Kristen Stewart’s character in the highly anticipated “Charlie’s Angels” reboot is “definitely gay,” Elizabeth Banks, the film’s writer, producer and director recently confirmed, after previously refusing to put a label on the character’s sexuality.
When the film’s trailer was initially released in June, LGBTQ fans dubbed the reboot “Charlie’s Gayngels” in celebration of the casting of Stewart, a queer actress, as Sabrina Wilson, the hard-partying rebel of the group. Yet, these fans found themselves disappointed when Banks pushed back on speculation that Stewart’s character was queer.
“I don’t feel there is a label that fits her,” Banks said of the character in a September interview with Digital Spy. “The only thing that was important to me was to not label it as anything. It’s fine if the media wants to label it, I think that’s OK, but I didn’t do that.”
Banks, however, backtracked on those comments in a recent interview with Pride Source, stating that Sabrina is “definitely gay.”
