Angelina Jolie Responds to Being Called a Talentless Spoiled Brat

angelina jolieRemember the Sony Pictures Entertainment email hack from last year, responsible for leaking the private messages of some of the movie industry's most powerful players to the public? Angelina Jolie, the target of some extremely unkind words in those emails, hasn't forgotten -- but it seems like Angie has forgiven the people who infamously called her a "minimally talented spoiled brat."

Just to remind you of the details, one of the most shocking email exchanges exposed was between Sony cochairman Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin, and it was all about Angie and how to handle her. As you might have guessed from the aforementioned "spoiled brat" comment (which was made by Rudin), the messages weren't particularly pro-Angie -- but as the 40-year-old By the Sea star recently told the New York Times, she's not holding any grudges.

"There are certain things that bother me and certain things that don’t," she said. She continued:

Personal attacks on me? I think I’m just so used to it. Honestly, my first instinct was that I was worried about Amy. I had someone call her and ask if she was okay. Not because I’m a saint, but because I think we have to look at the bigger picture. She’s got kids. I knew it was going to unravel for her.

Unravel, it did: Pascal resigned in the wake of the scandal, though she and Angie are reportedly still on good terms (Rudin later apologized for his words). And of course Angie and Pascal are on good terms -- because Angie handled this situation the same way she handles everything else: with class, dignity and grace.

I can't think of a single instance in which she trashed somebody else to the press, even though she's definitely been in some highly gossip-worthy situations. Somehow she always seems to rise above the petty insults and accusations, which is pretty hard to do in Hollywood. Let's hope more celebs start following her example!
