Elizabeth Banks Reacts to Criticism of Another 'Charlie's Angels' Reboot

Elizabeth Banks is all smiles in a shot from her feature in WSJ. Magazine‘s latest issue, available now.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actress and director had to share with the mag:

On criticism of creating another Charlie’s Angles reboot: “You’ve had 37 Spider-Man movies and you’re not complaining! I think women are allowed to have one or two action franchises every 17 years — I feel totally fine with that.”

On Kristen Stewart’s decision to enter a mainstream movie franchise: “Being in a big franchise allows you to have it all. I recognize the same thing, it’s almost unfair for women. The best roles are usually in small movies, but then you don’t make any money. It’s okay to want to make money.”

On the challenge of directing: “Making movies is like giving birth. It’s really hard, and then three months later, you’re like, look at our baby! You’ve already forgotten the trauma of the entire experience. I’m on the other side of it and living in the positivity right now.”
