By now you have likely learned about the huge Sony hack which shut them down, but resulted in each of their e-mails being leaked onto the web. Now, it is still rather early to choose a favourite interaction, because there is so much correspondence flying near.
I believe mine must be the exchange between Sony’s cochair Amy Pascal as well as a producer who has such a problem with Angelina Jolie that he is all-capsing about it in an (insanely hilarious) set of e-mails.
The high’s working on the as yet untitled Steve Jobs endeavor and Angie was irritated with them for attempting to hire director David Fincher when she needed him for Cleopatra away. And would not it be known by you, Scott reacted like a perfect gentleman:
“YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS.”
He also said he did not ‘need to waste time on’ figuring out the problem with Angelina, whom he labeled as a’ gifted spoiled brat’.
Oh JK, he was the worst. He also said he did not ‘want to waste time on’ figuring the issue out with Angelina, whom he labeled as a’ minimally talented spoiled brat’. OH DAMN GIRL. If there gonna be one woman in Hollywood whom I wouldn’t desire to be angry at me, it is Angelina Jolie. After all, not only she is one of the very most powerful people within the business, but she is also systematically building an army of kids with Brad Pitt that’ll outlive us all. You can’t mess around with someone who plays with a long game like that. But go ahead, Scott, I believe like you have more to say about it. What are your ideas on Cleopatra?
“I’m not remotely interested in presiding over a $180m ego bath that we both know will be the career-defining debacle for us both.”
Tell us how you actually feel, Scott! Oh wait, you are, like when you said you’d ‘no desire to be making a film with’ Angelina. Speak for yourself, buddy!
“She’s a camp event and a celebrity and that’s all and the last thing anybody needs is to make a giant bomb with her that any fool could see coming. We will end up being the laughing stock of our industry and we will deserve it, which is so clearly where this is headed that I cannot believe we are still wasting our time with it.”
