Obvi the Titanic love story between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio was totes epic (and apparently still going IRL)!

But the Oscar-winning movie might not have been as fictional as even its writers thought!

According to newly translated documents, there may have been a real woman named Rose on the RMS Titanic who not only survived the infamous wreck- she wrote about it!

Letters dated in 1955 and signed by a Rose Amélie Icard describe in terrifying detail the scene on that fateful night:

"Towards eleven o'clock Mrs. Stone [Icard's employer] and I went to bed. Three quarters of an hour later, as the liner was cruising at full speed, a terrifying shock threw us out of bed…

…we witnessed unforgettable scenes where horror mixed with the most sublime heroism. Women, still in evening gowns, some just out of bed, barely clothed, disheveled, distraught, scrambled for the boats…

Near me were two handsome elderly [people], Mr. and Mrs. Straus, proprietors of the great store Macy's of New York. She refused to go into the boat after having helped in her maid…

She put her arms around the neck of her husband, telling him: 'We have been married 50 years, we have never left each other, I want to die with you.'"

Wow. That was just as harrowing and sad and romantic as the James Cameron movie! How incredible!

You can read more from the amazing letters HERE, but don't hold your breath for a Jack. There's only one Leo.

    i thought this was the case all along? Wasn't it the real rose who threw the necklace into the ocean in the final scene??

    There in FACT was a Jack Dawson on board the Titanic. He worked and died in the boiler room. He is buried in Halifax,Nova Scotia, Canada, with many hundreds of the others who did not survive that night.

    This isn't really new. Go to the Titanic Museum in Tenn. there is info about the REAL Rose there (and pictures), has been for years. Same about the real Jack, as someone has said.

    I went to the Titanic museum in Branson and you get a card of a passenger and find out if you survive or died at the end. My sister actually got the card of Mrs. Straus. She was one of the people who made it in the movie. It was the old couple who were laying on the bed together while the ship was sinking.
