מה אנחנו יודעים על Scott Rudin
Scott Rudin (born July 14, 1958) is an American film, television, and theater producer.
His films include the Academy Award-winning Best Picture No Country for Old Men, as well as Lady Bird, Fences, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network, School of Rock, Zoolander, The Truman Show, The First Wives Club, Clueless, The Addams Family, and eight Wes Anderson films. On Broadway, he has won seventeen Tony Awards for shows such as The Book of Mormon, Hello, Dolly!, The Humans, A View from the Bridge, Fences, and Passion.
Rudin is widely considered to be one of the worst and most abusive bosses by talent and employees in the entertainment industry. Despite this, “for some four decades, Rudin's abusive behavior has been chronicled — even celebrated — by the press“, according to an excoriating account by entertainment reporter and National Public Radio (NPR) show host Tatiana Siegel. In a revealing article she details shocking violence that were a hallmark of Rudin's behavior as one of the industry's most decorated producers. In one incident, “the Oscar-winning producer was enraged that one of his assistants failed to get him a seat on a sold-out flight. In a fit of fury, he allegedly smashed an Apple computer monitor on the assistant's hand. The screen shattered, leaving the young man bleeding and in need of immediate medical attention. One person in the office at the time described the incident as sounding like a car crash: a cacophonous collision of metal, glass and limb. The wounded assistant headed to the emergency room. In another characteristic incident, those present described how Rudin threw a laptop at the window in the conference room and then went into the kitchen. Employees could hear him beating on the napkin dispenser."Another time “he threw a glass bowl at [a colleague]...It hit the wall and smashed everywhere. The HR person left in an ambulance due to a panic attack. That was the environment created,” Siegel's sources shared.
Multiple people corroborated the incident involving the HR staffer, who never returned, as well as the laptop and napkin-dispenser episode, which took place in early March 2019 during a meeting with a publicist from SpotCo, a major Broadway ad agency. In 2021, The Hollywood Reporter published an article accusing Rudin of abusing his employees.
In response to public outrage and pressure sparked by the detailing of “acts of intimidation” and humiliation against his employees going back decades, . along with actors personally speaking out about their own experiences, on April 17, 2021 producer Scott Rudin told The Washington Post that he will “step back” from his Broadway ventures and will be “taking steps that I should have taken years ago to address this behavior.”. In a three-paragraph statement emailed to the Post he wrote, “Much has been written about my history of troubling interactions with colleagues, and I am profoundly sorry for the pain my behavior caused to individuals, directly and indirectly.” Marks, Peter (April 17, 2021).
