Paul Reubans Gets Yelled At By David O.Russell

It was Pee-Wee Herman – or as normal people might call him – Paul Reubens’ turn to get yelled at by ill-tempered director David O. Russell.

On the first day of shooting the “abandoned” film Nailed, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel, Ruebens had the privilege of witnessing O.Russell and his bad temper first hand.

And by the way, my first day on the movie, he was screaming at me at the top of his lungs. I couldn’t believe it. I was sitting there, and he was cursing and screaming on the first take.

O.Russell has had his fair share of arguments because of his temper; he caused James Caan to quit one of his films and started a fight with George Clooney.

Ruebans continues after the jump.

I don’t know why he screamed at me. I did my first line in the first rehearsal and he started screaming like, ‘What do I have to do to get the performance I want out of you!’ And I was like, ‘Not that.

Aw poor little bugger! Check out photos of Pee-Wee on Extra with Mario Lopez.
