Elizabeth Banks gets mistaken for Chelsea Handler!

Elizabeth Banks + Chelsea Handler

Despite being a beautiful and talented actress, Elizabeth Banks apparently gets mistaken for Chelsea Handler on a regular basis, which I’m just going to read as “Elizabeth Banks wakes up every morning and pisses in the cornflakes of every man, woman and child in the U.S.”.

“I was sitting in Toronto and a guy walked up to me and said, ‘Oh my god, my girlfriend loves you. She would die if I didn’t get your autograph. This is so exciting!'” the Our Idiot Brother actress recalled. “He’s like, ‘I just love your books. I mean, My Horizontal Life….’ I was like, ‘Oh, he thinks he’s meeting Chelsea Handler.’ I couldn’t ruin it for him!”

“I was like, ‘It’s nice to meet you,'” Banks told the man, acting as Handler. “I was just hanging out, being Chelsea, drinking my vodka and having a good time. He couldn’t have been happier.” SOURCE

In case you’re wondering what you need to do in order to be mistaken as Chelsea Handler – aside from punching someone square in the dick until they go blind – all you have to do is say everything like you’re talking to someone on the other side of a long hallway and write books about your vagina in 40 point font. It’s just that easy.
