the actual ending of the movie, an older Rose throws the "heart of the ocean" necklace overboard secretly.
However, the alternative ending shows Rose imparting a word of wisdom to treasure hunter Brock Lovett before chucking the necklace in the ocean. Rose says to Lovett "You look for treasure in the wrong places, Mr Lovett. Only life is priceless, and making each day count,"
Since being shared online, the clip has garnered over one million views, with many reactions from netizens.
"The alternate ending to Titanic is hilarious. This would have absolutely ruined the film for me," said Pat Brennan, a Twitter user.

Yeah, the solitary tossing the necklace over the edge was a much better ending. This one is cheesey af— Hailey (@HaileySayHello) February 17, 2021

The only way this could’ve been worse is if there was a shot of the jewellery reaching the bottom of the ocean and landing in the hand of a skeleton wearing Jack’s clothes lmao— Philip (@TheWatcherIsBae) February 18, 2021

Much like the Arnie smiling deleted scene in T2.. WTF was Cameron thinking even filming this??!— Dr. Terence Wynn PhD (@DoctorWynn) February 17, 2021
So do you think with that ending it still would've won best picture and 11 Oscars? 🤣🤣— Adarsh Rao (@adi1486) February 16, 2021
That was really awful. Part of what makes the existing ending work is that she kept the diamond all those years and nobody else knew. Without her secret intact, it opens the story up again when it needs to be closed. Cameron definitely made the correct choice.— Eric Moore (@erictylermoore) February 17, 2021
The 1997 epic love story set in the backdrop of a sinking ship became a huge success on its release and became the highest-grossing film of all time. It won 11 Academy Awards.
