You really can't make this up.

It turns out Sony executives weren't just worried about Angelina Jolie getting in the way of a Steve Jobs biopic. In new leaked emails released on Friday, June 19, it appears the company was also concerned about stars spreading, um, herpes.

According to Daily Mail, some actors were asked at one point or another if they had any cold sores. If so, they then had to fill out a page-long questionnaire detailing the location of the cold sore, what caused them, and what medication was being used to treat them. One unidentified star refused to answer while another Academy Award-winning actress supposedly revealed she had some sores.

But fear not, the crazy continues. Another Wikileaks email revealed that executives had very strict guidelines while searching for the next on-screen Spider-Man. For one thing, the Marvel character couldn't be black — or gay. The character also has to be male, can't smoke tobacco, can't distribute illegal drugs, must refrain from abusing alcohol, and can't have sex before the age of 16. (A new Spider-Man flick is reportedly being casted following Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's roles.)

The FBI confirmed back in December 2014 that North Korea was behind the Sony attacks in retaliation for Seth Rogen and James Franco's comedy The Interview, which joked about assassinating North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Most of the embarrassing emails shed light on producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal, who later stepped down from her position amid the scandal.

Some stars who were previously talked about in the hacked emails include Jolie, Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Kevin Hart, and Leonardo DiCaprio. Pascal and Rudin even made racist jokes about President Barack Obama.
