Elizabeth Mitchell Reveals Why ‘Witch Hunt’ Role Is A ‘Gift’ & Weighs In On Those ‘OBX’ Theories

Elizabeth Mitchell stars in the new film ‘Witch Hunt’ and spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL about playing a ‘quiet’ hero and what she thinks about those insane ‘Outer Banks’ theories regarding Carla!

Elizabeth Mitchell is one busy woman these days. Following the premiere of Outer Banks season 2, she is now starring in the film Witch Hunt, which is now available on Digital and On Demand. Elizabeth explained in our EXCLUSIVE interview why she was drawn to the film.

“I got to work with Elle [Callahan], and I got to work with Gideon [Adlon]. I was excited about working with both of them,” Elizabeth told HollywoodLife. “They’re a strong, independent, amazing filmmaker and actor. I also read the scripts, and I love the script. I love the character. I find playing heroes to be such a gift. It falls into that whole thing where we always want to be the good guy. I was drawn to Martha because I find those quiet, true heroes exciting. I really enjoy playing them, especially the quiet ones who ask for nothing in return. A mother’s love kind of thing. They fascinate me for sure. So those were all the myriad of things that brought me to this project. It was fun, the idea of working with so many women as well.”

Her character, Martha, runs a safe house for witches and has to pretend to be something she’s not. “She has to pretend to go along with the world as is. And it’s broken, obviously, and she has to straddle the line of both. She has to be a convincing member of her society in order to keep her family safe and also the women that she protects safe. So there are quite a few hats. She’s obviously a very dedicated mother.”

However, the movie is also “really scary,” according to Elizabeth. “We find out at the end the why of why she’s so certain about what she’s doing and why she’s so dedicated to it. It’s heartbreaking and fascinating and all those good things,” she added.

Elizabeth was also drawn to the role because of the parallels the film has to the real world. “As a woman in our world today, what really was interesting to me is women and women’s power and what happens when women have power and who is afraid of that,” Elizabeth explained. “How does that get policed? What happens to our freedom? That’s something that was fascinating to me and one of the reasons that I thought it kind of drew some interesting parallels. But I do think there’s something in here for everyone to take away.”

During the summer, Outer Banks took over as one of the top Netflix shows. Elizabeth made her grand entrance as Carla Limbrey in season 2, and fans have come up with a ton of theories. One theory is that Carla is related to John B. Another is that John B’s bandana is actually the shroud Carla wants to get her hands on. Elizabeth weighed in on the bandana-shroud theory.

“Wouldn’t that be completely amazing? It would make sense. I have to say the Pogues are extremely gifted with the way they walk through life. Maybe they’ve been walking around with the shroud all along,” Elizabeth said.

Outer Banks hasn’t been renewed for season 3 yet, but Elizabeth is already totally down to come back. “I had so much fun playing with absolutely everybody,” she gushed. “I would love to do it again. I mean, there’s something fun about joining an established show where everybody has already made it amazing because that means you get to come in and play. I would love to join them anytime.”

Tiffany Haddish and Common reportedly decided to part ways after she confirmed they were dating in Aug. 2020.

Tiffany Haddish, 41, and Common, 49, have broken up. The lovebirds split because their lives are just too “busy” right now, according to one source. “They are never in the same city together and both of them are just too busy for a serious relationship,” the source told PEOPLE on Nov. 29.

The news comes more than a year after Tiffany confirmed they were dating in an interview on Steve-O‘s podcast, Steve-O’s Wild Ride. “I am in a relationship,” the Girls Trip star said before revealing it was with Common. She also joked about their similarly shaved heads at the time. “Yeah, we’re twins now,” she said.

HollywoodLife has reached out to both Tiffany and Common’s reps about their reported split but have yet to receive a response.

Before their reported breakup, Tiffany and Common kept their romance pretty private but were occasionally seen out and about together. The comedian also called the relationship the “best” she’s ever been in during her interview with Steve-O. “It’s the best relationship I’ve ever been in,” she said. “I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it. I’m just way happier and it’s like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back. It really seems like he does anyway. And I love it. I love him!”

In March 2021, she also told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that “things” were “going really well” between them.

Tiffany and Common first met on the set of The Kitchen in 2019 and became friends at first. [It] “wasn’t anything sexual or anything like that because my eyes were set on something else,” she admitted to Steve-O. She further explained that it was only after a virtual date on Bumble that they started a relationship. “And then he got tested for everything, I got tested for everything and yeah, we’ve been f***ing,” she said.

Not too long after she confirmed their romance, Common gushed over Tiffany during an interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan. He called her a “wonderful woman, a queen, and just a beautiful person” and added, “You know, I just care for her a lot, enjoy her, and am grateful to have her in my life. I’m happy.”

Zendaya Stuns In Backless Black Gown For 2021 Ballon d’Or Event With Tom Holland

Zendaya and Tom Holland were photographed while looking incredible and posing on the red carpet of the special event in Paris, France.

Zendaya, 25, turned heads on Nov. 29 when she showed up to the 2021 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in a gorgeous black gown that revealed skin in the back. The actress was joined by her reported boyfriend Tom Holland, 25, who wore a classic black and white tuxedo, as she stepped outside a car in Paris, France, and was photographed and filmed while walking and later posing on the red carpet. She looked gorgeous as she confidently stood in front of the various cameras and flaunted her fashion choice, which featured a tied section in the back.

The beauty added black heels to the look and wore her long locks up in a style that included a side part. She also rocked thick hoop earrings and subtle classic makeup that brought out some of her best facial features.

The star-studded event Zendaya and Tom attended is presented by France Football and recognizes some of the best footballers around the world. Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain football received his seventh Ballon d’Or award at the ceremony after he and Argentina won Copa America earlier this year. He was one of the many impressive athletes to show up to the event with his family and looked great.

Zendaya and Tom’s appearance at Ballon d’Or comes after they were seen reuniting for a dinner date in Paris on Nov. 28. They enjoyed food at France’s Le Giraffe restaurant and were dressed in warm fashionable outfits as they bundled up outside of the location. They didn’t pay much attention to cameras and seemed to want to keep a low profile as they were seen walking separately.

The Spider-Man stars first sparked romance rumors when they were seen kissing in July 2021. Since then, they’ve been pretty private about their life together and Tom even touched upon it in an interview with GQ this month. “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world,” he told the outlet. “This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”

Kim Kardashian Breaks Silence On Virgil Abloh’s Death: We ‘Will Miss You So Much’

Following the shocking death of Virgil Abloh, Kim Kardashian penned a touching tribute to the trailblazing fashion designer, saying that he was ‘taken away so early.’

The fashion and music world was left in mourning on Sunday (Nov. 28), following news that Virgil Abloh had passed away at age 41 after a two-year battle with a “rare, aggressive form” of cancer. Shortly after the announcement of Virgil’s death, the tributes from celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Gigi Hadid, and others started flowing in. For Kim Kardashian, she finally found the words to express her sadness and heartache on Monday (Nov. 29). Kim, 41, who became close to Virgil thanks to his creative partnership with Kanye West, posted an emotional tribute to her Instagram. “God doesn’t make mistakes. I know that but I still can’t help but ask why. Why Virgil?! Why him so soon?”

“[It’s simply hard to understand why,” continued Kim. “I have a hard time understanding why so many pure souls were taken away so early. Virgil- you were always so gentle, kind and calm. You somehow made time for everyone. We also talked about your superpower of calmness often. You always gave so much of yourself to the world because you wanted it to be doper. This one is hard to process. I can’t even believe I am writing this… We will miss you so much Virgil and love you so much. Also I would love to send so much love to his wife Shannon. Because you loved and supported Virgil the way that you did, he was able to give so much of himself everyone else. So thank you truly for sharing him with us the way that you did. Virgil’s legacy will live on forever through Shannon, Lowe and Grey.”

Kanye, 44, honored his friend and collaborator during his Nov. 28 edition of his Sunday Service. At t the end of the livestream performance, a title card read, “In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, the creative director of Donda.” Kanye and Virgil first met in the early 2000s when he met with Ye’s then-manager John Monopoly, per Vogue. The two began working together at that point. In 2009, they worked as interns at Fendi in Rome. “I was really impressed with how [Abloh and West] brought a whole new vibe to the studio and were disruptive in the best way, “Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke said, “Virgil could create a metaphor and a new vocabulary to describe something as old-school as Fendi.” In 2010, Virgil officially assumed the role of Creative Director at Donda, Ye’s creative agency. He was the art director for Watch The Throne, which earned him a Grammy Nomination.

Virgil and Kanye clashed after Abloh left Donda to become the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collections. “When they say he was my creative director, that’s incorrect. He was a creative collaborator,” Kanye told Axel Vervoordt in a conversation for The Hollywood Reporter in 2018. “I had been dealing with a very heavy concept this week that I couldn’t get out of my head… It’s not bad or good. It’s my creative collaborator being the head of Louis Vuitton.” However, whatever beef Virgil and Ye had, they squashed it by mid-2018. When Virgil presented his first menswear collection during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, Kanye broke down in joyful tears for his friend, per Entertainment Tonight.

The official social media pages for Virgil, Louis Vuitton, Off-White (Virgil’s fashion house) shared the news of his death, saying that he battled cardiac angiosarcoma “privately since his diagnosis in 2019, undergoing numerous challenging treatments, all while helming several significant institutions that span fashion, art, and culture.” Many of Virgil’s friends and celebrity clients paid tribute to him after his death. Virgil designed a wedding dress for Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), and she called him a “once in a generation creative mind.” Victoria Beckham said he was a “true inspiration in so many ways.” Khloé Kardashian posted a series of white dove emojis, followed by a string of broken heart emojis. Kris Jenner sent all her love to “his beautiful family,” while Kendall Jenner said that her friend was “bright,” “kind,” and “full of love.”
