Angelina Jolie is the latest star to be implicated in the recent Sony email hacks — and while her messages may not have leaked, emails have surfaced in which she is seemingly dissed by producer Scott Rudin!
In the notes believed to be exchanged between Rudin and Amy Pascal — the co-chair of Sony Pictures — the producer explains the 39-year-old actress was upset to learn acclaimed director David Fincher was tied to Rudin’s project, a Steve Jobs biopic (no, not the one with Ashton Kutcher), when she wanted him to direct her Cleopatra biopic.

He reached out to Pascal about the possibility of Angie snagging the director for her own project, and makes his feelings about the actress pretty clear in the emails. In one he states, “YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS’”
And it only gets worse.
In one message, he writes, “I have zero appetite for the indulgence of spoiled brats and I will tell her this myself if you don’t.”

Another message continues, “I’m not destroying my career over a minimally talented spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off her plate for 18 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.”
