LOS ANGELES, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, faced gossip-hungry paparazzi on Sunday as she touched down on LAX.
Pascal has been on the board of the production company since 2003, but rose to prominence last month after a hack on Sony's database resulted in the leak on multiple of her private correspondences.
Because leaked emails from her account contained unflattering comments about A-listers like Angelina Jolie and racial remarks about President Barack Obama, paparazzi questioned her Sunday about the status of her job.
Pascal attempted to avoid photographers as she waited for her car alleging she had "just got off a plane," but eventually gave in when asked if she hoped the release of Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview would save her job following the leak of her private emails.
"I hope so," Pascal, 56, told paparazzi while still awaiting for her ride. Her remarks follow a public where she called the content of her emails "insensitive and inappropriate" and said it was "not a reflection" of who she is.
Sony cancelled the release of The Interview -- a satire featuring a two journalist who plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un -- on Dec. 25 after hackers threatened 9/11-like violence of theaters that showed the film.
Following an unofficial campaign to release the film backed by Hollywood stars, politicians and even President Obama, the film was released on schedule in select theaters and online Christmas day and brought in $1 million on its opening weekend.
