Press: Elizabeth Olsen and Husband Robbie Arnett Write Kids’ Book About ‘Self-Care’

The couple announced their debut children’s book Hattie Harmony: Worry Detective, which will be published by Viking Children’s Books on June 28, 2022

PEOPLE: Elizabeth Olsen and her husband Robbie Arnett care about wellness — and they want little ones to care about it, too.

On Thursday, the couple announced their debut children’s book Hattie Harmony: Worry Detective, which will be published by Viking Children’s Books on June 28, 2022.

“Robbie and I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce the world to Hattie Harmony,” the 32-year-old WandaVision actress tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Inspired by the picture books we adored as kids, we hope that Hattie will become a friend and a welcomed reminder to be kind to yourself and to each other.”

She continues: “We couldn’t have brought Hattie’s world to life without Marissa Valdez’s imaginative illustrations. In the words of Hattie Harmony… ‘Worry, Worry, Go Away… There’s No Time For You Today.’ ”

Hattie Harmony: Worry Detective is the first book in the couple’s new series. Illustrated by Marissa Valdez, the picture book follows Hattie Harmony, a “Worry Detective,” who helps her friends overcome their everyday anxieties like getting on the school bus or speaking in front of their classmates. With sweetness and warmth, she also finds ways to deal with her own fears.

“When we sat down to write Hattie Harmony, our goal was to create a relatable character who made talking about complicated feelings fun and engaging for kids,” Olsen and Arnett, 29, explain in a joint statement.

“We hope Hattie Harmony will become a welcomed reminder that it’s okay to speak up when we need help,” they continue, “and to always treat ourselves and others with kindness.”

The pair made their first public appearance as a couple in September 2017. Olsen is loved by Marvel fans for her portrayal of Wanda Maximoff and Arnett is a lead singer in the indie band Milo Greene. Now, they’re joining creative forces to teach children about wellness.

Press: Inside Elizabeth Olsen’s Serene Emmys Getting Ready Experience

VOGUE: If you hadn’t heard, Elizabeth Olsen attended 2021’s Emmy ceremonies in a custom gown from The Row, the minimalist fashion label helmed by her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley. The internet loved that tidbit, but it was only one element of Olsen’s time at the ceremony. A first-time nominee for her performance as Wanda Maximoff on Disney +’s WandaVision, Olsen was up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. In the series, her character has to move between realities, emotions, and meta-TV references at rapid speed. And yet during the lead-up to her big night, Olsen kept things calm.

Pre-show Olsen and her glam squad of stylist Elizabeth Stewart, makeup artist Pati Dubroff, and hairstylist Adir Abergel put together an understated look that didn’t skimp on luxury. Abergel gave Olsen a brand new bob, Dubroff applied warm shades of Chanel cosmetics, and Augustinus Bader’s famously rich cream, while Stewart topped things off with chandelier earrings from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie Collection featuring 68.7 carats of diamonds set in titanium.

Joined on the red carpet by husband Robbie Arnett, the couple wore his and hers pieces from The Row, giving an evening of bombastic fashion a moment of serene elegance. Here, the star shares a peek into her getting-ready process and a closer look at that instantly iconic gown.

 

Augustinus Bader Cream is by far the greatest cream to wear under any makeup. I’m obsessed.

Never forget to get the neck!

After doing a final fit with the dress, Adir began to play with shapes for hair.

Press: Elizabeth Olsen’s Sisters Designed Her Emmys Dress

VOGUE: Wandavision star and first-time Emmy nominee Elizabeth Olsen chose to make her red carpet appearance this evening a family affair. Olsen, who is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series at tonight’s ceremony, wore an ethereal white design from The Row, her sister Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s luxury label. The minimal gown stuck to the clean, unfussy silhouettes that The Row has become known for since launching in 2006: It features a deep-V neckline, billowy sleeves, and a floor-length hemline. In it, Olsen looked timeless and classic, yet the silhouette also felt modern enough to stand out.

In an interview earlier this year, Olsen said that her sisters are her greatest style icons. “Everything my sisters have ever worn in my entire life I have wanted to wear still as an adult today,” Olsen said. “I want their coats. I want their shoes. I want their dresses—and that is something that I never grew out of.” Tonight she got an even better opportunity: To have a custom look made by the style icons themselves. Clearly, they all know that when it comes to red carpet dressing, stripping things back can be the most effective statement of all. Less is more, baby!

Press: Elizabeth Olsen’s Emmy dress was designed by her sisters

Press: Elizabeth Olsen’s Marvelous Journey From Mary-Kate and Ashley’s Little Sis to Emmy Nominee

Nominated for her first Emmy for Disney+’s WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen has stepped out of her famous sisters’ massive shadow to become a force to be reckoned with in the MCU and Hollywood.


E! Online: Given their diminutive stature, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen sure do cast a massive shadow. But it’s one Elizabeth Olsen has stepped out of, becoming a force to be reckoned with as an actress and an Avenger.

Elizabeth, 32, is nominated for her first Emmy for her work on Disney+’s beloved WandaVision and it was her bewitching performance as the grief-stricken Wanda Maximoff—or Scarlett Witch if you’re into that sort of thing—that helped land the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first TV series a whopping 23 nominations. Not bad for a character some fans had initially written off as ancillary in the MCU.

Then again, defying expectations is something Elizabeth has been doing her entire life—literally. By the time she was born in 1989, her older sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley, now 35, were already household names, thanks to their shared role as Michelle Tanner on the hit ABC sitcom Full House.

The twins quickly parlayed their sitcom success into an impressive empire, starring in TV shows and movies under their own production company, as well as launching their own product and fashion lines, magazine and toys. They were running a billion-dollar company by the time they turned 20.

And Elizabeth was always there, whether on-screen or off. She first appeared in 1994’s How the West Was Fun when she was just 4 years old and then popped up in several of The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley video series—perhaps most memorably, Mary-Kate and Ashley singing “B-U-T-T Out” sang to little Lizzie when she tried to accompany them on one of their investigations.

But appearing in her older sisters’ projects was Elizabeth’s version of daycare, not the real start of her acting career.

“The one thing that people say that annoys me is, ‘It’s her first time working since doing her sisters’ videos,'” Elizabeth explained to Nylon in 2011. “When I was younger, my brother and I were both in the videos because there are four kids in my family, so after school my parents would take us to the set so we’d all be at the same place. So while I was on set [Mary-Kate and Ashley] would be like, ‘Hey Lizzie, do you want to be in this, since you’re already here? They’d be like, ‘Can we put gum in your hair?’ And I’d be like, ‘OK.’ So it always bothers me when people are like, ‘Why did you decide to start acting after your short acting stint when you were five?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t even know what you’re talking about.”

Despite Mary-Kate and Ashley’s extraordinary fame, Elizabeth attended a private school in Beverly Hills from the ages of 4 to 17, where it wasn’t all that unique to come from a well-known family.

Press: How ‘WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen Brought Her MCU Role To The Small Screen: “It Was Like A Dream”

DEADLINE: When Elizabeth Olsen was first pitched the idea of taking her character Wanda Maximoff into the suburbs with her late android husband Vision, played by Paul Bettany, she wasn’t quite sure how to wrap her head around it, let alone understand the couple’s inexplicable reunion. The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, and creator Jac Schaeffer had told her their plans for WandaVision to kick off the MCU on the new Disney+ platform. They also explained the concept that each episode would be set against classic sitcom tropes from the ’50s to modern-day.

“I was really worried about launching a show like that,” admits Olsen. “The idea that Kevin had about trying to tell this story in a Twilight Zone-y way through sitcom is so twisted and bizarre to me that I could only be excited to see what they would come up with. Another issue was to bring these superhero characters that audiences are used to seeing on big screens onto a small television.”

But timing played a fateful hand with the WandaVision release. The pandemic allowed for people to stay indoors and wax nostalgic on entertainment that made them feel safe. And WandaVision’s creatively misleading retro storytelling not only brought a visual comfort, it also told an underlying story of one woman’s intense grief and how she needed to escape from reality. This zeitgeist-y scenario made the series an instant watercooler hit, not only kicking off an exciting new era of MCU on Disney+ but giving fans the chance to watch sidelined characters become the leading characters in their own major storylines.
