Rita Wilson Reveals the Awful Way Scott Rudin Allegedly Treated Her When They Worked Together

Rita Wilson is opening up about what allegedly happened when she worked with disgraced Scott Rudin on the 2015 Broadway play Fish in the Dark.

The 64-year-old actress learned that she was diagnosed with breast cancer while performing in the play and Rudin‘s response to the news was awful.

“When she told Mr. Rudin the news, she said, he complained that she would need time off during Tony voting season and asked to see her medical records, while Anna Shapiro, the director, grew upset about having to find a replacement,” The New York Times reported.

The report added, “A few days later, just before the curtains rose, Ms. Wilson received a call from her agent, saying her surgeon needed to call the insurance adjuster immediately, per Mr. Rudin’s demands. The memory still pains her.”

Rita told the NYT, “I felt like he was trying to find a way to fire me legally. He is the kind of person who makes someone feel worthless, unvaluable and replaceable.”

Rudin‘s rep told the paper that the producer’s “recollection was that Ms. Wilson had wanted to open the show and then leave, but that he and the director had not wanted her to delay treatment.”

Hugh Jackman just released a statement about the Rudin allegations and his future with The Music Man, a musical that was going to be produced by him.
