Elizabeth Olsen has revealed new details about her marriage to musician Robbie Arnett. In a June 28 interview with SiriusXM, Olsen confirmed that she and Arnett eloped prior to the COVID-19 lockdown. "We never really talked much about our marriage," Olsen said. "We eloped, and then we had a wedding at another time, but it was before COVID. I just never talked about it."
It turns out there was a specific reason for the timing of the couple's covert nuptials. "I had to work in England and there are visa issues with that," Olsen explained. "He wouldn't have been able to come at all actually. And also everything was so backed up. You couldn't even like try to get married then. But it ended up working out."
The confession comes about a year after Olsen seemed to casually reveal that she and Arnett had tied the knot during a June 2021 chat with Kaley Cuoco for Variety's "Actors on Actors" video series. While doing the interview from her bathroom, Olsen referred to her longtime boyfriend as her husband as she noted how he'd put "Little Miss Magic" decor in the background. "I also just noticed that my husband put 'Little Miss Magic.' You know, the 'Little Miss' books?" she said to Cuoco. "They're these classic books, but 'magic' because of 'WandaVision,' because he's such a f*cking cutie!"
The surprise marriage news wasn't too much of a shock for fans of Olsen and Arnett, as they'd been notoriously private about their relationship over the years. The "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" actor reportedly first met the musician while on vacation in Mexico. The two eventually sparked romance rumors when E! News reported that they'd been spotted walking arm in arm in New York City in March 2017. In 2019, People confirmed that they were engaged, but the couple never commented on the news themselves.
Though they've been quiet about their love, they have given fans a few glimpses through public appearances. See some of their cutest pictures ahead.
