Johnny Depp Recalls When Leonardo DiCaprio Was a Kid Hiding From His Mom

The two actors worked together on the film 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape' and he remembers what Leo was like as a teenager.

L ooking back on working with Leo, who is now currently nominated for an Oscar, Johnny says he always respected Leo’s commitment to his work:

“It was a hard time for me for some reason. It was mostly really miserable. You can’t really tell if the thing you’re feeling at the time is coincidental. Did I have to be that way for the film? I respect Leo a lot. He worked really hard on that film, researching and showing up ready to work — and I tortured him. I really did. He was always talking about these video games. ‘No I will not give you a drag from my cigarette while you hide from your mother again, Leo.’”

Johnny also remembers what it was like when he worked with Al Pacino and was in awe of the actor:

“Marlon just liked to have fun, and so did I, so I thought, ‘There’s no way I’m going to get lucky twice. This guy’s gonna hand me my ass, because he looks like the kind of guy who’s going to hand someone their ass. Anyone who’s getting their ass handed to them, it’s not Al.’”

One of Johnny’s first gigs was on the tv series 21 Jump Street and he explains that being one character so often wasn’t good for him:

“Back then you’ve got this idea of this road, and ‘I’m gonna make it mine.’ When you’re confined to a TV series and you have to play one character, it can make you insane. But it didn’t affect me. I got out in time. I didn’t want to be a salesman, I guess is what it was. So I tried to get fired a lot.”
