Elizabeth Olsen says she has never met John Krasinski and doesn’t know him despite appearing across from him in a recent movie.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness SPOILERS ahead

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, in which she was hooked up to a lie detector, Elizabeth Olsen said she has never met John Krasinski despite appearing opposite of him and exchanging dialogue in Multiverse of Madness. In the newest Doctor Strange movie, Olsen, as Wanda, confronted the members of the Illuminati as they stood between her and America Chavez.

Krasinski, as Reed Richards, talks directly to Wanda, and Wanda talks directly back to him, before shredding him to bits. This isn’t to say that they filmed the scene together, as Marvel is known for its complex shoots in which actors could be in the same scene but not film it at the same time due to scheduling issues.

The initial question Olsen was asked is if she thought, “this man is the smartest man alive” while being shown a picture of John Krasinski, to which she promptly said, “no” through a burst of earnest laughter. She then proceeded to talk about how she’d never met John but had met his wife, Emily Blunt.

““I hate to say it, I hope I don’t sound ridiculous, I don’t know who this man is. I mean, he could be walking down the street, and I wouldn’t know a thing. Sorry to this man. I’ve met his wife, though.” — Elizabeth Olsen on John Krasinski”

Elizabeth also talked about how she is trying to get into smoking weed, dubbing herself an “aspiring stoner.” She hilariously describes her routine as taking a small hit, trying not to cough, waiting 45 minutes, taking another hit, then calling it bedtime.
