"He keeps talking throughout your recording," the actress said in a recent interview with the AV Club.
David O. Russell is known to be a pretty intense director, both when the cameras are rolling and when they aren't. On the set of "I Heart Huckabees," he ripped off Lily Tomlin, who knew about it, and while filming "American Hustle," Amy Adams told GQ that he made her cry "most days". While Julia Silveres, who supports the Silver Linings Playbook star, hadn't had such a serious experience, she did tell the AV Club about her time on set, Russell's “jarring” government style, and the fact that he “keeps talking "Open throughout your intake" to an irritating but disarming effect. (Via the playlist.)
"I don't really want to get to know David O. Russell as a director, but I've learned a lot about how he treats people on set, good and bad." I can't approve of that, but I learned a lot from him because he speaks constantly throughout your recording, ”said Stiles. "He talks to you while you are acting or trying to act. It's very irritating, but it knocked me out of my head. I didn't have time to censor myself or be really confident because he yells at you and you obey or have to listen. "
Stiles added, “As annoying as it is, I guess I haven't thought that much as an actress. It ripped me out of my head. "
Everyone has a story about David O. Russell, for better or for worse. At an AFI Fest Q&A after a 2016 revival of "Flirting with Disaster", Tomlin and Russell lovingly shared the stage and appeared to have buried the hatchet, despite the widespread footage in which he called her "c ** t “and throw a fit.
Russell's next-to-be-titled film has a starry cast including John David Washington, Margot Robbie, Michael B. Jordan and Christian Bale (who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Russell's "The Fighter"). Filming is scheduled to start in January. Russell's last film to be released was in 2015: "Joy" played his muse "American Hustle" and "Silver Linings Playbook", Jennifer Lawrence.
