Cameron, who is converting the 1997 Oscar-winning film into 3-D for re-release in April 2012, the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking, told the Los Angeles Times: "Gloria's so alive, and her creativity, her artistry and the sparkle in her eyes is a challenge to all of us to live as fully and richly as she has and will continue to do as she heads into her 101st year."
