‘Dad’s Dead, Dad’s Dead!’ Shut Up Leo!

At the 31st annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Thursday, February 4, Johnny Depp recounted how he gave Leonardo DiCaprio a really rough time on the set of Gilbert Grape.

“It was a hard time for me, that film, for some reason. I don’t know why. I tortured him. I really did,” said Depp.

Depp went on, “He was always talking about these videos games, you know? I told you it was kind of a dark period.” Adding, “‘No, I will not give you a drag of my cigarette while you hide from your mother again, Leo.'”

Leo was 19 at the time and Depp was 30. Yea, that actually does sound pretty annoying. You can practically visualize Depp tilting his head back and going, “Ugggghhhhhhfffuuuuhhh,” every time Leo started talking to him.

And a Gilbert Grape post wouldn’t be complete with this clip of Leo.
