UNIVERSAL CITY, California — Forget “The Hunger Games.” Elizabeth Banks was left parched after the sexy “Magic Mike” cast handed her the Best On-Screen Transformation award at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
The actress nabbed the award for her role as District 12’s persnickety mentor Effie Trinket — a role that required her to don three separate wigs , a closet full of couture outfits and a pair of forest-like fake eye lashes.
Though she was honored by the award, Banks had only one thing on her mind when MTV News’ Josh Horowitz asked for her reaction to the statuette. “I’m a little parched, yeah. I need some water!” Banks exclaimed with a laugh. Perhaps it wasn’t just the win that had her dry-mouthed, but Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello, who presented her with the Golden Popcorn.
“Honestly, thank God I had those guys up there so I could make a little bit of it. I just wanted to have fun with it,” she said.
Unfortunately, Banks remembered that she forgot to thank one important group. “I didn’t thank the fans,” Banks said. “See, you just reminded me. I forgot to thank the fans. It’s all about the fans. Oh, well. Thank you fans!”
Jaw-dropping, heart-pounding, gut-busting moments galore. See what just happened at the 21st annual MTV Movie Awards!
