Banks struggles to juggle it all

Elizabeth Banks has admitted she not coping "that well" balancing her work with being a new mother.

But the 37-year-old Spider-Man star, whose son Felix was born in March, is busy promoting her new film Our Idiot Brother and isn't planning to slow down her career.

Elizabeth told People: "I'm not really a break-taker. I'll just keep on going, and then we'll see. You do it. You push through just like any other working mom."

She added: "I don't want to say I take it day by day, but I pretty much take it month by month. My life is now in monthly increments."

Elizabeth is busy working on highly anticipated action thriller The Hunger Games and comedy What to Expect When You're Expecting, but she admits Felix is always on her mind.

She said: "The thing about motherhood is it's a full-time job and everything else gets piled onto it.

"I don't think I ever really understood that until it came into my life. You put so much of your brain energy, and your emotional and psychological energy into, 'Where is he? What is he doing?' that it's almost hard to concentrate on anything else."
