Actress Elizabeth Olsen has spoken about having “totally debilitating” panic attacks in her younger years.The Marvel star, 32, said she learned to control them with “brain tricks from friends” rather than medication.Olsen, who is the cover star of Glamour UK’s April digital issue, told the magazine: “I had major panic attacks for a long time. It was totally debilitating. I was living in New York on my own and I was 22.”“I didn’t realise it [anxiety] was something that you could not control.“And the issue is the control part. And then I just learned a bunch of brain tricks from friends who actually went to a neuropsychiatrist and instead of medicating, I decided to do it that way.”She added: “With panic attacks, you have to put your attention off ‘whatever’s making you spin’ onto something else. It was (about) being present in the moment and identifying all the things around you in order to not spin.”Olsen also told the magazine she is “never going back to social media”.“And it’s not even like I was bullied. It’s not even like anything happened,” she said.Olsen said social media made her “uncomfortable” and she questioned why she was “even trying to create a character version” of herself.“I just felt weird how it organised my brain,” she said.“I’m not someone who’s obsessed with using a platform in any way.”Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is the younger sibling of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, former child stars who rose to fame on the TV series Full House, and who have since become renowned in the fashion world.She recently reprised her role as Wanda – also known as the Scarlet Witch – in Disney+ series WandaVision, alongside British-American actor Paul Bettany.Read the full interview in the Glamour UK April digital issue, online now.

It’s been months since we heard any rumblings about Paul Thomas Anderson’s follow-up to Phantom Thread (HAIM videos don’t count), with the last news being that he had cast Philip Seymour Hoffman’s son Cooper as the lead in the film back in September, but now The Film Stage has an important update: The movie is coming out this year, specifically November 26, which seems to suggest that there really is a future on the horizon where people can safely go to theaters and new movies come to those theaters instead of just opening on streaming platforms. That’s exciting, but we still don’t know much about Anderson’s next movie, like, say, what it’s called. We’ve heard that it’s set in California in the ‘70s and that Hoffman (in his acting debut!) is playing a young actor, with Alana Haim (from HAIM, also in her acting debut!) will also be appearing as… someone. We don’t know. The Film Stage says Bradley Cooper will be there as an “old-school producer/director” and Benny Safdie will play a politician, but it’s anyone’s guess at this point how those pieces will all fit together.
Following a high-profile trial, the former police officer was found guilty of murdering George Floyd.
Emilia Clarke is in final negotiations to join Marvel Studios’ “Secret Invasion,” the hot original series quickly coming together at Disney Plus. The “Game of Thrones” headliner’s role is naturally under wraps, and marks her first foray into the Marvel universe. She joins previously-reported cast Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Olivia Colman. […]
Rogen is drawing inspiration from Paul Thomas Anderson and Alfonso Cuarón to become more experimental in his film work.
There’s a moment that every child who aspires to movie stardom dreams about. They practise it in front of the mirror: graciously thanking their parents, their first drama teacher, their favourite hamster; smiling; waving; trying valiantly to cry. No, it’s not an Oscar’s acceptance speech – at least, not anymore; it’s the moment that super-producer Kevin Feige offers you his hand across a conference table and tells you you’ve landed a Marvel movie. Yesterday came the first reports that Olivia Colman is in talks to slip into full-body lycra and join the MCU, via the studio’s next small-screen series Secret Invasion. The news follows a recent clutch of arrivals of actresses of a similar age and calibre to Colman to other Marvel projects, including Kathryn Hahn’s show-stealing turn in WandaVision, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ surprise appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Such casting choices may once have sounded insane. Why would the woman who just two years ago won an Academy Award for her grief-stricken, crumbling performance as Queen Anne in The Favourite, and who is up for another one this weekend for The Father, choose to submerge her pristine brand as the reigning monarch of British acting, both on-screen and off-, in a barrel of brightly-coloured, pop-sountracked, quippy-scripted comic bookery? Secret Invasion sounds even more deranged than the average Marvel project: it will likely focus on the race of green, reptilian aliens called Skrulls (Ben Mendelsohn will reprise his role as Skrull commander Talos from Captain Marvel), as they invade earth by shapeshifting to imitate superheroes. Colman as an alien reptile? It’s hard to think of a more unlikely piece of casting since Judi Dench dressed up in a catsuit. But over the last decade, a foundational piece of Marvel’s strategy has been signing-on not just fresh-faced stars like Chris Evans and Tom Holland, but some of the world’s most serious performers: inde darlings (Mark Ruffalo, Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson), BBC-drama-grown Brits (Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch) and awards-laden powerhouses (Annette Bening, Scarlett Johansson, and even Anthony Hopkins, Colman’s co-star in The Father, who is also up for an Oscar) have all rocked up in the MCU. Much as the Harry Potter franchise once was, the films have become a who’s who of Oscar after-party invite lists.
Gemma Chan called the story — which referred to the late royal as "an often crotchety figure, offending people with gaffes about slitty eyes" — "irresponsible" amid the surge of anti-Asian attacks
