Johnny Depp Says He 'Tortured' Leonardo DiCaprio During 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape' Filming

Johnny Depp opened up about Leonardo DiCaprio while presenting him with an award this weekend at the 2016 Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

The 52-year-old actor worked with the 41-year-old actor on 1993′s What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.

“It was a hard time for me, that film, for some reason. I don’t know why,” Johnny said (via EW). “I tortured him.”

Johnny added, “I really did. He was always talking about these videos games, you know? I told you it was kind of a dark period. ‘No, I will not give you a drag of my cigarette while you hide from your mother again, Leo.’”

“I’d say the absolute truth is that I respect Leo a lot,” Johnny continued. “He worked really hard on that film and spent a lot of time researching. He came to set and he was ready to work hard and all his ducks were in a row.”
