Kathryn Hahn’s understated brilliance recently received a much-needed boost with her appearance as the primary antagonist in the Marvel x Disney+ series WandaVision. Hahn’s character, a deceptively cunning witch, stands out in her individual capacity despite having limited screen time to work with and even less time to build her villainous storyline.
However, the Purple Witch outshines her co-stars in every frame and dispensing evil with unchecked magnanimity. While the Parks and Recreation star prepares to direct her own Agatha Harness project at MCU, Kathryn Hahn fills her resume with high-profile roles like that in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
Knives Out is an all-time favourite among the small number of unquestionably good Netflix projects that come out each year. The ensemble film evokes the era of Christiesque whodunit narrative that manages to constantly up the pace with its exceedingly entertaining chaos and characteristic eccentricities.
It is loved by all and honoured as a comfort film by many. The dark-wooded mansion mystery film, along with its well-deserved sequel — Glass Onion — is now on its way to theatres, bringing with it a second slew of an ensemble cast, one of whom is MCU star Kathryn Hahn.
Daniel Craig, the beloved 007 who brought the James Bond franchise out of its chauvinistic, misogynist depths and gave it a long-overdue makeover, has been married to Rachel Weisz, the star of The Mummy, since 2011. And he was fortunate enough not to have witnessed Kathryn Hahn’s schoolgirl crush on Weisz firsthand, saving both parties from a nerve-racking meet and greet.
Hahn said, “Woah, I have such a crush on your wife – what am I gonna say to you?”
What do you think of this situation? Sound off in the comments.
