The Schmooze

Natalie Portman Mocks Ryan Seacrest in Gaza Email Trail

The recent Sony hack has left plenty of destruction in its path.

Yet, it also unveiled some incredibly random and hilarious information that we never knew we wanted (and I would argue, still aren’t sure we really need). Like the following chain e-mail correspondence about the war in Gaza, sent to prominent Jewish figures, Sony execs and celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Russell Simmons, Natalie Portman and…Ryan Seacrest?

Originally sent by Ryan Kavanaugh, CEO of Relativity Media at Sony, the “The Social Network” executive producer and the originator of the most unfortunate misspelling of the word Holocaust, the reply-to-all e-mail chain apparently went on for a while.

It also elicited the following Russell Simmons gem:

Portman was apparently perplexed by her inclusion in the crazy mass correspondences, and e-mailed the following to the Sony CEO and his wife: “How did I get on this list? Also Ryan Seacrest?”

Portman definitely has reason to be perplexed (typo-ridden chainmail aside). The American Idol host is definitely not Jewish, and doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Israel. So what is he doing there?

I, for one, am looking forward to a Ryan Seacrest Op-Ed about the two state solution.
