Elizabeth Olsen’s recently revealed that she and her husband, Robbie Arnett, had “eloped” prior to the COVID-19 lockout
Although Wanda Vision star Elizabeth Olsen’s is relatively modest for a Hollywood star, the actress has occasionally opened up about her partner, musician Robbie Arnett.
In fact, Olsen surprised her fans when she called Arnett her “husband” in an interview with Variety in June 2021.
“I just noticed that my husband put Little Miss Magic,” Olsen explained, pointing to a book from the Little Miss series that was visible in the background. Olsen continued, “That’s Little Miss Magic. It’s those classic books, but ‘magical’ because of Wanda Vision, because he’s such a cute guy.
When Cuco jokingly asked if Arnett also helped “craft the favors,” Olsen replied, “Gosh, no. I made him breakfast.”
“That was before COVID,” she says in an interview on Sirius The Jess Cagle Show. “I just never talked about it.”
At the time, a source confirmed that the engagement took place after a three-year courtship.
Although they kept the details of their relationship under wraps, Arnett is no stranger to the spotlight and has worked in the entertainment industry for years. Here’s everything you need to know about Elizabeth Olsen’s husband, Robbie Arnett.
He plays in the indie band Milo Greene:(Elizabeth Olsen’s husband)
Arnett is part of the Los Angeles-based band Milo Greene. The singer-songwriter trio released their debut album in 2012, followed by Control in 2015 and Adult Contemporary in 2018.
A few months after she and Olsen were first spotted together, the Marvel actress saluted Arnett’s band on Sway in the Morning in August 2017, telling the hosts, “My boyfriend is in a cool band.”
About the band’s unusual name, Arnett told NPR in 2012, “We wanted a booking agent, a manager, so we set up a Gmail address and started emailing people and calling them on behalf of Milo Greene.” That gimmick helped them get more gigs, and soon the band’s name was Milo Greene.
He and Olsen co-authored a children’s book about self-care:
Olsen and Arnett aren’t just spouses – they’re also co-authors. The two are co-authors of the upcoming children’s book Hattie Harmony: The Worry Detective.
Discussing the book, Olsen told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement, “Robbie and I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce the world to Hattie Harmony.” She continued, “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.”
During a May 2022 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Olsen revealed that she and Arnett plan to turn the book into a series. The actress also credited Arnett with coming up with the book’s title, saying, “That’s my husband. He’s very clever.
On Dec. 7, 2022, the couple posted a video announcing the book’s first sequel on the series’ Instagram page. In the clip, Olsen and Arnett shared that Hattie Harmony: Opening Night was coming in 2023.
His music has been featured in movies and TV shows:
He appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2012 and later performed on Conan O’Brien’s TBS show in 2015.
The band’s music also appeared in the 2013 movie Fun Size, 2020’s The F—-It List, the Netflix series The Santa Clarita Diet, and the TV series Supernatural.
He first stepped out with Olsen in 2017:
Arnett and Olsen made their public debut in September 2017 at the Gersh pre-Emmys party in Los Angeles. The pair had previously sparked dating rumors in March 2017 when they were photographed walking arm-in-arm in New York City.
While little is known about Arnett’s relationship history, Olsen was previously engaged to Narcos star Boyd Holbrook, whom she split with in 2014.
He and Olsen have lived together since 2018:
During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in May 2018, Olsen revealed she’d moved in with Arnett, saying, “Yeah, we live together. … It already happened.” When pressed by the host, Olsen revealed that Arnett had moved into her place “a couple of months ago.”
The next year, Arnett proposed to Olsen with an emerald engagement ring.
He’s involved with Olsen’s charity work:
In 2018, Arnett and Olsen partnered with the nonprofit organization The Latitude Project to host a trip to Nicaragua.
For their 2018 trip, Arnett accompanied his then-girlfriend to Nicaragua with the mission of bringing clean water to a local village after a hurricane hit. In a joint interview shared on the organization’s Instagram, the couple discussed their visit, with Arnett saying, “It was my first trip to Nicaragua, and it was incredibly powerful … It was humbling, and it was something that I’ll never forget.
He and Olsen moved to London in 2021:
During an appearance on the podcast Table Manners with Jessie Ware, Olsen explained, “I’m with my man-guy-partner, and we’re in Richmond. He’s a writer, he’s a musician.”
She continued, “He started just writing, like normal writing, not music. And so, he can do that here, so we’re living this British dream in this house in Richmond right by the water.
He and Olsen value their privacy — and aren’t big on social media:
Both Arnett and Olsen are extremely private when it comes to their personal lives, and they aren’t big on using social media. While Arnett has an active Instagram account, the musician rarely posts updates. In fact, Arnett currently only has one post on his feed — a clip of Olsen promoting their children’s book on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
As for Olsen, the actress was previously on Instagram but deleted her account in 2020. She later told Glamour UK that she was “never going back to social media.”
“[I thought] Wait, why am I even trying to create a character version of myself and put it out in the world?,” Olsen shared, saying that the whole thing made her “uncomfortable.”
“And so during the pandemic, I was like, Oh this is just not for me. And I just got rid of it,” she said.
