A dispatch from the land of important polls: We totally heart Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio together on-screen. In fact, we like them so much that we (or a representative group of us) voted them the most romantic on-screen couple ever.
The poll, conducted jointly by ABC and People magazine, ranked Kate and Leo tops for their on-screen chemistry in “Titanic.” We’re guessing the representative group skipped “Revolutionary Road,” which re-teamed the couple as a dysfunctional pair of suburbanites.
Why this poll is being released now, on March 23, rather than on
Valentine’s Day isn’t clear. What is clear is that we, or that
representative group of us, are nothing if not predictable.
Winslet and DiCaprio beat out Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh (“Gone with the Wind”), Richard Gere and Julia Roberts (“Pretty Woman”), Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman (“Casablanca”) and Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (“Adam’s Rib”) to take the title.
Who is your favorite on-screen romantic couple?
