Elizabeth Banks appears in a glowing light while making her entrance on stage at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday (July 26) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.
The Hunger Games mocked the way that Donald Trump walked on stage to accepted the Republican nomination last week with Queen‘s “We Are the Champions” playing in the background.
“I don’t usually say this about Donald Trump, but that was over the top,” Elizabeth said. “I confirmed it right now. The Trump campaign is so hard up for money, I just bought that fog machine on eBay for thirty bucks. I don’t feel good about it.”
During her speech, Elizabeth compared Trump to Effie Trinket, the character she planned in the dystopian franchise.
“Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket — a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia,” Elizabeth said. “So when I tuned in to Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey! That’s my act.’”

Tobey Maguire beats the summer heat by stepping out to grab coffee on Wednesday (June 22) in New York City.
In a recent interview with GlamourUK, Elizabeth Banks revealed that she auditioned for the role of Mary Jane in the original Spider-Man franchise, where Tobey played the superhero.
“I was told I was too old to play her,” Elizabeth told the magazine, according to Vanity Fair. “Tobey and I are basically the same age (at the time, she was 28 while Tobey was 27). I was like, ‘Oh, okay, that’s what I’ve signed up for.”
The role ultimately ended up going to a then 18-year-old Kirsten Dunst.
Despite not landing the original role she auditioned for, Elizabeth revealed that her “consolation prize” for being too old was receiving the role of newspaper secretary Betty Brant in the film.
