Looks like Angelina Jolie is pretty good with confrontations.
The "Tomb Raider" actress and Amy Pascal, the co-chairperson of Sony Pictures, came face to face at the at The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Power 100 Breakfast on Wednesday, just two days after a thread of emails between Pascal and producer Scott Rudin emerged where he called her a "spoiled brat."
The two were seen chatting passionately and it looked like Pascal was trying to explain herself desperately about the email.
Both Pascal and Rudin released statements apologizing for the harsh words on Thursday. In a statement released by Sony Pictures, Pascal explained that her comments were "insensitive and inappropriate." She also owned up to the email saying that though the conversation was leaked she took "full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended."
Rudin, who called Jolie "minimally talented" also released a statement expressing his regret on making such crude comments.
"Private emails between friends and colleagues written in haste and without much thought or sensitivity, even when the content of them is meant to be in jest, can result in offense where none was intended."
"I made a series of remarks that were meant only to be funny, but in the cold light of day, they are in fact thoughtless and insensitive — and not funny at all. To anybody I've offended, I'm profoundly and deeply sorry, and I regret and apologize for any injury they might have caused," he added.
An email that revealed a heated argument between Pascal and Rudin leaked on Tuesday. Though Pascal didn't have much to say in it, Rudin's comments were pretty nasty.
"I'm not destroying my career over a minimally talented spoiled brat who thought nothing of shoving this off her plate for eighteen months so she could go direct a movie," Rudin wrote.
"I have no desire to be making a movie with her, or anybody, that she runs and that we don't," he added of Jolie. "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," he continued in the email.
Jolie hasn't replied or commented about the emails in public, but on Wednesday's event, she did look a little upset albeit understanding, while Pascal looked apologetic.
