For Now, Larry Ellison’s Daughter Prefers Twitter Oracle

Megan Ellison, 26-year-old daughter of the third-richest man in America, has so far refused all interview requests. Nevertheless, LA Times reporters Ben Fritz and Steven Zeitchik have managed to put together a solid profile of the moneyed indie producer, beginning with these fabulous first two paragraphs:

She’s a 26-year-old former party girl with social anxiety issues, a motorcycle-riding iconoclast who dropped out of USC and attends meetings in Led Zeppelin T-shirts.

Just a few days ago, a woman – Megan Ellison – won a CAA auction in Cannes for rights to a pair of Terminator sequels starring the man several headlines this morning now refer to as “the Sperminator.” Her company, Annapura Pictures, reportedly beat out Lionsgate for the package, which also has Fast Five director Justin Lin attached.

Long before the first of these two films hits the big screen, you can bet that a YouTube time travel parody (or five) involving Arnold, Maria, the housekeeper, and love child will surface. Meanwhile, with folks in Hollywood used to tolerating loose morals, it’s unlikely this latest Schwarzenegger indiscretion will get in the way of visions of big dollar signs.
