Joel EdgertonJoel Edgerton insists he hasn't fallen out with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Australian star - who has been filming alongside the American actor in the highly anticipated movie The Great Gatsby - sparked rumors of a bitter feud between the pair after he revealed there was an "unhealthy friction" between him and Leonardo's character, Jay Gatsby, in one of the film's key scenes.

"For me Tom is a beast that has to exist on set and it's in me and it comes out of me and I enjoy it. There's a kind of unhealthy friction that exists between Leo and I on set," he said.

His comments provoked claims of a rivalry between the two stars but the 38-year-old actor insists they got along really well and told American breakfast show Good Morning America his remarks were misinterpreted: "I think that was taken a little bit out of context. We got along really well... The Plaza scene, we shot for a number of days and the tension was very high when we rolled but we had a good time off set."
