Actress Kate Winslet has revealed film star Leonardo DiCaprio teased her about her 'big feet' when they were filming the Oscar-winning movie, Titanic.

The actress, from Reading, Berkshire, has size 10 feet and told an American chat show that Leonardo jokingly referred to them as her "canoes".

Winslet said to show host Conan O'Brien: "I have real big feet."

The actress, 28, married film director Sam Mendes, 38, last May after divorcing Jim Threapleton in 2001.

'Taking the mick'

She became a mother for the second time after giving birth to a son, Joe, last December.

She already has a three-year-old daughter, Mia, from her first marriage.

During the show, Winslet said: "I would put my foot up and he (DiCaprio) would fall about laughing because my feet are exactly the same size as his.

"He referred to them as my canoes."

She put her feet on the table for the cameras and said: "Leonardo DiCaprio took great delight in taking the mick out of the size of my feet.

"You know you do palm-to-palm with a friends ... Leo would make me do foot-to-foot.

"We would sit on the floor and he would say 'come on sweetie - foot-to- foot'."
