Recalling her early career in movie, she revealed she forgot to put on a bikini when the casting director required those who audition to strip down.
Elizabeth Banks is desperate to get her hands on an embarrassing casting photo from early on in her career - because it features the actress posing in a padded bra and old underwear. The "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" star got her start acting in commercials, and admits it was one of the most humiliating experiences of her life.
One audition went horribly wrong when she failed to bring a bikini to a body-baring photoshoot â�� and was forced to strip down to her "granny panties". And Banks fears the unflattering snap will one day come back to haunt her - if she doesn't locate it and destroy the evidence first.
She says, "You have to check your dignity at the door for sure (for commercials)... I remember going to a commercial audition for Bud Light or something and I get there and they go, 'All the girls are in bikinis. We're going to take Polaroids of you in a bikini'."
"A Polaroid is already not very flattering and I did not have a bikini that day so for me to stay in the running for the commercial I had to strip down to a really ugly padded bra and granny panties. And there's a Polaroid of me in granny panties. It exists somewhere. It was really humiliating."
