Having a laugh: Elizabeth Banks, 46, joked that her overstuffed tummy was the result of voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, plus eating ‘a ton of tagliatelle and then ice cream’
‘So many people asking how this happened so I wanted to officially share the news that it all started when I voted for @joebiden and @kamalaharris then ate a ton of tagliatelle and then ice cream,’ she joked.
The Wet Hot American Summer star also added the hashtags ‘#vote,’ ‘#feelsgood,’ ‘#pastababy’ and ‘#itiswhatitis.’
In her photo, Elizabeth highlighted her clear skin and wore a white ribbed cropped tank top and a pair of black and white striped pants while cradling her tummy with one hand and smiling for the camera.
Though she made light of her fake baby bump, Elizabeth opened up back in November about feeling ‘judged’ for using a surrogate to deliver her two sons, Felix, nine, and Magnus, seven, whom she shares with her husband Max Handelman, 47.
The actress told Porter magazine that she used a surrogate due to fertility issues.
‘I definitely think I’m still judged for what I’ve done and that people don’t understand my choices, but I don’t feel I owe anybody any explanation. And if my story helps people feel less alone on their journey, then I’m grateful for that,’ she said.

After establishing herself as an in-demand actress, Elizabeth has recently expanded into writing and directing her own films.
She directed Pitch Perfect 2 (2015), which she also appeared in, and most recently she wrote and directed the Charlie’s Angels reboot from last year.
Her next big acting project will be in the upcoming Johnnie Cochran biopic Signal Hill, which stars The Avengers’ Anthony Mackie as Cochran and Jamie Foxx as Black Panther leader Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt.
Elizabeth was cast as the journalist Mary Neiswender, who investigated the case of a black man who allegedly hanged himself in jail over his distress at getting a speeding ticket.
Cochran had the man’s body exhumed, and a second autopsy indicated that he had been strangled, resulting in a million-dollar settlement for his family.
