Tantalizing Trivia: What's Eating Gilbert Grape

During filming of What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), animal protection agents were actually on set to look out for the well being of the grasshopper in the famous mailbox scene.

Although the scene was only meant to mimic the appearance of the death of the insect-actor, Leonardo DiCaprio actually killed it by accident.

He was fined $250,000 for the murder of a co-star. Just kidding. They flushed it.
