Kate Winslet: ‘I Thought I’d Died’ After Breaking Tom Cruise’s Breath-hold Record

-

While freedive training for James Cameron’sAvatar 2,” Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet broke Tom Cruise’s on-film breath-hold record.

Cruise reportedly trained to hold his breath for six minutes during filming for a “Mission: Impossible” movie a few years ago.

According to an interview published this week in The Guardian, Winslet talked more about her previously reported seven-minute, 14-second static breath-hold:

“God, it’s just wonderful. Your mind completely drifts off. You can’t think about anything, you can’t make lists in your head, you’re just looking at the bubbles underneath you.”

Winslet also spoke about the safety aspect of the training and always needing a buddy. Her husband Ned Abel Smith trained with her “and he got quite good at the breath holding as well. But he did … black out.”

She also talked about how she felt after the breath-hold:

“My first words were: ‘Am I dead?’ Yes, I thought I’d died!”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Winslet will play a character called Ronal.

Avatar 2” is scheduled for release in December 2022 after being delayed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
