Tara Reid was dissed in a big way by Pitch Perfect 2 director Elizabeth Banks during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week. And while it wasn't the nicest thing for the Hunger Games star to say--she did so without missing a beat.

Banks was talking about catching her big break, back in her early days of acting. The 41-year-clearly caught it, and is now making her foray into directing, too.

"There was a group of us girls coming up," Banks told The Hollywood Reporter. "A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not. I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn't all make it. We're not all still here."

Then she topped off her Tara Reid diss with, "I do love Sharknado."

Ouch.

And ouch again.

Tara Reid is about to star in Sharknado 3, where another actress who never hit it big like Elizabeth Banks, is set to play her mother. Bo Derek of 10 fame--and only 10 fame--is now destined to end her acting days in a Sharknado movie.

On the upside, Tara Reid just learned the 'art of doing a cameo' in a class with Stan Lee. Might that thrust her into the ranks of actors like Elizabeth Banks?

Tara Reid hasn't yet publicly commented on Elizabeth Banks's diss. It's pretty unlikely that she will. After all, what could she possibly say aside from the fact that the comment was rude?

It was, sadly, spot on.

Are you a Tara Reid fan? Will you be catching Sharknado 3 this summer? Or are you more inclined to check out Elizabeth Banks in her directorial role when Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters next month?
