Elizabeth Banks Vaultyour #1 fansite for actress Elizabeth Banks

Elizabeth Banks, who ditches her Hunger Games/Effie Trinket look to play a very tan former stripper in this month’s Magic Mike XXL (oh wait, and who also directed this summer’s hit Pitch Perfect 2 and stars in the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy), offers her outdoor party must-haves. Let the real Hunger Games begin.

What’s your ideal summer meal?
I mostly would cook, but if I could, I would serve food from some of my favorite places, too. My corn on the cob would be Café Habana for sure. It’s amazing. They have it here in Malibu, too. My drink would come from Lupa in New York: It’s whiskey, honey syrup, and mint, and it’s amazing. It’s very refreshing. Perfect for summer. I’d do fried chicken fromJCT Kitchen in Atlanta.

Did you eat that while shooting Hunger Games?
I have that every time I’m in Atlanta. They sell out of it. You have to have a dinner reservation before 8:30 or you’re not going to get the chicken. I’d get their fried chicken and all of the sides. And I’d want really yummy potatoes and cucumber from Wallse in New York.

Anything else? 
I would have watermelon WITH seeds. I think they taste a lot better. It’s sweeter, and it’s fun to spit the seeds out.

This is not a dream. Not even the rare rain on this drab spring afternoon is a mirage. California is dried out and this drizzle is a mockery to its emptied reservoirs. Seated outside despite the damp, on a picnic-style bench, wearing bright white like a dare to the dark sauce that drips intermittently from the hot meat to her white plate, Banks laughs loudly. Then, she stabs her fork at a still-sizzling hoecake served tableside in a cast-iron skillet, the sound of its popping buttery bubbles a counterpoint to the drip, drip, dripping water from the awning above. In this troublesome tableau, her impossible elegance is nearly Biblical; a miracle, really. She is beautiful despite all of it.

Who run the world? Pitch Perfect movies, it seems.

Coming off the success of Pitch Perfect 2—which has already grossed more than $161 million—Universal is moving full steam ahead, putting together the necessary puzzle pieces to create Pitch Perfect 3.

A source tells EW that Kay Cannon, who wrote the first two films, is in talks with Universal to return and pen the script for another sequel. No news yet on director Elizabeth Banks or the cast. Stay tuned.
