When asked by Kate about how she would’ve reacted to those trollers back then, she said “I would have said, ‘Don’t you dare treat me like this. I’m a young woman. My body is changing. I’m figuring it out. I’m deeply insecure. I’m terrified. Don’t make this any harder than it already is.”

She also went into the scientific details of the film’s ending and explained “I have to be honest. I actually don’t believe that we would have survived if we had both gotten on that door.

So you heard it here for the first time: Yes, he could have fit on that door, but it would not have stayed afloat.”
