Olivia Munn was just another struggling actress/television personality when she successfully landed a cohosting gig on G4’s ever-popular Attack of the Show in 2006. Olivia has since become one of the most in-demand figures in the network’s history. In addition to her various G4 duties -- including a daily podcast called Around the Net -- Olivia Munn continues to pursue acting roles in her off-hours, including a recurring role on the TV series, Beyond the Break and a role opposite Rob Schneider in Big Stan (2007).
Where do we start? Olivia Munn oozes sensuality, and although she’d surely be a perfect fit within the modeling world, she’s managed to bring an unprecedented amount of raw sexuality to basic cable. And she has appeared within the pages of countless magazines wearing exceedingly little. Olivia Munn was even featured in Playboy as a Babe of the Month, a title that’s been bestowed on such infamous hotties as Christina Aguilera, Katie Holmes and Ali Landry.
Olivia Munn was born on July 2, 1982, in Oklahoma. Her parents divorced while she was still a toddler, and Olivia was soon forced to adopt a nomadic existence after her mother married a man in the Air Force. Although the clan moved from base to base, Olivia spent the majority of her adolescence in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan. Olivia’s passion for the entertainment world has been in place virtually since childhood, and the would-be performer took her first steps toward a career in the spotlight by appearing in a number of local theater productions. Olivia Munn’s growing confidence was cemented once she hit puberty, as the young girl soon found herself blessed with the sort of looks that cause men to stop and stare. She parlayed her beauty into a burgeoning career as a model within the Japanese fashion industry, though it became increasingly clear to Olivia that she wanted to do more with her life than just pose for the cameras. To that end, Olivia moved to Los Angeles in 2004, and began to look for work within the entertainment industry.
