    Elizabeth Olsen Shared Why She Still Hasn't Watched "Doctor Strange," And Her Reason Actually Makes A Lot Of Sense

    It's been 56 days since the movie arrived in theaters.

    At this point, it feels like everyone has seen Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but not Elizabeth Olsen.

    Of course, she stars in the movie as villain Wanda Maximoff.

    During an appearance on The Tonight Show, she explained the reason she still hasn't seen it, more than two months after its release.

    At first, she had a cold that prevented her from attending the premiere.

    As she recovered, Disney sent her a movie screener so she could watch it, but it had a watermark that was too "distracting" to sit through.

    “I’m not one of those [people who don't watch their own movies],” she explained. “I’m one of those people who likes to study something so I can figure out how to make it better... I had a cold when we had the premiere, and I didn’t want to sit through it. And so I asked them to send me a copy so I could watch it, and it had my name on it and it had the time that I was watching it, and I didn’t want to watch it like that."

    "It was just distracting," she added.

    Yeah, imagine trying to watch a movie like Doctor Strange with a huge watermark crowding your view. Nope — I'd need it in top quality to see it in all of its glory, too.

    At least the movie is now on Disney+, so hopefully she can check it out soon!
