Embarrassing! Elizabeth Olsen accused of LYING when asked if Danielle Haim was a good actress in Licorice Pizza… as she squirms while taking the lie detector test
After bravely taking part in Vanity Fair’s series of lie detector tests, Elizabeth Olsen got red-faced when one of her answers turned out to be wrong.
The 33-year-old WandaVision star was asked about his former high school friend – musician Danielle Haim – who had a small role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s film Licorice Pizza.
When asked if she thought she was a better actress than Danielle, 33, the Doctor Strange star initially answered honestly, saying with a laugh: ‘Yeah. Sorry Danielle.

However, when asked if she had seen the movie and liked Danielle’s performance, the lie detector kicked in.
‘No, I loved the movie, and I thought she was great in it. But she didn’t have to do much,” Elizabeth said.
The man using the polygraph then cut in, saying, “She’s lying about the movie.”

Trying to figure out if she was lying about liking the movie or Danielle’s performance, Elizabeth said, “Oh, I liked the movie.” Or about his acting? Oh yes, she was fine.
As she grew increasingly uncomfortable with the polygraph claiming she was lying, Elizabeth added: ‘F***, man. Sorry, Danielle. You have been excellent. I don’t know what’s going on. It’s so uncomfortable right now.
The Olsen family member previously revealed she’s known the Haim sisters since high school and said she once considered Danielle the “coolest person on the planet.”
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 began by saying that she was “bullied” by Danielle in high school saying “she was always so cool”.
When asked if she still thinks she’s the coolest person in the world, Elizabeth replied: ‘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 grow up to be like her.
Elsewhere in the fun video, Elizbeth was asked about everything from whether her twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were really one person, to who the better Chris is.
Refuting the plot against her sisters, the actress said she knew they were twins because: “My mum gave birth to both of them, like a caesarean section. And there are plenty of photos forever that prove that there are two in these photos.
Elizabeth also revealed that she does not use any form of social media, including WhatsApp.
Supporting Role: To be fair to Elizabeth, Danielle only had a very minor, supporting role in the film, which was anchored by her sister Alana’s fantastic debut performance.
