'Hunger Games' Red Carpet Premiere MTV Interview with Elizabeth Banks

‘Hunger Games’ Red Carpet Premiere MTV Interview with Elizabeth Banks

0 Comments March 13, 2012 by Filed Under: Elizabeth Banks, Hunger Games Premiere

Here is MTV‘s interview with Elizabeth Banks from the LA red carpet Hunger Games premiere last night!

“To me, the biggest star here is Suzanne Collins,” the actress and hard-core “Hunger Games” fan told MTV News about her feelings on the novel’s author. “She created this entire world, all of this pandemonium, all these characters. She birthed this whole situation. She couldn’t be a nicer lady. She’s the loveliest lady, and I’m a total geek around her. To me, she’s a total rock star.”

Just as many fans would kill for the chance to spend time with the “Hunger Games” cast, so too did Banks swoon over getting one-on-one time in with Collins.

“I’ve professed my love for her pretty much,” Banks laughed. “The books are done, and they’re the books, so she doesn’t need me to dissect them with her, but I’m very happy that she’s happy with the film. So to me, it was always about, ‘Let’s make director Gary Ross happy with the film, let’s make Suzanne happy. Everyone else, who cares.’ ”

Of course, Banks cares very much about the fans, a group she described as “unbelievable.”

“The passion of everyone here is crazy. It’s very exciting,” said Banks. “I’m very excited to see this movie with an audience. I saw it in a small room with two other people, so the energy in the room is going to be ballistically bananas. I brought tissues. It’s very emotional, this movie! I cried making it; It’s very emotional for me.”

Elizabeth Banks on the Message of 'The Hunger Games' and Being Effie

Elizabeth Banks on the Message of ‘The Hunger Games’ and Being Effie

3 Comments January 9, 2012 by Filed Under: Effie Trinket, Elizabeth Banks

 elizabeth banks effie trinket    Elizabeth Banks on the Message of The Hunger Games and Being Effie   Elizabeth Banks2 300x379The Huffington Post recently spoke with Elizabeth Banks about the message she feels The Hunger Games can bring to everyone worldwide. As well she talked about being Effie and the love-hate relationship between her character and Haymitch.

Do you feel there are any other important messages in the novels? Let us know in the comments!

As dystopian and fantastic as “The Hunger Games” is, it also seems fitting for our volatile world right now. Still, how do you make a movie for kids about kids killing kids?

“The Hunger Games” is so timely because it’s about the overthrow of a totalitarian society and I’m pretty sure that’s what’s happening worldwide right now. To me the message of “The Hunger Games” is that revolution can come from one person, an act of kindness by one person. I think it’s really important to tell kids that they matter, that individuals matter, and that everyone counts, and that to me is the message of “The Hunger Games.” That’s what I hope kids take away from it.

You transformed yourself completely to play Laura Bush in 2008′s “W,” and now you’re doing that again for Effie.

A fun part of being an actor and a chameleon is taking on those looks. Effie has a really theatrical, over-the-top, completely not me look to her. I’m very excited for people to see my portrayal. I have no idea if people are going to be into it. I hope they are. I know the filmmakers are and [the book's author] Suzanne Collins blessed everything we did. It was a really fun collaboration between myself and Academy Award-nominated hair and makeup and costume people.

I’m excited to see your interaction with Woody Harrelson as Haymitch.

I’m excited for people to see that too. Because we worked really hard — there was not a lot in the script interaction-wise and we made a lot out of that relationship. Our characters really don’t like each other. But we also have to work together, so it’s that push-pull. It’s like any great sort of love affair — there’s a lot of love-hate between us.

So many fans are so excited about it; do you feel pressure?

I really don’t. You just can’t. I really don’t want people to be disappointed — I’m a fan of the books myself, so of course I just want to be faithful and do right by her. But I loved Effie. I loved playing it, I loved how it came out, I’m really proud of it, so any of the haters, I’m just going to ignore.

Elizabeth Banks on Effie and The Hunger Games

1 Comment November 29, 2011 by Filed Under: Effie Trinket, Elizabeth Banks

 elizabeth banks effie trinket    Elizabeth Banks on Effie and The Hunger Games   hunger games effie trinket elizabeth banks 300x125EW caught up with Elizabeth Banks to talk about her upcoming work in Pitch Perfect and also how she came up with Effie’s accent in The Hunger Games.

Let’s talk Hunger Games: Where did you come up with Effie’s voice?
It’s a combination of The Philadelphia Story and Rosalind Russell in Auntie Mame.

Really?
Rosalind Russell is just amazing. It’s one of my favorite performances ever. I wanted Effie to be really theatrical. I just wanted to make sure she didn’t sound too British. She needed to be a little highfalutin.

Which fans are more intense: A cappella fans or Hunger Games fans?
I would bet there’s a ton of crossover.

Would Effie Trinkett have been in an a cappella group?
Sure. There might be a cappella groups in the Capitol. That’s probably allowed. I think the Capitol wouldn’t find that too threatening.

But not in District 12, right?
They probably do a little barbershop in District 12. They need something to keep their spirits up.

 elizabeth banks effie trinket    Peoples Exclusive: The Hunger Games and Elizbeth Banks on Effie   New Photos!   Effie and KatnissPeople not only has an exclusive interview with Elizabeth Banks, in which she talks about her character Effie Trinket, but also two new photos from The Hunger Games!

I would be in the hair and makeup trailer and I was Elizabeth, and then the wig went on and very suddenly I was Effie,” says Banks, 37. “Every day I would have that aha moment, like, ‘We did it! We found Effie!

“Effie is a very complicated woman,” says Banks, who previously worked with director Gary Ross on 2003′s Seabiscuit. “She’s a spinner. She spins everything into something positive. These kids have been pulled from their loved ones to compete on television in this horrible event in which they will likely lose their lives.”

“Effie,” she says, is “charged with making their last days before they’re in the Games as positive as possible, so that they go into the Games with a great attitude. And, of course, that seems crazy.”

“For sure the biggest challenge of playing Effie was the shoes!” says Banks. “All of my shoes in the movie are completely amazing but highly uncomfortable. I said to Gary, ‘You better be shooting these shoes, because they’re killing me.”
