Producer Scott Rudin's bullying has long been an open secret in Hollywood, and now it’s going public.  

Rudin’s former staffer Evan Davis says, “It’s war time. When you’re there, all you’re thinking about is how you survive it.” 

Davis, Max Hoffman and Eileen Klomhaus are part of the recent wave of former Rudin employees going on the record about their ex-boss’ behavior following a cover story in The Hollywood Reporter.  

They remember being yelled at, belittled, and gaslighted. And they call out the stars who have been silent, even as other outlets published more allegations of Rudin’s workplace abuse.
