Banks ‘pokes fun at JLaw’

Elizabeth Banks says she makes fun of Jennifer Lawrence because “she can handle it”.

The actress co-stars with Jennifer in The Hunger Games trilogy, and was on set with her when the Oscar nominations were announced.

The young actress was nominated for American Hustle and Elizabeth said she handled all the subsequent teasing like a professional.

"I was on [the Mockingjay] set the Thursday she was nominated," she told E! News.

"We all kid with her more than anything. A lot of poking fun at her. She can handle it, which is a lovely quality of hers."

While Elizabeth won’t admit what the craziest thing is she has ever seen Jennifer do, she does confess it’s something hilarious.

The Pitch Perfect star says the 23-year-old is quite a rabble-rouser and keeps everyone entertained with her antics on set.

"I could never repeat the craziest," she said. "She'd get in a lot of trouble. We don't give away all of our set secrets.”

Elizabeth goes on to reveal Jennifer is incredibly down-to-earth and easy-going. According to Elizabeth, with Jennifer what you see is really what you get.

“She is exactly what people hope that she is, which is really fun, easy-going gal you'd want to hang out with. You definitely want to have a beer with her," she laughed.
