Elizabeth Banks Talks Motherhood & Career in Marie Claire’s Work Issue

After wrapping up her anticipated flick “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” Elizabeth Banks rocked the cover of Marie Claire’s Career Supplement issue. While striking a few poses for the Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton photo shoot, the “Pitch Perfect” beauty opened up about everything from being a working mom to approaching a new role.

“First of all, I have a home office,” the 39-year-old actress explained. “I have two kids, and it means I get to put them down for their naps and be the person they wake up to.”

While continuing to discuss her career, Miss Banks added, “When I’m actressing, which is my day job, and which I’m doing right now, I leave the house at 4:30 in the morning five days a week and I get home at 6, and hope to get two hours with them [her children] before they go to bed. So I’m slightly miserable about that.”

In regards to taking on new characters, Elizabeth revealed, “I try not to repeat myself too often. Because it’s a gamble. ‘Fred Claus’ had three Oscar winners in it. No business – it was a bad movie. So people ask, ‘How do you plan it?’ Nobody is planning anything. People make decisions on where they are right then. Sometimes you make a decision because the character just speaks to you in a way.”
