Don’t rub Mark Ruffalo the wrong way — either as Hulk or an investigative reporter in Boston.

Monsanto is a company Ruffalo abhors. But what are the odds of him running into its CEO after a TV appearance?

That’s what happened last week, when the chemical giant’s leader, Hugh Grant, was on “CBS This Morning.” The 48-year-old actor revealed details in his Tumblr blog.

While waiting to join real “Spotlight” reporter Mike Rezendes, he said, he was waiting in the green room watching Hugh Grant “worm his way through the strong questions he was getting from the CBS team.”

“I was beside myself watching this guy who is responsible for so much misery and sickness throughout the world slime his way through his interview,” he wrote. “I could not hold my tongue. He came through the Green Room door ready to do high-fives with his press agent and I simply told him this:

“You are wrong. You are engaged in monopolizing food. You are poisoning people. You are killing small farms. You are killing bees. What you are doing is dead wrong. “

A bead of sweat broke out on his head. ”Well, what I think we are doing is good.”

“I am sure you do.”

Ruffalo added:

Hugh, it’s not your messaging that makes you and your company horrible. It’s the horrible stuff you guys do that makes you and your company horrible. People don’t walk around making horrible stories up about good companies because they got nothing else better to do with their time. People like you and your company are horrible because — you are horrible. No matter how much jumping around you do on morning shows (where no one can really nail you down for the horrible stuff you do) you will still always be horrible, and people will always greet you the way I did, when you go around trying to cover up the fact that you are horrible.
