Alfred Hitchcock - Tortured Tippi Hendren by having a stage crew throw live birds at her during the filming of The Birds. He became infatuated with her and began paying people to stalk her. He sexually propositioned her and when she turned down his advances he ruined her career by keeping her under contract until demand for her died down. [x]
JD Salinger - Joyce Maynard, who dated a 35 year old Salinger when she was 18, and Salinger’s daughter, Margaret, both wrote about Salinger’s predatory and controlling relationships with women. Guess who was vilified after these writings were made public? [x]
Pablo Picasso - ‘Women are machines for suffering” “For me there are only two kinds of women, goddesses and doormats”. Of the seven most important women in Picasso’s life, two killed themselves and two went mad. [x]
Stanley Kubrick - Intentionally created a hostile environment to get a better performance out of Shelley Duvall during the filming of The Shining. He constantly berated her and brought her to tears. Working with Kubrick caused her so much stress she became physically ill and her hair started falling out. [x]
