Elizabeth Banks and her husband try to sneak in some alone time whenever they can.

The 39-year-old actress has sons Felix, two and eight-month-old Magnus Mitchell with her spouse Max Hendelman and Elizabeth admitted they have to work hard on their marriage as the kids take up so much of their time.

She told Women's Health magazine: ''We'll be like, 'Let's ask the nanny to stay late so we can run out and have sushi by ourselves.' And we spend Sunday night curled up on the couch together, watching 'Game of Thrones' and 'Mad Men'.''

While Elizabeth adores her sons, she admitted she does find parenting exhausting because Magnus wakes up so early.

She said: ''Even though I have a baby that wakes up anywhere between 5:30 and 6:30 in the morning, I still cannot get myself to bed before, like, 1am every night. I am falling apart under the weight of lack of sleep.

''Sometimes I just think I can make this dinner, eat it, and clean it up, and I accomplished something. I nurtured my family and myself.''

Elizabeth also tries to stay in shape because she knows she will need all the energy she can to keep up with two active sons.

She explained: ''I have two boys; they're going to be physical. If I want to go skiing with them when they're teenagers, I have to stay fit.

''[On a recent vacation when I went tubing behind a speedboat] I was like, 'I'm way too old to be doing this!' but I thought, 'I don't want my kids thinking their mother wouldn't get out on a tube. Well, I nearly died. I did a full cartwheel in the air as I went into the water. But it was totally fun and worth it.''
