Couple of days ago, Elizabeth was a guest of Jimmy Kimmel. Enjoy 3 HQ stills and two videos I found on their youtube channel.
Elizabeth Banks has an enviable professional and personal life with herdirectorial debut hitting theaters on Friday and a 12-year-marriage with producer Max Handelman.
But the 41-year-old by no means always had it all planned out. In an interview for her June cover of Allure, which hits newsstands May 26, Banks recounted how she met her husband at the University of Pennsylvania.
“I didn’t meet my husband and think, I’ve met the man I’m going to marry,” she says in the interview. “I was like, He’s cute. I’ll f— him, because I’m 18 and in college.”
Elizabeth was a guest of Ellen to promote her new upcoming movies Pitch Perfect 2 and Magic Mike XXL. Enjoy caps from it and two videos of the interview.

LOS ANGELES — Everyone warned Elizabeth Banks against filming the outdoor concert finale for “Pitch Perfect 2.” It was June in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It was scorching hot, it was hurricane season, and they would have to build a full, functioning stage and recruit a small town of extras to make it believable.
But Banks knew what she wanted.
“I kept saying, ‘I don’t care, it’s going to look cool, we’ve got to do it’,” said the actress, producer, and now, feature director.
It took nearly a month to build the Glastonbury Festival-inspired stage. As for the extras, the production sent out an open invitation casting call to fans of “Pitch Perfect.”
Over 3,000 people showed up.
A couple of days ago Elizabeth was guest to Live with Kelly & Michael to promote Pitch Perfect 2. Thanks to my friend Stef I’ve got the video interview added to the site and caps from it. Take a look!

Elizabeth Banks joins TODAY to talk about “Pitch Perfect 2,” in which she plays an a cappella commentator. She also directed and produced the musical comedy sequel.
After producing the surprise smash original — and playing more than 70 different characters — the star of ‘Hunger Games’ now hungers for something else: a place among Hollywood’s most exclusive club — female directors. Says Banks: “This is the test. And I like to get A’s.”
The cast and crew of Pitch Perfect 2 are waiting to shoot a musical sequence in which Anna Kendrick and the rapper (once again) known as Snoop Dogg sing a Christmas duet. Except it’s July. And it’s Baton Rouge, Louisiana. And it’s 93 degrees. Kendrick’s makeup is melting off her face. Dogg is practically panting. A crewmember gives the ancient air-conditioner unit a whack, but it just keeps sputtering warm air.
