IMDb also had a Top Breakout Stars of 2021, with Reg?-Jean Page taking home the title. Page was one of the hottest names in the year, especially after Netflix announced he wouldn’t return for Bridgerton Season 2. Fans even want to see Page step into the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig passes the torch. Olsen joins Paul Rudd in receiving a year-end award, as People Magazine named the Ant-Man star the Sexiest Man Alive.
The eventful year for Elizabeth Olsen continued when she got married over the summer to musician Robbie Arnett. “I’m in a bathroom. I’ve been in the U.K. for seven months, and I got back two days ago… I also just noticed that my husband put Little Miss Magic, you know, the Little Miss books? They’re these classic books, but magic because of WandaVision, because he’s such a f**king cutie,” Olsen said during an interview with Harley Quinn star Kaley Cuoco for Variety’s Actors on Actors series.
She’s also been filming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, an upcoming Marvel blockbuster film bringing together Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch, while also introducing America Chavez to the MCU. Loki is rumored to appear, as well as other surprise guest appearances from Fox’s X-Men movies.
