Octavia Spencer on Hollywood bullying: "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. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, 'You don't know me well enough to use that tone' ... And 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," she said in a recent interview with Elle.
