In another set of emails between the two, Rudin called Angelina Jolie a "minimally talented spoiled brat." Pascal’s involvement didn’t stop there; Culpepper wrote the following to Pascal in an email: "I'm not saying he's a whore, but he's a whore."

God damn it, just do something with your life.'" The star-studded night was full of laughs and fun as Big Sean also took the stage.

While Middleton has quite the famous derrière herself, the Brit calls out Kardashian West’s behind and society’s general interest with butts. "No year is complete without a bottom story, and the ‘Rear of 2014' award undoubtedly goes to Kim Kardashian, after her posterior exploded all over the internet last month. I must say that mine — though it has enjoyed fleeting fame — is not comparable," she writes. “But the Kim butt story did make me pause. What is it with this American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession. Kim's aim, apparently, was to break the Internet, but I'm not sure she's going the right way about it.”
