Angelina Jolie breaks silence on Sony email insults
Angelina Jolie was photographed with former Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal at the Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment breakfast in December after hackers leaked scathing Sony emails about Jolie.
The Oscar-winning Angelina Jolie remains “Unbroken” by the scathing Sony emails leaked last year, which trashed her as “a minimally talented spoiled brat.”
“I didn’t read any of them,” she told the New York Times in an interview published Wednesday. “There are certain things that bother me and certain things that don’t. Personal attacks on me? I think I’m just so used to it.”
The cool-headed actress was apparently more concerned for embattled former Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, a participant in the email string bashing Jolie.
“I had someone call her and question if she was OK. Not because I’m a saint, but because I think we have to look at the larger picture,” Jolie said. “She’s got kids. I knew it was going to unravel for her.”
The bombshell back-and-into the world between Pascal and producer Scott Rudin, released over two rounds of hacked Sony correspondences in December, also called the “Maleficent” star “seriously out of her mind” and not compulsory she was an egomaniac.

Rudin later apologized for his “thoughtless and insensitive” missives, and Pascal released a statement saying the “insensitive and inappropriate” emails were “not an accurate suggestion of who I am.”
Jolie went on to discuss a nude scene in her new ’70s-era marital drama, “By the Sea,” which she wrote, produced and directed, but didn’t formerly intend to star in.
Brad Pitt and his wife, Jolie, attend WSJ Magazine’s 2015 Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art on Wednesday in New York City.
It would’ve been “cheating,” she said, to alter the plotted nude scene in light of her preventative double mastectomy, which she underwent in 2013 after learning she had an 87% risk of developing breast cancer.
“There were lots of scenes I wanted to exchange or cut. I realized it was going to be me (naked) in that bathtub. But I told myself, put all of that aside,” she said. “You can’t exchange or cut this scene because you’ve had a mastectomy.”
The actress’s husband, Brad Pitt — who doubles as her on-screen husband in “By the Sea” — has gushed about his wife’s courageous choice to publicly discuss her mastectomy and ovary removal.
“She’s never been a person who hides,” Pitt said in a Wednesday WSJ Magazine profile of his activist wife. “She’s utterly in the offing and sincere about who she is.”
