Elizabeth Olsen Is Unrecognizable With Her New Bangs

Elizabeth Olsen Is Unrecognizable With Her New Bangs

Since she joined her sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, in the spotlight, Elizabeth Olsen, aka “the other Olsen,” has proven she’s capable of standing on her own: Unlike her older sisters, whom she’s referred to as “notoriously tight-lipped,” the 29-year-old actress has established a presence on social media, indulged the media with a steady stream of interviews, allowed herself to be captured smiling with her teeth, and gotten strikingly intimate onscreen—most recently as a young widow in the Facebook Watch series Sorry for Your Loss.

She has, on the other hand, stayed loyal to one tried-and-true family tradition: wearing her dirty blonde, perfectly messy hair with a part straight down the middle (as well as occasionally, but not drastically, to the side). That abruptly came to an end, though, on Sunday night, which saw Olsen step out on the red carpet at the 2018 Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards in Los Angeles in a typically minimalistic ensemble, made up of entirely black. She departed from tradition, however, with not only a notably sleek, un-bedhead-like head of waves, but also a set of lightly feathered bangs, just short enough to show off her cat-eye eyeliner.

Elizabeth Olsen Says “It’s Only Going To Get Worse” In Avengers 4′

Even though Avengers 4 — arguably the biggest movie Marvel Studios has produced to date — is still seven months away, fan anticipation is at an all-time high. As guests at this weekend’s ACE Comic Con in Chicago, Avengers: Infinity War stars Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston were both on hand to answer fan questions.

In a panel, which was apparently moderated by Hiddleston himself, things got bleak rather fast with the pair starting conversation off by discussing the sacrifices their characters made in Infinity War.

“The thing you have to do at the end of Infinity War is a kind of sacrifice and arguably Loki makes a similar one,” Hiddleston told his co-star.

If you recall, of course, Hiddleston was referring to Olsen’s Scarlet Witch killing Paul Bettany’s Vision in an attempt to keep the Mind Stone out of the hands of Thanos.

Although she initially was able to destroy the Mind Stone — which, in turn, killed Vision — Thanos (Josh Brolin) quickly used the Time Stone to reverse her actions and take the Mind Stone, allowing him to fully assemble his Infinity Gauntlet.

According to Olsen, things aren’t going to get better for Wanda Maximoff in Avengers 4. “It’s only going to get worse,” Olsen said while looking out at the crowd.

That Infinity War was kept a secret from the movie’s cast until the day they filmed it, Olsen had previously revealed.

“I found out from the Russos exactly what was going to happen, and it wasn’t until we shot it on that day we learned what the ending was,” said Olsen. “They took us into a van – all of us – we were in a van with air conditioning because it was very hot, and they told us how the movie was going to end, and no one knew. And they were like ‘Now we’re shooting it, Go!’ and we were like ‘How are we supposed to interpret that?’”

Avengers 4 — which has yet to receive an official name — recently wrapped reshoots, an event marked by a mysterious image posted to social media on behalf of Joe and Anthony Russo.

Avengers 4 opens May 3, 2019.

Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen tease what they know about Avengers 4

Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen discussed their MCU characters plus small teasers for Avengers 4 this weekend at ACE Comic Con in Chicago. The God of Mischief and Scarlet Witch might not have shared any screentime together in the MCU, but that didn’t stop Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen from having a little fireside (in this cas, panel side) chat about their two characters at ACE Comic Con in Chicago over the weekend.

Of course, fans were eager to learn what the future had in store for the two characters. After all, they both technically “died” in Infinity War. Loki being outright killed by Thanos, and Scarlet Witch being blown away by Thanos’ snap.

So, is Loki really dead? Hiddleston recalled a fan theory from someone that made it sound very plausible that Loki might actually still be alive. “I was at a park in London a few days ago and some guys came to say ‘Hi’ and they asked me the same question… They said: ‘Hey, all the other times Loki’s died, he stabs with his right hand. Now he’s stabbing with his right hand.’”

“That’s an incredible attention to detail,” Hiddleston admitted. But ultimately, like all who keep mum about Marvel’s secrets, he could only conclude, “Your guess is as good as mine.”

Elizabeth teases ‘playful’ final episodes of Sorry For Your Loss

Elizabeth teases ‘playful’ final episodes of Sorry For Your Loss

Leigh’s (Elizabeth Olsen) life may be messier than ever, but in the final episodes of Facebook Watch’s Sorry For Your Loss, she’ll get some room to breathe.

“Episode 9 is like this lovely short film that exists in a parallel universe, where Leigh gets to step outside of herself for a moment,” Olsen teases of the Palm Springs-set penultimate half-hour, which she calls her favorite. “It’s just this bottle episode that exists on its own, and it was nice to explore a different aspect of her… There’s something freeing, to put all of [her family drama] aside and just be a more playful version of her, a less weighed-down version.”

That lightness helped Olsen behind the camera as well. As an executive producer of the drama about a widow dealing with life after death, the Avengers star has learned plenty from her first brush with creating television, including the fact that, despite being in every room — from table read to editing bay — for every episode, she rarely knew the full story. That pressure lasted throughout the series, even when it came to this Tuesday’s final installment. “As a performer, trying to create a cohesive through-line without knowing exactly where we were going was a weekly challenge,” she says. “To me, it was the most challenging part of the finale.”

Avengers 4: ANOTHER ‘dead’ Infinity War character spotted RETURNING for reshoots?

It’s no secret that Tom Holland’s time in the MCU is far from over. Not only is he still a relatively new arrival, but fans already know he’s filming his own new movie Spider-Man: Far From Home. So it’s no real shock to know that he’s been spotted allegedly en route to Atlanta to join his Marvel co-stars doing reshoots and pick-ups for Avengers 4. A Twitter user with the handle @goldenclosetboy shared a snap to social media over the weekend that seems to show the British actor on the plane.

It remains to be seen how Holland’s Peter Parker will rejoin the action, but he won’t be alone. Actors who portray several other ‘dead’ heroes have been seen attending filming, including Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis). Chris Evans, meanwhile, appears to have confirmed that Captain America is bowing out at the end of the next film. He tweeted: “Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least.

“Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. “To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful.” How Evans will make his exit remains to be seen, but fans’ most immediate concern is what the actual title of the movie will be. Last week it emerged that the name of Avengers 4 was Avengers: Annihilation, although this has not been officially confirmed by Marvel.

Mark Ruffalo appeared to poke fun at the speculation over the weekend, and it’s unknown now when the moniker will be unveiled properly. The blockbuster will draw a line under the past 22 films’ worth of storytelling, which began with Iron Man back in 2008. Before it hits cinemas, MCU fans will get to meet Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers – aka Captain Marvel – in her solo movie next March.

Avengers 4 is out on April 26, 2019.

Elizabeth Jets Off to Palm Springs to Disconnect in ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ Sneak Peek

Elizabeth Jets Off to Palm Springs to Disconnect in ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ Sneak Peek

Sometimes you have to get away.

Facebook Watch’s Sorry for Your Loss wraps up its freshman season on Tuesday, and in the penultimate episode, widower Leigh Shaw (Elizabeth Olsen) impulsively jets off to Palm Springs, California, after she receives a call from a spa resort to confirm a reservation that was made months ago for her and her late husband, Matt, for that evening — a wedding gift from her father.

In ET’s exclusive sneak peek, Leigh makes the two-hour drive to the desert and pulls into the luxurious hotel with just the clothes on her back and her day bag. She makes the decision to disconnect completely, turning off her cell phone and leaving it in her car — after letting her mom and sister know of course.

When she checks in at the front desk, she’s told that the reservation was booked under the resort’s Romance Package, which means two of everything, including room keys. Her face drops a little in that moment. “Just one… is good,” Leigh says, the sadness apparent in her eyes, as she also opts out of any help with her luggage since she didn’t bring any.

Episode 9 can be viewed here.

Elizabeth Olsen on the uplifting community of widowers and mourners that has formed around Sorry For Your Loss

Elizabeth Olsen on the uplifting community of widowers and mourners that has formed around Sorry For Your Loss

Elizabeth Olsen has opened up the community of mourners that have formed around Sorry For Your Loss, the Facebook Watch drama that she both produced and starred in as a young widower.When its trailer was released back in August those who have suffered a loss and have struggled with grief took to “Sorry For Your Loss’s” Facebook page to share their own stories. This dialogue and the community of people looking to exchange their stories and help each other has only increased with passing episode.

I had the chance to speak to Olsen before the first episode of the show had aired, and she admitted that the response to the trailer was exactly the reason why Facebook Watch was the perfect platform for “Sorry For Your Loss,” something that the increased level of sharing has only underlined.

“I think that is the point of it being on Facebook. I mean, I read comments about me on Facebook once and I was like, ‘I am never doing that again.’”

“But for these comments to be a source of communication and a community is the whole point why Facebook created Facebook Watch. That’s why it is the perfect place for the show.”

“Because most people come to Facebook and discover that there is a baby or that someone died and you try to figure out when the service is.”

“That’s how you receive the information. It is also a place of different grieving groups or of people who are a certain age and have lost this certain thing.”

“So they can find a community that they can’t find where they live, so they can communicate about things that they can’t at home. That’s what we want this show to start as a dialogue between people and their lives.”

“The fact that it is a visual dialogue that you can read is pretty crazy to me especially when there are articles written about what people are just stating publicly. It is really nice that it has already created this dialogue.”

The final episodes of “Sorry For Your Loss” will air on Facebook Watch at 9pm on Facebook Watch on October 9.

How Elizabeth Olsen’s ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ Became a Stunning Exploration of Grief and Moving On

How Elizabeth Olsen’s ‘Sorry for Your Loss’ Became a Stunning Exploration of Grief and Moving On

Warning: This interview contains spoilers from the first six episodes of Facebook Watch’s Sorry for Your Loss, which are streaming now.

Sorry for Your Loss is this year’s best-kept secret.

In Facebook Watch’s stellar half-hour drama series, Elizabeth Olsen plays Leigh Shaw, a young widow trying to pick up the pieces following the sudden death of her husband, Matt (Mamoudou Athie). She is a millennial filled with anger, quiet rage and bite, but as she gradually discovers, her husband’s loss forces her to reexamine her own life and her relationships to those closest to her, namely her sister, Jules (Kelly Marie Tran), a recovering alcoholic; mother Amy (Janet McTeer), owner of a floundering gym; and Matt’s brother, Danny (Jovan Adepo).

Instead of wallowing in her grief, Sorry for Your Loss provides Leigh the freedom to experience and process the death of her husband in her own way. After all, there is no right way to grieve. For creator Kit Steinkellner, who drew inspiration from a near-traumatic experience with her husband, and showrunner Lizzy Weiss, that was the guiding principle that was top of mind for the long-gestating 10-episode series.

“One of the things that we learned is there isn’t one authentic way and that’s what we’re trying to honor with every character — that every character is experiencing [Matt’s] death in a different way,” Weiss tells ET. “Every character is very different in the way they process it and when we talked to our psychiatrist and grief experts, that’s the truth. That’s the message. There isn’t a right way to go through loss and however you’re feeling, you’re allowed to feel.”

“From the original pitch, it was the intention to show that this is a multi-faceted experience because life is multi-faceted. It is devastating one minute and then something comes along that is completely hilarious and you’re laughing through your tears,” Steinkellner tells ET. “We were very careful in calibrating the changes to maintain the overall tone of the show to make sure it was consistent.”

With the second half of the freshman season hitting Facebook Watch over the next week, Steinkellner and Weiss talk to ET about the challenges of making the series, what it says about difficult topics like death and loss, and why there’s much more story to tell.

ET: Kit, when did you first get the idea for Sorry for Your Loss?

Kit Steinkellner: It will be five years around the holidays since I started writing the pilot. In the first episode, there is a flashback sequence when [Leigh] wakes up in the middle of the night and her husband is nowhere to be found and she is scared out of her mind that something terrible has happened to him. That was very much based on a real night in my life. Everything was fine, my husband was fine but I couldn’t shake it, just the terror of what had happened and what could have happened. It had been a year where a couple of important people in my life had died, so I felt very vulnerable and unsafe in that moment in time. I started thinking deeply about what it would be like to survive this impossible thing — something people survive every day. The more I started thinking about this heroine, in particular, played by Lizzy Olsen, and the people in her life, I really grew to love them and I really needed to tell their story. It was burning a hole in my gut.

Did having personal experiences with losing loved ones during a short period of time make the process of writing this show more challenging? Did you find it cathartic?

Steinkellner: It was all of those things. I joked about a few times while making this that if this had been directly autobiographical, if my husband was dead, I would not have written the show, I would have written a fantasy or a space opera. It would have been too painful to write this exactly how I wrote it. What we were able to do throughout the series is you take one truth and then you put it inside the pocket of another truth and then you put that inside another vessel of truth, so it’s like a matryoshka doll of truth.

How early in the creative process was Elizabeth Olsen, who also is an executive producer, brought in? Was she always the first choice to be Leigh?

Steinkellner: Yes. Once Lizzy had read the material and sat down and we talked, it was this crazy experience where I realized I had written the part for her without knowing I had written this part for her. She was the only lead. She was always meant to play this role. It’s impossible to imagine anybody else doing what she does with this role. I think that was fall 2015, so it’s been a couple of years.
