Lisa Kudrow has some advice in light of the Sony cyber-attack: “Don’t write anything you don’t want broadcast.”
The “Friends” alum and “Comeback” star discussed the right to privacy on “The Huffpost Show” on Friday.
“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 told Huffington Post network president Roy Sekoff, referring to the Sony execs whose dirty laundry has been aired after hackers released stolen emails.
Kudrow said people would be better off if they had no expectation of privacy in email exchanges.
“It doesn’t matter how many times it says ‘This is confidential, meant for just between the sender and the recipient,'” Kudrow 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.”
In fact, she joked that she’s become opinions-less, just to be safe.
“I think we need to have more boundaries and accountability and a little personal responsibility for what we say,” she said.
Although Kudrow wasn’t mentioned in the leaked emails, fellow A-listers Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie and Kevin Hart were among those criticized. DiCaprio was called “despicable” for pulling out of the Steve Jobs biopic in the latest chain of emails to be released to the public.
Sony co-chair Amy Pascal issued an apology earlier this week for emails in which she joked about President Barack Obama‘s favorite movies, focusing on those starring African Americans.
“The content of my emails to (producer Scott Rudin) were insensitive and inappropriate but are not an accurate reflection of who I am,” she said. “Although this was a private communication that was stolen, I accept full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended.”
