Remember when that Sony hack happened and Amy Pascal and a few other honchos at Sony Pictures talked a lot of smack about Angelina Jolie?
Angelina Jolie does. And Angelina Jolie remains above it all.
When The New York Times asked the Oscar winner what she thought of the rather unprofessional and potentially hurtful exchanges about her, she was eloquent and flawless as ever in her reply.
“I didn’t read them…Someone told me [about them]. There are certain things that bother me and certain things that don’t. Personal attacks on me? I think I’m just so used to it. Honestly, my first instinct was that I was worried about Amy. I had someone call her and ask if she was O.K. Not because I’m a saint, but because I think we have to look at the bigger picture. She’s got kids. I knew it was going to unravel for her.”
Let Angelina Jolie be a model to us all whenever we’re included on a reply-all message by accident: Be the bigger person and ask the sender if he or she is alright. It will not only make them look awful, it’ll also make them feel awful…and you’ll just look holy, classy, and not like someone who used to make out with her brother. Slay, queen.
