You'd think working on a film with pros like Lily Tomlin, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, and Naomi Watts would make for a totally chill and fun environment.

But according to these outtakes that were uploaded onto YouTube this weekend, director David O. Russel seemed to be having a very difficult time.

And even though we realize that many things can go on during the years that it takes to put together a movie, under what circumstances is it okay to call Lily Tomlin a cunt on a set?

After the jump Tomlin curses out the director and Hoffman drops some f-bombs of his own. Now this is what we want in our DVD extras, Hollywood.
