Kate Winslet feels bad for Tom Cruise after hearing how amazing she is

“I’m sure he’s tired of hearing this story about how I broke his record.”

Tom Cruise had one of the most exciting box office rides of his impressive career in 2022, but Oscar winner Kate Winslet ends the year by saying, “Poor Tom.”

The ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ star has been doing the press rounds for the James Cameron film and her underwater training is the main topic. As part of her prep work, she trained to hold her breath underwater for over seven minutes, beating a record previously held by Cruise.

“Poor Tom,” Winslet told USA Today. “I mean, I don’t know Tom at all – I’ve never met him in my life – but I’m sure he’s tired of hearing this story of how I broke his record. I loved it anyway.”

Cruise’s previous record was six minutes (that’s 360 seconds) for 2015’s “Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation.” Winslet managed to hold his breath for the duration of a Quibi episode: seven minutes and 14 seconds (that’s 434 seconds).

Even Winslet was impressed by the performance, telling Total Film Magazine, “I have the video where I show up and I’m like, ‘Am I dead, have I died?’ And then: ‘What was [my time]?’ I immediately wanted to know my time. And I couldn’t believe it… The next thing I say is, ‘We’ve got to make radio.’ I wanted Jim to know right away.”

As Cameron himself quipped, “She’s not competitive at all.”

Because Cameron determined that the Avatar sequel’s underwater sequences should be as authentic as possible, his cast went through an intense training process from which Winslet benefited. Cameron told the New York Times, “Kate’s character is someone who grew up underwater as an ocean-adapted Na’vi – they’re so physically different from the forest Navi that we’d almost classify them as a subspecies. So she had to be absolutely calm underwater, and it turned out she was a natural.”

As Winslet herself told USA Today in true Fast-EGOT fashion (she’s missing a Tony Award), “I was amazed at how good I was at it and how I kept getting better.”

No word yet on how Cruise will react to that clear breath-glove throw-down.
