“I turned 21 on that shoot, and Leo turned 22,” she said, admitting that making the James Cameron-directorial “wasn’t pleasant” for either party. 
“But we were all in it together. Though he had way more days off than I ever bloody did. I guess I was raised to be grateful and just get on with it,” she continued. 

“I didn’t feel it was my right to be miserable, and if I was miserable I certainly would not have let a journalist know. There is no way I would have let that slip!”
