THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
Sony topped $4 billion at the worldwide box office for the first time ever, and Minghella, 33, played a key role in that impressive haul, helping to launch such hits as 21 Jump Street and The Amazing Spider-Man. Both are poised for sequel treatments, and Minghella also is hard at work on Columbia's 2013 slate, which includes the Jaden Smith-Will Smith collaboration After Earth, the Tom Hanks starrer Captain Phillips and the Roland Emmerich-helmed thriller White House Down, toplined by Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.
Moment I knew I wanted to work in the business: When I was in college trying to decide whether to pursue the theater world or the film world, and I realized I could sit in a movie theater and watch four films back-to-back.
Who gave me my first big break: Harvey Weinstein, who gave me my first job in the industry, and Amy Pascal, who gave me the opportunity to really prove myself.
Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Hike in Santa Monica Canyon with my husband, our 1-year-old daughter and our dogs.
My indulgence: Regular mani-pedis.
Can't get through my workday without: A cup of tea, definitely hot. Apricot Ceylon.
