A complete 180 from Palmer, buzzed-about WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen talked with Grazia about why she decided to delete her Instagram after giving it a quick try. 

“I didn’t find it very organic to who I am as a person,” Olsen revealed. “I found some joy in putting up silly videos, but I think the main reason I stopped — not I think, I know the main reason why I stopped — was because of the organization in my brain.”
