In philosophy, Pascal's Wager is the idea that a rational person should live each day as if God exists. In Hollywood, Pascal's Wager is now the idea that a rational studio head should live each day as if every single one of her emails could be leaked to the public at any time. For inspiring this principle, Amy Pascal is stepping down from her job as head of Sony Pictures. She will stay on at the studio as a producer. "I have spent almost my entire professional life at Sony Pictures," Pascal said in a statement. "I am energized to be starting this new chapter based at the company I call home. I have always wanted to be a producer."
