Johnny Depp has addressed the allegations that he berated co-star Lola Glaudini on the set of their 2001 movie, Blow.

The 60-year-old played drug kingpin George Jung in the flick, opposite Penelope Cruz, Jaime King, Ray Liotta and Emma Roberts, while Ted Demme served as director.

Glaudini starred as Rada in the crime drama and has also appeared in the Sopranos, The King of Queens, Criminal Minds and The Expanse.

During an appearance on the Powerful Truth Angels podcast, she opened up about her time working with Depp – alleging that he berated her on her very first day on set.

Depp has since addressed her comments, claiming that his former co-star’s recollection ‘differs’ from their colleagues.

A rep for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor told Metro.co.uk: ‘Johnny always prioritizes good working relationships with cast and crew and this recounting differs greatly from the recollection of other members on set at the time.’


They also pointed to Sam Sarkar, who worked in the sound department on Blow – as well as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Chocolat – and claimed he heard nothing out of the ordinary.

‘I worked on that movie in the sound department,’ Sarkar said. ‘As a sound person, you’re constantly listening to what is going on on set, listening for noises, listening for chatter. In fact, specifically, I would listen to Johnny’s audio to check for interference, both during rehearsals and during the take.

‘I never heard anything like that – and that would have been a remarkable event.’

A clip from the episode, which was initially released in January, has resurfaced on social media – in which the actress, 52, explained that her first scene included wearing a bikini and sitting on a rug while he completed a monologue.

Glaudini recalled the moment that, after a couple of takes, director Demme approached her and urged her to burst out laughing when Depp said a specific word.

‘He says his monologue, I hear the cue and I go, “hahaha”. I do a big laugh. Carries on the scene, cut, back to one and going again,’ she continued, noting that this continued for several takes,’ she began.

‘Johnny Depp, when they say cut, walks over to me, comes up to me, sticks his finger in my face – and I’m in a bikini on the ground – and he comes over and he goes, “Who the f**k do you think you are? Who the f**k do you think you are? Shut the f**k up. I’m out here, and I’m trying to f**king say my lines and you’re f**king pulling focus.

‘”You f**king idiot. Who the f**k do you think… Oh, now it’s not so funny? Now you can shut up? Now you can f**king shut the f**k up? Oh it’s not funny now?

‘”The quiet that you are right now, that’s how you f**king stay.”’

Glaudini shared that she was taken aback by his reaction, and continued: ‘First day on the set, I’ve never met him. This was my first studio movie, I’ve just done indies until then. And I have the star who I have idolized, who I am so excited to work with, reamed me in my face,’ she told the host.

‘The only thing going through my head was, “Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry.”’

She also claimed that Demme didn’t intervene and set the record straight on his direction, and instead ‘totally hung me out to dry’.

When filming eventually wrapped for the day, after another few hours of work, she alleged that she was seen as a ‘pariah’ by her colleagues, and that no one wanted to speak to her after the incident.

Glaudini recalled rushing to her trailer and hyperventilating once they were finally done for the day, before Depp pulled her aside for a ‘non-apology apology’.

She added: ‘[He said]: You know, so earlier I was really in my head and staying in my character, I’m doing this Boston accent, and it’s really f**king with me. I’m a little tense and stuff. I just wanted to make sure we’re cool and everything.”

‘I just looked at him, and I was like, “I don’t know what you’re talking about? Of course, what are you talking about? Totally cool.”

‘So that was that. And then we had six weeks in Acapulco.’
