No junk food? No problem.
That seems to be the case with Elizabeth Banks, 39, who manages her eating habits like a pro, telling Women's Health, simply, "People ask me how I stay thin, and I'm like, 'When you go to the grocery store, buy more bananas than cookies.' "
And when she does splurge on sweet treats, "[The freezer] is where my Girl Scout cookies are," she shares, adding that the prime location allows her to forget about them – instead of eating them.

Mindy Kaling is one confident lady!
The poised star of The Mindy Project looked pretty in pink on Wednesday as she stood in front a huge room full of people and admitted, "I love praise."
Conducting the opening statements at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Women in Entertainment breakfast, which honored Diane Keaton, Kaling said praising the Academy Award-winning actress "is enjoyable because she is so self-deprecating. She literally invented the art of gracefully deflecting praise. I could learn something from her."

Peeta blazed the trail, and now it's catching fire.
Following in the footsteps of their Hunger Games costar Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks ditched the dystopian universe for some time with dolphins.
During three separate visits to Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium last month, the actors, in town filming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, were treated to exclusive meet-and-greets with marine mammals.
On Oct. 14, Lawrence donned a wetsuit to swim with whale sharks, manta rays and zebra sharks at the Journey with Gentle Giants exhibit. While she was instructed not to touch the creatures, she swam the perimeter and got up close and personal with several whale sharks.

Elizabeth Banks made a new pal recently.
The Hunger Games star met Andrew Garfield when she attended KCRW radio's intimate Regina Spektor show at a private venue in Los Angeles.
"Elizabeth introduced herself to Andrew at the end of the show," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They shook hands and talked for a bit."
According to the observer, the two stars were delights to have on the premises.
"There were some young girls in the audience and a couple of them went up to Andrew to say hi, and he was incredibly sweet to them," the source says. "Elizabeth was sweet, too. She met [two young girls] and couldn't have been nicer."
