I always thought Lily Tomlin had a tough-as-nails side. This clip caught on tape during the filming of I Heart Huckabees shows a serious rumble between Lily and director David O. Russell. Man, she can cuss!

[ED NOTE] The video has been yanked. The Defamer had the original video and has been updating it when a new one appears to take the old one's place. I've posted a clip about what happened after the jump - let's just say I've never heard "F-ck" used so many times in such a short time. I'm impressed.

But the drama is not over. The car scene takes several more hours to shoot, and as the sun fades, the accumulated tension erupts. Ms. Tomlin begins shouting at Mr. Russell: she is unhappy with the way she looks. She wants to try the scene a different way. She taunts him with a few expletives and curses at the other actors too. Their patience worn, the other actors laugh at her outburst.

Later, unfolding himself from the back seat of the Chevrolet, Mark Wahlberg jokes that his next project will be a nice, easy action film.
