Elizabeth Banks talks Lego love

Elizabeth Banks has revealed her character Wildstyle in The Lego Movie teaches audiences a valuable lesson in love.

The Hunger Games star voices the feisty Lego lady with pink and blue streaks in her hair, who is dating Lego Batman.

Elizabeth told Digital Spy: "Wildstyle is actually an homage to '80s hip-hop and she's a little lost. She can't quite figure out her place in the world."

She continued: "She wants to feel special, she's not quite sure she ever will, and that's one of the great messages of the movie - that you don't have to do anything great and huge to feel special.

"She's in a bad relationship, too. She's dating Batman in the movie, and he treats her like junk. He's totally narcissistic and as Oprah says, 'When you know better, you need to do better', and she figures that out in the movie."

The Lego Movie is out in cinemas now.
