Banks will be taking to the stage at the DNC on Tuesday evening, when Hillary Clinton will formally receive the nomination to represent the Democrats in the race for the White House. Banks is serving as the host for the night, introducing the night’s theme – Fights of her Life: Kids and Families – following a speech by Sen. Chuck Schumer.  While doing her run through on the DNC stage, Banks looked effortlessly stylish in a flowing printed number.

Banks was an early celebrity Clinton supporter. Talking about her support for the former Secretary of State, Banks explained why she’s “with her.”

“I think we’ve been waiting for the right candidate. I think we have that candidate in Hillary Clinton. I don’t think anyone has run for the White House who is more qualified than Hillary. I really believe that Hillary Clinton has made the world ready for Hillary Clinton,” Banks told Variety.

Banks went on to expound upon the historic aspect of Clinton’s candidacy and what it means for women.

“We are half the population and we do matter. People are figuring that out. We have a long way to go. We are up against thousands and thousands of years of patriarchy. I don’t think a change is happening overnight. Hillary is a great step in the right direction,” Banks said. “I have two small children. I think about them having only lived in a world where a black man and a woman ran our country. It gives me great hope for the future of our country.”

Though Banks is both a successful actress and director, she still apparently suffers from a bit of stage fright. Earlier today, the Hunger Games star revealed that she’s a bit wary of live TV.

“Getting ready for @DemConvention Live TV is scary. I need gummy worms. #DemsInPhilly,” she captioned an amusing Snapchat edit.
