Elizabeth Banks Covers 'Marie Claire @ Work' May 2013

Elizabeth Banks is ready for the day on the cover of Marie Claire @ Work‘s May 2013 issue, on newsstands April 16.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On female-focused movies: “I try not to say, ‘Yeah, Bridesmaids opened the door to make more movies about women.’ I mean, did it? I don’t know, where are they?”

On how she manages her hectic schedule: “First of all, I have a home office. I have two kids, and it means I get to put them down for their naps and be the person they wake up to. When I’m actressing, which is my day job, and which I’m doing right now, I leave the house at 4:30 in the morning five days a week and I get home at 6, and hope to get two hours with them before they go to bed. So I’m slightly miserable about that.”

On producing movies: “It’s all about managing people. You know, women in Hollywood, we don’t get action franchises and superheroes. The rom-coms that made Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, and Reese Witherspoon stars are out of favor right now—nobody is making them. In this business, if you are an ambitious person, you don’t wait for people to hand you opportunities. You have to make a way for yourself.”
