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!”

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.”

“There was a group of us girls coming up,” Elizabeth said. “A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not. I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn’t all make it. We’re not all still here.

“I do love Sharknado,” she quickly added about Tara‘s Syfy movie.

FYI: Elizabeth is wearing an Elie Saab dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, a Lee Savage clutch, and Jennifer Fisher earrings and ring.
