Oh how the people over at Sony must not want their jobs!
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last week or so, there has been a widespread hack over at Sony Pictures Entertainment. President Obama, actress Angelina Jolie and comedian and actor Kevin Hart have all been targets in the leak of “confidential” (and I use the term confidential loosely) emails from Sony Pictures Entertainment executives.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Smith children, Willow and Jaden are the latest targets in leak of info.
Now infamous for her strongly worded opinions about Hollywood’s finest, Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal had some less-than-favorable thoughts about DiCaprio, 40, after he pulled out of the planned Steve Jobs biopic earlier this year.
“Was this about the deal… or did he just change his mind?” asked Mark Gordon, the producer of the Aaron-Sorkin-penned film in emails obtained by The Daily Beast. “The latter,” Pascal wrote, before Gordon responded, “Horrible behavior.”
“Actually despicable,” Pascal shot back, showing no tolerance for DiCaprio’s decision to skip on the film about the Apple innovator in favor of shooting the upcoming thriller The Revenant.
Last month, TriStar exec. Tom Rothman sent an email to Pascal with a link to an interview that the Smith children did with The New York Times’ T Magazine. “1. Read this,” Rothman wrote of the article, which featured the offbeat opinions of Willow, 14, and Jaden, 16. “2. they r home schooled: don’t let this family date your movies!!!”
I don’t know who’s responsible for these leaks but they are putting SONY on BLAST!
