The actress looked like she was in a reasonably good mood despite the fact that some scathing emails were published by Gawker in which she was called a “minimally talented spoiled brat.”
In the revealed email exchange between Sony Pictures co-chairperson Amy Pascal and movie producer Scott Rudin, about Angelina Jolie and the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, Jolie apparently wanted David Fincher to leave the project and direct her film Cleopatra instead.
Here are some of the highlights from the exchange.
“She is upset about us giving David Jobs. She wants to talk,” Pascal apparently wrote to Rudin.
“She’ll survive it,” Rudin allegedly replied. “I don’t want to waste my time on this.”
“YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS,” he reportedly added in another email.
Just to further add to his embarrassment, an email purportedly written by Rudin demolished the very idea of a Cleopatra movie, saying he had expressed “zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats”.
“I’ve told you exactly how I want to do this material. It’s the ONLY way I want to do this material. 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,” the email continued to read.
“I’m not destroying my career over a minimally talented spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off her plate for eighteen months so she could go direct a movie. I have no desire to be making a movie with her, or anybody, that she runs and that we don’t. 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.”
I’m guessing that in light of this surfaced exchange, the widely hated Scott Rudin will not be working with Brangelina any time soon.
