Speaking at the film festival, Johnny Depp revealed that he respected Leonardo DiCaprio a lot though it might not have always come across that way on the sets of What's Eating Gilbert Grape. He went on to say that Leonardo DiCaprio worked really hard on that film, spent hours researching and he came on sets with a natural readiness in him.
