Is Angelina Jolie a "minimally talented spoiled brat?”
Hollywood is reeling after top secret emails were leaked that also accused Jolie of having a "rampaging ego."
The rude comments came from one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers—Scott Rudin,
the Oscar winner behind such hits at The Social Network and Captain Phillips. He made his true feelings known about Jolie in a series of fiery emails exchanged with Sony Pictures honcho, Amy Pascal.
The emails were released on the internet by hackers calling themselves “The Guardians Of Peace.” But they're really believed to be a front for North Korea, which is furious about Sony’s forthcoming movie The Interview, the James Franco / Seth Rogen comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korean loony boy dictator Kim Jong-un.
The embarrassing Angelina Jolie emails were posted on Gawker.com.
Sam Biddle, senior writer at Gawker.com told INSIDE EDITION, "It is a little jarring to see an Oscar winning producer trash Angelina Jolie, one of the most famous Hollywood figures in the world so openly and so extensively."
Here's what Rudin had to say about Jolie, famed around the world for her beauty and humanitarianism: "She's a minimally talented spoiled brat…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."
Rudin's fury was over Jolie reportedly putting pressure on acclaimed director David Fincher to make a movie about the legendary Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, starring Jolie, instead of Rudin's movie about Apple founder Steve Jobs.
He goes on, "There is no movie of Cleopatra to be made (and how that is a bad thing given the insanity and rampaging ego of [Angelina] and the cost of the movie is beyond me)."
You may recall that the 1963 movie Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor nearly bankrupted 20th Century Fox.
The shocking emails couldn't have surfaced at a worse time for Jolie, who seems to be everywhere these days promoting her new movie, Unbroken.
Biddle said, "What these emails show is that even in Hollywood where everyone is working so hard to manicure their image at all times, everyone is someone's enemy."
