Awkward! Elizabeth Olsen accused of LYING when asked if Danielle Haim was a good actress in Licorice Pizza… as she squirms taking lie detector test
After bravely taking part in Vanity Fair’s lie detector test series, Elizabeth Olsen was left red-faced when one of her answers turned out to be false.
The 33-year-old WandaVision star was questioned about musician Danielle Haim who had a small role in the Paul Thomas Anderson movie Licorice Pizza.
Asked whether she though she was a better actress than Danielle, 33, the Doctor Strange star answered honestly and she said laughing: ‘Yeah. Sorry Danielle.’

However, when pressed further over whether she had seen the film and liked Danielle’s performance, the lie detector went off.
‘No, I loved the film, and I thought she was great in it. But she didn’t have to do much,’ Elizabeth said.
The man operating the lie detector cut in saying: ‘She’s lying about the film.’
Playing themselves: The Haim sisters starred in Licorice Pizza (L-R, Alana, Danielle, and Este Haim, and their real-life mother and father Donna and Moti)

Uncomfortable: The WandaVision star apologized to Danielle when it appeared she was not a fan of her acting
Trying to figure out whether she was lying about if she liked the movie or Danielle’s performance, Elizabeth said: Oh, I did like the film Or about her acting. Oh yeah, she was fine. F***, man. Sorry, Danielle. You did great. I don’t know what’s happening. It’s so uncomfortable right now.’
Elizabeth has previously revealed that she has known the Haim sisters since high school, and says she once thought of Danielle as the ‘coolest person on Earth.’
To be fair to Elizabeth, Danielle only had a very minor and supporting role in the film, which was anchored by her sister Alana’s fantastic debut performance.
Elizabeth started off by saying she was ‘intimidated’ by Danielle in high school saying ‘she was always that cool.’
When asked if she still thinks she’s the coolest person in the world, Elizabeth responded: ‘She’s a very talented person and has a very cool vibe. I think if I wanted to be a rock star one day I would wanna grow up to be like her.’
