For the longest time, anytime I saw the Hunger Games trailers I thought Effie Trinket was played by Bette Midler. It was just the way she looked, talked and dressed. Yeah, I know, the actress looks younger than Ms. Midler but like I said, she just reminded me so much of her.
I saw the movie and frankly she still reminds me of her.
The other day we saw the trailer for Catching Fire and there's a moment where I had to remind myself, again, that it is not Bette Midler but rather Elizabeth Banks. I think it's the hair, makeup and clothing, in addition to just the way she talks and her mannerisms.
