My response when I read it is a mix -- amusement, disgust, indifference. I mean, does anyone seriously believe that people who are accomplished in this field would survive and achieve anything without having large egos and acting aggressively to throw their weight around?
Does anyone have such a rose-colored view of reality that these types of conversations seem shocking in any way? It's more that we're just finally seeing the dirty laundry that we could already assume they were strewing around.
I think the comments about Fassbender are amusing. Sorkin doesn't even know who he is. WTF? It was also amusing seeing some agent/rep just about get down on his knees in front of Leonardo DiCaprio and pucker up in order to try to convince him to do the Jobs movie. Just... seriously? No wonder actors have big egos or feel like they are entitled to things.
