(Photos) Elizabeth for S/magazine Summer Issue  

Elizabeth is on the Summer issue of S/magazine, looking extremely gorgeous and showing off (once again) her bob cut. With the interview finally being released, I’m happy to say that outtakes have been added to our gallery! You’ll also be able to read the article below.

Authenticity, the unpretentious (even if conscious) ability to present an unvarnished image and likeness of oneself to the world, is one of the most appealing qualities of social media.

Especially for celebrities whose command over their public image has been greatly usurped by tabloid journalism and incessant paparazzi, social media may present an advantageous opportunity to win back a sense of ownership over their narratives while also expressing their individual truths. At the same time, however, these public displays of a more candid nature can become a perfect means of commodification, their naturalism a salable asset in a market that favours honest interactions.

Elizabeth Olsen, speaking over Zoom from Los Angeles, confirms that her short stint on Instagram was, by most measures, a business endeavour. “I’m not going to be coy about it: you try social media as an actor because there’s a financial gain—that’s why we are on these platforms,” she admits with tongue firmly planted in cheek. “I don’t feel comfortable selling things but thought I might as well give it a go. It didn’t make me feel great, even if it was something I believed in. I don’t think of myself as a salesperson or a personality, so it didn’t really suit me.” Where most Hollywood celebrities are steadfast in crafting an identity that juggles candor and commerce for the world to witness, it is refreshing to see an individual with such well-established cultural cachet recognize that this balancing act is more tedious than edifying.

But before quitting Instagram altogether, the actor admits, she may have discovered the raison d’être for her online presence. “I think I found my niche during the pandemic, at the beginning, before I deleted it, which was my gardening videos,” she reveals. “I was like, if I were to present myself as anything, it would be the wacky lady that I am, who just shows people things that they don’t care about at all!”

Olsen’s ascent in Hollywood was a gradual process that drew on her educational discipline. Besides attending New York University’s famed Tisch School of the Arts, which counts Academy Award winners Chloé Zhao and Lady Gaga as alumnae, Olsen also spent a semester training at the Moscow Art Theatre School, where she honed her craft as an expressive storyteller. From there, the actor scored her first role in the indie film Martha Marcy May Marlene, a complex thriller that paints a harrowing portrait of a young woman’s psychological disillusionment after escaping a cult.

The enchanting Elizabeth Olsen  

Continuing our new photoshoots and magazine spreads updates, Lizzie is featured on the Harper’s Bazaar UK digital edition for May! Our gallery has been updated with the beautiful photoshoot and magazine cover, and you can read the article below. The magazine has also shared some cute snippets from behind the scenes of the photoshoot, which you can view on their website here. Enjoy the gorgeous new photos!

Elizabeth Olsen is ready for me. In a cosy room of a London hotel, she gets up from her chair to greet me, refreshingly bright-eyed for a Monday morning. She introduces herself warmly as “Lizzie” and asks if I want anything to drink. It’s immediately clear that there aren’t many parallels between her and her antiheroine alias, the Scarlet Witch (also known as Wanda). For one thing, Olsen is very funny; she’s also supremely likeable. But she does hold herself with a certain soft power, today dressed in a grey Barbara Bui suit, an acid-pink knitted rollneck and chunky black lace-up shoes from Clergerie.

“I love playing characters whose actions people disagree with,” she says, tucking her cropped blonde hair behind her ears. “In a world where we don’t really care to understand other points of view, I feel like if we as an audience can have empathy for people we don’t agree with, that’s a good thing.” One of the most powerful figures in the Marvel Universe, Wanda straddles the morally dubious line between good and evil, and this is what interests Olsen about her; the characters she is most drawn to are the complex, knotty ones that need untangling. “Then I can kind of be their lawyer and defend them. I get behind their actions, even if I don’t agree with them,” she explains. She has recently wrapped an HBO series called Love and Death, which follows the true story of Candy Montgomery, who murdered a woman with an axe and acted as though it didn’t happen. “I adored playing her,” she says. “People would ask: ‘Are you going to play her as a sociopath?’ And I was like, ‘No, why would I do that? I’m going to try and understand how someone would be able to compartmentalise this until they were caught.”

However, in her latest film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Olsen reveals that Wanda has found some kind of resolve, no longer overwhelmed by the strength of her powers of chaos magic, or the trauma she suffers in Avengers: Endgame following the death of her husband, Vision. “It was so fun for me because all these years I’ve been playing a character who is struggling; now, she has clarity for the first time – she knows exactly what she wants, and she doesn’t want to apologise for it,” she says, adding, “I think there’s a womanliness that comes with that: a strength in feeling completely entitled.”

A benefit to being part of the Multiverse was working with Benedict Cumberbatch, an opportunity she very much relished. “I’m such a fan of his. He’s one of the greatest actors around right now and I wanted to see his process. I hope to work with him in a non-Marvel way as well, because I would like to have another, more heady experience with him.” It’s likely they’ll encounter each other within the Marvel Universe again too, because although she hadn’t anticipated working on this many Marvel projects, she says, “I think Wanda’s always around the corner, so I don’t feel bad saying goodbye to her.”

(Photos) The Marvelous Mrs. Elizabeth Olsen  

After a lot of fingers crossed and wishful thinking, we’ve got a new Elizabeth photoshoot! For the Summer issue of C magazine, Elizabeth speaks with the publication about her interests and ambitions beyond the Marvel multiverse. Our gallery’s been updated with the cover and outtakes from the session, and you can read the full article below!

001.jpg002.jpg004.jpg008.jpg

You think you know Elizabeth Olsen. A fixed star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The younger sister of the identical uber-celebrities Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Heart-stoppingly beautiful on any red carpet, charmingly relatable on any talk show, about as close to a natural-born celebrity as you can get, having made her screen debut at age 5 in the Olsen TV movie, How the West Was Fun.

And yet nothing about Elizabeth Olsen is quite as you expect. A few minutes into a conversation that was supposed to have something to do with the new Doctor Strange movie in which she stars, we have somehow moved on to the evils of pesticides and the importance of cover crops. Yes, Hollywood is all very well, but Olsen still dreams of studying agriculture and starting a progressive farmstead.

“You know, monocrop culture is so damaging to the planet,” she says. She has been inspired by the “closed ecosystem” they’ve got going at the forward-thinking Hanzell Vineyards near her home in Sonoma. “They incorporate so many different kinds of crops in order to feed the people who work there, but also to encourage the proper kind of nutrients for the soil.” This stands in marked contrast to the miles and miles of single-crop fields that line so many Californian freeways, where all life is exterminated to make one thing grow. “I just think it is really wild that we keep thinking we need to become vegetarians and vegans to save the planet. But, like, really the best thing to save the planet is biodiversity.”

I didn’t expect to be talking about the perils of Big Ag quite so soon into our conversation — and neither, I suspect, did Olsen, who suddenly cuts herself short, wary of being cast as some sort of pollinator spokeswoman. “You can’t say too much about anything anymore because then you become part of a platitude that you never signed up for, you know?” But a fear of monoculture becomes a running theme. Why concentrate on one thing to the exclusion of all else? Why do we expect everyone to be the same?

Elizabeth Olsen on the “WandaVision” fan theory that she’d love to make it canon  

As you know, Elizabeth is currently promoting Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and while speaking with The Independent she spoke about a specific WandaVision fan theory that she wanted Marvel bosses to make it canon. You can read the full article below!

Elizabeth Olsen has said that a WandaVision fan theory impressed her so much she wanted Marvel bosses to make it canon.

The actor played her Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) character, Wanda Maximoff, alongside Paul Bettany in the TV show, which was reeleased on Disney Plus in January 2021.

Across its nine episodes, the series delivered twists and turns that kept viewers guessing and intensely theorising about what would happen.

In a new interview with The Independent, Olsen said she followed along with these theories online, and revealed there was one she wishes Marvel bosses could have retroactively tweaked the show to include.

“I love fan theories ‘cause I always think they’re very clever,” she said. When asked if there was a particular one she enjoyed, Olsen stated: “There are usually ones where I’m like, ‘S***, we should have done that!”

Olsen, who stars in the Doctor Strange sequel, then shared one such WandaVision theory, saying that she enjoyed it so much, she thought it “could have been cool” to go back and make it a part of the series.

“There was one where they thought we were bringing in the Multiverse with the Pietro character, with Evan [Peters],” she said. “The sad thing is, when we were doing WandaVision before Covid, that was not part of the docket yet, and then it kind of overlapped when we finished the show. So we could have actually gone back and fixed or adjusted that.”

She added: “I thought that could have been cool to make Pietro a part of the Multiverse.”

The Multiverse will be explored in Olsen’s new film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which she stars in alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. The film is released in the UK on 5 May and in the US on 6 May.

We’re less than two months away from Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, and that means soon enough we’ll be having daily doses of Elizabeth (as she’ll be promoting the film). In the meantime, Doctor Strange has scored their first magazine cover – for the May issue of Empire UK! In the issue, which you’ll be able to find by clicking on the link below, we get to learn a bit more about the movie and Wanda. Speaking of Wanda, the publication released last week an article on her powers, that you can read below.

001.jpg005.jpg006.jpg002.jpg

If you want to start an argument in a comic book shop, kick off a discussion about who’s more powerful than who in a superhero smackdown. Is Hulk stronger than The Thing? Could Shang-Chi beat up Captain America? And could Ant-Man really have ruptured Thanos from the inside? As we prepare for the release of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, there are plenty of discussions to be had about who’s the strongest magic user in the MCU – sure, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange is on his way to become the Sorcerer Supreme (as we learned in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Wong holds that title for now), but Wanda Maximoff almost single-handedly ended Thanos in Endgame, and is about to become even more powered-up having embraced her inner Scarlet Witch in WandaVision.

With Elizabeth Olsen’s sorceress about to play a major role in Multiverse Of Madness, we’ll be seeing an ever greater display of her powers – and by the sounds of things, we might get answers on whether she’s really more powerful than Strange. “I don’t know who’s more powerful than Wanda,” says Multiverse Of Madness producer Richie Palmer. “Meeting the Wanda Maximoff at the end of Endgame would have been a lot for Strange. Who comes out on top as the most powerful being in the universe? Maybe we find out at the end of the movie.”

As Palmer hints there, the paths of Strange and Maximoff have barely crossed in the MCU so far – save for the battle in Endgame, and both attending Tony Stark’s funeral. But for each of them, Multiverse Of Madness should provide some serious personal challenges – particularly since Wanda gained possession of the Darkhold in the final scenes of WandaVision. “Madness has many different definitions,” says Palmer. “It’s maddening for Doctor Strange to have to watch the love of his life marry someone else. And it’s maddening for Wanda to have been told, ‘There’s a book, and there’s a chapter about you in that book you should read, and secrets you don’t know about yourself.’” For Olsen, the film finally offered her a chance to share proper scenes with Cumberbatch for the first time. “I really was excited to do dialogue with him,” she says. “I really enjoyed our constant conversation, of analysis and trying to understand where both characters are coming from.” Let the battle begin.

(Photos) How Elizabeth Olsen Brought Marvel From Mainstream to Prestige  

Elizabeth is on the cover of the August 19th issue of Backstage, where she speaks about working on WandaVision, her break out project Martha Marcy May Marlene and her career up until she reached the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Our gallery’s been updated with outtakes from the session, and you can read the full interview below!

001.jpg001.jpg002.jpg003.jpg

Elizabeth Olsen grins widely over video chat when recalling many such moments on set with her co-stars. Yet, she can’t bring herself to divorce such a lofty vision of film acting from the technical multitasking it requires. The camera sees all.

“But then you move your hair, and you’re in your brain, like: OK, remember that! Because I don’t want to edit myself out of a shot. I know some actors are like, ‘Continuity, shmontinuity!’ But the good thing about continuity is, if you remember it, you’re actually providing yourself with more options for the edit.”

That need to balance being both inside the scene and outside of it, fully living it and yet constantly visualizing it on a screen, feels particularly apt in light of Olsen’s most recent project, “WandaVision.”

The Disney+ miniseries, which racked up 23 Emmy nominations—including one for Olsen in the outstanding lead actress in a limited or anthology series or movie category—is rooted in the magical possibilities of living your life as if it were being screened for someone else to watch. Playfully paying homage to TV classics like “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “Bewitched,” and “I Love Lucy,” the buzzy Marvel series set in the small town of Westview imagines what various quaint sitcoms starring Wanda Maximoff (Olsen), her beloved, Vision (Paul Bettany), and a requisite pesky next-door neighbor named Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) would look like.

The mysteries at the heart of the show grow with every episode, each fast-forwarding to a different decade: Could this 1950s, black-and-white, “filmed in front of a studio audience” newlyweds bit be a grief-stricken dream? Might this ’70s spoof be a powerful spell gone awry? Could this meta take on mockumentary comedies be proof that the multiverse is finally coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Elizabeth Olsen reacts to Emmy nominations  

Following up the recent news, Elizabeth has reacted to her Emmy nominations during a short talk with Variety. Other actors to react to their nominations were MJ Rodriguez, Kate Winslet, Emma Corrin, Cynthia Erivo, Kaley Cuoco, Kathryn Hahn, Paul Bettany and more.

Elizabeth Olsen
Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (“WandaVision”)

I’m just really proud of us! It was a crazy show, and I’m sure everyone feels that way at the end of every job. We had a great time together making our show, and for it to even have had the response that it had was enough, and then to be recognized on this level is very surprising and exciting.

For Marvel to enter television by creating a love song to television just felt perfect. It was so challenging but such a joy, it was really one of the most fun jobs I’ve ever had because of these sitcoms through the decades. It made me realize, “Oh maybe I should be a sitcom actor, what am I doing with all these dramas?”

Elizabeth covers Glamour UK April Issue  

Elizabeth is on the cover of Glamour UK’s April digital issue, looking beautiful in pink! During the interview Elizabeth spoke about WandaVision, social media, what her siblings have taught her and what female power means to her. You’ll also be able to find photos in our gallery, and a fun video she did for the publication below.

001.jpg001.jpg002.jpg001.jpg

Winding down quintessential English country lanes to the GLAMOUR April digital cover shoot – the first IRL in over a year – with Elizabeth Olsen, superstar of WandaVision, there is a palpable sense of excitement in the air. The theme of this issue is ‘fresh start’ and despite the onset drizzle, one can feel the sense of optimism and hope as the UK starts to open up for spring after our long, long winter of lockdown.

Elizabeth has been living in leafy Richmond [she ‘loves’ it] with her musician fiancé Robbie Arnett since October, while filming another Marvel franchise, Dr Strange 2, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. “It’s a bonkers movie, they’re definitely going for that horror show vibe,” she tells me.

She’s especially looking forward to her local Petersham Nurseries restaurant opening up again, but today she is being photographed in the beautiful grounds of a 17th century mill house in Surrey. Her appearance in a patterned fuchsia Schiaparelli trouser suit and magenta tie-dyed Christian Dior denim corduroy suit against the backdrop of the English country garden is almost as marvellously incongruous as her portrayal of Wandavision’s suburban ‘housewife’ Wanda Maximoff’s use of magic to make plates fly across the kitchen or rustle up three-course dinners at the click of a finger.

(Photos) Elizabeth Olsen’s 20/20 Vision  

Elizabeth recently sat down with Grazia for a fun photoshoot and interview, in which she speaks about her career, WandaVision, and her lockdown experience in London. Our gallery’s been updated with a few outtakes released from the photoshoot!

001.jpg003.jpg005.jpg006.jpg

Elizabeth Olsen is a trooper. We are in a field in Surrey on the outskirts of the Marvel studios; it’s a biting minus one and she is standing in a Chanel broderie anglaise sundress and increasingly soggy UGG boots. Her feline cheekbones face skywards, but Olsen is slowly sinking into the mud, trilling out high notes to keep herself warm (possibly distracted) and of course with spirits high. “It was the wind I think, that was worse than the sideways rain,” she jokes as we trundle back to the soundstage hangar that we are using as a studio. It’s the kind of moment that could go viral on Instagram, that is, if Olsen were on social media. Yet one of the biggest stars of our current cultural moment is completely offline – and that surprising fact might just be the least interesting thing about her. If anything, it is a sign of how Olsen has come into her own as a confident, decisive star with the power to create her own universe.

On the cusp of her 32nd birthday, Olsen is fastidious and professional, yes, but also bright, engaging, creative, and collaborative. Born and raised in the California sunshine, she is surprisingly at ease in the blustery conditions that deluge the English countryside in late January – or, it’s that she’s very good at acting. “It was one of the ugliest days of this winter – just hilarious – but I knew we wanted the shot,” the 31-year-old actress says.

Since October, Olsen’s been living in the leafy British countryside with her “man-guy-partner,” musician Robbie Arnett, just a short drive to the Surrey compound where Doctor Strange is being filmed. It’s a closed set, masked in secrecy as much as the socially distanced masked crew dotted all over the 200-acre studio. “It feels right being in a small city right now,” she says.

Of course, more than ever, it feels right being an Avenger. Olsen will be reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff (nom de plume Scarlet Witch) in Doctor Strange, following the rampant success of Marvel’s current miniseries (and first foray into television) WandaVision, starring Olsen and Paul Bettany. Olsen has been part of the Marvel cinematic universe (and one of the most successful film franchises of the last decade) since 2014 when she cameoed in Captain America. Bridging nostalgia and action, the buzz of WandaVision is global: from critics to comic book fans, and almost everyone else. It is arguably one of the most meta screen offerings in a long time, arriving on our screens in television’s Renaissance.

(Photos) Elizabeth Olsen Is Ready to Lead the MCU  

While promoting WandaVision, Elizabeth spoke with Elle USA about the show and Wanda’s future in the MCU. Of course, we were also blessed with a beautiful photoshoot that you can view in our gallery. You can read the full interview below (and under the cut)!

003.jpg006.jpg007.jpg009.jpg

We can’t keep meeting Elizabeth Olsen like this. By “this,” I mean in the throes of catastrophe or bereavement, or, to put it plainly, when she’s an emotional wreck. In the 2018 Facebook Watch drama Sorry For Your Loss, Olsen assumes the role of Leigh Shaw, a young widow grappling with the unexpected loss of her husband and all the painful nuisances that come with death: the unbearable waves of sadness, the clichéd condolences, a grief support group that runs out of donuts. At one point, Leigh says through a cracked voice, “I’m just mad all the time.” It’s hard not to draw parallels to Olsen’s other angry character. After all, “mad” is exactly how 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron introduced us to Wanda Maximoff.

Defined by tragedy since her Marvel debut, Wanda (aka the Scarlet Witch) is an orphan with telekinetic powers. When not saving the world, she spends most of her time onscreen grieving the deaths of her parents, twin brother, or lover. Wanda’s never been allowed to fully exist outside the confines of her grief and anger, but with the launch of WandaVision—Marvel’s foray into serialized content for streaming—she may just be getting the happy ending she deserves.

Partly inspired by The Vision comic book, which follows synthezoid superhero Vision and his family as they move to the suburbs of Washington, D.C., the Disney+ series is an ode to the TV sitcoms we’ve come to love, with Wanda and Vision (Paul Bettany) basking in newlywed bliss—except Vision’s been very dead (killed twice, in fact) since the events of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. It’s unclear exactly how these starcrossed characters got to suburbia, but for now, it’s a delight to see the typically solemn duo sink their teeth into slapstick comedy.
