Olivia Munn & Gemma Chan Get Honored at Apex for Youth's Inspiration Awards Gala 2019!

Olivia Munn and Gemma Chan strike a pose on the red carpet while attending the 2019 Apex for Youth’s Inspiration Awards Gala held at the Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (April 17) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress was honored for her contributions to the Asian-American community, alongside Gemma, 36, and Credit Karma founder Kenneth Lin.

Apex is an organization which aids underserved Asian and immigrant communities in New York City.

“It’s very important that we realize it’s not just checking a box,” Gemma said at the event (via WWD). “And there’s a difference between diversity and representation. True representation, for me, is when you have stories which are being told by and from the viewpoint of the community in question. And it’s more than just skin deep. It’s about authenticity in that sense.”

FYI: Olivia is wearing a Peter Pilotto look with a Laura Basci tank top, Jimmy Choo shoes, Valextra clutch and Jacob & Co. stud earrings. Gemma is wearing a Monse dress and KatKim ear hooks.

Gemma Chan Reveals How Racial Stereotyping Impacted Her Career

Gemma Chan looks stunning on the cover of Glamour UK‘s digital #EverydayIsWomensDay March issue, available now.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On women being asked about ageing more than men: “Discussions around ageing have been a way of controlling women, making women feel insecure about ourselves and as if they aren’t adequate. We need to change things, especially in the beauty industry. The ageing process is going to happen to all of us – how are we going to deal with it? I think ‘anti-ageing’ is a prehistoric term.

On how racial stereotypes impacted her career: “Back when I started out a lot of the parts that I would be asked to audition for would be specifically ethnic parts. But I was told things like,’ we really liked you, we liked your read, but can you do more of an accent, you sound too English!’ There were preconceived ideas of what someone like me should sound like.”

On using rejection as fuel: “I put that energy into my work and it just makes me more determined to do what I do. That’s why it’s so important for a film Crazy Rich Asians to come out and challenge and subvert people’s ideas of what Asian people are like or perhaps what women are capable of…I think we need to challenge prejudice as a whole, to be honest.”

Gemma Chan Reveals How She Handles New Social Situations

Gemma Chan is on the cover of Allure magazine’s April 2019 issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Captain Marvel star had to share with the mag…

On being shy: “In a new social situation, I’d much rather sit back and let other people talk first. I prefer to listen and, I suppose, get the measure of people before I necessarily give them all of me.”

On the Internet trolls who took issue with her playing Bess of Hardwick: “Why are actors of color, who have fewer opportunities anyway, only allowed to play their own race? And sometimes they’re not even allowed to play their own race. In the past, the role would be given to a white actor who would tape up their eyes and do the role in yellowface…. I feel like Hamilton opened minds a lot. We have a black man playing George Washington. They describe it as ‘America then, told by America now.’ And I think our art should reflect life now.”

On celebrating representation in fashion and media: “I love opening up a magazine and seeing a whole mixture of body types, gray hair, dark skin, wrinkles — we’re saying that we find these things beautiful.
