Elizabeth Banks Explains How Directing Changes Her Family Dynamic

Elizabeth Banks flashes her midriff on the cover of Net-a-Porter‘s The Edit magazine, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 41-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the female director in Pitch Perfect 2: “I don’t want to pretend it’s not what it is. You can’t not take up the cause the minute you accept the job. I made a funny movie – about girls – and it’s going to make money? It just doesn’t happen.”

On motherhood: “Motherhood changed me in positive ways. It made me more ambitious for my kids. I do everything for them now, because I want this success for my life with them… Directing is a really big decision because it’s a year and a half of my life, and it’s taking my kids out of their daily routine.”

On her cameo role in this summer’s Magic Mike XXL: “I play an ex-stripper. She’s a hot mess, she’s completely not me, which is great!”
