Elizabeth Banks — Hotter Than EverSeptember 23, 2015
It seems Elizabeth Banks is getting better with age!
The smoking hot actress put her Wet Hot American Summer co-stars to shame while shooting the Netflix prequel series. Dish Nation has exclusively learned she needed little to no time in the make-up chair to look like a teenager again!
“Her body was amazing, her face barely had a wrinkle and quite honestly she looked as good as she did when she filmed the movie back in 2001,” an onset source dished.
And at 41-years-old and a mother of two, that’s no easy feat.
“Everyone was clamoring to find out her secret,” the insider said. “She just insisted it was good genes.”
Elizabeth reprised her role as sexy Lindsay for the series and fans were shocked when the show exposed her as an undercover reporter from Rock & Roll World magazine who only posed as a 16-year-old to write an article about being a teen at camp Firewood.
She was 27-years-old when she shot the original movie and now 14 years later, she can still pull it off.
In First Day of Camp her other co-stars, including Paul Rudd, 46, Amy Poehler, 43, and Bradley Cooper, 40 — play their characters, eight weeks younger while being a decade-and-a-half older in real life.
“They all looked pretty good, there’s no denying it. But she was an absolute stand out,” the source added.
“There was even a time when the cast were joking that she should have some fine lines added so they wouldn’t look so old standing next to her.”
In her own admission Elizabeth said when it came to shooting the series “it was like no time went by at all” and “we slipped right back into it.”
“They’ve all held onto their sense of humor. So it was a really fun set to work on,” the insider concluded. “At times it kind of was like working with a bunch of teenagers!”
Elizabeth was the first celebrity guest star on the season premiere of ABC’s The Muppets on Tuesday night.
