Screen star Matthew Mcconaughey has blasted persistent rumours that he was offered the lead role in TITANIC.

The HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN TEN DAYS actor storms, "I was never offered it! That is so not true.

"I did meet with (director) JIM CAMERON and we did discuss the role and I did have a very good audition but as far as I'm aware, it was LEONARDO DICAPRIO's job anyway. I'd like to set the record straight there."
