Angelina Jolie 'Didn't Care' About Amy Pascal's Hacked Emails

Angelina Jolie 'Didn't Care' About Amy Pascal's Hacked Emails

Amy Pascal is speaking out candidly for the first time about the Sony Hack and she is revealing Angelina Jolie‘s thoughts on the scandal.

If you don’t remember, the actress was called a “minimally talented spoiled brat” by Scott Rudin in an email sent to Amy.

Angie didn’t care,” Amy said. “Everybody understood because we all live in this weird thing called Hollywood. If we all actually were nice, it wouldn’t work.”

When asked about paying Jennifer Lawrence less money than her male co-stars in American Hustle, she said “I’ve paid [her] a lot more money since then, I promise you. Here’s the problem: I run a business. People want to work for less money, I pay them less money … Women shouldn’t work for less money. They should know what they’re worth. Women shouldn’t take less. ‘Stop, you don’t need the job that bad.’”

    Regardless of her gender, I don’t think jennifer lawrence should make as much as any of her veteran actor costars. I doubt people were watching that movie based on her acting.

  • Shenanigans

    Wasnt it Scott rudim who called Angie that?? Amy just seemed like a friend divided between two friends..

  • Camila C.S. Oliveira

    I thought the men Amy Pascal was exchanging emails called Angelina a “minimally talented spoiled brat”.

  • TeamBella76

    WRONG. I went and watched it for her ! Yes she’s not a veteran but they should take account of WHO is going to watch these movies. LIKE IT OR NOT PEOPLE GO TO MOVIES TO WATCH MISS JENNIFER and if you don’t believe me read the Fandango survey that were taken for Xmen Days of Future Past !

  • TeamBella76

    Good Jennifer deserves it ! She’s not a veteran but people like me go to the movies to watch her so pay her !

  • zoya

    Jennifer was the best part of the whole movie, the movie was just boring without her, everytime she wasnt on screen, i longed for her.She was just absolutely hilarious in that part even if i thought she was miscast. I think david o russell wanted publicity for the movie, thats why he wanted jennifer in the movie, which she loved to be a part of, even if she had to forgo the only break of 15 days she had in a 2 years time. Jennifer was nominated for an oscar for the movie , like all her costars.

  • i love people

    I wouldnt have been that interested in that movie , if jennifer was not in that movie. period . I absolutely Love everyone in the cast , but to make me wait for the movie or watch it in the first week of its release , it has got to have jennifer lawrence in the movie or christopher nolan as the director of the movie.as simple as that.

  • i love people

    i remember amy adams say in an interview , that until jennifer was on the set, which was 20 days into the shoot , the set was ‘fcuking boring’ and then jen came and there was just ‘lightning’ on the set….those were her exact words… she also said jen is a phenom in acting , she does a brilliant job bringing to life these complex characters in an emotionally honest yet in a palatable way, that while working opposite to jennifer , she just knew there was just something just there in jennifer..

  • Kim

    Angie doesn’t give a F about what Scott Rudin says.Everyone in Hollywood knows Scott is an as#hole.He has been making nasty comments for years about many people in Hollywood.Like most people in Hollywood Angie didn’t take it personal.

  • rachel williams

    Daniel Radcliffe called Jennifer lawrence , the nicest person he has met in hollywood and the biggest movie star in the world. So I think Jennifer should get more money in any movie than her costars if her role is more significant , but in American Hustle ,since her role is very short , it is fine if she gets the same pay or even lesser pay than her costars. I heard Francis lawrence and nina jacobson say that jen doesnt care too much about money or fame… she just wants to do good movies and liked by people.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Deluded woman. Angelina is a smart woman, of course she’s not going to go Kanye on her. She may forgive but not forget.

  • carrie

    1/ it’s Steve Rudin who named Jolie as minimally talented spoiled brat .
    2/ Lawrence had a supporting character character in the movie.They even cut Renner’s character in the editing room .
    3/ Lawrence was a huge miscat
    4/ the problem never was that Lawrence is paid less than Bale or Cooper but that Renner was paid more than Amy Adams who was the lead actress

  • carrie

    David O Russel harassed Adams so much and Bale had to intervene and defend Adams .

  • David T

    Jared, please post a correction. Amy Pascal was the recipient of the email, but it was Scott Rudin who made the offensive remark.

  • CLINIQUA

    I don’t even see how a Brangelina oriented site gets it wrong and writes that It was Amy who slurred Angelina.

    It reminds me of a lot of the stories written to drum up angst between Angelina and Amy when they met (after the Sony hacking) and photos were taken at the Hollywood women’s dinner (falsehoods such as, ‘Angie’s staring daggers,’ ‘Angie looks like she was cold to Amy,’ blah blah – got written by the usual hack suspects) – which of course were not true, as it was Scott Rudin, the well-known human pile of shite that went meangirl on Angie…and she really had no reason to go ham on Amy Pascal

    Yup…this looks like a deliberate stunt from one of the Huvane/Aniston staff writers that JustJared’s was forced to hire to write the Maniston puff pieces, who wrote this.

    If it stays up, and doesn’t get corrected, Huvaniston is behind it.

  • CLINIQUA

    Hah..interesting shade from Pascal on J-law, essentially calling her and her people stupid. The implication is that, that was early days in the Jlaw career since then she and her camp have smartened up and she’s been paid accordingly.

  • zoya

    is it true? omg, i cant believe he is doing it again. DoR is a good director but i think he pushes his actors too far. But i think these directors who are brilliant have reputation for bad behaviour, i ve heard things about j cameroon , and many other directors. anyone can correct me if i’m wrong or harsh.

  • zoya

    i thought she was miscast too , but my family who couldnt recognize it was jennifer, thought she was the best part of the film. even c bale thought she would be too old for the role but later came out and said she did a great job with the character.

  • Mary Devlin Millar

    It wasn’t shade…just a matter of fact answer, that’s all. The whole point of the interview is that Pascal is now being a lot more direct and honest than she had been.

    The more important news is as you mentioned, that Jennifer Lawrence is now being paid what she deserves to be paid…not less.

  • Mary Devlin Millar

    Agreed. Huvane is also Paltrow’s PR agent. It’s worth noting.

  • Missy

    Hollyweird, correctly.

  • Barry

    No, but she acted like any average Hollywood professional when she learnt the news…
    She called immediately her agent to make all her own personnal electronic conversations disappear.

  • busted

    I just saw a bit of Amy being interviewed by Tina Brown.. The Today Showed aired a tiny part of it.. Amy is a MESS.. Listening to her she sounds like a lush and is extremely unprofessional. I think it is important to support women in High positions but after hearing her talk I’m amazed she kept her job for as long as she did.

    Regarding Angie.. I guess her detractors so need her to be so hurt by what this man said. People have been talking shit about Angie for years. Hasn’t stopped her from achieving anything that she wants. So hate away..

    she continues to S L A Y the world.

    >>>>>>>>>

    It’s fine NOT to care about money or fame and wanting to do good movies and being liked by people.

    But ladies, remember, you can be all of the above AND STILL BE PAID YOUR TRUE WORTH! Because money is not just about money, it’s about how you value yourself AND not selling yourself SHORT.

    The money men won’t like you less if you demand your true worth AND they will respect you more.

  • Go Figure!

    Which thread are we on?

  • Sassypants

    I’m not surprised someone called “TeamBella” went to see it for Jennifer Lawrence. It was my mistake generalizing and saying “people”, when a healthy portion of internet posters are teens and early twenties. I should have said “most adults”. I don’t like or dislike what people do, but like in the real world and in many regular professions, the people with the most experience and proven skills should get paid the most in my opinion. Guess what, SHE GOT PAID LESS!

  • Passing Through

    Dawne • 24 minutes ago

    Just saw a bit on CNN with Amy’s interview………..she is letting it all hang out………basically saying women should walk away if they aren’t being paid enough……….

    ++++++++++++++++++

    So says a woman making $10 million a year and who just scored a production deal that’ll pay her $30-40MIL over 4 years. STFU, Amy Pascal. She obviously has a problem with putting her foot in her mouth. Presumably she means actresses who can command more money should walk away and not regular woman who sometimes have to take any job just to feed their kids.

  • Passing Through

    Kim Shenanigans • 7 hours ago

    Angie doesn’t give a F about what Scott Rudin says.Everyone in Hollywood knows Scott is an as#hole.He has been making nasty comments for years about many people in Hollywood.Like most people in Hollywood Angie didn’t take it personal.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    Pascal said she told Angie about the email, so the question is – did she tell her when it happened or when Sony got hacked and she knew the shite was going to hit the fan? I interpreted Pascal’s statement as being she told Angie about it when it happened – and Angie didn’t care. If that’s the case – it means Angie carried on working with Rudin even though she knew he was talking shite about her. Now that would truly be NOT giving a shite.

  • well

    Eh- Amy seems less than a credible source for what Angie says or wants, but let her spew. Out of Amy, Scott, Leo, George & Angie, Angie is the one who came off as the most professional, polite & kind- nobody can change the facts. I think I’ll go check out the old thread re: LES center.

  • Tweet Angie

    She tolf her when Sony got hacked. The big question is. Does Rudin still has anything to do with Cleo?

  • Saffron

    I’m glad Amy, at least, came out and said Angie didn’t GAFF. We knew it but it’s nice that it’s out there for others.

  • Lylian

    I think that Angelina won’t work with SR if he were still attached to Cleo. I think she won’t work with SR because he’s 2 faced and NOT to be trusted. That’s quite different to refusing to work with SR because she’s angry with him.

  • toastie postie

    I agree. Very good point.

  • toastie postie

    Doesn’t look like that. But I don’t know how that happened. In the article about Amy’s new role, Cleo was mentioned as one of projects. But I thought the jerk had it. Maybe he was paid to give it up, since his attitude and ideas about it might not get anyone to want to work with him on it.

  • toastie postie

    Yeah, like new actresses(and some established ones) can afford to walk away. They have to eat too. What threw me was her saying if people want to work for less, I pay them less. What? What idiot wants to work for less? They often know they won’t get the part, if they ask for the pay they deserve.

    I remember seeing a hacked email with Amy giving orders to get rid of Rudin but to keep Cleo and the Dragon Tattoo series. Hopefully, that’s exactly what happened.

  • toastie postie

    Wanting to be liked by people? Sounds like Sally Fields. I love Sally Fields, JA will never be as good as Sally Fields. I may be totally wrong about this and off base, but Sally Fields doesn’t seem to have minded taking parts that are not an ingénue. She great in all the different roles she taken, some likable and some mean(and not for laughs, like that Bosses movie of JA). Sorry for going on. Love Sally Fields even her movies with Burt. The Flying Nun series wasn’t a favorite, only because it reminded me of the days I was taught by nuns(ones that wore the winged tops) in school

  • toastie postie

    That would be nice. Thanks.

  • Tweet Angie

    Hope so. I really dont deslike Amy Pascal. She was always correct with Angie and always showed public that she was a big fan of Angie. She offered Salt to Angie, The Tourist also has her fingers and Cleo. I dont want to hate Rudin you know because those were private e-mails. There is something obscene when we are being harsh with another person based on hacked e-mails.

  • CLX

    But I found her argument utter garbage. Women are underpaid because they are constantly told they are not worth as much when they ask. Employers do think they are worth less and think it is entirely fair that they get paid less. It’s not that women don’t ask. It’s when they do, they are told they are not worth it, and even lied to (I certainly was). This is not to say that I think Jennifer should have been any more than she was in that instance. I just think Amy is throwing up the same old bs excuses about why women get paid less, an excuse that of course blames women once more and never the idiots making the decisions.

  • Reham

    I agree with you, and i don’t dislike Rudin much either. People say really mean things when they’re upset, and talking in private to a friend… especially someone as hot tempered as Rudin. That guy’s moodiness and rudeness is legendary, and it seems like it comes out of a place of weakness in him.

    Afternoon folks.

    First of all, where’s my check Jared?

    Secondly, Just how much do you think it pisses the hags off that Amy P basically went running to The AJP to apologize when the sh!te hit the fan.

    And letting the world know that it all just rolled off her back cause she’s got it like that.

    And Amy still wants to make Cleo with the one and only Dame Commander.

  • Saffron
  • Mary Devlin Millar

    Actually, I do agree with you regarding Pascals argument about the gender pay gap. It really makes no sense.

    As for Jennifer Lawrence, I believe that she should have been paid more for AH (it sounds as though she eventually was). I was commenting on the belief that Pascal wasn’t throwing shade at Lawrence but was explaining (albeit poorly) why Lawrence was paid what she was paid originally. Really, I think with Pascal, the more she tries to explain this whole thing, the worse she appears.

  • hakuna.mataaaata

    what an idiot women

  • hakuna.mataaaata

    oh please ,i agree with you but many people saw this movie for lawrence , thz movie got the oscar buzz because of lawrence so yes she deserves at least to have the same pay as Renner who wasn’t also great in that movie

  • Gold Dust Woman

    The Jen being talked about is Jennifer Lawrence. Aniston doesn’t figure in discussions about high level Hollywood movies.

    Amy Pascal Talks Getting ‘Fired,’ Sony Hack and Angelina Jolie Emails in Candid Interview
    Dave McNaryFilm Reporter @Variety_DMcNary

    Six days after stepping down as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Amy Pascal broke her silence on Wednesday at the Women in the World conference in San Francisco during a candid interview with journalist Tina Brown.
    “All the women here are doing incredible things in this world. All I did was get fired,” she said, according to the Recode site.
    Among the topics discussed were the hacked email exchanges between herself and producer Scott Rudin, the “The Interview’s” bad reviews, and the pervasive gender gap in Hollywood.
    Pascal recounted the moment in November when she realized that her emails at Sony would be exposed.
    “I ran this company and I had to worry about everybody who was really scared…People were really scared…But nagging in the back of my mind, I kept calling (the IT department) and being like, ‘They don’t have our emails, tell me they don’t have our emails,’” she said. “But then they did. That was a bad moment. And you know what you write in emails.”
    Right off the bat, Brown asked Pascal about the racial emails about President Obama, causing the 56 year-old exec shook her head.
    “It was horrible. That was horrible,” Pascal said. “As a woman, what I did was control how everybody felt about themselves and about me…and there was this horrible moment when I realized there was absolutely nothing I could do about whether I’d hurt people, whether I’d betrayed people.”

    Pascal also said, “There is nothing you can do. You can’t say anything. You can’t explain anything. It’s just there.”
    As for her exchanges with Rudin on Jolie, whom he called a “minimally talented spoiled brat,” she said:”The first person I talked to was Angie after that email,”

    “Angie didn’t care.”
    “Everybody understood because we all live in this weird thing called Hollywood,” she said. “If we were all actually were nice, it wouldn’t work.”
    When asked about underpaying Jennifer Lawrence in “American Hustle,” Pascal scoffed.
    “I’ve paid (Jennifer Lawrence) a lot more money since then, I promise you … Here’s the problem: I run a business. People want to work for less money, I pay them less money…Women shouldn’t be so grateful. Know what you’re worth. Walk away.”
    Brown later said that “The Interview” was a pretty bad movie, to which Pascal replied, “You don’t get to choose what you stand up for.”
    This past week, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced a partnership to make new Spider-Man movies with Marvel Studios, which Pascal will produce as part of her new studio deal with Sony.
    “The worst thing you can do is be on the sideline,” she said.
    The studio also recently announced an all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot with Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy.
    “It’s about time we have a female action series,” Pascal declared.
    As for the most important thing she learned from the hacked emails? “Say exactly what you think directly to people all the time,” she said. “In the moment, the first time.”
    When Brown countered that Hollywood stars were sensitive than most people, Pascal snickered.
    “They’re bottomless pits of need. You’ve never seen anything like it,” she said. Then added sarcastically: “They are so great. They’re this magical thing that no one else can be. They’re filled with the need to be loved … but that’s because they’re magical.”
    The executive also had harsh words for the press when asked if she was surprised about the reaction to her emails.
    “I’m not supposed to say anything about that,” she said. “But I will say that I was. People found reasons that going through my trash and printing it was an ok thing to do. They found a way to justify that. And they have to live with that.”

    Hacked Hollywood Mogul Amy Pascal on Sony Attack: “All I Did Was Get Fired”

    By Nellie Bowles

    Amy Pascal broke her silence today at the Women in the World conference at the St. Regis Hotel in downtown San Francisco, in an onstage interview with journalist Tina Brown.
    “All the women here are doing incredible things in this world. All I did was get fired,” said the departing Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairperson, settling in for a free-flowing conversation with Brown. “Everyone knows everything about me. What am I doing here?”
    Brown answered that for her.
    “None of us can imagine …” Brown said.
    “No, you cannot,” Pascal said.
    Pascal’s digital record came into the spotlight when North Korea hacked Sony in retaliation for producing “The Interview,” a slapstick comedy about journalists sent to assassinate that country’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un. The hackers exposed thousands of internal emails, including Pascal’s ALL-CAPS-laced missives about celebrities and a racially charged jokeabout President Obama. This week, she announced she’ll be stepping down to join the “Spiderman” production team in May (and receive close to a $40 million production/parachute package over the next four years).
    During cocktails before she took the stage, Brown said Pascal decided to speak publicly in San Francisco for the first time because “the timing was good. And in her home town, it’s a little too hot right now.”
    After a dramatic video intro that featured footage of an explosion to indicate the hacking, Brown asked Pascal to recount the moment when she first realized that her emails would be exposed.
    “I ran this company and I had to worry about everybody who was really scared. … People were really scared. … But nagging in the back of my mind, I kept calling [IT] and being like, ‘They don’t have our emails, tell me they don’t have our emails,’” she said. “But then they did. That was a bad moment. And you know what you write in emails.”
    We know exactly what she writes in her emails.
    Pascal — who dressed casually in clog heels and a leopard print wrap tied around her waist — said her off-the-cuff emails with Sony producer Scott Rudin were the result of a 30-year-relationship, an “ongoing fight” and playful “role-playing” since the day they met.
    Brown brought up the Obama emails right away: “They accused you of being a racist,” she said.
    “It was horrible. That was horrible,” Pascal said, tossing her hair and then brushing it out of her face, looking almost teary-eyed for a moment.
    “As a woman, what I did was control how everybody felt about themselves and about me … and there was this horrible moment when I realized there was absolutely nothing I could do about whether I’d hurt people, whether I’d betrayed people,” she said. “I couldn’t protect anyone. … It was horrible because that’s how I did my job.”
    She paused and then said something surprising.
    “It was also strangely freeing,” she said, looking at Brown. “Because all of a sudden, that was just what it was.”
    Pascal continued: “There is nothing you can do. You can’t say anything. You can’t explain anything. It’s just there.”
    Brown mentioned that “The Interview” was actually a pretty bad movie (no “Citizen Kane,” she said). Pascal had a quick retort: “You don’t get to choose what you stand up for.”
    Relationships had been less damaged than people outside Hollywood may think because it is a unique kind of town, Pascal said.
    “Everybody understood because we all live in this weird thing called Hollywood,” she said. “If we all actually were nice, it wouldn’t work.”
    For example, even though Rudin called Angelina Jolie a “minimally talented spoiled brat,” Pascal said: “Angie didn’t care.”
    Was she surprised that the press were so harsh?
    “I’m not supposed to say anything about that,” she said, looking out at the audience coyly. “But I will say that I was. People found reasons that going through my trash and printing it was an okay thing to do. They found a way to justify that. And they have to live with that.”
    Among the leaks was detailed payment information that showed women were paid less than men: “I’ve paid [Jennifer Lawrence] a lot more money since then, I promise you. … Here’s the problem: I run a business. People want to work for less money, I pay them less money. … Women shouldn’t work for less money. They should know what they’re worth. Women shouldn’t take less. ‘Stop, you don’t need the job that bad.’”
    She said she’s learned a lot from the hack about how to relate to people.
    “You should always say exactly what you think directly to people all the time,” she said. “In the moment, the first time.”
    Brown said this might be hard to do given how vulnerable Hollywood stars can be.
    Pascal unleashed a little of the energy found in those emails.
    “They’re bottomless pits of need. You’ve never seen anything like it,” she said, adding sarcastically: “They are so great. They’re this magical thing that no one else can be. They’re filled with the need to be loved … but that’s because they’re magical.”

    Amy Pascal Speaks Out About Getting “Fired” From Sony

    by Ryan Gajewski

    2/11/2015 11:15pm PST

    Amy Pascal is opening up about her departure from her Sony post.
    Pascal, who is stepping down as Sony’s co-chairman following the devastating hack on the studio, spoke to journalist Tina Brown at the Women in the World conference Wednesday in San Francisco, where she said she wasn’t sure she belonged at the event.
    “All the women here are doing incredible things in this world — all I did was get fired,” Pascal said, according to Recode. It should be noted that official statements about her departure from the Sony gig had implied a mutual parting of ways, rather than a firing.
    “Everyone knows everything about me,” Pascal continued. “What am I doing here?” Brown replied by saying, “None of us can imagine …” and Pascal cut her off with, “No, you cannot.”
    Brown asked Pascal how she felt when she first realized her emails would be made public. “I ran this company, and I had to worry about everybody who was really scared … People were really scared … But nagging in the back of my mind, I kept calling [IT] and being like, ‘They don’t have our emails, tell me they don’t have our emails,’ ” she said. “But then they did. That was a bad moment. And you know what you write in emails.”
    When asked about being called a racist for her messages about Barack Obama, Pascal said: “It was horrible. That was horrible.” Pascal and Scott Rudin had joked in an email chain about Obama’s supposed taste in movies.

    Some of Pascal’s email threads were scrutinized for harsh words about her showbiz colleagues, particularly messages between Pascal and Rudin, but according to Pascal, that’s the way the industry operates. “Everybody understood because we all live in this weird thing called Hollywood,” she said. “If we all actually were nice, it wouldn’t work.” Pascal said thatAngelina Jolie “didn’t care” that Rudin referred to her in a leaked email as a “minimally talented spoiled brat.”
    However, Pascal criticized the press for reporting on the contents of her leaked messages. “People found reasons that going through my trash and printing it was an OK thing to do,” said Pascal, who will work as a producer on several of Sony’s biggest projects. “They found a way to justify that. And they have to live with that.”

    Brown asked about the revelation from leaked Sony documents that female stars such as Jennifer Lawrence earned less from the studio than their male counterparts. “I’ve paid [Jennifer Lawrence] a lot more money since then, I promise you,” said Pascal. “Here’s the problem: I run a business. People want to work for less money, I pay them less money … Women shouldn’t work for less money. They should know what they’re worth. Women shouldn’t take less. ‘Stop, you don’t need the job that bad.’ ”
    As for what she has learned from the experience, Pascal said: “You should always say exactly what you think directly to people all the time.” She added that this is hard to do with celebrities, as they are “bottomless pits of need.”
