Hollywood producer Scott Rudin has called Angelina Jolie a, “spoiled brat with a rampaging ego.” This was revealed in yet more e mails leaked by the Sony hackers.
It seems like there may be no end to the flow of juicy gossip and bits of secret information that is being released now on a daily basis about various celebrities and movie studio executives, thanks to the people who hacked into Sony Picture’s systems. It’s like last year’s Snowden scandal all over again only funny and much more entertaining.

The Oscar winning producer of No Country for Old Men and such hit films as The Queen and The Social Club does not like the Oscar winning screen siren Jolie very much. Rudin slammed Jolie in a series of e mails to Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal. The producer was angry because he wanted director David Fincher to helm his planned Steve Jobs biopic, while Jolie worked to get Fincher to direct her planned remake of Cleopatra.
“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).I have zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t, ” Rudin e mailed Pascal.
Rudin also insulted Pascal personally writing, “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)…I have zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t.”
And as if that isn’t enough he also had some choice words for producer Megan Ellison, the daughter of billionaire businessman Larry Ellison, calling her a, “Bipolar 28-year-old lunatic.”
Rudin was so angry because Sony eventually decided to pass on his Steve jobs movie.
Pascal, for her part, tried to apologize to Rudin in an e mail from November 21st writing, “What happened is entirely my fault. I have made other kinds of mistakes, but not like this.”
It should be noted that Sony Pictures has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of any of the leaked e mails. Jean Guerin, a spokeswoman for Sony Pictures, said the company would have no response.
