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.

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.

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.
