Jake Gyllenhaal called Elizabeth Olsen’s Marvel character Scarlet Witch an A*hole
Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the most remarkable actors who has given some jaw-dropping performances in the past years. He plays the role of a supervillain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-man franchise. He played Quentin Beck aka Mysterio in 2019’s Tom Holland film, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The actor recently made a snarky remark on Elizabeth Olsen, who plays the role of Wanda Maximoff.
Gyllenhaal and Olsen have never worked together to date, but the fans would certainly like to see Wanda come face-to-face with Mysterio at some point in the future. With the concept of the multiverse, collaborations are an endless possibility. In a recent interview, The Day After Tomorrow actor accidentally dissed Elisabeth Olsen.
The Mysterio actor made an appearance on the Hot One‘s Season 20 finale. As he tried the spicy wings of death sauce, he saw Wet Ones and toothpicks on the side of the table. He asked,
“What a*shole used a f*ckin’ toothpick?”
The host Sean Evans revealed that it was Scarlet Witch actor Elizabeth Olsen, who used toothpicks as well as Wet Ones. Gyllenhaal laughed and redacted his comment, as she is a fellow MCU actress.
Jake Gyllenhall immediately apologized for the comment,
“Oh, sorry, Elizabeth. She’s like, literally the least a*shole I’ve ever met, so I’m sorry.”
Referring to the hottest sauce in the spread, the Last Dab of Apollo, he said,
“Gimme 14 of the Apollos, I’m sorry.”
The actor had to try different types of spicy sauces while answering questions in the interview.
