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.

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. Who says guys are the only ones who can get better with age? We're gonna turn that myth around if we share what we learn with each other. So here are 4 skin tips I've learned just over this past year that really helped the texture and shape of my face. Left Pic: 1 year ago. Right Pic: Last month. 1. I lost 12 pounds this past year while training for Xmen. I kept it off by coming up w/an hour workout I do a few times a week. The weight loss leaned out my cheeks and jawline. Working out is also great for your skin because it increases blood flow to your face which helps rejuvenate. 2. Reshaped my brows. I do my own brows and always thought they were supposed to have a high arch. Then a facialist pointed out to me that I was shaping my brows into a frown. So I let the top of my brows grow in (which is never fun because it looks spotty for a few weeks) and then I plucked the bottom. That gave my brows a more horizontal angle and instantly brightened my eyes. 3. Got rid of sunspots. I love my freckles. But over the past couple of years I've seen more come up and merge with other freckles to make large dark spots. Dark spots prevent your skin from reflecting light and gives you a dull complexion. So for the past year I've been diligently using @Proactiv Mark Fading Pads. I wipe my face with one every night and now my face has a more even tone and the large spots aren't as noticeable. 4. I've talked about this before and I still stand by it: Japanese potatoes that are high in Hyaluronic Acid help keep wrinkles away. Look up this video: "Connie Chung Yuzihara" to learn all about it. There are Hyaluronic Acid pills and vitamins but I think that the best way to get it in your system is by eating them in foods that naturally have them. I'm still looking into what gets rid of the lines that develop around your neck. I think it has to do with tension and acupuncture might be the answer. When I find out more, I'll let you know. 👯👍
