Adele celebrated her 30th birthday over the weekend and the Hello singer certainly went all out to mark the next chapter of her life.

Taking to Instagram, the Grammy winner shared photos from her lavish party inspired by the 1997 film Titanic.

Adele dressed up as Kate Winslet’s character Rose for the event and her costume was simply incredible.

In one snap, the Rolling In The Deep singer posed on top of a staircase which is identical to the one in the movie.

She even donned a life-jacket, just like the ones in the film, as she danced with her friends.

Adele was joined by her nearest and dearest, as well as a host of celebrity friends including Aaron Paul, Zane Lowe, Mark Ronson, Alan Carr and Sam Taylor-Johnson.

She opened up about the milestone on Instagram, “Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been blessed beyond words in my life so far.”

'Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 years with me.'

'My family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie,” she continued.

The Water Under The Bridge singer gushed about her party, “Last night was the best night of my life. Here’s a couple pics. I’m absolutely f**ked, not sure I’ll make it out the house again!,” she joked.

She also praised Childish Gambino, who dropped the video for his song This Is America yesterday, “Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to offer us so much greatness on so many platforms. I adore you x.”

Happy birthday Adele!


Tissues at the ready guys – Titanic is returning to Irish cinemas.

The Oscar winning film will celebrate its 20th anniversary later this month and in honour of this milestone, Odeon cinemas are bringing the classic love story back for one night only.

James Cameron's blockbuster starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio broke every record in the book when it was released in 1997, and while it remains a Christmas Day tradition in households across the country, many of us have never had the chance to watch the dramatic scenes play out on the big screen.

Odeon's branches in Blanchardstown, Charlestown, Coolock, Stillorgan and The Point will host the throw back to trump all throw backs on Thursday August 17, and according to the cinema's official Twitter account, you and a friend can get tickets for FREE.

It's not clear yet whether tickets will go on general sale, but make sure to keep an eye on social media for any updates.

Meanwhile, James Cameron has revealed that he is teaming up with National Geographic to create a new documentary titles, Titanic: 20th Anniversary.

The documentary will reportedly focus on the director's life while he was creating the film and will discuss the critical decisions he had to make while working on it.


Can you believe it's been 20 years since Titanic hit our screens?

It was the love story that no one could forget about, and now two decades later, there was a mini cast reunion, and we have to say, we're still swooning.

Billy Zane, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio all came together again for Leo's charity fundraiser gala in St. Tropez in France.

At the gala, Leo and Kate auctioned themselves off to have a dinner with one lucky person… but we're just wondering how much someone would pay to have all three of them in the room together.

Billy shared a photo of the three amigos on Instagram with the caption, "Gang's back together. Now we're saving icebergs. Go Figure."

We're loving Billy's caption to the snap, but it seems the Internet just loves seeing everyone back together again:


So, it's been 20 years since James Camerons' Titanic told the ultimate romantic tragedy of fictional couple Jack and Rose – or at least that's what we thought.

It has now emerged that the couple's fleeting romance may actually be based on true life events after a man claimed that his story was 'stolen' for the film's lead character, Jack Dawson. 

According to reports, Florida native, Stephen Cummings, has claimed he is the inspiration behind one of Leonardo DiCaprio's most famous roles.

Documents suggest that the director heard about Stephen's story through word of mouth about events that took place in Brevard County in 1988 and 1989.

What's more is that he claims the famous sinking scenes were not based on history, but rather the stories he told about two relatives who dies on board the ship – the wife survived and the husband did not. 

Hmmm… we can't imagine this one detail is enough for Stephen to make his case, especially seeing as he's looking $300 million and 1 per cent of royalties.

What a chancer. 



It's been 20 years since Titanic was released amid a flurry of global publicity, and in honour of the Hollywood classic's anniversary, Retro Drive-in Movies will be bringing the Di Caprio classic to the silver screen again.

Over the course of St Patrick's weekend, the world’s biggest outdoor LED screen will take up residence in Dublin's Cherrywood, and for one night only, you and the squad can revisit Jack and Rose's tragic story… and argue over whether there really was any room for Jack on that board.

And it doesn't stop there.

With a nod to the real people behind the box office smash, every ticket issued for the Titanic Drive-in will be connected to a real passenger aboard the ill fated ship, complete with the passengers name, nationality and type of ticket.

Wait, we're not done.

If Titanic isn't your thing, Retro Drive-in Movies will also be playing host to a number of other classics including Stand By Me, The Princess Bride, and Top Gun to name just three.

Tickets cost €28 (plus booking fee) per car, so if you want in on the action, pick them up here!




When Jack Dawson slipped beneath the icy waters of the Atlantic in Titanic, more than a few of us questioned whether his death could have been avoided.

And general consensus suggests that if Rose DeWitt Bukater had moved over a few damn inches on her board, the pair of them may have led a long and happy life together.

Unfortunately, James Cameron, the director of the box-office smash isn't with us on that one. But if you think Mr Cameron's opinion on Jack's fate is based on the logistics of the scene, you'd be wrong.

Jack died because, well, that's what the script demanded – simple as.

Speaking to the Daily Beast recently, the renowned director addressed the query into Jack's demise, and it sounds like he's officially done with that particular line of questioning.

"We're gonna go there? Look, it's very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, 'Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive,' It's that simple," he insisted.

And while James stands by the scene's direction, he does provide fans with an alternate ending.

"His best choice was to keep his upper body out of the water and hope to get pulled out by a boat or something before he died," James reasoned.

But he didn't, and he died.

And it's time to move on with our lives, ladies.


When it comes to the love story that was Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic, more than a few questions have been raised over the years.

Why did Rose not move over? Why did Jack not demand Rose move over? And how would the romance have played out had it been set in Dublin?

While Enya Martin, the woman who brought us Mean Girls – Dublin style, can’t offer definitive answers for the first two, she’s done an amazing job tackling the third.

In an upload which has been shared more than 11,000 times from the Giz a Laugh account, the Facebook and YouTube comedian parodies the love story which hit the silver screen almost twenty years ago, and absolutely nails it.

Brace yourselves for this one, ladies.



It's been online for almost four years now, but Kate Winslet's screen test for Titanic has started doing the rounds again in recent days, and we can't stop re-watching it.

We don't know whether it's Kate's unmistakable talent or the fact she's actually playing opposite Elton from Clueless, but this YouTube video manages to be both surreal and compelling in equal measure.

Watching Kate channel her inner Rose DeWitt Bukater to anyone other than Leonardo Di Caprio is absolutely bizarre while seeing Jeremy Sisto talk about anything other than his missing Cranberries CD is a little hard to take.

Add in the squeaking couch and the all too obvious lack of Leo, and this 20-year-old audition has us in a full tailspin.

Ladies, check this out!




An exact replica of the Titanic ship is being made and is due to make it's maiden voyage in 2018. 

The ship, which is currently being built in China, has copied the exact interiors and layout of the infamous early 1900's ship. 

We don't know about you but we are not sure we would be jumping on-board for a spin. 

Blue Star Lines is creating the replica ship which will make it's first journey from China to Dubai in two years time. 

The shipping company has said that it has already been inundated with ticket requests and the ship is said to have first, second and third class tickets just like the original cruiser. 

While the ship is almost identical to the original, it was forced to be slightly larger to meet current regulations and also has more lifeboats.

Because, obviously. 

Photos from inside the ship are eerily similar to the replicated sets seen in the film Titanic. 


It's been a huge 19 years since the world first saw Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio on screen in Titanic, and we're still not over how cute they are.

In fact, the two stars reunited at last night's Golden Globes, and even seeing them hug was enough to send Twitter into overdrive.

A clip from the show's live broadcast shows Kate and Leo chatting animatedly – no doubt about their respective Best Supporting Actress and Best Actor wins – before sharing a hug:

Jack and Rose, is that you?

Kate was one of the first to pay her congratulations to her former co-star after he accepted his award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture (Drama) for his role in The Revenant.

As for the English actress, she took home a gong for her role as Joanna Hoffman in Steve Jobs alongside Michael Fassbender.

While the pair both won last night, it remains to be seen if they'll get the same dose of good luck at the Oscars, with Leo's 22-year fight for a win still continuing.

For now though, we're just happy to see them back together – and so is everyone else, it seems:

Jack & Rose 4 EVA.



Friday is a day for flashback moments and this one is guaranteed to be your favourite so far. Coming along to absolute destroy everyone with feelings this week is Alexandrea Owens-Sarno.

You may also remember her as Jack Dawson’s “best girl” and his second-best dance partner. Now in her 20s, Alexandrea was the child actor who stole hearts and a smile from Hollywood actor Leonardo Dicaprio when she bagged a role in block buster Titanic.

Buzzfeed caught up with the actress, who lives and works in L.A to ask her some very important questions, her answers did not disappoint.

Most notably, she also believes that both Jack and Rose could fit on the door frame.

She has also admitted in an interview with Cosmopolitan that her friends were big fans of doing the obligatory ‘then and now’ comparison any time Titanic was on TV.

“My friends asked me to stand next to the television while we were watching it so that they could compare how I look now as opposed to then.”

Another important fact we needed to know; can she still do that fabulous Irish jig?

“I think if I watched and really just dedicated time to relearning it, maybe I could do it. But you also can't do it by yourself. When you're getting, like, twirled around by Leonardo DiCaprio, you just go with the moment.”

Well, we think if Leo asked any of us to dance our moves would certainly become a little bit more inspired in the spirit of the moment.

Speaking of which, Alexandrea let everyone know that Leo was just as much of a heart throb as we wanted him to be:

“There was so much of Jack in Leo, definitely. He was very sweet; he was very goofy, absolutely adorable. He always had a smile on his face, it was great.”

She said that while she wasn’t really aware of how much of a hit Leo was with the ladies back then, she still considered him one of her BFFs. She even invited him to go trick-or-treating with her.

Unfortunately it never came to pass, but Alexandrea is still waiting for the moment he shows up on her doorstep:

“He'll be like, "You've been waiting for this for almost 20 years!"



James Horner, the composer who wrote the Oscar-winning score for Titanic, has died in a plane crash.

The 61-year-old was a trained pilot and is thought to have been alone on a small plane when it crashed north of Santa Barbara on Monday morning.

One of Hollywood’s most legendary composers, Mr Horner worked on the films A Beautiful Mind, Braveheart, Troy, Apollo 13, as well as three James Cameron films.

He won two Oscars for Titanic which included the Best Original song award and the Best Dramatic Score award. He was nominated for another eight Oscars. The late composer boasts 158 credits for various TV and film projects.

In a 2009 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Mr Horner explained the importance of the nature of his work. “My job is to make sure at every turn of the film it’s something the audience can feel with their heart.”

“When we lose a character, when somebody wins, when somebody loses, when someone disappears – at all times I’m keeping track, constantly, of what the heart is supposed to be feeling. That is my primary role.”

Since the composer’s tragic death, tributes from Hollywood’s most revered have been pouring in.

Celine Dion, the singer of My Heart Will Go On has released a statement saying she is “deeply saddened” by the talented composer’s “tragic death.”
