Wow! This is some inspiring selflessness!
When we heard Angelina Jolie had been called a "minimally talented spoiled brat" by some Sony execs, we thought for sure the Oscar winner would be furious!
But the By The Sea writer/director/star says the jabs from the leaked emails between Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin didn't faze her in the slightest!

In fact, when someone told her about the email chain, she was less worried about herself and more about the woman on the other end of the hack!
In her open New York Times interview, she revealed:

Amy Pascal got such negative press after the public saw her leaked emails that she was forced to step down as chairman of Sony.
But is her replacement any better?
Tom Rothman hasn't been head of the company very long, and already he's been caught throwing shade at stars.

In an December 2013 email exchange published by WikiLeaks, Pascal dropped the then-head of TriStar a line to congratulate him on the quality of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.
Rothman said thanks, but unnecessarily added about star Ben Stiller:

Thought the Sony hacks were over? Wikileaks thinks otherwise! The classified media publishers announced that they archived about 173,000 emails from the movie studio's hacking scandal last year.
So we haven't heard the last of stars being dissed by movie execs.

The first exchange to pop up on the rude radar (rudar?) is between Say Anything director Cameron Crowe and former Sony exec Amy Pascal, who stepped down from her job shortly after several of her not-so-nice emails were leaked.
Sent on March 31, 2014, the emails give a behind-the-scenes look at Crowe's upcoming film Aloha. A little TOO behind.

Because they got high, because they got high, because they got high!
Former Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal has been somewhat stalled in her transition to an on-the-lot producer because her new office suite is plagued with marijuana stench!
Hmmm, who do you know that's worked with Sony in the past that might like the ganja?

In a move that shouldn't be surprising to anyone who followed the recent hacking scandal, Amy Pascal is stepping down as the co-chair of Sony Pictures.
After a slew of leaked e-mails that included racist jokes about President Barack Obama, slamming stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie, and exceptionally poor grammar, Pascal is moving on.

Sony has confirmed Pascal's departure, though she won't be leaving the studio entirely.
According to the latest reports, she plans to launch a new production company based out of Sony's Culver City lot.
As for who will replace Pascal, we'll just have to wait for Sony's (probably imminent) announcement.

This is an option.
Sony has faced a lot of criticism for their decision to NOT release The Interview after threats were made against any movie theater that played the controversial movie.
But while the studio has claimed they would like to release the film someway, somehow - no options have opened up and there has been zero offers from any "none major VOD or one major ecommerce site."
However that may all change because BitTorrent Inc. has expressed their desire to provide to the film to the masses, and they believe Sony should definitely consider using their site to release the film!
Here's what they said in a statement

While many people would think they should call Scandal's Olivia Pope to clean up Sony's PR mess following the hackings, they should really call THIS woman!
Judy Smith is the inspiration behind Kerry Washington's TV character, and she's been brought in by Sony to consult on how to fix their nightmare.

Smith and Sony's Amy Pascal have been working together to fix the nightmare the studio is facing after deciding to pull The Interview from theaters.
