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?
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.
Munn appears on the cover of the January 2010 issue of Maxim magazine. She talks about whether she is dating someone and when she discovered she was a nerd.
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.
