David O. Russell in the hood

I finally saw the outrageous leaked video from the movie "I Heart Huckabees"
I'm not going to post the "Youtube" video because I just can't. It's appauling and upsetting beyond belief. Was this punk ass director really berating a comedic living legend this way? Is this for real? And if so, can someone drop David (the punk) in the middle of Compton in the middle of the night and force him to walk down Crenshaw screaming the N word all the while. That's the next scene I'd like to see from this miserable half a man. Then we'll see how tough he really is.

I don't give a rats ass what Lily Tomlin did or said to him, he should have a SHIT load more respect and control than to go off on a mad tirade..I mean this man actually used the C word on Ms. Lily Tomlin. I can't even imagine.

I am an aspiring screenwriter..broke and frustrated at trying to get a hollywood read and I can honestly sit here and say...If David O. Russell came to me tomorrow and offered to direct one of my films, I would run from him and continue to recycle bottles for food, and continue to allow myself to be mentally abused in the realm of commercial production work while waiting for my next opportunity. AND I MEAN IT!!!

One of the best things about a director is his or her ability to communicate with the talent. It's obvious this man can't communicate, so why does he continue to work? I also read that he didn't get along with George Clooney on the set of "The Three Kings" either. I've never met Mr. Clooney but have heard he's one of the nicest and clearly talented men in the business. So umm err where does the problem lie? With that miserable David O. Russell...the plague of directors. Actors should boycott working with him. But I know what'll's just gonna get worse, until a physical altercation rears its head. Actor or Actress..Legend or one is safe from a misogynistic, self loathing, impudent man, doubling as a director. Not to slander or anything but...I can only imagine a MAN going off on a woman (he's not having sex with )in that manner and that publicly if he's COKED up. And my writers mind can imagine a bus load of things. Just say no!

and damned if I don't love"Flirting with Disaster" and "I heart Huckabees"...Ms. Lily Tomlin being the highlight of both.

Crenshaw Blvd. doesn't run through Compton. Crenshaw goes from Wilshire Blvd. south to Pacific Coast Highway. It goes through the Baldwin Hills area and then through Inglewood, but it's far west of Compton. Just thought I'd add that.

By the way, I saw the Youtube clip and it seemed that Lily Tomlin was acting like a spoiled primadonna. I imagine that if a director allows a self-absorbed actor to get his or her way all the time, the whole shoot could be compromised. Cry no tears for Tomlin.

I cry tears for any woman who gets called the c word as if it's a bad thing, when all men had to pass through the c word to get here.

And you have given me a little more info about Compton or Crenshaw than I need...since I'm from the east coast..I'll be more specific with my east coast hood...drop him off in Bushwick..near Dekalb & Cornelia. And this man also had it out with George Clooney. thanks for the read anonymous person

Well, if you'd like to see a few more instances of entertainment-types losing their cool, go to and type in "Paul Anka" and "tirade" to hear him go off on his unwitting band members. And if you Google "Casey Kasem" and "tirade" you'll hear a clip of him going off on one of his radio programmers. There's also a clip of Jack Palance yelling at a woman who is trying to direct him as he's recording a radio spot. The business seems to encourage asshole-ism.
