Celine Dion -- ever the consummate professional -- admitted to empathising with Kate Winslet, the lead actress from the 1997 film, when Kate revealed earlier this year that the hit song made her "feel like throwing up".

"'My Heart Will Go On' gave me the opportunity to be associated with a classic that will live forever. If I just count how many times I've sung it, maybe it'll get me sick," the Canadian singer, 44, said on the Today show in the US over night. "If [Kate] feels tired just hearing it, and, like, throwing up, I'm glad she was not the one singing it."

In March, when 'Titanic' was re-released in 3D to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the fateful voyage, Kate admitted to MTV News about her distaste for the song.

"I wish I could say, 'Oh listen, everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!' But I don't," Kate said. "I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll," adding that the hit song makes her "feel like throwing up."

While the song may induce nausea in many a person, since being released in May 1997 the single has more than 15 million copies worldwide, making it one of the highest selling singles in history.
