File Under “Opposite Of Shocking”: David O. Russell Was A Dick To Amy Adams On The Set Of American Hustle

April 20, 2015 / Posted by:

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.

Jonathan writes:

“Are you guys doing anything else with him? I know he’s brilliant but we have someone on our show who worked closely with him on ‘American Hustle’ and not only are the stories about him reforming himself total bullshit but the new stories of his abuse and lunatic behavior are extreme even by Hollywood standards.”

“He grabbed one guy by the collar, cursed out people repeatedly in front of others and so abused Amy Adams that Christian Bale got in his face and told him to stop acting like an asshole.”

Christian Bale really IS Batman! He saw a villain terrorizing Amy Adams on set (supervillain name: The Direc-turd), and he heroically swooped in and saved her. Damn, Superman – get your shit together.

Michael Lynton responded to Jonathan’s email by confirming that the story was true (“DUH” just shouted everyone with even the most basic knowledge of David O. Russell) by saying:

“Next film for Fox. Trust me I know all about the other.”

That Fox film is of course Joy, and we already know that David O. Russell has wasted no time in bringing his patented brand of messy rage to that set. And fast forward to the future, when another story is released about David O. Russell acting like an infected butt cyst on the set of whichever movie he makes after Joy. And keep doing that until the day David O. Russell dies, at which point I wouldn’t be surprised to read a headline on that says “Doomed soul of David O. Russell calls Satan a ‘piece of shit’, makes the dude who runs the lake of fire cry.

And here’s David O. Russell’s least-biggest fan serving up some Pantene hair commercial realness while shopping in Hollywood last week.
