WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen Now & Then: See Mary-Kate & Ashley’s Younger Sister Through The Years

Published

Elizabeth Olsen


Elizabeth Olsen will end the MCU dry spell with the premiere of her new series, ‘WandaVision,’ on Jan. 15. See her through the years, leading up to this Disney+ project!

Long before she was a major Marvel star, Elizabeth Olsen was known as the little sister of the famous Olsen twins: Mary-Kate and Ashley. Of course, the 31-year-old actress now has an impressive reputation of her own. Elizabeth is one-half of the iconic Wanda Maximoff and Vision superhero duo from the Avengers film series who will be now leading their own TV show, WandaVision, which will premiere on Disney+ on Jan. 15.

Elizabeth got her start in acting by making cameos in multiple ’90s projects that starred her famous sisters: Our First Video, Olsen Twins Mother’s Day Special, The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley and How the West Was Fun. She even appeared on a 1995 episode of their famous sitcom, Full House!

Elizabeth didn’t get her serious start in commercial acting, though, until years later as a young adult. She was 20 and 21 years old when two movies in which she played the leading role — Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene — came out in 2011. Martha Marcy May Marlene was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival, leading Elizabeth to be nominated for many critics awards (six of which she won).

This set a great precedent for the rest of Elizabeth’s film career, which took off right as her older sisters were retiring from the business (Ashley’s last movie appearance was in 2009’s The Jerk Theory, while Mary-Kate’s was in the 2011 film Beastly). Indeed, it’s like the twins passed on the acting baton as they moved on to the world of fashion design. During this time, Elizabeth was also studying at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she graduated from in 2013.

Elizabeth went on to co-star alongside How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor in the 2012 film Liberal Arts, and had a leading role alongside Dakota Fanning in the 2013 movie Very Good Girls. The younger Olsen entered a whole new realm of fame, however, when she made her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wanda Maximoff (whose superhero alias is the Scarlet Witch) in a post-credits scene from the 2014 film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Elizabeth then made her official Marvel debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015, and has reprised the role in multiple Marvel films: Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, and will do so again in 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Amid all these Marvel movies, Elizabeth even starred in her own TV show called Sorry for Your Loss between 2018-2019.

And that leads us to Elizabeth’s most current project: WandaVision. Fans are eagerly anticipating this new show, which will be Marvel’s first live-action Disney+ series. Unlike the past MCU films Elizabeth and Paul Bettany (who plays Vision) have starred in, this project is quite different — for starters, their characters are essentially living in a sitcom reality. Elizabeth even revealed if this means the series will include a “wink” at Full House.

Outside of acting, Elizabeth became romantically linked to musician Robbie Arnett, 27, in March of 2017. They reportedly became engaged in July of 2019, and are still happily together. Elizabeth is all grown up! You can see more photos of the actress through the years in HollywoodLife‘s gallery above.

Bethenny Frankel Apologizes For Trashing Meghan Markle: She Must’ve Felt ‘Powerless’


After watching Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview on March 7, Bethenny Frankel back-tracked on previous comments she made about Meghan, specifically. Read her public apology.

Bethenny Frankel changed her tune about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after seeing the couple’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night. During the emotional sit-down — which took place in Montecito, CA, where Meghan and Harry are neighbors with the host — the expectant parents unveiled bombshell details about their life inside the palace walls. In the hours before the the interview aired, Bethenny tweeted, “Cry me a river,” in response to a fan tweet that included headlines about the Meghan and Harry’s estranged relationship with the Royal family. After facing major backlash for her comments, Bethenny tweeted an apology, following the broadcast.

“I watched M & H sit down. Emotional distress & racism must feel suffocating & powerless,” she wrote, explaining, “I’m a polarizing, unfiltered (often to a fault) flawed person w a voice. When I heard of the interview, during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice. I’m sorry if it hurt or offended you,” she concluded.

Just hours earlier, the former Real Housewives of New York City star was whistling a much different tune. When one fan tweeted that the Royal staff hadn’t been “respectful” of Meghan, Bethenny replied with: “Cry me a river…the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, [with] tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name [with] @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 [million] for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals,” she tweeted, adding a thinking face emoji and the hashtag “Marry” for their names. HollywoodLife reached out to representatives for Harry and Meghan for comment at the time.

In a separate tweet, Bethenny continued: “If you hate me for saying it here don’t listen to my podcast #justbwithbethenny it’s littered with my opinion…I chose reality tv, to work towards making $, to be scrutinized & criticized.I took the trappings & the beatings along with it. It’s a rose [with] petals & thorns. People beg to enter the often toxic institution I signed up for. That WAS the life I chose. You can’t play stupid & smart.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview marked their first time speaking out since officially stepping down from their royal duties and moving from the U.K. to Montecito, California. In wake of the drama, Meghan’s close friends, including former Suits co-stars Patrick J. Adams and Abigail Spencer, as well as friend Jessica Mulroney, have stepped up to defend the actress.

8 Most Shocking ‘Bachelor’ Endings Of All-Time: Peter’s Change Of Heart & MOre

Published

As this season of ‘The Bachelor’ winds down, we’re taking a look back at some of the show’s endings that didn’t quite go as planned!

The Bachelor has become a lot less cut and dry from the simple days of meeting a group of women, narrowing them down and choosing one to propose to! Through the years, several seasons did not end in a proposal, and many seasons had finales that totally shocked viewers, as things did not go as expected. Previews for the final two episodes of the show’s current season show star Matt James getting quite emotional as things dwindle down. Could it end just as shocking as some of these other Bachelor finales?!

Peter Weber — Season 24

Season 24 of The Bachelor starred Peter Weber. He narrowed his group of women down to two final choices, Madison Prewett and Hannah Ann Sluss. In the weeks leading up to the final rose ceremony, Madison started to have doubts about her relationship with Peter due to their difference in values. He urged her to stick around, but on their final date, she broke up with him and left the show. Peter went on to propose to Hannah Ann at the final rose ceremony, and they got engaged.

However, as the show was airing, Peter realized he still had feelings for Madison, and he and Hannah Ann ended their relationship. At the live After The Final Rose ceremony, Peter and Madison agreed to give their relationships another shot. It didn’t last long though, and they announced their breakup just days later. Weeks after filming, Peter re-connected with another contestant from his season, Kelley Flanagan, and they started dating during the spring of 2020. That relationship ended before the end of the year, although they sparked reconciliation rumors when they were spotted hanging out at the Super Bowl together.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. — Season 22

Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor may have had an even crazier ending! Arie proposed to Becca Kufrin at the final rose ceremony, but weeks later, as the season was airing, he realized he still had feelings for his runner-up, Lauren Burnham. Cameras were there when Arie and Becca met up for a “getaway weekend”, and they captured the pair’s emotional conversation as Arie revealed his true feelings. Becca was obviously devastated as they broke up.

Arie won Lauren back and wound up proposing to her on After the Final Rose. They tied the knot in Jan. 2019 and have a daughter together. In 2020, they also announced that they’re expecting twins, due in summer 2021! Meanwhile, Becca went on to star on The Bachelorette, where she got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen, but they broke up in 2020.

Colton Underwood — Season 23

Season 23, Colton Underwood’s season, also had a crazy finish. Cassie Randolph made the decision to leave the show during her fantasy suite date, after she found out that her dad didn’t give Colton his blessing to propose. Colton knew he wanted to choose Cassie, so he sent the other remaining women, Tayshia Adams and Hannah Godwin, home on the spot. Then, he fought to win Cassie back, and they left the show as a couple, but without getting engaged. They stayed together for more than a year before breaking up in 2020.

There were even more wild finishes where these came from, though! Click through the gallery above to check out the most shocking endings on The Bachelor over the years!

For the past year or so, Ariana has really stayed out of the public eye. Before that, though, she favored wearing baggy sweatshirts while out and about, and she was often caught by paparazzi in the look. Ari generally dressed up her oversized sweatshirts with a pair of heeled boots, like the cream-colored shoes in the photo above. She also wore her hair long and straight to go with the simplicity of the outfit.

Jennifer Lopez

We’re used to seeing Jennifer Lopez in sexy, skintight outfits, but even she likes to rock a more comfortable, baggy look once in a while. She was photographed in a white, oversized button down shirt, paired with denim boots. Of course, she still made the simple look stylish with a pair of fierce sunglasses and her hair slicked back into the perfect bun.

Olivia Munn
