"Everyone Just Knows He's an Absolute Monster": Scott Rudin's Ex-Staffers Speak Out on Abusive Behavior

Even as other Hollywood bullies are being sidelined, the uber-producer behind 'The Social Network' and Broadway’s 'To  Kill a Mockingbird' has been given a pass for his volcanic temper. Now, former employees open up about a boss who left many traumatized: "It was a new level of unhinged."

People don’t understand the aggressive, dominant force needed in the entertainment BUSINESS to produce a multi million $ movie, be profitable and all the risk involved. Successful executives and artist will failure miserably being Mr Nice Guy.

Is it progress for us that the article doesn't mention that he's gay? It wasn't long ago that the headline would have read "Gay Hollywood Hotshot Beats Underlings" or something along those lines. Yay us?

I was in an elevator with him and a director of a play he was producing. Knowing his reputation, I was terrified.

I would have kicked the crap out of him if he tried anything. I’m sure I’m scarier than he could ever dream of being.

I used to work at a video store in Hollywood, and people from his production company came in and were absolutely horrible. Obviously, they learned it from the master. I met someone not from that team who said working for him would be worse than working for Leona Helmsley. I noticed that there were constant changeovers in the staff that would come in to pick up videos, and they often seemed either very nervous or purposely aggressive. The ones that lasted more than a few months were absolutely wretched.

I have tickets for "The Music Man", and while I could cancel based on principal, that this is a show I have to see regardless of who's producing it. I saw "Finding Neverland", produced by Harvey Weinstein, twice, and fortunately didn't have to pay the same ticket price that "The Music Man" tickets were. Just because someone who is dispicable is behind an expensive production doesn't me feel that I have to avoid it. I saw Rudin's revival of "Dolly" three times, and each time I felt a huge sense of joy. I'm sure my next visit to River City will be the same.
