LATEST: I Heart Huckabees director David O Russell's feud with NEW YORK TIMES Hollywood reporter SHARON WAXMAN has put him off the media for life.

The pair have been arguing since Waxman wrote a scathing magazine profile of Russell on the set I Heart Huckabees, falsely claiming the material was for her book REBELS ON THE BACKLOT: SIX MAVERICK DIRECTORS AND HOW THEY CONQUERED THE STUDIO SYSTEM.

Russell claims it has been a terrible experience, and vows, "I won't be hanging out with any journalists anymore."
