Oscar-winning producer Scott Rudin, dubbed “The Most Feared Man in Town” for his four- decade long history of traumatizing staffers and threatening careers, is under fire as employees are finally speaking out about his abusive behavior.  

The producer of Hollywood hits “No Country for Old Men” and “The First Wives Club,” was called an “absolute monster” by former employees in a new report.   

Former executive coordinator Caroline Rugo claims Rudin threw a glass bowl at an employee, which caused them to be taken from the office by ambulance due to a panic attack. Another time he threw a laptop at a window, then raged out on a napkin dispenser in the communal kitchen.  

Rudin allegedly threw a baked potato at an assistant’s head when an indie distributor showed up at the office unannounced, then fired the man shortly after when he refused to drop out of college to join the staff full-time.  

“Every day was exhausting and horrific,” said former executive assistant Ryan Nelson. “Not even the way he abused me, but watching the way he abused the people around me who started to become my very close friends. You’re spending 14 hours a day with the same people, enduring the same abuse. It became this collective bond with these people.”

In response to the claims of his staffers, Hollywood producers and stars are speaking out against Rudin.  Annapurna Pictures founder Megan Ellison, who worked with Rudin on 2010’s “True Grit,” accused him of racism and sexism on Twitter.

“This piece barely scratches the surface of Scott Rudin’s abusive, racist, and sexist behavior,” Ellison said of the expose. “Similarly to Harvey, too many are afraid to speak out. I support and applaud those who did. There’s good reason to be afraid because he’s vindictive and has no qualms about lying.”

 “Tom Cruise to Trey Parker. They all know,” Echoed actress Rose McGowan. “Super producer Scott Rudin must be stopped. Enough. What is wrong with you Hollywood? You are putting your values in our minds. Your value system is sick. Stop poisoning us. End power abuse now.”
