"I am so honored be the newest L'Oreal Paris spokesperson and to join such a distinguished group of women who proudly say the iconic phrase 'Because You're Worth It,'" states Banks. "What impresses me most about L'Oreal is the company's commitment to empowering women. L'Oreal wants women everywhere to not only take charge of their beauty, but to also take control of their health and well being."

"We are thrilled to welcome the beautiful and talented actress Elizabeth Banks to our L'Oreal Paris family of spokespeople," states Karen T. Fondu, president of the L'Oreal Paris division of L'Oreal USA, Inc. "Elizabeth is the newest addition to an amazing line up of exceptional women who all embody the values of L'Oreal. Elizabeth's talent and beauty is matched by her intelligence and approachability. She has a natural charm and an incredible ability to captivate an audience."

Elizabeth Banks is one of Hollywood's most sought after young actresses. This year Banks had four films in theatres "W," "Zach and Miri Make a Porno," "Role Models" and "Meet Dave." Slated for early 2009, Banks will star in "Uninvited" and "Lovely Still."

Banks can currently be seen as "First Lady Laura Bush" opposite Josh Brolin (as George W. Bush) in Oliver Stone's "W" and can also be seen starring opposite Seth Rogan in Kevin Smith's "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."
