Angelina Jolie glares at Sony exec Amy Pascal days after THOSE hacked emails were published
The Sony hack leak reveled that Angelina Jolie had been branded a “minimally talented spoiled brat” during a vicious rant by one of Hollywood’s top producers.
So it was bound to be an awkward encounter when Ange ran into said producer again.
Luckily, there was a photographer there when it happened on Thursday night.
And if looks could kill…
The Hollywood actress can be seen glaring at Sony exec Amy Pascal, as the pair come head-to-head at an event.
Amy grabs Ange’s shoulders and looks at her apologetically, while Brad’s wife stares blankly at her former pal.
Wary onlookers stand in the background, looking on dubiously as the two meet for the first time since the emails were leaked earlier this month.
We can feel the tension from here.
Ange, who works as UN goodwill ambassador, became the latest victim of the Sony Pictures hackers after an exchange between the company’s co-chairperson Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin were published online.
The email claims Angelina, 39, was annoyed after learning David Fincher was set to direct the upcoming Jobs biopic as opposed to a re-make of Cleopatra in which she would play the lead.
As Rudin, 56, and Pascal discuss the situation in February, things quickly become fiery between the two.
Discussing the actress he appears to refer to her as “a minimally talented spoiled brat” before launching in to a rant slamming her in multiple e-mails.
“[Jolie] is upset about us giving david jobs she wants to talk,” wrote Pascal, 56, to Rudin in a leaked e-mail dated February 27.
According to the exchange, published by website Gawker, the producer says he has little time or interest in discussing Angelina’s concerns.
“She’ll survive it. I don’t want to waste my time on this,” he wrote.
However, later that day the situation become more intense when Rudin write: “You better shut Angie down before she makes it very hard for David to do Jobs.”
In response Pascal says: “Do not f**king threaten me.”
It is claimed Rudin, the first ever producer to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award, then continues to attack Angelina making several disparaging remarks.
The alleged email states: “There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing and rampaging spoiled ego of this woman and the cost of the movie is beyond me) and if you won’t tell her that you do not like the script – which, let me remind you, SHE DOESN’T EITHER – this will just spin even further out in Crazyland but let me tell you I have zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t.”
Appearing to calm down, he adds: “You know Eric and she have always wanted David and I have been the one saying no for two years.
“I have asked you to talk to her with me and you don’t want to deal with it.”
