Washington, Jan 22 (ANI): Film director Terry Gilliam has revealed that actor Benicio Del Toro was frightening and frustrating” on the set of Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas.

The 68-year-old moviemaker feared Del Toro was “out of control” for much of the 1998 movie.

“He gets pretty deep into his character, and sometimes I thought he was out of control. What I found out is he’’s frightening, Contactmusic quoted Gilliam as telling Rolling Stone magazine.

“He required a lot of handling, and, after a while, his need to be so intense wore a lot of us out.

I think he felt he wasn”t getting as much attention from me as he wanted, but, as far as I was concerned, I was giving him more than anybody else got. It was frustrating. Always, he added.

But, Gilliam was delighted by the end result.

“You”ve got this incredible performance,” he added. (ANI)
