Not like I faint, every time we touch.
I know. Shocking. There are many, many women I think very highly of, which I have posted about before (ahem, here for example thank you very much) and which I am poised to do again this evening. From early on, I have found Elizabeth Banks not only charming, but a smart and talented actress that can dead pan six ways from Sunday without skipping a beat.
Ok, technically one of those words is a number, but let’s not get into the weeds on semantics. I have been following her crazy awesome career the way I do with Melissa McCarthy, another incredible actress that toes the line, being feminine and charming while also not being afraid to challenge those stereotypes for the sake of real comedy. Her stint in Bridesmaids, for example, doesn’t even need further development: if you’ve seen it, you know what I’m talking about.
After watching The Hunger Games for the zillionth time recently, I realized not only do I respect her talent as an actress, I would love to go have a drink with her. She’s clever. She’s smart. She’s funny. For goodness sakes, she actually made me want to not hate Effie Trinket (is that the name, so many people come and go/die in that series).
All in all, she’s my new “wish she was my gal-pal” of the moment. I won’t lie, the top spot will always be for Milla a la Resident Evil, but Elizabeth (who, Be Tee Dubs, I appreciate doesn’t go by Beth, way to challenge the status quo) Banks is definitely in the running. Heck, let’s just drop another picture of her in this blog post shall we?
Elizabeth, if you’re out there and want a coffee, it’s my treat. Until next time, stay classy Salt Lake!
