— -- Hollywood insiders' private thoughts about some of the biggest film stars in the world and behind-the-scenes contract negotiations have come to light after internal Sony emails and records were taken by hackers and released.
Many of the controversial emails were exchanged between Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Amy Pascal and mega producer Scott Rudin, both of whom issued public apologies on Thursday.
Here are some of the most-talked-about subjects:
1. Battle of the Blondes
One email reportedly showed a top talent agent trying to land Charlize Theron a coveted role at the expense of Scarlett Johansson, comparing the star power of the two leading ladies.
2. Angelina's Demands
Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie reportedly was the subject of one exchange between Rudin and Pascal, who discussed certain demands Jolie was making during the production of a film she was headlining.
The star has not put out any statement in reference to the allegation. But Pascal and Jolie appear to have spoken since the documents leaked, as they were pictured together at a Women in Hollywood function on Wednesday.
3. Obama Comments
One exchange reportedly included comments about how President Obama might like movies with African American-themes.
Television producer Shonda Rhimes lashed out at the reporting of those exchanges on Twitter.
4. Asking Too Much
Another email reportedly showed that a different studio executive bashed comedian Kevin Hart for demanding more money in exchange for promoting a movie on Twitter.
Hart is the only star to have responded via Instagram to the comments made about him, without specifically mentioning the Sony emails.
'Knowing your self worth is extremely important people... I OWN MY BRAND...I MAKE SMART DECISIONS FOR MY BRAND," he wrote in a message he posted Thursday.
He subsequently shared more posts promoting two of his upcoming movies.
5. Slamming Sandler
One of the leaked documents reportedly showed Sony employees making unflattering remarks about Adam Sandler's movies, but the company was quick to release a statement standing by the comedian.
Sony’s statement Wednesday said it had an "enormously successful partnership" with Sandler and planned to be in business with him "forever."
