Made Babe: Olivia Munn

By Gerri Miller

You probably know Olivia Munn from Attack of the Show and The Daily Show (and of course our very own Chickipedia, home to over 200 Olivia images). Now she also stars on the NBC comedy Perfect Couples (Thursdays at 8:30/7:30 central) as married, love-obsessed Leigh, a know-it-all when it comes to relationships. But… “I’m not like that at all,” she confesses. “If somebody proposed to me I’d most likely throw up.” To our joy, the happily single Munn doesn’t shy away from telling the truth about dating, sex and which part of a guy is like a snowflake. See below.

MADE MAN: You have a huge following and an accessible image. Do you think the average guy feels he might have a chance with you?
OLIVIA MUNN: I can’t speak to what guys think. I don’t really get asked out that much. The hot, athletic, tall guy could be a loser. At the end of the day all that stuff goes away and it’s two people in bed. I just want a nice guy who makes me laugh but that I’m attracted to as well.

MM: What gets you first: intelligence, charm, money, looks, or sense of humor?
OM: If I’m physically attracted, and once we start talking it seems very real and he’s not pretending to be something else and is very honest. I hate when people say “sense of humor.” You want him to be attractive.

MM: What’s the smoothest way a guy can approach you without a cheesy pickup line?
OM: There’s no good pickup line. It’s just physical attraction in the beginning and the chemistry is there or not, and then just saying hello and just being normal. If it’s there, it’s there.

MM: What will get him a second date?
OM: Just being very present. I don’t like ironic first dates. I don’t want to go skydiving and things that are crazy. I just want to talk and hang out.

MM: How important is sex?
OM: People have broken up with me probably because, “You want to have sex too much. Sometimes you’re too awesome and you want sex too much. And you cook all the time.” I think too much sex is when you can’t walk anymore. That would be the barometer. You want a best friend that you want to sleep with. If people don’t have sex in relationships, that’s not healthy.

MM: Do you prefer the bedroom lights on or off?
OM: I prefer lights on because I like to see what’s happening. Penises are like snowflakes. Every one is different. You want to know what’s happening.

MM: When did you have sex for the first time?
OM: I was 18, with a boy who was older. I remember after, my first words were “Is that it?” I never had sex again! (Laughs) No.

MM: What if a guy appears to never have had sex before?
OM: A virgin? That’s a lot of pressure. My suggestion to any virgin out there is to have sex as soon as you can…
