Angelina vs. Scott Rudin
With a leaked email attacking the personal and professional mentality of the actress written between producer Scott Rudin and Sony Chairman Amy Pascal in 2014, true feelings about Jolie were revealed. Calling Jolie a “minimally talented spoiled brat” that was “seriously out of her mind” when finding out that she didn’t see the Cleopatra film in the same light that they did, Rudin exposed how he truly felt about her to Pascal; and eventually the world.
Rudin’s dislike for Jolie ran so deep that he even wrote “Nooooooo noooooo noooooo please! Not a meeting” when Pascal suggested a meeting between the three of them regarding the direction of the film. Following the exposed email, Rudin and Pascal both released a formal apology to the actress and the public and retracted their comments. But, just like little kids that caught doing some bad, they are only sorry when they get caught; it is clear that Jolie’s reputation among Hollywood might resemble similar feelings like that of the public.
