Elizabeth Olsen has been talking about how growing up in the glare of the paparazzi was ‘weird’ and ‘very scary’.
The actress, who plays Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel films, is the younger sister of former child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who went on to become fashion icons.
At 31, she is three years younger than the twins, who attracted intense media interest at the height of their fame in the early 2000s.
‘It’s weird growing up with that,’ she said. ‘The paparazzi part was the strange part because they follow you, and as a child it was very scary.
‘They were obsessed with them turning 18.’
Elizabeth, who is reprising her role as Maximoff — also known as the Scarlet Witch — in the Disney+ series WandaVision, is currently living in London with her musician fiancé Robbie Arnett.
They are enjoying it so much, they would like to make their stay permanent. ‘I’m having the greatest time,’ Elizabeth told Jessie Ware for her Table Manners podcast.
‘I’m with my man partner and we’re in Richmond. We’re living this British dream, in this house, in Richmond right by the water.
‘We want to figure out how to stay here so now we want to write a romcom… because we don’t want to leave. I have such an affinity for England already that last year we were looking into how we could legally live here.’
Pirate Ashnikko ups the arrr! Rating
She is tipped to be one of the breakout stars of 2021 — and Ashnikko is hoping to plunder some chart success with her pirate-themed track Deal With It.
The blue-haired singer, 24, swaps land for the deep blue sea with some monstrous results in the video for the tune, the last single to be released before her hotly anticipated mixtape Demidevil drops tomorrow.
American-born Ashnikko has been blowing up these past two years, with Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus among her admirers. And with more than 2million TikTok followers, we are expecting big things this year.
She described her single, which samples Caught Out There by Kelis, as ‘my tentacle break-up fantasy brought to life’.
And Kelis, 41, gave the track her seal of approval, saying on Twitter: ‘20 years later, Caught Out There still connects.’
‘Uncle’ Justin would love a little Bieb-y of his own…
Bieber’s getting broody! The Baby singer seemed obsessed with his ‘nephew’ as he and wife Hailey enjoyed a break in Hawaii.
The 26-year-old pop prince shared multiple pics of him cuddling and playing with a friend’s baby boy, and seemed to be missing the little tyke once he returned home to LA.
Justin, who has been married to model Hailey, 24, since 2018, has made no secret of his desire to be a father.
He even captioned one of his Instagram pics ‘practice’ as Hailey adjusted the baby’s shorts in a pool while Biebs gently cradled his head to keep it above water.
Leaving home was too much for Baby Spice
Emma Bunton suffered from a bout of homesickness when she first went to live with her fellow Spice Girls.
Baby Spice was only 19 when she joined the group. The night she and her bandmates moved into a shared house was the first she had ever spent away from her family — and it hit her hard.
‘The first night I got there I shared with Victoria and I was lying in bed and got really upset,’ Emma, 44, told Clemmie Telford on her Honestly podcast.
‘It was my first night away from home ever. So I got up and went and said, “Girls, this is my first time away from home and I feel like this is going to be special, but I feel really homesick and I miss my mum and I don’t know what to do”.
They all hugged me and I knew that was it.’
When hip hop chiefs said neigh to wannabe Meg
The bosses of Love And Hip Hop should WAP themselves on the wrists after it emerged Megan Thee Stallion auditioned for the show — but was snubbed.
Rapper Megan, 25, is one of the world’s most successful female MCs following WAP’s monster success — and she always predicted she would make it big.
The unearthed audition tape shows a young Megan bigging herself up to the VH1 reality show, saying: ‘Megan Thee Stallion is just gonna become that household name.
‘When you’re talking about those popping rappers, I’m going to be in that conversation.’
- She may only be 19 but that’s not stopping Billie Eilish releasing a photo book about her life so far. The self-titled book promises to share a detailed look at the singer’s life from childhood to very early adulthood.
- Danny Dyer was mistakenly named ‘Danial’ on his birth certificate because his dad was too ‘bladdered’ to spell it properly. The EastEnders star, 43, was speaking on his podcast about why he changed to Danny. Fair enough, we say.
- It seems the Biden administration’s first act is to bring SexyBack as Justin Timberlake confirmed he will perform at the incoming US president’s inauguration. JT, 39, will perform a new song called Better Days.
