Elizabeth Banks Says Steven Spielberg is Sexist

Elizabeth Banks was awarded the Women In Film Crystal Award on Tuesday for her work in the industry, including her involvement in franchises such as The Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect, and she did not waste her platform.

At the event, the producer/director/actress took the opportunity to call out director Steven Spielberg for his lack of female leads. “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.” While someone suggested The Color Purple, which starred Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey, that film was released in 1985. His other female-led films were 1974’s The Sugarland Express (Goldie Hawn) and 1989’s Always (starring Holly Hunter).
