Elizabeth Banks: Kristen Stewart Asked to Play Gay Character in 'Charlie's Angel'

Monday, 18 Nov, 2019

"Charlie's Angels" is in theatres now. Ella Balinska's Jane Kano is the humorless operative, not the MIT-trained engineer.

Points were made! Charlie's Angels hits theaters nationwide this Friday, November 15. I do not love the newest reboot of Charlie's Angels, which Elizabeth Banks wrote and directed.

"I think you'll be a great Batman". It could only have been done by her.

Well now it's 2019 and Hollywood is looking to reboot the franchise once again. Here, among the angels, she's the veteran. This show starred Kate Jackson as Sabrina Duncan, Farrah Fawcett (then Majors) as Jill Munroe, and Jaclyn Smith as Kelly Garrett.

She added that sexuality was not written into the script for any of the characters, but that she "didn't want to put any limits on anyone". I mean, she wanted to be gay in the movie and I'm like, 'Yeah'.

Balinska particularly recalls seeing other actresses of color and resonating with them on screen. If we compare Robert Pattinson's popularity to three months ago, they had an average popularity of 39.7, whereas now their average popularity over the last ten days is 77.4.so by that measure, Robert Pattinson is getting more popular!

Benjamin Lee from Guardian gave 3.5/5 stars saying, "It's better than it could have been while also not being quite good enough to warrant any further instalments". "And the fact that I can potentially inspire someone the way that they inspired me when I was that age is incredible". However, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey's Don't Call Me Angel has failed to set the charts on fire. If you're a fan of good action movies, then you do not want to miss these two hours of pure, silly, cinematic joy. Banks' Bosley was special because she was the first Angel to become a Bosley. Only, she almost flubbed her offer, she explained. As the movie progresses, you realise she is actually a wild and rebellious Angel who doesn't care for rules.

It was "amazing luck, as well, to just have fallen into it with the group of people I worked with on it".

Still, it does have one thing going for it that the others didn't, and that is Kristen Stewart as we've never seen her before.

The franchise began as a hugely successful TV series with Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson as the chosen Angels, before launching the movie franchise in 2000 followed by the sequel Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
