    Actor Kevin Hart and Amy Pascal, former Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment arrive at the premiere of Screen Gems' "The Wedding Ringer" at the TCL Chinese Theatre on January 6, 2015 in Hollywood, California.

    In her first interview since her exit as co-chairman of Sony Pictures, Amy Pascal acknowledged she was fired.

    Speaking to journalist Tina Brown at the Women in the World conference Wednesday night in San Francisco, Pascal joked, "All the women here are doing incredible things in this world. All I did was get fired.''

    After a long reign as the head of Sony Pictures, the studio last week announced Pascal was stepping down and would start a new production venture at Sony. She has already inherited several of the studio's biggest upcoming projects, including the next Spider-man film, to be made in partnership with Marvel Studios.

    Pascal opened up about the trauma of the hacking attack that preceded her departure, as well as what she called her "new adventure.''
