L’Oreal And Elizabeth Banks: No Laughing Matter
If you pride yourself on staying up on your celebrity spokesperson news, then you may’ve heard that actress Elizabeth Banks will join the likes of Beyoncé and Eva Longoria-Parker as the new face of L’Oréal come next year. In an announcement made right before the weekend, WWD reported that the Zack and Miri Make a Porno star will begin appearing in TV and print ads for the cosmetics giant beginning this February in a multiyear deal estimated to be worth about $1 million a year. We find this information particularly interesting, because while Banks has had her fair share of “serious” acting parts, we know and love her mostly for her comedic work in films like Wet Hot American Summer—roles that don’t usually attract the attention of beauty industry bigwigs. Perhaps the higher-ups at L’Oréal loved her “you taste like barbecue sauce” scene with Paul Rudd just as much as we did? Another victory for funny ladies everywhere.
