Olivia Munn has all the makings of a star: allure, humor, depth, beauty, and talent. Most recently, Olivia was as ‘Sloan Sabbith’ on Aaron Sorkin’s HBO series, The Newsroom. She will next join the blockbuster franchise X:Men, starring as ‘Psylocke’ in the 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse.
Olivia made her television debut as the host of the popular G4 program, Attack of the Show, which received shout outs in publications such as Entertainment Weekly for being, “fast, funny and informative.” Other magazines have followed suit, including TV Guide and Rolling Stone, which both singled out Munn’s contributions and talents as a defining catalyst behind the show’s success. Munn has continued to build on her growing acting resume with roles in Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. She was also a regular correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2009, Olivia was featured in Entertainment Weekly’s annual “Must List” issue.
Olivia’s other film credits include Iron Man 2, Date Night, The Slammin’ Salmon and Freeloaders. She made her TV series debut on the N series, Beyond the Break, which tackled the world of female pro-surfers. She was a guest star on Chuck, Greek and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
In 2010, Olivia also co-authored a book Suck It, Wonder Woman: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek. In the book, Olivia shares advice and personal stories of her road to success in Hollywood using her uniquely frank and charming wit.
To add to her acting resume, Olivia has also booked modeling print campaigns for Nike, Pepsi, and Neutrogena as well as several magazine covers.
In addition to these “day jobs”, Olivia has participated in several charity movements including DoSomething.org’s Green Your School Challenge and PETA, where she was featured in their highly successful “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign in April of 2010 and again in January of 2012.
Olivia initially developed a love for performance and theatre back in Oklahoma, starring in such plays as Ophelia, Memoirs of a Geisha and Loves Labours Lost. But it was the enticement of television and film that brought Olivia out to Los Angeles. Olivia has quickly established herself as an extremely versatile and driven talent, with the charisma and intelligence for a successful career.
