According to the "Avengers", one WandaVision scene turned quite awkward instead of steamy. The two had to lock lips in a passionate kiss scene, but unfortunately, Paul had runny nose at the time. To make matters worse, his runny nose dripped into her face.
"He was giving me a kiss in this scene pre-COVID and his snot fell onto my face." Olsen shared (via Daily Mail UK). "And it was the first time in our relationship that Paul was genuinely mad at me," she added.
It can be remembered that she gave a lenghtier explanation of why Paul got angry on "Good Morning America."
"Paul and I have been working together for about 6 years and have never had a legitimate argument ... his runny nose on my face while he was painted purple and kissing me Until I told him that it had dripping into my face, "she shared (via Texas News Today).
Paul did not take it nicely and got all defensive, to her surprise.
Bettany tried to stop Olsen from retelling the story, but the actress already let it out. Olsen tried to help Bettany save face however, by stating the actor has three layers of purple paint on his face and therefore, could not feel his own face at the time.
