Elizabeth Banks Blasts Steven Spielberg For Never Casting Female Leads--Twitter Corrects Her

By Brian Skellenger

Actress Elizabeth Banks might think to research a bit more before she criticizes a director.

During Wednesday night's Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, at which Banks was honored for her work directing Pitch Perfect 2, the actress called out Steven Spielberg, saying, "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."

Banks continued her speech by encouraging the audience to go to movies featuring women, which is a noble and valid point.
