Olivia Munn Model and Actress
She became an intern at the NBC affiliate in Tulsa and later moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. In 2004, Munn interned at Fox Sports Networks and worked as a sideline reporter for college football and women’s basketball. She has gone on to say that she disliked the experience, explaining, “I was trying to be something I wasn’t, and that made me really uncomfortable on live TV.”
Soon after she moved to Los Angeles, Munn was cast in a small role in the direct-to-video horror film Scarecrow Gone Wild. She appeared in rock band Zebrahead’s music video for their song “Hello Tomorrow” as the love interest of the lead singer Justin Mauriello. Munn also appeared in National Lampoon’s Strip Poker, which was filmed at Hedonism II, a naturist resort in Negril, Jamaica, with Kato Kaelin. The films aired on DirecTV and In Demand pay-per-view.
In late 2005, Munn began her role as teen surfer Mily Acuna over two seasons of the television drama Beyond the Break on The N network. She enjoys surfing and continues to practice the sport. She originally auditioned for the role of Kai Kealoha, but the producers wanted a “local girl”.
She also appeared in the film The Road to Canyon Lake. In 2006, Munn moved on to the G4 network, where she began co-hosting Attack of the Show! with Kevin Pereira on 10 April. She replaced departing host Sarah Lane.
The network, devoted to the world of video games and the video games lifestyle, was at first hesitant to hire Munn. Although she admits video games were her “weak point”, she was confident in her technical knowledge.
On the show, Munn was featured with journalist Anna David in a segment called “In Your Pants”, which deals with sex and relationship questions from viewers. While working on Attack of the Show!, Munn hosted Formula D, a now-defunct program about American drift racing, and an online podcast called Around the Net, formerly known as The Daily Nut, for G4.
Munn left Attack of the Show! in December 2010 and was replaced by Candace Bailey. Munn appeared in the Rob Schneider film Big Stan (2007). She played Schneider’s character’s receptionist Maria. Munn had a significant role in the horror film Insanitarium in which she played a nurse at an insane asylum.
She had roles in the films Date Night (2010) and Iron Man 2 (2010). Robert Downey, Jr. praised Munn for her improvisation skills and led the crew in a round of applause. Munn hosted Microsoft’s Bing-a-thon, an advertisement on Hulu for the Microsoft search-engine Bing, on 8 June 2009, alongside Jason Sudeikis.
Munn appeared in ABC Family’s Greek, portraying Cappie’s love interest, Lana. In May 2010, NBC announced that Munn would star on the television series Perfect Couples. The half-hour romantic comedy premiered on January 20, 2011. The series was canceled before it completed its first season run.
On June 3, 2010, Munn debuted in her new role as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Her hiring prompted criticism from Irin Carmon of Jezebel, who questioned Munn’s credentials and said the show’s production was sexist for hiring Munn, whom Carmon said was a sex symbol.
Carmon said Munn’s hiring was a perpetuation of the show production office’s history as a male-dominated atmosphere marginalizing and alienating to women. A group of thirty-two female Daily Show production staff members said Carmon’s piece as inaccurate and misinformed.
Munn said that Carmon’s assertion was an insult both to her and to the rest of the Daily Show staff. She went on to appear in 16 more episodes as a correspondent, with TV Guide naming her signature segment “Tiger Mothering,” in which she mocked the high expectations of Chinese mothers, in part by interviewing her own mother.
Her last episode as a correspondent aired on September 2, 2011. She returned for a brief segment in host Jon Stewart’s final show on August 6, 2015. In 2010, Munn guest-starred on NBC’s comedy-drama Chuck as a CIA agent. In 2011, Munn appeared in the comedy film I Don’t Know How She Does It (2011) as Momo.
In 2012, Munn had a leading role in The Babymakers, a minor role in Freeloaders, and appeared in Magic Mike, directed by Steven Soderbergh. She played Sloan Sabbith on HBO’s drama series The Newsroom. She also appeared as Angie, Nick’s stripper girlfriend, in three episodes in Season Two of FOX’s sitcom New Girl.
Munn served as a correspondent in “True Colors,” the May 12, 2014 episode of the Showtime documentary series Years of Living Dangerously, in which she interviewed Washington State Governor Jay Inslee about his efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in his home state.
As of June 2014, Munn has been hired as the main promoter of Proactiv acne cleanser products starring in several commercials and one infomercial for the product. The commercials show Munn experiencing acne herself. Since January 2015, she has been the voice of the character Phoebe Callisto on the Disney Junior animated series Miles from Tomorrowland.
In 2016, Munn was cast as Elizabeth Braddock /Psylocke (one of Apocalypse’s Four Horsemen) in X-Men: Apocalypse. She also had a starring role in the television series Six as a CIA operative and appeared on Season 13 of America’s Got Talent as a guest judge in the season’s second Judge Cuts episode.
Munn hosted Microsoft’s Bing-a-thon, an advertisement on Hulu for the Microsoft search-engine Bing, on June 8, 2009, alongside Jason Sudeikis and subsequently appeared on such shows as Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, NBC’s Chuck and the film Magic Mike.

Olivia Munn Investments
Olivia Munn has made a number of very smart investments. She was an early investor in Uber and a dog walking app Wag. She also invested in a jerky company called “Chef’s Cut Real Jerky” and Blue Bottle Coffee, which was eventually acquired by Nestle.
Olivia Munn Charity work
In 2011, Munn teamed up with Dosomething.org’s Green Your School Challenge. She was a spokesperson for the campaign by filming a PSA regarding the challenge and sat on the panel of judges that evaluated the entries. Munn helped PETA with a campaign that ultimately freed a sick elephant from a touring circus.
Her blog for The Huffington Post was credited with encouraging fans to contact the USDA on the elephant’s behalf. Munn posed for PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign in April 2010, and again in January 2012. In February 2013, Munn fronted a PETA release of new footage showing cruelty to animals in Chinese fur farms.
Olivia Munn X-Men|Psylocke
X-Men Apocalypse reintroduced Psylocke with great fanfare by casting Olivia Munn as the fan-favorite telepathic ninja. Munn is one of the few stars from Apocalypse who won’t be returning for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada, Munn acknowledged her absence from the film and explained why she couldn’t return.
Munn revealed some frustrations she experienced on the set of the 2016 superhero film. Specifically, Munn was irked at the fact that director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg apparently didn’t know a great deal about her Marvel character, Psylocke.
While participating in an “Actually Me” video for GQ, Munn was asked on social media if she was frightened by how “crazy” some fans get over film adaptations of comic books. She replied, “No, because I get like that too.”
“I think that people wouldn’t get so crazy if it was just a really great movie,” Munn continued. “When I was doing X-Men, I was actually surprised that the director [Singer] and the writer [Kinberg] didn’t even know that Psylocke had a twin brother. And I had to talk to them about a lot of different things about Psylocke and some other parts of the world that they didn’t know and that, as a fan, was very frustrating.”
In the events of the film, Munn’s Psylocke serves as a bodyguard to Tómas Lemarquis’ Caliban before being recruited by Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse as one of the villain’s “Four Horsemen” alongside Magneto, Angel and Storm. The X-Men ultimately defeat Apocalypse, with Psylocke escaping amidst the chaos. The character did not return for Dark Phoenix.
If Munn’s comments are anything to go on, it appears the actress wasn’t particularly happy with how things played out for Psylocke was portrayed in Apocalypse. Notably, she has also had a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing as reporter Chess Roberts in Iron Man 2 (a fact she also references in the video.)
“I can’t say anything because last time I said a little bit they sent me a note. But I’m not in it,” said Munn. “I was filming [The Predator] at the time so there wasn’t time for me to film it and so I’m not in it. I will tell you guys.” As for the “note” referenced by Munn, it’s probably because she previously told Collider that Dark Phoenix was “like a two-parter,” before adding “I don’t know why people have to be so secretive.”
