Elizabeth Banks compares Twilight and Hunger Games

Elizabeth Banks has given a recent interview to and she talks about her inspiration for playing Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games and the differences between Twilight and Hunger Games.


When talking about the inspiration, she credits Rosalind Russell from 1958 comedy ‘Auntie Mame’.  She says, ““She’s one of my favourite actresses and that is one of my favourite performances. I also rewatched The Philadelphia Story because I like to remind myself of the pacing of these older films and that helped me find Effie’s voice. I knew that I wanted this kind of theatricality and the sound of the movies from the 40s but it took a few takes to feel like I was really living in her voice. The director [Gary Ross] was very patient with me.”

She also talks about the differences between Twilight and Hunger Games, saying, “I understand why people make the comparisons because there’s a female protagonist and two guys, but they are also very different. Although the Twilight films are fun to watch I don’t know what they are saying about life generally.  They are almost so fantastical that I’m not sure what you hold on to other than the love story. Whereas The Hunger Games is about so many things.  It says something about society.”
