"I told Leo, 'You're not my friend,'" he says. "We're not repped by the same people. This is 18-whatever-year it is and this is how we talk.'"
In "Django Unchained," Jamie stars as the titular character, a freed slave-turned-bounty hunter in the pre-Civil War South. Leo plays ruthless plantation owner Calvin Candie, the cruel owner of Django's beloved wife.
Jamie tells Oprah that Leo was all in character that silent day on set. "He went way in to where it's like, 'Okay, now you're really going there,'" Jamie says. "And that was what was needed."
