We'd like to imagine that one of the most fun parts about becoming a celebrity is getting to choose an alias to use when trying to avoid detection. Think about it. Given the opportunity, every kid would love to pick a new name. Especially my childhood friend Cornelius Applebee.
But, in the latest leak from the embarrassing Sony Pictures hack, it would appear that some celebrities totally whiffed on their pseudonyms. Fusion's Kevin Roose uncovered the so-called "publicity bibles," which were released by Guardians of Peace, the hacking group that's been wreaking havoc on the studio since last month.
"These documents, which are compiled and distributed among film staff, serve as contact directories for the duration of filming," Roose writes. "They include phone numbers and email addresses for directors, producers, publicists, cast members, and crew. And, in some cases, they include the false names stars assume in order to protect their privacy."
