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.”
