    Default Olivia Munn - DaMan Magazine - April/May 2010

    Olivia Munn is black, white and classy all over in this new fashion spread from DaMan magazine (with Vampire Diaries hunk Paul Wesley on the cover).
    The 29-year-old stunner shares with the mag that she’s half-Chinese (born in America, but lived in Japan for most of her childhood because her stepfather was in the U.S. Air Force). Olivia explains how she got into acting as a kid in Japan.
    She shared, “I basically begged my mom to let me do it all. I learned to barter at an early age. I had to take karate and piano (to perpetuate the Asian stereotype) and hated it. Not that I really hated the activities, I just hated being told what to do. So, then I learned to negotiate with my mom. I said I would do well at all my piano recitals and make sure to get new belts in karate if she let me take theater classes. How could she turn down that offer? She got what she wanted: a karate-chopping, piano-playing daughter. And I got what I wanted: to act.”
    When asked if she always wanted to get into showbiz, Olivia replied, “I spent a lot of time running around after my big brother and emulating him. One day, I was watching my favorite show, Punky Brewster, and I asked my mom to help me be her friend. Punky (actress
    Soleil Moon Frye) looked exactly like me: brown pigtails, freckles, tomboy. [My mom] explained to me that [Punky] wasn’t real, just an actress. That’s when I knew that I wanted to do what Punky Brewster did. Of course, when I told my Asian mother I wanted to be an actress, she
    immediately shot it down telling me ‘You be lawyer or doctor! No actress!’ But I never let that deter me. I always believed if someone else could do it, I could too, if I worked hard enough.”
    Olivia’s breakout performance in Iron Man 2 will hit theaters on May 8. She stars alongside Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mickey Rourke, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
    FYI: Ms. Munn is wearing a Preen jacket and a PH8 tank.
