5. Octavia Spencer bullied by producer
Octavia Spencer has no problem reading people on the set. While getting glammed up for Elle magazine’s 2012 Women In Hollywood issue, the Oscar-winning actress revealed that she was once publicly bullied by a movie executive.
“Early on I had to stand up to a producer–I won’t say who, but he is famous, famous. He dressed me down in a crowded office," Octavia shared. "I told him right there in front of a hundred people, ‘You don’t know me well enough to use that tone.’"
Octavia didn’t keep up her brave face for too long, though, adding, "Then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby. But he never addressed me that way again. And he is known as a yeller.”
