That same day, Olivia opened up about having no problem standing up to directors while starring in HBO‘s The Newsroom.

“One director pulled me aside and said ‘Olivia, the thing is, I’m the director, so I have to look at the entire rainbow [...] and you’re bringing something but I don’t think you realize maybe how you’re coming off,” Olivia recounted. “I go, ‘Oh, so do you don’t think I realize how my choices are coming off? [...] How am I coming off? He replied ‘aggressive’ and I go ‘Great! That’s exactly what I wanted,’ and that was it.” Watch the video below!

    Do as your told you’re an actress

  • Andrew

    This is why I don’t think she’s going to have a sustainable career. When you’re not collaborative & instead combative, you wear out your welcome in Hollywood. Ask Katherine Heigl & Russel Crowe. I know Russel still gets gigs once in a while, but he was leading man status of a Brad Pitt at one point until his jerky reputation traveled far and wide. Too much competition to act rude & know it all like what Olivia Munn’s doing.

  • David Brown

    Ugly and a bitch… not a good combo.

  • Chad C

    Big fan of Olivia Munn, but gotta point out that the word “Actor” is NOT gender neutral. A male is an actor a female is an actress and if you need to use the gender neutral term, it is thespian.

  • TEX

    Actually these days, actor is the gender neutral term. A lot of A list women refer to themselves as actors and don’t like to be referred to as an actress.

  • Robbie

    Yep. And going out in the media and talking thrash about a direvtor is bad idea. Does she really think other directors and producers won’t read this. Thy’ll think twice about hiring her now.
    Demo Moore made the same mistake back in the 90′s. And she disappeared for a good 10 years didn’t she.

  • Chad C

    My point is, that is wrong. They are not using it as a gender neutral term, they are missusing it.

  • KelVintage

    David Brown is a privileged white moron.
