Charlie's Angels got its modern reboot via Elizabeth Banks' modern spectacles in 2019 with a fresh and unconventional cast. This time, we see Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska play the angels and judging by the trailers that have come out so far, we can't wait to see what we have in store this Friday. There has been a lot of chatter surrounding Kristen's character Sabina and that she is going to be the first LGBTQ angel in the franchise's history.

While speaking about the same with Digital Spy, Elizabeth shared that when she cast Kristen as Sabina, she felt that the character was almost the way that the Twilight star (2008) is in real life, that there isn't a label that "fits" her. "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 okay, but I didn't do that. I just let her be herself in the film. Yeah, I know, and I am," Banks confessed.

"But that was almost in response to someone who was like, 'What are all the boxes therein or whatever?' There was no mention of it in the script whatsoever," the 45-year-old filmmaker shared.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with V Magazine, Stewart got candid about the similarities between herself and Sabina. "You think (my character's) a hard***, but she actually just doesn’t quite know how to (connect), My younger self could’ve related to that immensely. I know how to hide, and not be in the center of things. But now I feel like I have this very solid, modest ‘square-one’ in my life—this foundation," the 29-year-old actress shared.
