Elizabeth Banks on Her Marriage: I Never Met Anyone I Liked More

Elizabeth Banks on Her Marriage: I Never Met Anyone I Liked More

Elizabeth Banks is as stunning as ever on the cover of Allure‘s June 2015 issue, on newsstands May 26.

Here’s what the 41-year-old Pitch Perfect 2 director and actress had to share with the mag:

On directing Pitch Perfect 2: “Once you get offered a studio job, as a woman, its really hard to say no because they don’t let women do this very often. So I knew I needed to embrace it and I couldn’t mess it up. Because if you mess it up, they don’t let you do it again, and you become representative of female directors as a whole. Like, “See girls can’t do it.”

On her theme in life: “If I had to pick a theme of the things I do, it would be: girls win.”

On her marriage to Max Handelman: “Really, what happened was I’ve never met anyone I liked more. In the early years did I have crushes or little interests here and there? I know my husband did, and so did I, but we stayed together. We still to this day take the long view. We have always dreamed about our life together. And we work together every day, and we have a lot of respect for each other on every level. And then there’s love. And then there’s lust. So its great.”
