The Cyber attack that is currently holding Sony hostage is exposing more scandal and throwing horrified executives under the bus, as emails and other incriminating correspondence is rapidly becoming public – for better or worse.
Jaden and Willow Smith, the offspring of star couple Will Smith Jada Pinkett Smith are the latest subjects of an email that has been leaked containing details that should have remained private when you consider the insulting tone of the message.
The email is in response to the controversial New York Times interview, in which both Jaden and Willow spewed out interesting reflections of the world at large and quite frankly sounded eerily intelligent in ways that gave readers and observers reason to pause and ponder.
Some people thought both kids were simply nuts while others were vocally impressed. Either way they proved they are not your typical Hollywood spoiled brats – desperate to follow in the footsteps of their famous parents.
Well, it looks like the executives at Sony found the interview to be quite disturbing and now there is proof in the form of an email chain between Tom Rothman, chairman of TriStar, Doug Belgrad, president of SPE’s Motion Picture Group, and of course the always present Amy Pascal, SPE’s co-chairman.
In the email, references were made about the New York Times interview that was interestingly titled: “Jaden and Willow Smith on Prana Energy, Time and Why School is Overrated.”
Basically the email containing a link to the interview was passed around to the participants and it didn’t receive glowing reviews – As Rothman sends the email to Belgrad – he writes in the body of the email: “they r home schooled: don’t let this family date your movies!!!”
Ouch! It’s clear that Sony has no intentions of working with the Smith kids anytime soon – which is weird because the studio is planning to release a Will Smith film sometime in 2016. Hmm…
