9 Juiciest Celebrity Secrets Outed in Super Personal Emails

angelina jolieThe recent Sony Pictures cyber attack and hack has uncovered thousands of intra-company emails, executive decisions, and scandalous gossip. Most of the now-unearthed details concerned some of the biggest Hollywood stars, and it seems like not many were immune -- including many celebrity moms and dads. Here are the juiciest details outed in the Sony hack about America's most famous parents:

  1. Angelina Jolie: The mom-of-six was called a "minimally talented spoiled brat" by producer Scott Rudin and criticized for her plan to remake Cleopatra. Within the email, Rudin wrote: "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." Yikes.
  2. Channing Tatum: The new dad, who welcomed daughter Everly Tatum in May 2013 with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, exposed his rather casual email style. Tatum celebrated the roaring release of 22 Jump Street with a rather excited email to co-star Jonah Hill and exec Amy Pascal. He started out with some sweet words and ended it with about 10,000 "HA"s. It's a beautiful sight.

  3. Jessica Alba, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and more: In one message, the hackers revealed the secret aliases celebrities use when they want to stay under-the-radar. This is where we found out that Alba goes by Cash Money, Gellar uses Nelly O'Hara, among others: Neil Deep (Tobey Maguire), Lauren Brown (Natalie Portman), Scott Diggs (Taye Diggs), Ava Harper (Debra Messing). Hopefully they'll make changes so they -- and their kids -- can have some peace.
  4. Amy Adams: Think Hollywood has equal pay? Think again. Aviana's mom and star of American Hustle (along with her other female co-star, Jennifer Lawrence) received 2 percent less back-end compensation than the film's male stars. David O'Russell, the film's director, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, and Jeremy Renner all received a 9 percent compensation, whereas Adams and Lawrence each received only 7 percent. Why? "There is truth here" was Pascal's only response.
  5. Adam Sandler: The funnyman and father to 8-year-old Sadie and 6-year-old Sunny was criticized in yet another hacked email. The execs wrote: "We continue to be saddled with the mundane, formulaic Adam Sandler films ... upper management allows certain talent and filmmakers to bleed us dry with their outlandish requests for private jets, wardrobe, and grooming stylists." Yeah, that's personal.
  6. Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron: The plans to release a Steve Jobs biopic hit a snag when execs couldn't quite agree on a leading man. But they also couldn't come to terms on a female star, resulting in the following nasty email: "Why are we not doing this with Charlize? She is a little bit of a bigger star than Scarlett Johansson." All right, let's not start pointing fingers now.
  7. Kevin Hart: The hit comedian (who's dad to daughter Heaven and son Hendrix) was strongly criticized by execs for not promoting his movie on social media. Did he take it lightly? Not at all. He fired back (via Instagram, poetically) with a poignant response about knowing your own worth. Game, set, match. Win goes to Hart.

  8. Alex Trebek: Our main Jeopardy! man and father to Matthew and Emily threatened to quit the show after an incident during Kids Week. Apparently, the host didn't console one of the losing contestants to the liking of the girl's mom and was asked to re-tape the ending. He obliged but insisted in his email that "maybe it's time for me to move on."
  9. Mathew Knowles: Beyonce's father and the creator of Destiny's Child tried to pitch a DC biopic, according to the email hack. Execs seemed interested in the prospect, but it doesn't look like there's a film coming any time soon.
