    Here's What The Little Girl From "Titanic" Looks Like Now

    AKA the girl we were all super jealous of growing up because she got to dance with Leonardo DiCaprio.

    We all remember the adorable little girl from Titanic, Cora Cartmell.

    Remember when she danced with Jack at the third-class dance party?

    But then Rose showed up and totally cut in.

    And she threw Rose subtle but pointed shade for stealing her man, and it was amazing.

    Cora was played by Alexandrea Owens, and according to her Facebook page, she's still "pursuing an acting career."

    Since her days as Cora, she's perfected the art of winged eyeliner.

    And knows how to rock a flannel shirt.

    It also seems she's still honing her craft with improv classes.

    She has a pretty cool crew.

    She's into Bob's Burgers, which is neat.

    But most importantly, she still remembers her Titanic days quite well, and treated her fans to a behind-the-scenes glimpse.

    She also shared just when she found out she landed the iconic role.

    Here's the full text from her Facebook post.

    "My mom found an essay I wrote in elementary school documenting the Titanic process. Some highlights: "I've always wanted to be an actress... I could never forget the day I heard my mother say, 'This is your chance of being in a movie.' That hot day in third grade that I heard those words was the best day of my life." And: "All of a sudden I heard my mom scream, 'They put you in the movie.' I was so excited I felt like flying. It was a miracle. I was so happy." And the essay ends with "On the Oscars there was a clip for Titanic and I, Alexandrea Kathryn Owens-Sarno, was in the clip. I was so proud of myself. I couldn't believe it. That was the start of my career." Sometimes we have hard times, and a lot of the time we may have doubts, but the little kid in us chose the path we were supposed to take. We owe it to the child in us to follow our dreams no matter what. No one can ever tell you you can't, especially yourself. I received a beautiful gift today, the rekindling of my passion and how much faith I've had in myself since I was little. Wow."

    You're still our best girl, Cora. ⚓️ 💙
