Olivia Munn: Topless "Magic Mike" Scene "Didn't Feel Gratuitous"
"The Newsroom" actress admitted to Vulture during a recent interview that she "forgot" about her topless scene "until I saw it at the premiere," then happily explaining, "The way it was shot didn't feel gratuitous -- I think that's what every actress says, right?"
Although millions of people have already caught a glimpse of her girls in the film, Olivia revealed that she was very private during the shoot, "There are very few directors I would ever do it for. Also, my character was getting out of the shower and to keep it as realistic as possible, I didn't wear a shirt in the shower. The day of the shoot, I locked it down."
The 32-year-old actress further explained, "I only wanted the people who absolutely had to be there. I even cleared out video village, which you'd normally forget about."
However, Miss Munn did add that her stripper co-stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer weren't so shy, saying, "When they'd yell 'Cut!' I'd get my robe. The guys? They'd still be all asses shaking, walking around. They didn't put their robes on ever."
As for how Olivia related to her character, Joanna, in "Magic Mike", the actress said, "I based her on an ex-boyfriend. It's that guy you're dating who's fun, cute, you have great sex, and then three weeks into it you go, 'So, my friends are doing this little party. . .' and he's like, 'Whoa! What? I thought we were just having fun," adding, "When women do that? They're a bitch or a slut. I wanted her to be neither. She's a sexual person. She's doing what she wants."
