The iconic TV game show from the early 1980s Press Your Luck is back and with a gorgeous Hollywood actress as host – Elizabeth Banks. It’s a game of chance. Contestants press a button to spin and win cash and prizes but if they press the button and land on the Whammy (a devilish looking creature), they lose the round.
Banks says she’s hosting Press Your Luck because “I really love giving people money — that’s not mine!” On one episode, Banks says she saw a contestant win $60,000. “We’re changing people’s lives here,” she adds.
Two days before the premiere of Press Your Luck, the 45-year-old Ivy League grad (Penn, magna cum laude) shared a selfie to celebrate #GlobalWellnessDay. She showed off her superfit bikini body and a gold RESIST necklace (see pic above). Banks was a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 presidential campaign and was involved with other celebrities at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
Banks’ next big Hollywood project is the reboot of the Charlie’s Angels movie (2000) which she co-wrote and is directing. Naomi Scott (Aladdin), Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) and Ella Balinska (Hunted) star with Patrick Stewart as Bosley. Banks provides the voice of unseen boss Charlie. In theaters November 2019.
Press Your Luck airs Tuesdays at 10 pm on ABC, right after The Bachelorette.
