In "The Dropout", Amanda Seyfried plays Elizabeth Holmes, a disgraced biotech businesswoman. Seyfried was nominated for an Emmy for her depiction of Holmes, who is currently facing punishment after being found guilty of numerous charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud.

The actress simply wants to learn more about WeWork CEO Adam Neumann's wife since she is a "mystery." "I don't know what happened to her just before she met the man that would wind up defining so much of her life," Anne explained.

If Elle Fanning ever met Michelle Carter in real life, she'd ask just one question: Why did you fill in your eyebrows so dark?
It's something that the actress has been thinking about since playing Michelle, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017, in the Hulu limited series "The Girl From Plainville". "I think the harsh eyebrows really did a lot," she shared during a roundtable discussion with Entertainment Weekly's The Awardist podcast. "She didn't show a lot of emotion and had like kind of those smirks and things - and I'm curious why she drew them on."
