Olivia Munn: I Turned Down Deadpool Role


Before taking on the role of Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, actress Olivia Munn had one question. Is there a fight scene? That same question is at the root of why she turned down a role in another FOX and Marvel property, that being the massively successful Deadpool. "Munn says she didn’t want to be the girlfriend. “I said, ‘Is there a fight scene?’ ” Munn says of her early meetings with the X-Men: Apocalypse people. Yet Munn couldn’t shake the feeling that there might be too much talking and not enough action.

  • Olivia Munn Paid High Price For New Role

    Olivia Munn isn’t pleased about having to pay for her own expenses to appear in a cameo role in the upcoming Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, Ocean’s Eight. In an interview with the SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio (via The Wrap), Munn says she filmed a cameo for Ocean’s Eight, but was left footing the bill. For a scene in the film that takes place at the annual Met Gala in New York City (aka the biggest night in fashion), Munn says she purchased her own wardrobe, as well as hair and makeup services. Following the event, Munn says she submitted invoices to the Warner Bros. to cover the costs, but got the invoices back from the production unpaid Munn shared, “It’s a whole scene at the Met Ball and they’re like, ‘Do your own glam.’ I got the dress, all that, and then you submit the bills for it because I’m part of your movie … But the bills come right back to you. It actually cost me money to be in ‘Ocean’s Eight.’”
