Elizabeth Banks Covers 'Allure' June 2012

Elizabeth Banks graces the cover of Allure‘s June 2012 issue, hitting newsstands May 22.

Here’s what the 38-year-old actress had to share:

On surrogacy:Alec Baldwin asked me straight up – I had made a comment about wearing a fake belly, something innocuous and he looked me straight in the eye and asked me, ‘Are you pregnant right now?’ And I blanked totally. Because of course, technically, no I wasn’t. But then, technically, yes, in a way I was! And it was very weird. I thought Alec was reading my mind or something. Well we weren’t telling anyone then, so I said ‘No,’ I thought, is that a lie? Because it wasn’t a lie, and yet it was a lie! Its essentially a test tube baby”its just the test tube is another woman. That you can grow a baby outside of yourself! Its amazing!”

On her role in What To Expect When You’re Expecting: “I did it for my fellow females. I thought I was standing up for all the women who have crazy horrible pregnancies – you know, there’s all these things we’re not allowed to talk about in public.”

On her weight: “It’s not good to put in a magazine what I weigh because its too little. People freak out when they hear what I weigh. They think, Oh, you’re too skinny. But I ate a cupcake last night – and I eat broccoli. I work out with a trainer; she kicks my ass.”

    I applaud her for being honest and open about this and not wearing a fake belly like Beyonce, and lying about it constantly. Sending good wishes to the new mommy and daddy to be. All the best with the little one :) A good relationship is the one that’s started with honesty. They’re good rolemodels for their baby.

    What’s with the copy editing today. First there was the misidentification of Heidi’s daughter. Now there’s this passage:

    “Its not good to put in a magazine what I weigh because its too little.”

    Properly punctuated, it should read:

    “It’s not good to put in a magazine what I weigh because it’s too little.”

    Other than that, keep up the good work. Love your site.

    I really like her. And she is so pretty.

  • jasmine

    LOL — she weighs too little — she’s not that skinny…

  • loverducky

    Did she seriously just say that about her weight? First of all, why would you being telling a magazine, or anyone else what you weigh, do you think they really care..or want a shock?..and secondly, unless her weight is completely off base with what she looks like, then I doubt there is anything that could be too shocking. Very unappealing comments in my opinion. I tend to like her, but this is off putting.

    No perspective.
