WATCH: 18 years after Titanic released here's the awful alternate ending you could have endured

It has been 18 years since we first watched Rose detach her lover Jack's frozen hand from that wooden raft and send him to his watery grave on Titanic.
As sappy as the ending might be, there was an alternate, much worse, ending director James Cameron thankfully thought better of using.
The alternate ending has been doing the rounds online for several years and has popped up again now on the movie's 18th anniversary.
The clip sees the elderly Rose (Gloria Stuart) explain absolutely everything at length to Brock Lovett (Bill Paxrton) just in case he (or the audience) didn't quite grasp it.
Brock also gets to hold the priceless 'Heart of the Ocean' diamond for a minute as Rose tells him he's "looking for treasure in the wrong place" and helpfully lobs the jewel into the ocean.
