Elizabeth Banks Apologizes for Forgetting 'Color Purple' in Remarks About Steven Spielberg

Elizabeth Banks was slammed by people on social media this week after she forgot that Steven Spielberg directed the iconic film The Color Purple while slamming him for not featuring female leads in his movies.

The 43-year-old actress and director was accepting Women in Film’s Excellence in Film award on Tuesday (June 13) when she made the remark. After someone in the audience called out the mistake, she kept on talking, something she addresses in an apology statement she just released.

“I went to Indiana Jones and Jaws and every movie Steven Spielberg ever made, and by the way, he’s never made a movie with a female lead. Sorry, Steven. I don’t mean to call your ass out but it’s true,” Elizabeth said during her speech.

Elizabeth Banks Calls Out Steven Spielberg About His Male-Driven Films
