INTERVIEW: Elizabeth Banks talks about meeting Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence for the first time

Our lovely Effie, Elizabeth Banks, revealed to E! Online at the Maui Film Festival that she has finally met with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire director, Francis Lawrence. Read how it went according to Elizabeth herself below.

"Let me tell you what's fun—to have the job before the director!" Banks told me at the Maui Film Festival, where she was honored with this year's Navigator Award.
"That has never happened ever in my life," she said. 
She added with a big laugh, "Going into that meeting, I was like, 'I have the job. You tell me what you're going to do, buddy—cause I'm already in this hit movie.'" 
Banks and Lawrence met for coffee. "We talked about where the movie is going," she said. "It was great." No, she's not spilling on any specifics. 
Banks is, no surprise, looking forward to playing Effie again. "I love being with Woody [Harrelson] and Lenny [Kravitz]," she said. "That's who I get to pal around with." 
And we love hearing that HG's three breakout stars, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, haven't let success go to their heads. "They're all so real," Banks said.
And so beautiful, too—especially the Aussie hunk of the bunch. "Liam is ridiculously good-looking," Banks gushed. "I mean, ridiculous."
