Working moms balance life better than working dads: Banks

Los Angeles: `Hunger Games` star Elizabeth Banks admits it is hard to manage acting career, marriage and family around her.

The 40-year-old actress said working fathers do not undergo such pressure to balance everything around them, reportedly.

"I balance it by always putting my children`s health and safety first. Then I feel OK to go and do the job I love. It`s important to remember that I face the same challenges as many other working parents out there.

"I don`t think dads do it as well as moms, quite frankly, as I don`t think there`s any pressure on them to balance anything in their lives when it comes to parents being at work. I try not to feel that pressure, either," she said.

Banks is also no longer concerned about her beauty and credits her genes for it. "I didn`t quite believe I was pretty for a long time. I never thought about it. I`m very genetically blessed, I cannot deny it. But I work hard at keeping myself together. Yes, I have nice cheekbones and skinny legs but I can`t take any credit for it."
