Lucky's May Issue

ON OUR COVER Elizabeth Banks is rapidly ascending the ranks in Hollywood with comedy blockbusters like The 40 Year Old Virgin and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, yet the beautiful blonde is still amazingly and refreshingly down to earth. She showed up at our L.A. shoot cracking jokes despite a late night out at Oscar parties, and then revealed that she's happiest at her local mall. "The choices of stores are endless, and there's plenty of parking!" she says. "I can try on a bunch of stuff, leave what I like at the register, and then have a think over lunch. If I'm dreaming about it a few hours later, I pop back in and buy it."
