Angelina Jolie Breaks Her Silence on Those Sony Emails

Angelina Jolie Breaks Her Silence on Those Sony Emails

Angelina Jolie opens up about being referenced in the leaked Sony emails in this new interview.

The 40-year-old actress and director “didn’t read any of them,” but was immediately concerned about executive Amy Pascal.

“Someone told me. There are certain things that bother me and certain things that don’t,” Angie told NYT. “Personal attacks on me? I think I’m just so used to it. Honestly, my first instinct was that I was worried about Amy. I had someone call her and ask if she was O.K. Not because I’m a saint, but because I think we have to look at the bigger picture. She’s got kids. I knew it was going to unravel for her.”

Angelina also threw in her two cents about sexism in Hollywood, saying “Sexism is part of every industry and must be addressed. But I try not to focus on the negative but the positive side of what we can bring. I want to support other women because of the opportunities I’ve had — and I’ve had a lot of opportunities. What I try as a female director is to do the best job I can and in the meantime bring attention to as many other female directors and writers as I can.”

    Laura Hillenbrand told they world she calls Angelina a sister. Didn’t the hens claim that Angelina doesn’t have any friends?

    Yet here we have another accomplished woman who is friends with her. Then we have Marianne Pearl, Loung Ung and Jane Goodall who have been friends with Angelina for more than a decade..

  • VanityInsecurity

    What a woman! What an amazing human being! I don’t think I could have been so nice to Pascal. Ive been a fan of Angie since I saw her in Hackers years ago.. gotta say she impresses me more as herself than any role she could ever play.

  • Maya

    Angelina is always nice towards people even those who backstabs her.

    More than Amy its Rudin whom I dislike.

    That vile man needs to be thrown out of Hollywood. He has had some flops so fingers crossed that he will disappear from our radar…

  • toastie postie

    Yes. This will be the first time I have others to enjoy/talk/sigh/awwww/laugh/see/read a Angie movie with. It’s been hopping around here, the last few days, already.

    I’m worn out from so much reading and viewing such awesome, beautiful pictures. And of course there are many meltdowns – been busy with that too. Counting down the hours. Like I said before, I can’t believe how the time has finally come.

    Still don’t know if it will play in my area. Bummer.

  • neer

    Based on the hacked emails I read through the news, it’s AJP who acted more professional than the two (Rudin & Pascal). Her dealings with them was business-like. Formal and who really meant business. Honest. Expressed her thoughts & feelings well. Whereas, the two were like children. Couldn’t believe they are grown-ups holding high positions in the industry where they belong to. However, it was AJP who was really the main “attraction” when the news was spread maybe due to her immense popularity. She was more like the victim of their vicious attack & unfair judgement. Fast forward, many things had happened. Many changes in Rudin & Pascal’s career or position. It’s only now that AJP talked about it though in passing only, taking the high road instead.

    I am amazed by her concern for Pascal despite how she was treated. Her kindness is one of a kind. You know, it’s only Karma who can really “get” the person who wronged another.

  • toastie postie

    I am too. I don’t know if I could have been so generous. But then there are children involved and that does make a difference – just like those haters that keep hoping for the JPs to split – never thinking or caring what that would do to 6 children and other family members. Selfish like the person, they supposedly follow., but are pretty bad fans, if even fans.

  • snakeskin

    Wow! Angelina is on a roll, culminating in AFI tonight.
    So much to catch up on.
    Glad she is only speaking about the Sony hacks when she is good and ready.
    Also identifying the emails as a personal attack on her, takes them out of the ‘oh this is the way Rudin speaks about everyone’ excuses that were given at the time.
    I hope one day he gets his come uppance.

    Angelina Jolie Honoured With Innovator Award
    …………………….
    Angelina Jolie Was Honoured For Her Career Achievements With A Special Prize At The Wall Street Journal Innovator Awards In New York On Wednesday Night (04nov15).

    Picture: Angelina Jolie , Brad Pitt – WSJ. Magazine 2015 Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art – Arrivals – New York, New York,…The Hollywood actress was feted with the magazine’s 2015 Entertainment/Film Innovator prize, and she attended the ceremony in the Big Apple with her husbandBrad Pitt to pick up the trophy.

    Angelina was honoured both for her achievements in Hollywood and her humanitarian work, and other guests included her The Good Shepherd director Robert De Niro.

    Other honourees at the event included artist Richard Serra, Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgaard, fashion designer Miuccia Prada, and Nike boss Mark Parker, among others.

    In an interview with the publication to celebrate her award, Angelina opens up about becoming an ambassador for the United Nations’ Refugee Agency in 2001, revealing she was worried her Hollywood reputation would have a negative impact on the organisation.

    “It was during a time when there was a lot of gossip about me,” she says. “I told them I didn’t think they realised what they’d be bringing upon the agency, that a lot of people didn’t see me the same way they did, and I thought it would be a negative.”

    However, the agency’s high commissioner sympathised with her plight and insisted on offering her the role.

    “He said he was sorry,” Angelina adds. “It was the most amazing thing. I’d never had sympathy for something like that.”

    The article also covers her career achievements and her recent cancer prevention surgeries, which included a mastectomy and the removal of her ovaries, and her husband Brad Pitt lavished praise on his wife for her bravery.

    “I’ll tell you this about her surgeries: Once the decision was made, she was on the operating table two weeks later,” he said. “You have to understand that this is a woman who never knew she’d make it to 40.

    “This is a woman who had watched her mother, aunt and grandmother become sick and eventually succumb, all at an early age. Her drive, her absolute value in herself, is defined by the impact she can have during her time here – for her kids and for the underprivileged and those suffering injustices.”

    Yeah… SEXISM & EMAIL leaks… two of the most sensitive topics in Hollywood.

    I’ve always wondered what are her thoughts about these topics especially that many celebs are beginning to talk about feminism, equality on talent fees & the like. Most of them came out hypocritical in their POVs mainly because it seems they are only doing that to promote their projects. They didn’t even say anything during the time AJP was really the center of the controversy (though no fault of AJP of course). It seems they are only talking to serve their interests, not really to help in general.

    With AJP, her opinions were very well-thought out and even acknowledging that she had good opportunities BUT doesn’t mean she will just sit around & do nothing. Her way of helping is by giving opportunities to lesser but talented individuals, to open the doors for them as well.

    Cinematographer Christian Berger on Angelina Jolie’s By the Sea
    …………………………….
    The selection of Angelina Jolie Pitt’s By the Sea for AFI Fest’s opening night has instantly turned the drama into an Oscar contender. The film’s editor, original script and director now appear on various awards season prediction lists and the film seems to further cement the reputation of acclaimed cinematographer Christian Berger.

    Berger is known for his multiple collaborations with Michael Haneke and even received an Oscar-nomination for The White Ribbon (2009).

    The cinematographer is the developer of the Cine Reflect Lighting System and the winner of a series of top industry awards including the LA Film Critics prize. He also received recognition from the NY Film Critics Circle and from the US National Society of Film.

    “They told me that they found some of my statements about lighting on the internet, and maybe my European cultural roots might have played a role as well,” Berger tells KFTV, explaining how director Angelina Jolie-Pitt and her husband Brad Pitt – who co-stars and produces the film – recruited him for the project.

    To find DoPs and Cinematographers for your upcoming film, TV or commercials shoot – take a look at those listed on our KFTV website by clicking here.

    By the Sea was filmed in sunny Malta while in The White Ribbon Berger battled with limited light and storming thunder in Germany. Is one environment harder to film in than the other?

    “I had to battle against the darkness in The White Ribbon,” Berger says. “It was the opposite in Malta as a bright hot summer in the south of France was part of Angelina’s script. I would say that it is the same thrilling challenge to handle harsh sunlight outdoors (and to bring it indoors) as it is to create darkness in a hotel room.”

    Is it true that his latest work only used natural light as was reported in some industry press recently?

    “It’s a wrong way to put it,” says Berger. “I don’t ‘use’ natural light. I create a light which looks very natural because for me there is no light more beautiful and richer in atmospheres than natural light in all its variations. But it’s a nice compliment if people think there was no other lighting used.

    “I think I do just the same as what all the famous painters did in the past. I observe very, very precisely the quality and the ‘behaviour’ of natural light.”

    It is interesting Berger mentions the great painters as a reviewer once commented that The White Ribbon being so beautifully filmed that every shot is a work of art. Are such high aesthetics as important for Berger?

    “Not really,” he says, “I don’t really know what ‘a beautiful image’ is, except that it should be ‘alive’.

    “It’s all about the old question ‘are we only able to depict flesh or also the soul?’. That said, even with all our high-tech equipment I still cannot say why one image is alive and the next one is not. That’s still magic. In any case, the form has to come out from the script and the director’s intentions. It has to take into account the whole scene, the whole film.”

    Much has been said about the relationship between a film’s director and its DoP. So what are Berger’s views on this?

    “To me, it is a lot like the relationship between a conductor and the soloist,” says Berger. “I am here to serve the visions of writers, directors, actors and my own, and help make them visible. What I have learnt as a filmmaker is to respect the actors’ work, and how lonely and exposed they are once I push the start button on my camera.”

    Jolie has set By the Sea in the 1970s as a period free from today’s many technological distractions. What does Berger make of the many apps that have become an integral part of work on and off set, and what advice he would offer aspiring cinematographers?

    “I don’t see apps as a problem if they make sense,” Berger says. “By that I mean that there are very useful tools around but they can become a problem if you replace your own senses with them.

    “I would advise those entering the profession to study human perception, always search for the shortest way between your eyes and the subject and don’t believe in tools; the best camera sits in your head and in your heart.”
