Elizabeth Banks might be an actress but she looks more like a model in a photo shoot and cover for Marie Claire’s May 2013 issue.
The actress admitted to the magazine that it can be tough being a working actress and a mom. She explained, “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.”
She continued, “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.”
Banks also discussed how she chooses her roles. “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.”
