Elizabeth Banks isn’t ashamed of her past work.
The director was behind beloved audience favourites like “Pitch Perfect 2”, but also worked on 2019’s “Charlies’ Angels”.
The film earned a disappointing $73.3 million worldwide against a budget of $48 million film.
Banks, who also produced, wrote, and starred in the film, accepted its performance with grace, tweeting at the time, “Well, if you’re going to have a flop, make sure your name is on it at least 4x. I’m proud of #CharliesAngels and happy it’s in the world.”

“I took full responsibility for ‘Charlie’s Angels’ — certainly no one else did,” Banks told Variety. “It was all laid on me and I happily accepted, because what else am I supposed to do?”
While the 2019 film didn’t do well, Banks is hoping her next feature, the dark comedy “Cocaine Bear” will resonate more with audiences.
“‘Cocaine Bear’ is a ginormous risk,” she laughed. “This could be a career ender for me.”
