Elizabeth Banks: I wear a very short skirt. Today, fans of Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade‘s finally learned the reason for his odd obsession with the critically-panned Christmas movie Fred Claus. And it was not the holiday spirit–or spirits.
This morning, Brian and his co-hosts, Alisyn Camerota and Steve Doocy, interviewed actress Elizabeth Banks as she promoted her new film People Like Us. As the segment drew to a close, Aly asked, “You know what Brian’s favorite movie is?” With the hint of a smile, Banks answered, “I heard it’s Fred Claus.”
Grinning sheepishly, Brian interjected, “It’s Fred Claus! It’s the best movie ever. You were genius in it!” After chuckling heartily, she replied, “Well, I wear a very short dress. Thank you for noticing.” As Brian laughed, a smiling Aly nodded her head knowingly and pointed accusingly at him. Turning to Brian, Steve aptly jested, “Oh, no wonder! Fred who?”
