“It’s technically not a door,” he explained, before adding, “It’s a piece of wood paneling from the first-class cabin.”

The director said he will give the hotly debated fan theory a “criminal investigation” in the upcoming documentary, which will be released on February 5.

The show will scientifically recreate exactly what Jack and Rose endured when the Titanic sank in the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The sexy multiples were chosen based on similarities in body types to DiCaprio and Winslet.
