In another personal email exposed by the Sony hack, “American Hustle” director David O. Russell allegedly abused Amy Adams on the set of the movie and frightened the rest of the cast, Radar Online reported Wednesday. The Oscar-nominated director was allegedly a tyrant who displayed “lunatic behavior” in an email sent to Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton by Jonathan Alter.

“He treated the crew like s--t, demanded his own bathroom at all times and frightened people, as he famously had on Three Kings.” Atler, a journalist and friend of Lynton, alleged. “He grabbed one guy by the collar, cursed out people repeatedly in front of others and so abusedAmy Adams that Christian Bale got in his face and told him to stop acting like an asshole.”  

“I know [Russell is] brilliant, but we have someone on our show who worked closely with him on American Hustle,” Alter said. “And not only are the stories about him reforming himself total bulls--t, but the new stories of his abuse and lunatic behavior are extreme even by Hollywood standards.” Because of his reported behavior, “a lot of people won’t work with him again,” Atler wrote.

Lynton’s only reported response, as stated by Radar Online, was a question: “Not sure what you are asking here?”

The leaked email is just another one in a series of hacked emails after “The Interview,” a film about killing Kim Jong Un, was set to be released in theaters nationwide. After they denied involvement initially, the DPRK took credit for the hacks on Sony Entertainment Pictures. The hackers threatened violence against anyone who went to the theater to see the movie, which led Sony to ultimately cancel the film’s premiere on Christmas Day. President Barack Obama said it was OK for Americans to attend theaters without fear. 

"Well, the cyber-attack is very serious. We're investigating, we're taking it seriously," the president told ABC News via CNN. "We'll be vigilant, if we see something that we think is serious and credible, then we'll alert the public. But for now, my recommendation would be that people go to the movies."
