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.”

@Dharma:

No, not having any talent is what makes her not have any talent. Her attention whoring and playing it up to the oglers is just icing on the cake.

Her “skits” consisted of wearing anime and sci-fi constumes, stuffing phallic objects into her mouth, letting Kevin Pereira make suggestive comments about her, and generally whoring herself around like the piece of ass she is. She has never been funny, and everything she ever touched has been a colossal AIDS sandwich.

Just a patriarchal woman. And her name is Lisa. Boring like her. Poor Lisa

is she really going to be on the daily show from now on? that’s really sad :(

AND she’s 30 but still acting like a 19 year old :(

@Lohan:

Cans? what cans? her pictures in Maxim were just, …..nah..fuget about it..
