Washington D.C, Feb 6 (ANI): Johnny Depp has revealed that he “tortured” Leonardo DiCaprio, while the two were shooting the flick ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.’
During the 31st annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the ‘Black Mass’ actor, who starred as the titular character, a man who must care for his autistic brother Arnie (DiCaprio), in the 1993’s movie, was presented with the Maltin Modern Master Award for his accomplishments in the film industry, People magazine reported.
The 52-year-old actor said, “It was a hard time for me, that film, for some reason. I don’t know why. I tortured him,” adding, “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.'”
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star noted that though his relationship with the then 19-year-old DiCaprio was not good, he respects the ‘Titanic’ star a lot as he worked really hard on that film, researching and showing up ready to work. (ANI)
