Oh face it, you know your not checking this out for the article are you? Don’t blame you, neither would I. Olivia Munn appears on the cover of the new Marc Ecko’s Complex in all of her nerdy and hot glory. Fans of G4 have known what the rest of the world has been missing for a long time.
If you can’t get enough of Ms. Munn on G4, then you can check her out in two movie roles this year. The first is Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carell. The other role is in this little movie you may have heard about, Iron Man 2. Oh yes, that Iron Man 2. Here is a taste of the interview with Olivia:
You’re in two gigantic movies this year. Let’s talk about Iron Man 2 first because it’s fucking Iron Man 2.
Olivia Munn: Actually, they just gave me another role in the film. I had to reshoot all of my scenes.
Wait, didn’t they start filming like last year or something?
Olivia Munn: Yeah, but as they started to edit they realized it was becoming darker than what they’d expected and what my scenes had allowed for. My parts were lighthearted and comedic.
Olivia Munn: Jon Favreau called and was like, “I’ve got good news and bad news: This is what’s happening in editing but we all really like you.” Marvel and Jon had to add another character from the Marvel universe to keep me included.
I need details! Tell us anything about the old or new role.
Olivia Munn: I can’t talk specifics because it’s Iron Man 2! But when they call, you say, “OK, I’m there. What do you need?” You don’t say, “Who is this Marvel? Did you call my agent? Is FIJI Water on set?” Everyone knows who the stars are in this movie. I’m not one of them and I understand the editing process. Some things don’t work out.
What if you’d stayed on the cutting room floor?
Olivia Munn: I would’ve started crying.
Comic-Con would not have been pretty. Your fans would’ve bugged.
Olivia Munn: My Chinese mother would have gone absolutely ballistic. She would’ve thrown shoes. Curling irons. She would’ve been physically looking for Jon Favreau.
And then you’re in Date Night starring Tina Fey, Steve Carell, every comedian in the free world—and Ray Liotta, who is perhaps the best creepy-dude in funny movies ever.
Olivia Munn: Ray Liotta is strange. I have a friend who had a meeting with him and he showed up in all red. Full-on, head-to-toe red. A red Adidas tracksuit with a red hat and sunglasses that he wore the entire time. It was dope. I wish I’d been there.
To catch the rest of the article you need to pick up a copy of Marc Ecko’s Complex and if you want to see more of Olivia Munn then check out G4. I for one can’t wait for Iron Man 2. No animals were harmed in this photo shoot.
