Elizabeth Banks learns to balance motherhood and acting

Elizabeth is balancing baby and work

New mom Elizabeth Banks admits that it’s a tough road trying to balance being a mother and her fairly busy acting career saying that it’s “not that well,” but it’s not going to discourage the actress from pushing forward in her career.

While promoting her latest movie, ‘Our Idiot Brother’, Banks said that she’s not going to be taking time off.  She said;

“I’m not really a break-taker.  I’ll just keep on going, and then we’ll see. You do it. You push through just like any other working mom. I don’t want to say I take it day by day, but I pretty much take it month by month. My life is now in monthly increments.”

Although Elizabeth may not be planning on taking a break from acting, she says she fully understands why other actresses who have children do take some time off.  Banks explains;

“The thing about motherhood is it’s a full-time job and everything else gets piled onto it. I don’t think I ever really understood that until it came into my life. You put so much of your brain energy, and your emotional and psychological energy into, ‘Where is he? What is he doing?’ that it’s almost hard to concentrate on anything else.”

While it’s nice for moms to take some time off to be with their children, there’s something to be said for the moms that continue to work and be true to their passions, showing that having a baby doesn’t have to stop you from doing what you love.
