Elizabeth Banks Couldn't Go to the Bathroom With Hunger Games Nails
Getting cast in the year's most anticipated movie, The Hunger Games, is a dream for any actress, but transforming into the character? Not so much, especially for Elizabeth Banks who plays eccentric adviser Effie Trinket in the film.
"The nails [are] the worst part," the 38-year-old star said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday of Trinket's "completely impractical" bejeweled talons. "You can't undo a button. I couldn't use my Blackberry."
But texting was the least of Banks' concerns while in costume: "The biggest problem was I couldn't go to the bathroom. I had like ladies in waiting," she said.
An amused DeGeneres then asked, "Wait, you couldn't go to the bathroom so you had ladies in waiting? Someone had to go with you to the bathroom?"
"Yeah, they would hand me the toilet paper," the actress explained. "They would have to unzip. The other thing is, I'm in a skirt you would think you could hike it up, but no. They were too tight. I couldn't get them over these thighs. They all had to go down and up and unzip and button. I had these under garments holding it all together and very constricting. Good times, good times."
