Olivia Munn Reveals Why She Turned Down Morena Baccarin's 'Deadpool' Role

Olivia Munn revealed that the reason she turned down Morena Baccarin‘s role in Deadpool is because she did not want to play the “girlfriend” role.

When she took meetings about playing Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, she wanted to be able to have a fight scene.

“I thought Psylocke was always one of the most lethal characters, and I said, ‘Yes, as long as you’re not using her to be the eye candy. She has really powerful abilities,’” Olivia told American Way. “And they said, ‘Yes, that’s an important part.’ ”

The fight scene could be her monologue,” Olivia added.

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.
