The thought of a behind the scenes video from the set of a David O. Russell film strikes fear into our hearts. We know what can happen when candid footage from his films is found and released on the net (are you doing OK Lily Tomlin?). This time he might not press his luck because Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale are his lead actors and those two are known to have a short fuse. Surprisingly, this behind the scenes video highlight’s the main ladies of the cast going at it, Oscar nominees Amy Adams and Melissa Leo.

The Fighter is a boxing film that stars Bale as Dicky Eklund the half-brother of Wahlberg’s ”Irish” Mickey Ward. After kicking a bad drug habit, Eklund turns his life around and helps his brother train and win the world lightweight boxing championship. In the video, we see Mickey’s mom (Leo) and a pack of angry trailer park chicks flock to his porch, which spawns a confrontation between his wife Charlene (Adams) and the acid-washed jeans crew.

See Adams throw some ‘bows when the ladies get too close for comfort…

Who knew little Amy Lou had it in her? We don’t know the context of the scene but it’s probably somewhere in the middle of the film after a major event has happened. It must be serious because that much hair spray and blue eye shadow doesn’t just show up on your doorstep for nothing.
