Elizabeth Banks speaks motherhood and her career in Marie Claire’s Work issue. The Surrender Dorothy star is in wraps of her new movie ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’. she rocks the cover for the Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton photo shoot. Banks speaks out about everything from being a working mom to approaching a new role.
“First of all, I have a home office,” the 39-year-old actress explained. “I have two kids, and it means I get to put them down for their naps and be the person they wake up to.”
While continuing to discuss her career, Miss Banks added,
“When I’m actressing, which is my day job, and which I’m doing right now, I leave the house at 4:30 in the morning five days a week and I get home at 6, and hope to get two hours with them [her children] before they go to bed. So I’m slightly miserable about that.”
In regards to taking on new characters, Elizabeth revealed,
”I try not to repeat myself too often. Because it’s a gamble. ‘Fred Claus’ had three Oscar winners in it. No business – it was a bad movie. So people ask, ‘How do you plan it?’ Nobody is planning anything. People make decisions on where they are right then. Sometimes you make a decision because the character just speaks to you in a way.”Photo Credit: Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton for Marie Claire!
