Olivia Munn: I Didn't Book ‘Daily Show’ Because I'm A Woman

Former videogame show host Olivia Munn is the newest regular correspondent on Jon Stewart‘s The Daily Show.

But did she score the gig because she’s a woman? (Jezebel claims The Daily Show has a “woman problem”.)

“When I go into this situation, I don’t think, ‘Oh, great. I’m a woman. This is awesome,’” Olivia told HollywoodLife. “I think, ‘F— yeah, I worked my a– off and somebody recognized it. This is great!’”

“We’re all human beings in this world,” she continued. “We’re all trying to make it from point A to point B, and just trying to f—ing make it. So I think it’s really a disservice to all women when there are women out there who try to compartmentalize us as human beings, saying ‘women’ and ‘men,’ because I’m just out there… I never tried to use anything besides my own sweat and blood and talent to get somewhere.”
