Olivia Munn          

Actress Known for "Newsroom" and "X-Men: Apocalypse"

Olivia Munn is an American actress. She began her professional career in television journalism before becoming an actress. In 2006, Munn starred as Mily Acuna on the series "Beyond the Break". She co-hosted "Attack of the Show!" from 2006 to 2010 and was a correspondent on "The Daily Show" from 2010 to 2011.

Munn has also had supporting roles in various films and television series since 2004. She played the character Sloan Sabbith on the television series "The Newsroom" from 2012 to 2014, and has appeared in the films Magic Mike, the horror film Deliver Us from Evil, the comedy Mortdecai, and X-Men: Apocalypse. In 2017, she provided the voice of Koko in The Lego Ninjago Movie, and also had a lead role on the History Channel series "Six".

In 2011, Munn teamed up with Dosomething.org's Green Your School Challenge. She was a spokesperson for the campaign by filming a PSA regarding the challenge, and sat on the panel of judges that evaluated the entries.

Munn helped PETA with a campaign that ultimately freed a sick elephant from a touring circus. Her blog for The Huffington Post was credited with encouraging fans to contact the USDA on the elephant's behalf. Munn posed for PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign in April 2010, and again in January 2012. In February 2013, Munn fronted a PETA release of new footage showing cruelty to animals in Chinese fur farms.

In November 2017, Munn accused film director Brett Ratner of repeatedly sexually harassing her over a period of several years. Munn has publicly backed MeToo and TimesUp with both personal efforts and public statements, and has been outspoken about demanding that men who are publicly linked to abusers should "go to the back of the line" in Hollywood.
