Berg was in the midst of discussing Battleship with presenter Jason Danino-Holt, when the director shifted subjects to Israel's looming conflict with Iran.
"What the f**k is going to happen in Israel?" Berg asked, adding: "You got [Prime Minister] Bibi [Netanyahu], and who's his Secretary of Defence, the Defence Minister? You have two men that are now dictating the policy towards Iran. It's a real mess, because you've gotta decide whether it's better to allow Iran to be armed, and whether a nuclear Iran is less of a threat than an attacked Iran."
Berg continued: "If you attack Iran now, they're gonna fight you back, right? There's gonna be blood. Israelis will die, right? No question. Would you rather take that now, or let them get a nuclear bomb. It's the most serious issue facing our planet today?
"More so than the movie Battleship, which I'm very excited to have directed, I love Rihanna, she's a great actress, did a wonderful job in the film, my dad was a navy historian."
Danino-Holt appeared confused by Berg's comments and grew even more flustered after telling the filmmaker he had not served a mandatory term in Israel's military.
"How'd you get out of that, are you a draft dodger? You gotta join the army, motherf**ker! How'd you get out of that?" Berg inquired.
The interviewer declined to reveal details of his lack of military service shortly before the chat came to a close.
Berg has not commented publicly on the fiery interview yet.
Battleship opens in US cinemas on Friday.
