"I don't think anyone's still grappling with it, honestly," says the producer, whose correspondence with then-studio co-chair Amy Pascal was divulged in the November leak.

In November, Sony Pictures fell victim to one of the biggest hacks in history, with emails on display for all to see, including Scott Rudin's correspondence with then-studio co-chair Amy Pascal that saw him joking about president Barack Obama's race and referring to Angelina Jolie as "a minimally talented spoiled brat."

But nearly a year later, Rudin tells THR that he's totally moved on.

"I don't think anyone's still grappling with it, honestly," the producer said during his crowded bash for New York Post reporter Michael Riedel's book Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway, held Oct. 5 at The Lambs Club in New York City.

Rudin's sharply worded emails surprised few in Hollywood, though he has been called out by some — the latest being Jennifer Lawrence in her essay on industry sexism.

Still, the Steve Jobs producer insists it hasn't altered his business habits.

"We were victims of a crime," he said. "I don't think [there's anything to change]."
