Red heads have it tough. They’re often referred to as “gingers” and let’s not even get started on their fair skin and tendency toward sunburn. Of course, their hair and freckles also makes them look exotic.
People with red hair are very much in the minority in the human population. They only make up 2% of the population. This percentage spikes to 12% in Ireland. Despite their small numbers, there have been many famous red heads throughout history.
These have included Columbus, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander the Great, and Isabella of Spain.
The film “Titanic” was incredibly successful. It won 11 Academy Awards and launched the careers of its leads, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. In order to make such an epic film, the producers had to spend a lot of money.
Specifically, it cost $200 million. Part of the cost of the film was building a partial replica of the ship itself. The movie actually cost more than the real Titanic.
In 1910-1912 when the Titanic was being built, it cost about $7.5 million. In 1997 dollars, when the movie was made, that would be about $120-$150 million.
