Aneglina Jolie isn’t someone you really want to get on your bad side, as she does have a bit of pull in Hollywood and the celebrity world. Sony executive Amy Pascal recently had some emails leak that said a negative thing or two about Jolie, and it was only a matter of time until they saw one another again.
When they did… it was priceless.
On the evening of Wednesday, December 10, Jolie attended an event for women in Hollywood, and she bumped right into Pascal, according to TMZ. Needlesss to say, but it wasn’t a very cordial or happy meet-up.
The icy stare from Jolie was caught on camera, and it’s one that no one would ever be able to forget if it was mere inches from your face. That would be the case for Amy Pascal, whose facial expression also tells one of complete regret and even fear.
The leaked emails between Pascal and producer Scott Rudin were about the film Jobs, which is to be directed by Scott Fincher. From there, the emails turned into derogatory comments about Angelina Jolie, and also racially charged comments about President Barack Obama and his taste in movies.
“‘Would he like to finance some movies.’ said Pascal, ‘I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?'” To which Scott replied, ’12 YEARS.’ Amy responded with, ‘Or the butler. Or think like a man?’, which Scott replied ‘Ride-along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart.’ [sic]”
Rudin had gone on to apologize, and he let it be known that his remarks were “thoughtless and insensitive” and “not funny at all.” Mind you, Rudin is a producer on Chris Rock’s new film Top Five, which features a cast that consists primarily of African-American actors and actresses
Amy Pascal also went on to apologize and tried to smooth things over.
“The content of my emails to Scott (Rudin) were insensitive and inappropriate but are not an accurate reflection of who I am. Although this was a private communication that was stolen, I accept full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended.”
As the Daily Mail pointed out, the apology didn’t seem to do much good when Amy Pascal went in for a hug with Angelina Jolie. Even though Pascal is attempting to get a hug, Jolie looks like she has her claw out and is ready to strike at any moment.
Comments about Jolie were going back to how David Fincher was to direct Jobs, but she apparently wanted him to direct her starring in Cleopatra. Rudin even said, “YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS!”
That was when Pascal’s comments about Jolie came forward.
“There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing given the insanity 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 into 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.”
Makes a bit more sense now as to why Maleficent… err, Angelina Jolie looked as if she wanted to stare a hole directly through Amy Pascal’s face, doesn’t it?
