Elizabeth Banks Says She Feels "Judged" For Having Kids Through Surrogacy

Elizabeth Banks doesn't owe anyone anything, especially when it comes to her family planning decisions.

Speaking with Porter, the actress-writer-producer-director extraordinaire opened up about the backlash she's received for using a surrogate to conceive her sons Felix, 8, and Magnus, 9, with whom she shares with husband of 27 years Max Handelman. Telling the outlet that her "broken belly" left the couple with no other options, Banks said that she still feels judgement to this day—even amidst all of the progress our society has made. 

"Women's reproductive issues were things you would whisper about in small circles," she explained. "[Now] there's #ShoutYourAbortion and IVF Facebook groups. I definitely think I'm still judged for what I've done and that people don't understand my choices, but I don't feel I owe anybody any explanation. And, if my story helps people feel less alone on their journey, then I'm grateful for that."

After welcoming Felix in 2011, Banks got candid about her fertility struggles and how using a surrogate helped give her and her husband a miracle.

 "I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally," she said at the time. "The one true hurdle I've faced in life is that I have a broken belly. After years of trying to get pregnant, exploring the range of fertility treatments, all unsuccessful, our journey led us to gestational surrogacy: we make a 'baby cake' and bake it in another woman's 'oven.'"

"Felix means 'happy' and 'lucky' in Latin," Banks continue. "And true to his name, Felix is a very happy baby and a blessing on our life."

Switching gears, the Hunger Games alum also discussed her recent film Charlie's Angels and her vision for the reboot's storyline. After recalling her mother's work ethic and the values she was taught, she said that she really wanted the film's core to be about working women.

 "I told the studio and my collaborators: ‘I want to make a movie about women working," she told the outlet. "And I do not want to tell a story about the boyfriend they don't see enough, or the mother they don't call enough, or the cat they don't feed.' Those are ridiculous tropes in women's movies, and you do not see James Bond worrying about calling his f**king mother."

Regardless of its box office numbers, Banks said that she hopes Charlie's Angels will empower women and "have them see themselves in a movie, which happens far too infrequently, especially in the action genre."

You go, girl!

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss Welcomes Baby No. 3 Via Surrogate

Welcome to the world! Kandi Burruss’ surrogate gave birth to her third child on Friday, November 22.

“She’s here! Blaze Tucker born at 6:54 p.m. on 11-22-19 weighing 8 lbs, 1 oz,” a text message the reality star sent to her fans reads. “I’m so thankful to add another healthy, beautiful, baby girl to the family!”

After The Shade Room shared the exciting news, Burruss added, “We’re so in love!”

In September, Bravo broke the news that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 43, and her husband, Todd Tucker, were expecting a child via gestational carrier. This news came three years after the couple welcomed son Ace, 3. He joined the reality star’s 17-year-old daughter, Riley, she shares with ex-boyfriend Russell Spencer, as well as Tucker’s daughter, Kaela, from a previous relationship.

Burruss told Us Weekly exclusively about their surrogacy plans in November 2018. “We did find someone, and right now we are in the process — you know it hasn’t been done — but we’re in the process,” the Bravo personality explained at the time. “We have two embryos that are still left from when we had Ace. So, we have two embryos left and we know they’re girls.”

The Georgia native admitted that she was “nervous” and “kind of scared,” adding, “I don’t have anybody who can tell me [about it]. When we were going through the IVF process, I did have a couple of friends who had done it, so, you know, I could talk to them, but this is a situation where I don’t have anybody I can talk to.”

But five months later, the former Xscape member spoke to Busy Philipps about the surrogacy advice Andy Cohen gave her once his son, Benjamin, arrived.

“I had made a comment. I said something like, ‘I guess I’m gonna have a baby mama,’” Burruss said on Busy Tonight. “And he said to me, ‘Don’t you ever say that because you are the mother. And to say she’s your baby’s mom is taking away from you.’ It made me feel better. At the time I didn’t know that he was doing [surrogacy] too. And then when he announced it, he hit me up immediately and said, ‘Now you see why I felt so strongly.’”
