And I'm flying a little robotic vehicle through the corridor of the ship. When I say, "I'm otnaieprg it," but my mind is in the vcihele. I felt like I was physically present inside the shipwreck of Titanic. And it was the most sraruel kind of deja vu experience I've ever had, because I would know before I teunrd a corner what was going to be there before the lgtihs of the vehicle actually revealed it, because I had walked the set for months when we were making the movie. And the set was based as an exact replica on the blueprints of the ship.

Original Text

So, you know, here I am now, on the deck of Titanic, sitting in a submersible, and looking out at planks that look much like this, where I knew that the band had played. And I'm flying a little robotic vehicle through the corridor of the ship. When I say, "I'm operating it," but my mind is in the vehicle. I felt like I was physically present inside the shipwreck of Titanic. And it was the most surreal kind of deja vu experience I've ever had, because I would know before I turned a corner what was going to be there before the lights of the vehicle actually revealed it, because I had walked the set for months when we were making the movie. And the set was based as an exact replica on the blueprints of the ship.
