Mega-producer Scott Rudin, one of the few people to have achieved EGOT status (he has an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony), is the subject of a blistering expose in The Hollywood Reporter. The publication chronicles his alleged abuse of staffers, who spoke under conditions of anonymity, said emotional abuse was the norm, but physical abuse happened too.
Rudin’s wins include best picture for the Coen brothers' 2007 drama No Country for Old Men.
Rudin is the latest Hollywood mega-star whose bad behavior is being reported on. Harvey Weinstein was the first in 2017, and his widespread and legendary abuse helped spawn the #MeToo movement and landed him behind bars. Since then, Sharon Osbourne, Ellen DeGeneres, Simon Cowell and others have come under fire, with varying consequences.
