Angelina Jolie Slammed by Sony Producer

Sony is not having a very good week. After several of Sony Pictures films were leaked, many of the company’s in-house emails were also revealed to the public. One particular email thread, between producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal, is making waves. The thread contains several nasty accusations about Angelina Jolie and reveals the drama behind the Steve Jobs biopic Jobs.

The emails seem to center on Pascal and Rudin wanting David Fincher to direct the biopic, but finding it difficult to nab him due to Jolie wanting him to direct her Cleopatra reboot. In the emails Rudin warned Pascal to "SHUT ANGIE DOWN BEFORE SHE MAKES IT VERY HARD FOR DAVID TO DO JOBS." Pascal did not take kindly to the threat and the email thread exploded from there, with the co-chair telling Rudin, "do not f--king threaten me."

And while the two lobbied insults at each other, Jolie receives the brunt of the scorn from the execs. Rudin continued to complain about "the insanity and rampaging spoiled ego of [Angelina Jolie]," referring to her as a "minimally talented spoiled brat."

Jolie wasn't the only celeb discussed in the emails though. Michael Fassbender's, ahem, body of work is mentioned and Rudin calls producer Megan Ellison a "bipolar 28-year-old lunatic." At one point Pascal, after enduring countless email-fits from Rudin, simply writes back, "Why are u punishing me."

The Biggest Celebrity Feuds of 2014

This has been a vicious year for celeb beefs. From low-blows via instagram to the real life blows in nightclubs (lookin' at you Orlando Bloom and Biebs), it has been a year full of fighting. Here are the biggest celebrity feuds of 2014.

Iggy Azalea vs. Snoop Dogg: This one was a little bit ridiculous - and pretty one sided. Snoop fired shots first with an unwarranted picture on Instgram of "Iggy Azalea without makeup." And after that, well, he hasn't really stopped provoking the Australian rapper. All in all Iggy's been pretty mature about the whole situation, simply asking for an explanation and denying she was "fuming mad" about the situation. Most of Iggy's tweets in response have been deleted - Snoops not so much. Check out the pic that started it all
