Elizabeth Banks Dishes on Kissing Melissa McCarthy's Husband

Elizabeth Banks isn't afraid to kiss and tell! In the new issue of Women's Health the star of What to Expect When You're Expecting dishes about having to teach Melissa McCarthy's husband how to kiss for the camera.

In the upcoming romantic comedy, Banks and Ben Falcone (whom most audiences will remember as the U.S. Marshal that McCarthy flirts with in Bridesmaids) play one of the many highlighted expecting couples -- but the comedic actor had no experience smooching someone other than his Oscar-nominated wife for the screen.

"I had a great costar named Ben who had never done a kissing scene before, so I had to guide him very sillily through our kissing moment," Banks said. "He had a hard time touching me, and I literally had to take his hand and like put it in inappropriate places to get him used to the idea of touching me inappropriately."

Audiences will have to wait until May 18 to see if Banks, who turns 38 this week, and Falcone have believable chemistry. But first, fans will be lining up to watch her play the stylish Effie Trinket in highly anticipated film The Hunger Games.

"Effie Trinket was a really fun role to get ready for because so much of it was about her hair and her clothes and the way she talks and walks," Banks revealed in a behind-the-scenes video. "She is a very theatrical person. I watched a lot of Auntie Mame to prepare for playing Effie."
