An executive at Sony Pictures made a remark about the size of Michael Fassbender’s manhood when lining him up for a role in a new Steve Jobs biopic, while another executive took aim at Kevin Hart calling him a “whore.”
The German-Irish actor has previously complained about his private parts becoming an acceptable topic of conversation since his revealing role as a sex addict in 2011 movie Shame.
However, it appears the contents of his underwear are still big news in Hollywood after emails obtained during a hack attack on movie giant Sony revealed producer Michael De Luca told a colleague, “(He) makes you feel bad to have normal sized male genitalia.”
According to TMZ.com, Fassbender’s name arose again when screenwriter Aaron Sorkin sent an email to another producer, Scott Rundin, telling him, “I don’t know who Michael Fassbender is and the rest of the world isn’t going to care.”
Rundin faced embarrassment earlier this week when hacked emails revealed he sent a message in which he apparently branded Angelina Jolie a “minimally talented, spoiled brat”.
Sony exec Clint Culpepper is also in the spotlight for referring to Kevin Hart as a “whore” in an email chain. Also according to TMZ, “Kevin made $3 million and then $4 million for his last 2 Sony flicks, yet when he was asked to tweet out a plug for “Think Like a Man Too,” his agent balked because he felt Kevin’s expertise in social media was worth additional money” which prompted Culpepper’s response of “I’m not saying he’s a whore, but he’s a whore.”
Cyber-crooks illegally gained access to the movie studio’s computer systems and databases last month and stole a cache of emails and unreleased movies including Brad Pitt’s Fury and the upcoming Annie remake. They also accessed personal details about stars including Jolie and Cameron Diaz, and salary information for Seth Rogen and James Franco.
UPDATE: Kevin Hart has since responded to the emails. You can read his response, posted to Instagram, below:
