Banks Loves Circus Act
Actress ELIZABETH BANKS has a high-flying hobby - she's addicted to swinging on a trapeze.
The Spider-Man star loves performing the circus stunt in her spare time, and has mastered a series of impressive acrobatics.
And she likens swinging on the high bars to a drug, insisting it's easy to get hooked on the thrill.
The star's favourite move is the "split catch" - when the performer hangs upside down and does the splits in mid-air.
Banks tells USA Today newspaper, "The first time it's like no feeling in the world, like no drug. They say on the website you don't have to worry about being afraid of it, you have to worry about getting addicted."
But the actress admits there is a down side to swinging on a trapeze, adding: "My legs are banged up a bit, but it's ok. They're war wounds."
