Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet set a new record for holding her breath under water while filming a scene for “Avatar: The Way of Water.”
She managed to hold her breath for an impressive seven minutes and 47 seconds, beating actor Tom Cruise’s previous record of six minutes, which he set while filming a sequence for “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” in 2015.
In an interview with USA Today, Winslet admitted that even Cruise must be a little annoyed that she surpassed him with the stunt.
She said, “I don’t know Tom at all – I’ve never met him in my life – but I’m sure he’s getting very fed up of hearing this story of how I broke his record.”
Winslet revealed that her husband, Edward Abel Smith (formerly known as Ned Rocknroll), helped her practice for the breath-holding stunt.
She said, “Ned is an extremely fit, healthy person and is capable of a great many things.
He trained with me so that if I needed to practice without our instructor there we were safe because you really can’t do it by yourself. It’s the same as scuba diving: You have to have a buddy.”
