Don't be fooled by the blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. Funny girl Elizabeth Banks has beauty, brains and a great sense of humor. After graduating Magna cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania, Elizabeth went on to attend the Advanced Training Program at the prestigious American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. She then moved to New York, worked in theater and even obtained some small on-screen roles. Hungry for more screen work, Elizabeth moved to Los Angeles where she changed her name from Elizabeth Mitchell to Elizabeth Banks.
Supporting roles soon came as she landed parts in films like Spider-Man, Catch Me If You Can and Sea Biscuit. Before long, Elizabeth had proven she has the talent to become a true leading lady. She has starred in a number of films including Zac and Miri Make a Porno, W., Role Models and The Univited. Along with acting, Elizabeth runs the production company called Brownstone with her husband of 6 years. We expect great things from Elizabeth in the future!
Elizabeth was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority at the University of Pennsylvania.
She enjoys playing "Fantasy Football."
She converted to Judaism after marrying her husband in 2003.
