(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.

Elizabeth Olsen on Wanda Maximoff, method acting & social media  

In the most recent interview released by Bustle, Elizabeth opened up about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, her character Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, method acting, and who her alternate selves would be. You can read the full interview below.

It seems like everyone on the internet is debating the merits of Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness — if it was “good,” if director Sam Raimi broke free of Marvel’s gilded cage, if everyone should stop worrying and love the super-powered cinematic universe. Everyone, that is, except Elizabeth Olsen.

The 33-year-old actor, who stars as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in the new movie, is not on Instagram, or Twitter, or anything else for that matter. And she swears she’s not lurking, either: “My friends now know just to text me adorable photos of their children,” Olsen tells me. Like her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, she’s found she’s simply better off without digital detritus collecting in her brain. She craves real dialogue, she says, and didn’t find it with the take- and counter-take-having hordes.

Quite frankly, she isn’t finding it with me, either. To explain her dissatisfaction with online discourse, she points to the artificiality of our one-sided script — that of the celebrity interview, brokered by publicists to advertise a project. “I feel weird in this situation where I’m answering questions, and for me to ask you a question would take time out of your interview spot, when I would like to ask you about the loft space that it looks like you’re in, the plants that you have in the back,” Olsen says, referencing elements of my Zoom background. “I would just be more… But I can’t take up that time, because that’s not the point of this agreement,” she adds. In the Zoom chat, a message to me from the PR person: We are indeed running low on time.

Surely, somewhere, she’s getting the conversational stimulation she seeks — perhaps with her husband, the musician Robbie Arnett, whom she’s been particularly tight-lipped about. (Their marriage was only made public after Olsen referred to Arnett as her “husband” in a 2021 interview.) But us, the general public, the fans, the media? She knows better than to look for it here, but she’ll still happily hold up her end of the bargain, even if I don’t have time to tell her about my monstera.

Below, Olsen discusses who she might have been in an alternate universe, and why she definitely isn’t a method actor.

(Photos) How Elizabeth Olsen Came Into Her Powers  

Elizabeth recently spoke with The New York Times about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, her acting career, and her thoughts on a Wanda Maximoff solo movie. Our gallery’s been updated with outtakes from the photoshoot she did with the publication, and you can find the interview below.

001.jpg002.jpg003.jpg004.jpg

Elizabeth Olsen is used to waiting in the wings. When she was an acting student at New York University, she landed an understudy role in the Broadway play “Impressionism,” starring Jeremy Irons. The show ran for 56 performances. Olsen didn’t take the stage a single time.

That sort of lost opportunity could mess with an actress’s mind, but Olsen was never in any hurry to seize the spotlight. Years later, when she was cast as the reality-bending witch Wanda Maximoff in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” her character was more of an ancillary Avenger than the main event, and in three subsequent Marvel films — each with a more overstuffed ensemble of superheroes than the last — Olsen never rose higher than 10th billing.

But a funny thing happened after biding all of that time: “WandaVision,” a sitcom spoof about Wanda and her android husband, became an unexpected phenomenon when it made its debut early last year on Disney+. This month, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which counts Olsen as its co-lead and pits her troubled witch against Benedict Cumberbatch’s goateed sorcerer, has proved even more major. The movie collected $185 million in its first three days of release, ranking 11th among the biggest domestic opening weekends of all time.

For Olsen, who initially made her mark in independent films, this is the equivalent of turning a comic-book page to find yourself the subject of a massive splash panel. During a video call last week, I asked how it felt to come to the fore as a blockbuster leading lady.

“I’m totally mortified!” she said. “I won’t watch it.”

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.”

Elizabeth covers Glamour Mexico (May 2022)  

Lizzie is everywhere these days, currently gracing (at least) 4 magazine covers! One of these is the May issue of Glamour Mexico, which features a gorgeous new photoshoot and a lengthy interview. If you speak Spanish you can read the full interview over here. For those who do not, I’ve attached a translated interview below – however, keep in mind that this was done using an automatic software, so it will likely contain errors. I will try to get it properly translated and added to our press archives as soon as possible.

Our gallery has been updated with high quality digital scans of her cover, as well as the photoshoot outtakes. Make sure to pick up your own copy of the magazine if you have it in your area!

Talented, powerful and one of the most relevant actresses of the moment, Elizabeth Olsen is our cover star for May 2022.

Elizabeth Olsen has conquered us not only because of her multifaceted acting career, where she has given us incredible characters like The Scarlet Witch, but also because of her love of altruism, the planet and her great personality that has led her to steal the hearts of everyone; Therefore, this month we talk exclusively with her about her personal life, her dreams, her new projects and her best fashion and beauty tips.

This month we decided to recognize the Hollywood actress with two covers . The first reflects her personal essence, her love and her daily efforts for the planet and the second highlights her public face, the movie star and the importance of women on the screen.

Do you have a dream that you would like to fulfill in the future?
Yes I have a lot. I would love to manifest multiple paths in my life in the future. I don’t think that my life is necessarily to be an actress, there are many things that I would like to explore and I have a long list. To simplify the answer, I dream of having children. That has always been a dream that I have had and it is something that I hope to be able to do.

Can you tell us a little more about your experience with Latitud Project?
It is an amazing project. Some Canadian women who I think went to Mexico with their mothers every summer, ventured to Nicaragua. They started their foundation Latitude Project. In recent years, having a presence in the country has been more difficult, not only because of the COVID pandemic, but also because of the political situation in Nicaragua. Basically they find communities with a lot of need and work with them, ask them about what they need. Be it drinking water, solar energy… and they do a project a year with these communities. They build it with them. I went to bring more awareness to Latitud, but usually they only work with the community and the people there so they can have more autonomy over what they build together. It’s always amazing. I have been with them a few times. Every time, on every project, you meet some very beautiful people and it’s truly amazing how few dollars it takes to change an entire community. It was an amazing experience and I hope to be able to return soon.

(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 discusses her 1st Emmy nomination for “WandaVision”  

Following up on the Variety article, we now have an interview that Elizabeth gave after her Emmy nomination was announced. A fun talk, which also brings up Halloween costumes? Check out the interview, posted by Awards Watch below!

With the incredible 23 Emmy nominations for WandaVision this morning, the most for any limited series this year, it only seemed fitting to speak with Elizabeth Olsen about her first Emmy nomination. Little did we know that we’d eventually speak with her over the phone while she was driving through a canyon which in many ways is very fitting. Wanda and Vision find themselves in the oddest of circumstances during some of the more recognizable time periods in recent history. How did Elizabeth find out about her nomination? What was her favorite episode in the series? Did she speak with any of the cast following the announcement? We cover it all and then some.

Dewey Singleton: Congratulations, Ms. Olsen.

Elizabeth Olsen: Thank you. Fair warning, I am driving through a canyon. Just wanted to let you know.

DS: Let’s get to the obvious question, how did you find out?

EO: My partner Robbie told me when I was emptying the dishwasher this morning.

DS: Was there disbelief? Were you shocked that you got nominated?

EO: I mean, I am okay being the underdog. So, I wasn’t trying to get my hopes up, but I definitely was hoping that our show would get recognized. And I know that it did have a really special response, and being a part of Marvel, you don’t get a lot of kind critical recognition from awards. And so, you never know, and I’m surprised. And I think I’m mostly excited that it sounds like so many of our departments got recognized and it was a very challenging job and we all cared so much. And so, I’m just happy for the entire 360, I’m very happy for everyone that worked so hard on our show.

DS: When I talked to your marvelous director Matt Shakman, he said that quote, you not being nominated would be an injustice because of what you brought to that series. He said that about you and Paul. What was it like working with him on the series?

EO: There’s no way this show would have been created by anyone else and been as successful. I don’t think there’s a person in the world who’s more equipped to create such a great job with something that asks so much of a director stylistically and genre-wise and tonally. And I just feel like, and beyond that, he’s a kind, patient, an incredible source of information. Matt Shakman’s just, I cannot speak more highly of him. He’s really just, we were so lucky to have him. And I still work with the same hair and makeup team since WandaVision. And we talk about him almost every day. We adore Matt Shakman.

DS: Out of all the episodes of WandaVision, which one was the most enjoyable to you? My theory is that it had to have been the one in front of the live studio audience.

EO: You know what, that wasn’t my favorite just because it was the first. And I think it was a lot, right? It was just a lot of, we’re starting our show. This is the first way we’re starting our show. I think it was, I felt less in control of that one. And then I think once we got to the seventies, I just felt so free because the seventies tonally already kind of had the most absurd comedy style that we were going for. And so, I really enjoyed that style of comedy. And then I enjoyed this splicing between that and kind of the false exterior starting to come down a bit in that episode. So, there was a tonal line that was fun to play. And then the seventies sitcom was just a joy.
