She’s Anything But Uninvited Into Hollywood’s Spotlight

Elizabeth Banks

Since her performances in last fall’s W and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, I think it’s safe to say now that Elizabeth Banks (C’96) has finally arrived on Hollywood’s “A” list.

Over the past 2 months, Liz has been up to so much lately that I figured I would consolidate much into this one post:

1) She announced the Golden Globe nominations on NBC with Brooke Shields, Terrence Howard and Rainn Wilson. She also was a presenter at the actual Golden Globes ceremony.

2) L’Oréal hired Liz as a spokesperson for the company for allegedly $1 million!

3) Today Liz stars in The Uninvited, a new horror flick that is similar in nature to The Ring. (check out the video below for a preview and an interview with Liz)

4) This year look out for her to appear on Scrubs and in the movie The Surrogates (which she is also producing with her husband Max Handelman (C’95) and Penn alum producer Todd Lieberman (C’95)!)
