‘He was genuinely mad at me!’ Elizabeth Olsen reveals Paul Bettany was left FUMING when she joked about his runny nose dripping onto her face during WandaVision kiss scene

Elizabeth Olsen has revealed her WandaVision co-star Paul Bettany was left fuming with her when she made an ill-timed joke about his runny nose during filming.

Elizabeth, 31, and Paul, 49, whose characters Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) and Vision enjoyed a brief and epic romance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, have reprised their roles in the new Disney+ series.

It sees the pair dropped into a 1950s suburban town and discovering they’re in a black and white sitcom and hurtling through the decades together – but Elizabeth revealed it wasn’t all plain sailing on set during a chat on Monday’s The One Show.

Appearing with Paul via webcam, the Avengers star spoke about the awkward moment Paul’s runny nose dripped onto her face during a passionate kiss scene.  

As Paul exclaimed: ‘Oh no, don’t let her tell the story’ she said: ‘Paul has three layers of purple paint on his face, he cannot feel his skin.

‘He was giving me a kiss in this scene pre-COVID and his snot fell onto my face.’

‘And it was the first time in our relationship that Paul was genuinely mad at me.’

A mortified Paul then added: ‘It was Elizabeth who was the real perpetrator!’ 

Discussing the filming of show before the COVID-19 pandemic, she said:’It was probably too much fun to make. 

‘Getting to film in front of a live studio audience, pretending you’re in a Dick Van Dyke show but you’re a superhero character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a magical joyful thing.

‘We had such a rush getting to do this together as an ensemble.’
