Y’all remember The Sony Hack? The crime that unleashed The Interview on us all? Well, a lot of the story was about the emails between then-Sony-head-and-now-fired Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin and their Mean Girl attacks on Wikipedia has posted some of the emails and La Jolie comes off as smart and . Well, professional and kind, while Rudin and Pascal come across as bitches who hate.
Any time Jolie emails one or both of them about a proposed Cleopatra film, Pascal and Rudin snipe about her, as when Rudin writes:
“I’m not remotely interested in presiding over a $180m ego bath … the last thing anybody needs is to make a giant bomb with her that any fool could see coming… I have no need to keep her happy. 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.”
When Pascal forwards her email bitchfest with Rudin to Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, Lynton writes:“You guys are nuts to put this in an email.”
Sound advice; not taken.
Oh, and the best is when Scott Rudin asked La Jolie if she was interested in starring as Ma Ingalls … seriously … in his film adaptation of alongside … wait for it … Tom Cruise Pa Ingalls. Seriously? Tom Cruise as Pa Ingalls? Everyone knows he's Half-Pint!
Still, Angelina liked the script, but said no to him because:
“I love Little House but don’t think I am the best person to do it. You have a veryspecial project and a brilliant script and I am beyond grateful you would give me a chance to consider it.”
This was at the same time Rudin was screeching about Angelina being a
Meanwhile, Jolie just goes along with her life; oh, and her job — unlike Pascal — and her dignity — unlike Scott Rudin.
Madonna went to see Lin-Manuel Miranda in the Broadway musical Miranda wrote, directed and stars in the life story — told through hip-hop — of Alexander and he is now Broadway’s newest darling.
So, Madge was sitting in the audience, being Madge, and ALLEGEDLY texted all the way through Act 2 and Miranda was not having it and he Tweeted:
“Tonight was the first time I asked stage management NOT to allow a celebrity — who was texting all through Act 2 — backstage #noselfieforyou.”
The Tweet was later deleted, but a source in the audience — perhaps it was Lohan looking for another theater gig … as an usher — says Madonna was texting throughout the night:
“It was definitely her. She was texting, I believe, although at one point she also pulled out a . She was also 20 minutes late and caused quite a stir getting to her seat.”
Eventually Madge put down her phone after someone in the audience — and it might have been Patti LuPone who hates phones in theaters — hissed, “Shut it off!”Still, Madge may have had good reason; perhaps her new boyfriend was getting out of middle school and needed a ride back to the manse?
See, for the past several years, Scientology has experienced money troubles — despite its tax-free status — and while they still have for their nonsense., most of that is in real estate and overhead, and those kinds of “liquid” assets are a problem because, thanks to the internet and the documentary and all that bad press from people who’ve escaped the “church,” people are no longer
Enter Cruise, chief CoS moneymaker. CoS desperately needs to be a success because Tom’s backend deals ... tee hee, backend deals ... with studios are sweet and his money is about all they have coming in. I mean, that’s what
ALLEGEDLY working for Miscavige told Wisconsin police when they brought him in for questioning in July 2013.
“Where do you think the funding comes from?” an investigator asked private investigator Daniel Powell in .
“Probably Tom Cruise,” Powell says, to audible laughter. “I’m being serious, that’s probably where it comes from. [He] funds the church with anything they need. So he’s pretty much funding all of this. We make jokes all the time — when Tom Cruise’s last movie came out — it was a terrible movie, we were going around telling everybody how awesome the movie was. Go see the movie so Tom Cruise can get paid and we can get paid.”
I know it sounds crazy, but it also sounds true. I mean, no wonder he divorces his wives before the ten year end of pre-nup clause comes into effect. And he’s selling off real estate like there’s no tomorrow: his can be yours for $13 million, while his Telluride manse is on the market for $59 million.
He needs the cash. Xenu spaceships don’t come cheap. ALLEGEDLY.
is in a new film called Child 44 which, for some reason, is expected to bomb, so he’s not doing a lot of press for it. But when he does press, and when he’s asked about the Russian accent he use in the film, well, he says this:
Well, she wants you to know more …
“Last week, chef (and great man) Mario Batali challenged me to raise awareness and money for the NYC Food Bank by trying to live on $29 dollars for the week (what families on SNAP are trying to survive on). Dubious that I could complete the week, I donated to the Food Bank at the outset, and all of us at the goop office began the challenge.
As I suspected, we only made it through about four days, when I personally broke and had some chicken and fresh vegetables (and in full transparency, half a bag of black licorice). My perspective has been forever altered by how difficult it was to eat wholesome, nutritious food on that budget, even for just a few days—a challenge that 47 million Americans face every day, week, and year. A few takeaways from the week were that vegetarian staples liked dried beans and go a long way—and we were able to come up with a few recipes on a super tight budget.
After trying to complete this challenge I would give myself a C- …”
And she goes on to talk about how hard people have it, unless you’re GOOP, but seriously? A C-?
Gwyneth, honey? You delusional f**kwad? You.Failed. While many in this country eat for far less than $29 a week, you couldn’t handle four days without breaking, so stop trying to act like you understand.You deserve an F, as in Shut.The.F.Up.
And what did Kimye do?
He didn’t budge, didn’t crack a smile, didn’t even acknowledge Schumer. Kash Kow appeared to smile, though with as much Botox as she has in her face it’s hard to tell, but … she and Kanye then moved further down the carpet for more photos while Amy picked herself up off the ground.
Man, do those two take themselves so seriously.
Anyway … now a Pennsylvania judge has ruled that Sherri is legally the mother of their surrogate baby, Lamar Sally Jr., and Lamar Sr. wants Sherri to go on TV and apologize to him.
Might have been a good idea, if they’d done the reveal of Sherri’s maternity on Maury. Lamar could have danced across the stage singing, ‘You’re the mother! You’re the mother!”Christians. They’re funny.
