Elizabeth Banks has portrayed an amateur porn star, first lady Laura Bush and, in The Uninvited a"creepy psycho," as the actress herself describes it.
Earlier this week, she spoke about the latter role with MovieFone:
Q: Your role in The Uninvited was kind of a change of pace for you. Why did you choose it?
A: Pretty much for that exact reason -- I wanted to play the creepy psycho. I have this thing about when people tell me I can't do something, and I really felt like I needed to do it. And this was one of those things where most people involved -- except for the directors, who always knew that I could do it -- had to be convinced that it was something I could do. I kept getting told, 'She's the smiley one from The 40-Year-Old Virgin' [laughs].
