Aviator's Reilly In Awe Of Scorsese

Actor JOHN C REILLY had so much respect for MARTIN SCORSESE on the set of GANGS OF NEW YORK, he insisted on addressing him by his full name.

The OSCAR-nominated star, 39, preferred to call the director MR SCORSESE, even though the film-maker said he would like to be known as MARTY.

Reilly says, "It did drive him mad, I think, but to me he was like the top man and I didn't feel me calling him Marty was showing the respect I felt I owed him."

However, by the time the two reunited on THE AVIATOR, Reilly relaxed his greeting.

He adds, "Well, actually, by the end, yes, I did."
