While promoting her latest film Pitch Perfect 2, Elizabeth Banks served Tara Reid a low blow during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. She talked about her peers in Hollywood saying:
“There was a group of us girls coming up. 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.”
She did add that she was a big fan of Sharknado though, so that should make her comments seem slightly less bitchy to poor Tara, who was asked about how she felt after hearing the comments. She told TMZ:
“I’ve always been a fan of her work and that’s sad to hear she said those things about me.”
Elizabeth is promoting her directorial debut and said she put herself in the perfect position to get the job.
"I just put myself right at the spot where someone needed to be to get the job. And I prepared. I knew I wanted to direct, so I met DPs, I ran sets, I chose music. I went through the process of directing in little ways — nothing too big or risky or time-consuming. I just started really observing.”
She has had roles in The Hunger Games and The Lego Movie, and now she has turned her hand to directing, it looks like her career is on the ascent.
But Tara was in Sharknado, so well done for that Tara!
