Elizabeth Banks: Effie Trinket's Costume Was Impractical

Elizabeth Banks drops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on an episode airing Wednesday (March 21).

The 38-year-old actress, who plays Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games, chatted about some of the hassles of wearing such an elaborate costume in the movie.

“The nails [were] the worst part….You can’t undo a button. They are really cool – completely impractical! I don’t understand how anyone can use those. I couldn’t use my BlackBerry. Mostly the biggest problem was I couldn’t go to the bathroom. I had like ladies in waiting…”

Ellen also gifted Elizabeth with a unique pair of gloves to wear in the next films in the franchise!

    Watched the midnight screening last night/this morning and Elizabeth was brilliant as Effie. The whole cast was superb.
