“That has never happened ever in my life,” she said.
She added with a big laugh, “Going into that meeting, I was like, ‘I have the job. You tell me what you’re going to do, buddy—cause I’m already in this hit movie.’”
Banks and Lawrence met for coffee. “We talked about where the movie is going,” she said. “It was great.” No, she’s not spilling on any specifics.
Elizabeth is also excited to get back on set and work with her Hunger Games co-stars
“I love being with Woody [Harrelson] and Lenny [Kravitz],” she said. “That’s who I get to pal around with.”
And we love hearing that HG‘s three breakout stars, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, haven’t let success go to their heads. “They’re all so real,” Banks said.
And so beautiful, too—especially the Aussie hunk of the bunch. “Liam is ridiculously good-looking,” Banks gushed. “I mean, ridiculous.”
