Banks, who not only acted in but also produced the 2012 sleeper hit 'Pitch Perfect' left the lead actress, Academy award nominee Anna Kendrick quite perplexed.
Talking about working with Banks, the actress states, "She’s certainly got better legs than Jason Moore! When I found out Jason wasn't doing it, I was a little upset because he had created the first movie and helped me create Beca. So for the first couple weeks on 'Pitch Perfect 2', I kept forgetting he wasn't there. Since Elizabeth only produced the first one, I would sometimes get confused when she would be directing a scene. It was an adjustment, but I think she did a fantastic job."
