Angelina Jolie Called a 'Spoiled Brat' by Big Time Movie Producer in Leaked Emails

Angelina JolieIt's hard to find anyone these days with a grudge against Angelina Jolie, but it seems as though at least one producer in Hollywood has a big chip on his shoulder when it comes to the Oscar-winning star. Emails from Scott Rudin leaked from Sony Pictures Entertainment this week, and the Julie and Julia producer had some particularly nasty criticism for Jolie.

Sony has not been having a good time on the Internet lately. A slew of information has been hacked, including a good number of celebrity aliases.

Gawker published some an email exchange they obtained on Tuesday, December 9, between Rudin and Sony Pictures Entertainment's co-chairwoman Amy Pascal. Sony recently lost control of an upcoming Steve Jobs biopic (Universal ended up picking it up), and according to Rudin, it's all "spoiled brat" Angelina Jolie's fault.

Rudin, who has also produced hits like The Social Network and Moneyball, apparently wanted David Fincher (Gone Girl) to direct. Brad Pitt's wife wanted the celebrated director to do her own film, a retelling of Cleopatra that she plans to star in.

Pascal wrote of the 39-year-old actress, "She is upset about us giving [Fincher] Jobs. She wants to talk," to which Rudin replied, "She'll survive it. I don't want to waste my time on this."

It escalated quickly, however, when Rudin continued, "YOU BETTER SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS."

He also wrote, "I'm not destroying my career over a minimally talented spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off her plate for eighteen months so she could go direct a movie." Jolie just made her debut directing her first mega motion picture with Unbroken, due in theaters this Christmas.

"I have no desire to be making a movie with her, or anybody, that she runs and that we don't," he went on. "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. There is NO relationship with any movie star -- ANY one -- that requires our willingness to prostrate ourselves this way in the face of childish, irresponsible, willful and un-partnerly behavior."

Whoa. Sounds like someone is a wee bit bitter. Maybe he's jealous Angelia is prettier than him? Who knows. But one thing is for sure -- never send an email about someone you wouldn't be willing to read to their face. Cyber leaks happen.

Are you surprised that Rudin seemed to lose cool so completely?
