I can't believe it's taken me 25 years to realise that it's not true.

I'm gutted. I can't cry at the love story now because I know it's not real 😒

I can't be the only one?!

Erm, might just be you.

I did meet a teen a while ago who thought the whole thing was fictional.

I've heard of people thinking the titanic was fictional but never someone thinking the love story was real

How did you come to finaly realise?

I didn't realise😂 My partner told me.

I'm gutted actually. I really did think it was real😒

I sometimes have to correct my students' mistaken notions about the fate of Tsar Nikolai II's family. Thanks to the animated film "Anastasia," some students are very confused indeed!

Saw the movie when i was 11. Knew the ship existed and also realised the story was not real. I can still cry to it though(in all fairness i cry at lots of things)

I read a book that was written by a survivor of the titanic and it was vaguely similar to the film, a young girl was taken aboard as a housemaid by a rich woman and had a romance with one of the staff on the titanic. I can't remember what it was called but it was loaned to me by a workmate whose daughter was reading it for school.

Well, the film came out in 1997 so it can't be 25 years!! Obviously lots of trie stories from Titanic but not a real story no....

^ I mean, clearly Leonardo and Kate (Rose and Jack?) was very fictional!

Um... well it's a tribute to Leo and Kate's acting I guess - erm - not sure how you could think it tbh!

I thought the love story was real and the mum who gets the children to go to sleep was as well.

Is the heart of the ocean jewel Real? I'm sure I remember some expedition to find it.

I sympathise OP. It took me bloody years to click that she died af the end of the film!

U2HasTheEdge Sat 11-Jun-16 22:59:36

I thought it was real too

Hate the stupid film though. Soppy crap that my husband loves and gets all teary eyed over.
