Elizabeth Banks: "Flaunt"

Sneak Peek new images of Emmy-nominated actress ("30 Rock") and "Pitch Perfect 2" director Elizabeth Banks in "...a sexy and surreal" fashion spread, photographed by Hunter & Gatti for "Flaunt" magazine:

"People treat comedy like it's some frilly, unsubstantial thing," said Banks. "But we're bringing fucking joy! 

"We're spreading joy 24/7!'...there is some skill behind what I'm doing..."

Banks made her film debut in the indie feature "Surrender Dorothy" (1998), followed by roles in director Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy (2002–2007), followed by the "40-Year-Old Virgin" (2005)...

Also in 2015, Banks portrayed 'Melinda Ledbetter Wilson' in director Bill Pohlad's "Beach Boys" bio, "Love & Mercy".
