Glaudini alleges that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor called her a 'f**king idiot' for laughing as instructed by director Ted Demme during his monologue in a resurfaced interview.

AceShowbiz - A representative for Johnny Depp has spoken up after the actor was accused of berating his "Blow" co-star. In a resurfaced interview, Lola Glaudini claimed that the three-time Oscar nominee called her a "f**king idiot" for laughing as intrusted by director Ted Demme during his monologue.

Denying the allegation by the actress, the rep for Johnny told Variety, "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."

The rep pointed to Samuel Sarkar, who was credited as a sound technician on "Blow" and also worked with Depp on films such as "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "Chocolat". Most recently, Sarkar produced Depp's film "Minamata" along with the actor.

Sharing his own experience working with Depp, Sarkar said in a statement regarding Glaudini's story, "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."

In an episode of the "Powerful Truth Angels" podcast from earlier this year, Glaudini said she was instructed by "Blow" director Demme to "burst out laughing" when Depp said one of his lines during the take. "[Depp] says his monologue. I hear the cue, and I go haha, I do a big laugh or whatever," she recalled, noting she performed the scene this way during a few other takes.

She said of Johnny's reaction, "Johnny Depp, when they say cut, walks over to me, comes up to me, sticks his finger in my face 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. Oh, now, oh now it's not so funny? Now you can shut up? Now you can f**king shut the f**k up? The quiet that you are right now, that's how you f**king stay.' "

"First day, on the set, I've never met him," Glaudini added. "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. The only thing going through my head was, 'Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry.' " She claimed that the "21 Jump Street" alum gave "a non-apology apology" to her when the two saw each other on set later in the day.

Glaudini said she told her father after Depp allegedly yelled at her and he told her, "You have two choices right now: you can either say f**k this, f**k you, and I'm not going to be spoken to like that, or you never let him see you sweat."

The "Criminal Minds" star said she went with the latter option when Depp allegedly came up to her and "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. So I'm a little tense and stuff. So 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.' Because I was like... my dad said, 'Don't let them see you sweat.' So that was that," she recounted.

Glaudini said Demme, who died less than a year after the film's release, "did not come over and say anything" when she allegedly got berated by Depp and "when we wrapped, I was like a pariah. No one wanted to talk to me, because I am the b***h who he railed at."
