Speaking at a global press conference ahead of the film’s premiere, she said: “I actually have a video of the moment I come out of that breathless state.

“And the only reason I have it is because my husband snuck in.

“I said, ‘Please don’t come because I don’t want you to video. I’ll just feel pressured, please don’t do that’ and he snuck in.

She continued: “I have a video of me emerging and saying, ‘Am I dead? Am I dead yet?’ And then go ‘what is it?’ – immediately I want to know my time.

“I couldn’t believe it was 7:15 but was told it was 7:15 – you want to know what I say next? We need to set up the radio station.

Cameron admitted: “I am still angry because I have been a free diver for 50 years and you have ignored me and the others.
