“You can’t act worth a damn. I only hired you because we couldn’t afford Jessica Chastain. You have cankles. Wait, you’re not crying yet. Okay, while on my way over here, I stopped by your house and kicked your new kitten.” – David O. Russell in that picture, probably.
There’s been story after story about how director David O. Russell is a throbbing dick slit wart and working with him is about as pleasant and easy as using hot sauce as lube to butt bone yourself with a durian fruit. Cases in point: David O had a cuntastic meltdown and went after Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees. He allegedly molested his niece’s chest in a gym. He made a studio executive cry on the set of Joy. And that’s probably just the tip of the dick wad iceberg. Now here’s another story about what a piece of butt corn he is and I’m sure David O doesn’t mind it. Because every time a story about him being a nip pimple comes out, he stops punching a blind orphan puppy to cackle into the night sky over everyone being reminded of his asshole ways.
“Nope.” – that Ariana Grande dog
Those who say that Melissa Rivers should get a dozen gold medals in coattail riding since she’s built an entire career out of being Joan Rivers’ daughter need to temporarily stop hating and bow down, because she has gone next level. Melissa is now wearing the coat. Melissa tells People that David O. Russell asked her if she would do a little cameo as the late Joan Rivers in Joy and she did it, because duh, she obviously lives by her mother’s motto: never turn down a job. Melissa plays Joan in a scene that happens at QVC studios.
When Joan Rivers was still alive, Jennifer Lawrence pissed on Fashion Police for being a big ole’ big meanie mean show, but Melissa says that JLaw was nice to her.
“My mother had a couple lovely encounters with Bradley and she was a fan of Jen’s even though there was a situation once at Fashion Police where someone said something and Jennifer didn’t like it and kind of fired back. Even though we had that disagreement that really had nothing to do with her, I was a huge fan,’ and quoted back her favorite Fashion Police line ever to me: ‘That dress is so ugly it looks like it would be good at math.’ So here she is quoting my own show back to me, then she said to David, ‘I’m so happy you brought me someone to play with!'”
The clip of Melissa as Joan from Entertainment Tonight is below and it’s so weird, creepy and awkward that I think I love it. It’s giving me “Joan Crawford playing her daughter’s character in that soap opera” vibes.
One word: MESS. If Melissa Rivers starts doing Fashion Police as Joan Rivers, I may have to start watching Fashion Police again.
Last week, professional cool cousin Jennifer Lawrence wrote a long essay for Lenny about how pissed off she was about the Hollywood wage gap. Thanks to the Sony hack, JLaw discovered that the numbers on her paycheck for American Hustle were a lot smaller than those of the guys she worked with, and that made JLaw frown harder than the time she released a massive pizza burp and there was no one around to hear it. Now the director of American Hustle and JLaw’s upcoming film Joy, David O. Russell, is chiming in with his thoughts. Because just like their dramatic on-set screaming matches, David O. Russell always has to get the last word.
File Under “Opposite Of Shocking”: David O. Russell Was A Dick To Amy Adams On The Set Of American Hustle
Is there an award for outstanding achievement in the field of subtle stank face excellence? Because Amy Adams should receive 10 of them. I mean, if that isn’t the face of “Hurry up and take the god damn picture already so I can boot scoot it away from this trick“, then I don’t know what is.
Thanks to this latest round of leaked Sony emails, we have another ‘David O. Russell is a ragey asshole’ story to add to the already pretty huge pile. The NY Daily News found an email sent to Sony’s Michael Lynton from his journalist brother-in-law, MSNBC’s Jonathan Alter that was sent in September of last year regarding David’s behavior on the set of American
Wigs Hustle, and guess what? He was acting like a total douche! I know, I’m just as shocked as you are. So shocked. Somebody get me a Costco-sized tub of smelling salts.
Why do I get the feeling that Lily Tomlin read that headline and started screaming “Don’t hold back, Katniss! Whoop that trick, word-style!”
According to TMZ, things got all Hunger Games between noted asshole/director David O. Russell and America’s Girlfriend/actress Jennifer Lawrence on the set of the movie Joy on Tuesday. A source on the set says they saw an argument start between David and Jennifer over a scene that progressed into a dramatic cuss-filled screaming match. Surprise surprise, David O. Russell was doing most of the screaming and swearing (I head the O in his name stands for “Oh f#@$% c*!$#“).
David O.Russell, the director of American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook, is joining Tom Cruise and Kanye in the Head Up Your Ass club after comparing Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games schedule to slavery to The New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l (via EOnline).
“I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they’re printing money. But she’s a very alive person.“
“I’ll tell you what it is about that girl—talk about 12 years of slavery, that’s what the franchise is,” the screenwriter continued. “And I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying that.” Russell, 55, also compared The Hunger Games to a “hamster wheel” and claimed Lawrence takes on more artistic roles as a “vacation” from her more commercial movies.
Jennifer hasn’t complained about her schedule, so I’m sure she’s super grateful to David for dragging her name into a PR shitshow. Sorry about that snort of derision, David. You’re so right! The struggle is REAL for Jennifer Lawrence! There’s nobody in Hollywood that she could have talked to about the downsides of signing on to film a book franchise if she was that worried about it! She couldn’t have asked Charlie Hunnam why he pulled his dick out of 50 Shades or gone around L.A. kicking refrigerator boxes until she found Robert Pattinson? And granted an eye roll, a greasy hair toss and a mumbled “fuckin’ sucks, man” coming from Kristen Stewart could apply to any number of things, but Jennifer could still make it work for her situation.
Jennifer has done 16 films in 5 years and when she burns out I’m sure it will be completely relatable and gif-able, just like every other fucking thing she does. Fingers crossed her dismount from the proverbial hamster wheel looks like this!
