In an interview with Metro, Elizabeth Banks gives fans an insight about her character in The Hunger Games movie.
There’s more to Effie than just being a pink-haired villain. As a career woman, she doesn’t have the best gig.
No, District 12 is terrible. To me, Effie drank the Kool-Aid. She’s onboard because she’s in the 1 percent and she doesn’t want to give that up. I think she thinks, “Revolution would be bad. People will die and I might lose my cupcakes.” She’s not one for change. She likes the status quo. I think she shows up in District 12 disgusted, thinks that it’s dirty, wants to go home as fast as possible. I think of PR people and stylists I’ve worked with who go, “Well, I’ll make the best of a bad situation,” you know? And I think that’s Effie. The main thing about Effie is she’s super-selfish. It’s all about her.
According to NameBerry, Rue and Cato are included in this year’s Hottest Baby Names. Rue, the tribute from District 11, is the character played by Amandla Stenberg. Cato, the Career tribute, is the character played by Alexander Ludwig.
Rue – Credit The Hunger Games, which has turned the spotlight on a range of exotic botanical names for girls, from the heroine’s name Katniss to gentle Primrose to Posy and Clove. But the hottest choice for babies, according to the Nameberry statistics, is sleek, simple, if somewhat mournfulRue, the name of the agile young girl who meets a tragic end in the series. In real life, however, we see Rue as having a bright future.
Hunger Games cast members Leven Rambin, Dayo Okeniyi and Willow Shields will be attending the OZ Comic-Con which will be held in Melbourne on June 30 – July 1, 2012.
