Elizabeth Banks opens up about her sexuality — fictional and otherwise — in a revealing new interview with The Advocate.

The actress notes that she’s never played a lesbian on-screen, but posits that her Hunger Games character, the flamboyant Effie Trinket, “might be gay.”

“My vision of the Capitol [in the film series] is pansexual like ancient Rome, where everybody’s doing everybody,” says Banks.

The movie star, who confesses she’s “definitely made out with a few girls in my time,” is open to having a same-sex love interest in a future project, and the magazine asks for her ideal on-screen partner.

Angelina Jolie is always super-hot and Christina Hendricks is pretty ridiculous,” says Banks, “but I think I would have a lot of fun with Emma Stone.”

Of course, Banks has already shared a few steamy kisses with women in films like Wet Hot American Summer, and was memorably topless with Madonna in Guy Ritchie’s Swept Away.

“It was pretty great,” she tells the magazine. “I recall at one point she was tossing pieces of prosciutto at my bare chest to see if they would stick.”
