[Blind Gossip] An actress told her parents this disturbing story about a very famous director and a very famous producer.
There were several people riding in a limousine to a film event. The producer and the director were talking. An assistant interrupted them with an urgent business matter.
The producer was so irate about the interruption that he instructed the limo driver to pull over, and then kicked the assistant out of the car.
They were on a road in the middle of nowhere. In a snowstorm. Sub-zero temperatures.
One woman protested, “But he’ll freeze to death!”
The producer shrugged and responded, “I’m sure somebody will come along and pick him up,” and ordered the limo driver to keep going.
The director, who has worked with the producer many times, did nothing.
Perhaps the director just needed some time to process his own feelings about the situation? After all, that seems to be his excuse for pretending to be on another planet and not noticing or intervening when the producer would terrorize employees.

[Optional] Why do you think the director allowed this to happen?
