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.”

-I also really liked this interview with Shadow and Bone author Leigh Bardugo. “Teenage girls have so much sway over culture, yet people sneer at the things that women and girls love, and are contemptuous of the creators of that content, particularly if they are women. To me, that contempt speaks to a deep fear. When you start dictating culture, money gets involved and people take notice. When I see someone deride things that women and girls find pleasure in, all I see is someone fearful that women will overtake the culture they’ve had dominion over for so long.”
