Kate Winslet ‘Very Proud’ to Beat Tom Cruise’s Underwater Filming Record with ‘Avatar 2’

Kate Winslet told Entertainment Tonight this week she’s “very proud” to have beaten Tom Cruise’s record for the longest underwater breath hold in a feature film. Tom Cruise held his breath underwater for six minutes while filming “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” but Winslet beat him by over a minute, holding her breath for seven minutes and 14 seconds while filming an underwater scene for James Cameron’s “Avatar 2.”

“It was brilliant and I was very proud of myself and I’ll probably never be able to do it again,” Winslet said. “That came at the end of four weeks worth of quite intense training and it was in the dive tank, it was in the training tank. But I loved it.”
