The Story Behind The Icy Photo Of Angelina And The Sony Exec

If looks could kill, the photo above would've seen Angelina Jolie charged with murder. 

The photo, now famous, was taken in December last year. 

Jolie had come face-to-face with Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal just one day after the pair found themselves at the centre of the Sony hacking scandal. 

In an e-mail exchange between Pascal and producer Scott Rubin, Jolie was described as a 'minimally talented spoiled brat'. 

Therefore, when the two women bumped into each other at The Hollywood Reporter's 2014 Women in Entertainment Power 100 Breakfast, things were a little awkward. 

Photographer Alex Berlineris captured the intense moment and spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about what it was like to witness the tense encounter. 

"There was a very distinct energy in the room. It's one of those things that you say 'Great I got the image - and, boy, was that a tough situation to document". 

Berlineris was only able to take four photos before a minder stepped in saying that was enough.
