Is Angelina Jolie Really a ‘Spoiled Brat?’

We’re having to ask a question we never thought we’d have to ask when it comes to one A-List actress here at Luxe  Models this week; is Angelina Jolie really a spoiled brat?

A Universally Held Truth

We’ve used many words to describe the new Mrs Pitt here on the Luxe Models Blog in the past. Common descriptions of the humanitarian include ‘visionary,’ saint-like’ and ‘Mother Teresa.’

OK, so we’re exaggerating, but you get the point. A universally held truth of the A-List world is that Angelina Jolie has somehow avoided the sense of entitlement that’s stricken down many of her peers at the pinnacle of their tenures in showbiz.

“Minimally Talented Spoiled Brat.”

Yet one person doesn’t seem to agree. According to Digital Spy, a recently leaked email conversation between movie producer Scott Rudin and Sony co-chairperson Amy Pascal, saw the latter label Jolie a “minimally talented spoiled brat.”

The pair were discussing the actress’ alleged wish for acclaimed director David Fincher to spearhead one of her latest projects, Cleopatra. Fincher was attached to the Steve Jobs biopic that until last month, Sony was slated to oversee. Since, the picture has fallen under the creative management of rival film industry monolith, Universal Pictures.

A $180 Million Ego-Bath

Rudin was quite vocal in several emails when it came to both his opinion of Jolie and the concept of a Cleopatra movie. One email scathingly read: "I've told you exactly how I want to do this material. It's the ONLY way I want to do this material. I'm not remotely interested in presiding over a $180m ego bath that we both know will be the career-defining debacle for us both."

Rudin went on to say: "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. I have no desire to be making a movie with her, or anybody, that she runs and that we don't.”

Maybe that’s Why We Find Them so Fascinating

In other words, this is just the opinion of one man. Yet his opinion has left Luxe Models wondering, do we really know the true personalities behind the celebs whose wardrobes we admire so much?  Maybe that’s why we find them so fascinating!
