Ellen DeGeneres promotes Elizabeth Banks as the “electrifying Elizabeth Banks.” Not sure about that, but she sure is gorgeous, and talented, and… Maybe Ellen chose electrifying is because Banks seems to pop up everywhere pop culture has a power surge. Seems like if something is successful and popular — really, really popular — there’s a good chance Elizabeth Banks was in it. Heard of these? Seabiscuit, the Spider-Man trilogy, The Lego Movie, The Hunger Games, Scrubs, Modern Family, 30 Rock? What they all have in common is the electrifying Elizabeth Banks. Banks, despite her success, is sort of a quiet superstar — hey, just like electricity. Which can also, come to think of it, be beautiful. Who are we to doubt Ellen DeGeneres’s adjectives? Never again.
The electrifying (there!) Elizabeth Banks is currently promoting Pitch Perfect 2. (Pitch Perfect, btw, belongs in the list above!) Only Banks isn’t promoting the film as an actress — she directed Pitch Perfect 2 and is one of the producers. Not bad for a girl who barely graduated from — oh wait, sorry — for an Ivy Leaguer who graduated magna cum laude from The University of Pennsylvania. Okay, so the mother of two is electrifying. And Elizabeth Banks stands up to bullies, too.
