Hollywood filmmakers, actors respond to hacked Sony emails

A trove of internal Sony emails leaked online in the wake of a cyberattack on the studio has got Hollywood buzzing on social media.

In the last few days, hackers have unleashed confidential messages between Sony Pictures co-Chairman Amy Pascal, other Sony executives and big Hollywood figures. Several exchanged messages contain fiery remarks -- some insensitive or racially charged -- about Hollywood filmmakers, actors and even President Obama.

Kevin Hart was called a "whore" by Screen Gems Inc. President Clint Culpepper; Angelina Jolie was referred to as "a minimally talented spoiled brat" by Scott Rudin; Adam Driver was called a "terrible idea" for "Star Wars" by Aaron Sorkin. Some have expressed their outrage over the comments.
