Elizabeth Banks: What she took from set (Effie shoes!) & the trend of strong female heroines

Effie-Stylin-in-13

Elizabeth Banks chatted with Marie Claire about her involvment with Thank List, and had a chance to talk a bit about working on The Hunger Games franchise and what she took from set when she finished filming.

Switching gears to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which will come out in November. It was the last film where you got to play Effie. Did you take anything as a souvenir?

“I have a pair of Alexander McQueen shoes that are amazing, that are like really classically Alexander McQueen, too. You would know them on site, like ‘Oh yeah, that’s them.’ So I love that. But really, I just took, like, more confidence in my dressing. Do you know what I mean? Like, ‘Why am I wearing this Monique Lhuillier today?’ Probably because of Effie. I would just be wearing a black dress otherwise.”

Yes, she is definitely a character who is not afraid of color.

“She really taught me a lot about my body and what looks good on me and dressing for fun. All of it was such an amazing collaboration. I mean, we created a little fashion icon. It was very much a collaborative, creative experience that I’m not probably soon to have again.”

Who is your favorite Hunger Games character, personally?

“Well, Katniss is my favorite. Katniss first, then Effie second. But yes, Katniss, of course, she’s the moral center and the heart and the soul of the whole series and she kicks ass and so as a woman audience member, as a reader, as a mother, I’m just so thrilled to see that character succeed.”

It seems like that were kind of in this upswing in Hollywood in regards to these badass heroines.

“I think we’re in a really great time right now. There were articles in The New York Times and Varietyabout how the big blockbusters have some real competition from some movies that were really made for the ‘ladies,’ which I think is really interesting.”

When looking at these two very different movies, what’s been your favorite scene to film?

“Effie is amazing but it’s not particularly fun to play her. It’s very uncomfortable to film that character and they’re pretty dark films, the subject matter is intense, and so the word ‘fun’ is not one I easily associate with the shooting of those movies. I had a lot of fun off the set with the cast and crew. Pitch Perfect 2, those scenes are super fun. It’s just me and John Michael Higgins, and we’ve been friends for so long we just have the best time. Anything I do with him is some of my favorite stuff.”
