There's been other Speilberg movies with a female lead. Banks has a problem with talking without thinking or researching.

That's pretty shameful for a movie forum.

I'm genuinely curious.
There's one, big deal. So there isn't any other, boohoo. Ohh what now Spielberg is a sexist? It's always the same with you miserable people. Always find something to complain about.

So if a movie has a woman as the lead it's not a fun movie?

Storm in a teacup. The real question is, how did this throwaway comment from a D-list non-celebrity make the top celebrity news of the day? Must be a slow week for People magazine, ET, etc.

By the way, Spielberg was raked over the coals by black women activists when it was reported he would direct their beloved The Color Purple. Look it up.

Damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

Sad that you can't have a conversation without resorting to insults.
