Elizabeth Olsen Announces Marriage from the Bathroom

For Variety, Elizabeth Olsen did a video chat with Kaley Cuoco — and she called in from the bathroom, because her neighbor was doing construction and it’s the quietest room in her house. During the interview, she also let it slip that she’s married her longtime boyfriend Robbie Arnett. “I also just noticed that my husband put ‘Little Miss Magic,’ you know, the ‘Little Miss’ books? They’re these classic books, but magic because of WandaVision, because he’s such a fucking cutie.”

It was really, really, really severe. It was a problem.” He added that he still keeps in touch with Harry Syles. “I had a lovely phone call from Harry the other day. He was checking in on me. It’s almost as if some people have got a sixth sense about when you’re going through something and want to check in. He’s very much like that. He’s a lovely, lovely boy.”

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson gathered via Zoom for THR’s TV actress roundtable. They discussed pay, with Anderson talking about being offered a tenth of what David Duchovny was offered for the reboot. “That was the point where I was like, “Fuck this. I’m actually going to talk about this [publicly].” Erivo also discussed salary (“I’m a Black woman. That has a lot to do with how you’re paid, how you’re hired, if you’re hired, the way you’re hired — it affects everything”) and how she still has to ask for Black makeup artists on set. “It isn’t about vanity, it’s about making sure that whoever I’m playing is represented in the right way because they understand how to work with my skin tone and my hair.”

Still problematic, but less so.

-Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will play Lizzie Bennett in a contemporary rom-com for Netflix that’s “in the spirit of Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You.” Yes, I’ll take all the Pride and Prejudice adaptations.

We’re like, girls don’t talk to each other the way we had to talk to each other on that show, and also don’t behave the way we had to behave on that show. Come on! That was, like, some gross older man’s fantasy. And it was icky.”
