Fact Check: Video Does NOT Show Actress Elizabeth Olsen Saying Sanctions On Russia Were Meaningless Movie Talk

Did American actress Elizabeth Olsen describe the sanctions imposed on Russia by the U.S. and European Union (EU) as meaningless? No, that's not true: In the original video, the actress is shown talking about filmmakers and projects she would like to be a part of, and she does not talk about Russia or economic sanctions.

The claim appeared in a TikTok video (archived here) where it was published by planet.404 on November 3, 2023 with a caption translated into English from Russian by Lead Stories staff that reads:

Famous American actress Elizabeth Olsen expressed her thoughts about the meaninglessness of the sanctions imposed on Russia

This is what the post looked like on TikTok at the time of writing:

The claim suggested that Olsen expressed her opinion on how supposedly ineffective sanctions on Russia were after a conversation with a Russian friend who allegedly showed her scenes of fully stocked Russian supermarkets.

The video shows Elizabeth Olsen appearing in the podcast series "Happy Sad Confused with Josh Horowitz" where they discussed her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, her work, and why she will not ride a rollercoaster again, among other things.

The clip used in the post comes at the 33:25 mark in the podcast when Olsen discusses prominent filmmakers and projects she would like to work with. The actress makes no comments about the trade restrictions on Russia.
