Award-winning producer Scott Rudin has been accused of abusive behavior in a new exposé by The Hollywood Reporter. Former employees recall Rudin allegedly once became so angry at an assistant who wasn't able to get him a seat on a sold-out flight that he "smashed an Apple computer monitor" on his hand; the assistant went to the emergency room. Said former assistant Andrew Coles: "It was a new level of unhinged — a level of lack of control that I had never seen before in a workplace." Former employees say he threw everything from "a glass bowl" to a "big potato" to a stapler at colleagues out of anger. A former executive coordinator said, "Everyone just knows he's an absolute monster." Rudin, who has produced films like No Country for Old Men and The Social Network, didn't comment.
