Lisa Kudrow Weighs In On Leaked Sony Emails: Executives Should Know Better

Lisa Kudrow On Leaked Sony Emails: Execs Should Know Better

As embarrassing emails between executives continue to be released on a daily basis, there's no end in sight for the crisis that hit Sony Pictures when hackers compromised a vast amount of confidential employee data last month and posted it online. From nasty words about Angelina Jolie and racial jokes about President Obama, to evidence Jennifer Lawrence was paid less than her male co-stars on "American Hustle," the leaks have forced conversations about the expectation of privacy when sending an email.

Star of HBO's "The Comeback" Lisa Kudrow stopped by HuffPost Friday for a conversation with Roy Sekoff and had some interesting things to say about the Hollywood hack. The actress expressed disbelief at the email correspondence, particularly because in the information age, private correspondence never stays private for long.

"How come I know you don't write anything you don't want broadcast in an email? How come I know that? Who's advising people?" Kudrow asked.

"It doesn't matter how many times [an email] says 'This is confidential, meant for just between the sender and the recipient,'" she said. "Why don't we know that there are no rules? Everything is broadcast and published. That's the part I just don't understand."

That tough reality has made Kudrow extremely cautious of what she says.

"I mean, I have almost no opinions anymore," she joked.
