What the Spin Doctor’s do not want you to know. Hollywood is creating actor’s with large Ego’s.
In one of Sony Pictures’ many hacked emails, producer Scott Rudin called Angelina Jolie, an Oscar winner and recipient of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, “a minimally talented spoiled brat”.
Rudin, the producer of such films as No Country for Old Men and The Social Network, sounded off in an exchange with Sony’s co-chairman Amy Pascal. He was irate that Jolie wanted director David Fincher to work on her version of Cleopatra, rather than direct a new Steve Jobs biopic.
“There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing given the insanity and rampaging ego of this woman and the cost of the movie is beyond me),” he wrote.
An attack which, through the relentless leaking of emails and other information, has laid bare a grubby world of vicious back-biting, breath-taking cynicism, overblown egos and — dare one say it of the city that wears its liberal values on its sleeve — even a nasty whiff of racism.
In a series of leaked emails between Sony movie executives, Angelina Jolie is derided as a spoiled brat and more.
The leaked emails are part of the recent Sony Pictures company cyber attack, resulting in masses of sensitive company information being distributed online.
In a series of emails between producer Scott Rudin and Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, they are bickering over Jolie’s wish to hire David Fincher to direct her version of Cleopatra, while Fincher was being urged to direct Jobs, the ill-fated Steve Jobs movie.
Here is Rudin, losing it:
‘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.’
In this one, he mentions Jolie’s ‘rampaging ego.’
