If you are a true fan of this actress you may know that her birth name is Elizabeth Irene Mitchell. However, she decided to change her family name to Banks to avoid being confused with another actress of the same name, Elizabeth Mitchell, who you may know from television series V and Revolution, or Snow Queen in Once Upon A Time. Elizabeth Banks net worth started to grow in the late 1990sm as she started filming for movies. Her first memorable role was in Spider Man. In this superhero film the actress portrayed Elizabeth “Betty” Brant, a supporting character. Although Spider Man experienced an amazing commercial success and became the first film to pass the $100 million mark in a single weekend, it did not significantly increase Elizabeth Banks net worth: as a supporting actress, she has received only a modest salary.
Following this the actress has featured in a number of memorable movies. For example, she featured in Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can, which earned slightly above $30 million in 3,225 theatres during its opening weekend and went on to gross a worldwide total of $352.1 million. She has also portrayed one of the central characters, Laura Bush, in biographical drama film loosely based on the life and presidency of George W. Bush, titled W. Although the movie was not particularly successful commercially (with a budget of $25.1 million and grossed $25,534,493 in North America plus $3,401,242 internationally) and received mixed reviews, it definitely increased Elizabeth’s fortune.
Just recently the actress has directed a movie Perfect Pitch 2. When telling how she and her husband decided it is worth working on the first part of this film the actress has said: “the way my husband tells it is he thought it was such a fun, sort of niche world where people are completely self-serious about something that’s sort of ridiculous because making music with your mouth is a particularly nerdy thing to do. It’s a really nerdy side of singing.” Who knows, perhaps in the future directing will become the main source of Elizabeth Banks net worth?
