Face Off: Elizabeth Banks vs. Kristen Bell

May. 13, 2013by: Droz

Oh goody, goody! Lot's of conflicted thoughts about our previous Face Off between Natalie Portman and Amy Adams. I like it when ya'll are so divided. In the end, Natalie managed to scrape out an extra couple votes to win by a nose, but I'm pretty sure the love for these two is equally balanced.

Most everyone was honoring their moms this weekend, which gives us a good opportunity to honor a pair of new moms by comparing them to one another. Both these ladies have had new bundles of joy recently. Elizabeth Banks welcomed a new boy late last year and Kristen Bell did the same just a few weeks ago with a new daughter. Now we got to decide which of these two new moms is the hotter MILF. So who you got? Answer below.

Beauty

I don't have a problem with Elizabeth's looks. She's plenty cute, even beautiful. The fact that she's second here is due mostly to my love for Kristen's sweet little face. Not to be a dick, but many a beautiful hottie would find themselves taking the silver trophy next to Kristen in the beauty department. So no reason to feel bad too for Liz then. Besides, I'm sure there are a few of you who will disagree with me here.

I remember feeling rather conflicted, even disbelieving about Jason Siegel's character in FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL when he so quickly moves on from Kristen's character in that movie. Sure, the alternative was Mila Kunis, but I still would have required a lot more suffering time before I managed to push Kristen's sweet face out of my mind. Even if it was Mila helping me push her out.

Body

Remember that scene in WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER when the girls strip down and do that semi-skinny dip scene while the guys watch them from the trees? I don't think I'll ever forget the part when Elizabeth pulls her shorts off and that lovely, full ass just spreads out in those little rainbow panties. Damn. That movie is funny as shit, with a ton of memorable scenes. Yet whenever I think about it, it's Elizabeth's beautiful, curvy body that comes to mind. Years and years later, she's still got that hot body. I hope it never goes away.

Kristen is no slouch in the body department either. If I have any problem with her at all here (which I don't, really) it's that I like me a curvier body and Kristen's a bit more trim than I usually like. Given the choice between Kristen's trimmer body and Liz's curvy one, I gotta go with the curvy.

Hotness

Being in a Kevin Smith movie doesn't necessarily void Elizabeth from geekdom membership. However, hers was the porn tribute Kevin Smith movie, which puts a different take on her. There's just something about Elizabeth that hits that hotness tuning fork in my brain. I think it comes back to those lovely curves. She's rocking some serious hourglass goodness under them clothes. Hanging around playing video games and watching movies would not suffice for Liz. Somewhere along the line, I'd have to make my move there. Then a few minutes later, slapped and shoved out the door for my trouble. I'm such a glass half full guy, aren't I?

I don't know, I think that whole geek girl thing Kristen has going on did something different for me than it has for others. Rather than being turned on by girls who subscribe to geekiness, I'm normally just fond of them - kind of like a good friend who just so happens to be smoking hot. Finding out that a hottie likes to sit around and play XBox or watch STAR WARS, makes me want to sit and play Xbox or watch STAR WARS with them. It's the ones who are way far beyond my grasp and completely outside my sphere of understanding that earn my obsession. Just one of the many ways I like to torture myself.

Career

I'm not going to say that everything Elizabeth has done was my very favorite, but there are more things in her CV that show up in my favorites list - things like Modern Family, 30 Rock, Scrubs, The SPIDERMAN movies, ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO, etc. She's doing something similar to Kristen in that she's just skirting the outside of my sphere of media appreciation. The difference is that she occasionally penetrates that sphere a little deeper than Kristen does. Mmmm, penetrate. See, now I'm thinking of her ass again.

Kristen has ridden the outskirts of movies and shows I like, but she's not done a whole lot of stuff as a central player that interests me much. Her most well known things like Veronica Mars or Gossip Girl are nothing I've even the least little bit of an interest in. That really sucks because I like what she brings to those shows and movies that I have seen her in. It's another one of those situations where I hope she does something more my speed so I can appreciate her even more than I already do.

Elizabeth

I hate to rule against Kristen in anything, but I have no choice. The check marks fall where they like in this thing. It just so happens that Elizabeth gets the win this time around. Things might have gone differently if Kristen and I weren't so far apart on the worthiness of her acting gigs, but I regret nothing. Elizabeth is one fine hottie I'd be more than happy to have as my own.

Anyway, that's what I think. What's your take?

Definitely Banks

Elizabeth banks all the way. I would have even given her beauty. Bell has that typical Hollywood, plasticy, fake, Barbie doll look I don't like. Elizabeth on the other hand, more natural, unorthodox beaut that I love.

Kristen Bell, easily.

Sure she might be a bit skinnier but I don't see how you award Hotness to Banks over Bell, especially with that "just woke up" pic of Banks you used.

Elizabeth wins easily,.

The cross-eyed girl gets the win on beauty???? I've never even remotely thought Kristen Bell was even attractive, let alone beautiful or hot. And the good movies she's been in, like Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Fanboys, she's usually the least impressive thing in the movie, and the parts could easily be played better by lots of other actresses.

Kristen

This is the most difficult choice I have seen in one of these in... well... ever. They're both awesome, hot, funny. But I would have to give the edge to Kristen in all catagories except career.

Banks

Liz is just my kind of beautiful. I do like Bell but every time I see Banks I just think (and scream) WOW. Plus if this is a showdown of new MILFs banks takes it here easy, I just feel Kristin will always be that hot geek next door not the MILF Liz is (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Tough one again.

Elizabeth Banks for me.

You should had included the clip from "Meet Bill". Something else i like about Elizabeth is she seems like she would be a freak in the bed. There is something in her eyes that scream.. you think I am crazy now, wait until we get into the bedroom.

Another tough one but Kirsten Bell edges it slightly for me

just on pure looks. However, it's a whisker since I wouldn't say no to Elizabeth either. She really caught my eye in THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN and I've liked her in everything she's done since. And her involvement in THE HUNGER GAMES (nailed the character in that one) is a big plus in the Career category.

Damn, now you got me reconsidering my vote. Curse you, Droz!!!!

Kristen Bell for me!

They are both really attractive, funny, and great actresses, but there is just something about Kristen Bell that I can't keep my eyes off of her when she's on screen and I'm just not the same way with Elizabet Banks. So, yeah, it's Kristen Bell for me all the way on this one.

Kristen Bell is "prettier" but Elizabeth Banks is money in the spank bank. I liked her in Spider Man, but Loved her in Zack and Miri, This is such a close one. Kristen Bell is so beautiful. But Banks has a sexiness about her.

Kristen Bell.

Kristen Bell is leagues ahead Banks, she is so much hotter, and I don't see how there can be any doubt that Kristen Bell has the better career, that's not really subjective, they have both been in the same amount of things, but Kristen's roles have been bigger. The roles Kristen always gets are always flattering to her looks, but Banks seems to often get roles that aren't always the most complementing to her looks, in my opinion. So maybe that's why I see Kristen as way hotter.

Kristen Bell in her pink bikini in 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' will forever be among my fondest movie memories.

But I gotta go with the multi-talented, funny and gorgeous Elizabeth Banks.

Don't take this the wrong way, I like Kristen a lot - she's smart and funny as hell, and certainly attractive, but she is not very pretty. She looks like she could be one of the Buseys. That's really not meant to come off as an insult, despite how it sounds. I'm just trying to lay down a basis for why I think Elizabeth Banks is easily prettier than Kristen Bell.
Anyway, I like Elizabeth's slightly dirtier - yet - earthier personality. She wins for me.

I wouldn't give career to Banks, all of her bigger / more succesfull projects (movies or TV) have one thing in common -> she was barely in them. Not saying Bell is moving from one big hit to the next, but at least she's a pretty consistent lead in everything she does.

Somehow, I find Banks to be a bland beauty. Obviously she's beautiful, but she's kinda generic.
