'Newsroom' Star Olivia Munn on Tough News: 'We Can’t Ignore It'
Actress Olivia Munn appears in the May issue of Redbook, talking about her HBO show “Newsroom” and how she feels about real news.
Munn said, “New stories that interest me -- the protests in Venezuela or in the Ukraine, or the rapes in India -- also give me anxiety, and I want to pull back. But this small anxiety that I'm feeling pales in comparison to what these people are going through, so I feel like it's the least I can do, to read their stories. I think the beauty of the Internet is that it's in our laps as soon as we wake up in the morning: We can't ignore it.”
The dark-haired beauty also dished on her Swedish boyfriend, “Robocop” actor Joel Kinnaman, and how she can sometimes talk too quickly. “He tells me, 'Baby, slow down! I cannot understand you. And I think to myself, 'Just listen faster!'”
