Every guy should be afraid of Olivia Munn because she has proven that she can kick your ass.
The 35-year-old actress revealed to Entertainment Tonight at the Sci-Tech Awards that she refused to have a stunt double during the filming of “X-Men: Apocalypse.”
Munn, who plays the mutant Psylocke, explained, “That was me from the beginning to the end. That was a really cool thing to feel like when I showed up on set I was like, “Oh wait, I can do this! Throw me onto a wire, give me a sword – I’m good!'”
“The Newsroom” star added she trained for about six or seven hours per day in preparation for the movie. Her routine included exercises in Tae Kwon Do, sword fighting and wirework.
“Psylocke is such a powerful, lethal character. It was important to me that I was able to do all of the stunts because the more believable it is, the better it is for the audience — and the only way to make it believable is for me to actually do it,” said Munn.
Psylocke is an assassin who takes out her targets using her telekinetic and telepathic abilities, Cinema Blend wrote.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” hits theaters on May 27, 2016. In the latest trailer of the movie, Munn’s character was seen shredding a car in half.
Munn shared a picture of her taken a year ago side by side one taken last month. In the photo, the actress noticeably has different looks.
According to Munn, she just lost weight, did research about aging naturally, reshaped her eyebrows and also found magical potatoes high in hyaluronic acid.
“Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I love research. Convinced that there’s got to be natural, healthy ways (ie not only the rich and connected can do it) to keep your skin from aging, I do lots of research,” she wrote.
