The actress showed off her fighting skills in X-Men: Apocalypse , spending months training to play the ass-kicking, telepathic mutant Psylocke. You always see in movies that the guys just automatically know how to use it and the girls, they have to kind of fumble through it. Shane and I were on the same page about that immediately. It has its own ensemble with some amazing actors. She actually put her money where her mouth is. It was just super-tender with awesome flavors, and it really blew me away because it tasted like steak in a bag.

Why Olivia Munn is an Evil Genius
Funny and perfectly self-deprecating , Olivia cracks wise on diets, exercise, and-yes-the ex. I was constantly the new girl, which was really hard because people weren't welcoming to me. Walking into a cafeteria was literally like going onto a battle- field. But aren't a lot of comics essentially tragic clowns, smiling on the outside, crying on the inside? I'm actually sitting in a dark closet sobbing as we speak.
This was best demonstrated by an episode of Attack of the Show where she literally jumped into a giant pie wearing a maid outfit because she lost a bet or it was the Fourth of July or some other inane reason to combine maids with pies. I expect this trend to continue, as more and more pretty ladies with a half a brain start to figure out the benefits of mass nerd appeal. G4 and SpikeTV have a stable of girls ready to be the next Munn, but no one has gone to the same extent as her, total devotion to the craft. The infamous pie-jumping-in-a-maid-outfit-because-she-lost-some-sort-of-bet-or-something-like-that skit that made me love and loathe her at the same time. I think I'm a part of the first generation of journalists to skip print media entirely, and I've learned a lot these last few years at Forbes.
