James Cameron Cried The First Time He Heard James Horner’s ‘Titanic’ Theme

Legendary film composer James Horner died in a plane crash on Monday, but he will always be remembered for his music.

Horner was best known for his two-time Oscar-winning score to James Cameron’s “Titanic,” as well as his scores to “Braveheart,” “Apollo 13,” “Avatar,” “Field of Dreams” and “A Beautiful Mind.” The 61-year-old, who has composed music for over 100 films, was also an avid pilot. The two-seater single-engine S312 Tucano he was flying on Monday crashed in Santa Barbara, California.

While many celebrities, collaborators and fellow musicians have remembered Horner on Twitter, Cameron paid tribute to the composer on The Hollywood Reporter’s site on Tuesday. The “Titanic” director looked back on working with Horner on everything from the first project they both worked on, “Battle Beyond the Stars,” up to “Avatar.” Although the two got off to a rough start while working on “Aliens” together because of timing issues, the filmmaker said that he knew he had to work with Horner again on “Titanic,” telling THR, “I thought, ‘I don’t care what happened, I want to work with James.'”

Cameron remembered the first time he heard Horner’s concept for the “Titanic” theme. “I drove over to his house,” Cameron said of Horner, “and he sat at the piano and said, ‘I see this as the main theme for the ship.’ He played it once through and I was crying.” When the director heard Horner play his idea for “Rose’s Theme,” he said he knew the musician had “cracked the heart and soul” of the movie.

The filmmaker told Entertainment Weekly that he cried during every song Horner played that day in his studio. “I said to him, ‘You’ve done it,'” Cameron told EW. “He said, ‘I haven’t done anything yet.’ And I said, ‘James, you’ve done it.'”

Kim Kardashian Cried When Kanye Overhauled Her Closet

Kim Kardashian just confirmed that hubby Kanye West was indeed super instrumental in turning her into one of today’s most stylish celebs—and it sounds like he was pretty ruthless throughout the makeover process.


“When we first started dating, he went through my closet and he had a stylist come in and they put everything he thought wasn’t cool enough in a pile. I walked in and it was like a pile to the ceiling of shoes, all my amazing shoes that I loved. I started crying,” she explained on Live! With Kelly and Michael yesterday. “I put it all in another room and I was like, ‘I’ll trust your opinion, but I’m not getting rid of my stuff.’ Then I walk in my room and there was an entire room filled of all new clothes, of all the stuff he wanted to fill back up my closet with. It was really cool new designer stuff; I hadn’t even heard of some of these designers before, and it really helped me fall in love with fashion.”

Kanye didn’t stop after the initial round either—he nixed the Balmain pantsuit she planned on wearing on Live! right before Kim walked out the door, telling her, “I think you should be a little more simple today.”

Lest the world think its favorite selfie-taker is totally at the hands of Kanye, know that she sticks up for herself too. “Sometimes I tell him to dress it up a little bit,” she said, calling her hubby’s style “very simple.” And when he tried to also advise her on hair after the Balmain switcheroo, she stuck to her guns, telling him “You only get one thing: outfit or glam.”

Oh, and Kim admitted she did eventually get rid of most of the stuff from that initial purge (maybe it’s what the world’s been buying on eBay).
