Munn appears on the cover of the November 2014 issue of Self magazine. She talks about The Newsroom, kindergarten, and how she stays in shape.

I remember being in kindergarten and him telling me it was stupid to think I could even be an actress. He said it in a very factual way. He was like, ‘You’d have to be beautiful, smart and talented. And you’re not.’ I just thought, If somebody else can do it, why can’t I?

Olivia Munn interview


Elle Magazine interviews Munn about peoples opinions on whether or not she deserves her success.

I think there is a conversation that stems from the fact that I didn’t take a normal path to get here. I came out to LA and I didn’t know anybody. I grew up in a military family of five kids. We didn’t have a lot of money. My mom didn’t encourage me to go into theater or do any of those things. I’m first generation American. I came out to California, and I tried to do the best with the opportunities I was given. I don’t think the discussion is really about whether or not I’m pretty, or whether I can be considered smart and funny.

I think it was eighth grade. I was in a military family, so by the time I was 13 I’d lived in six different places. I remember looking around that year and realizing that the one group that always takes you in is the geeks.
