Olivia Munn Surprises Her Mom with Massive Makeover of Her Childhood Home

Olivia Munn is giving one mother of a gift!

The X-Men actress, 37, is quick to admit that her childhood in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was far from quiet. “At my house there’s a lot of screaming going on,” she says in the latest episode of MyHouzz, adding that her family is “very blunt and sarcastic.”

Her mom, Kim, who was born and raised in Vietnam, is at the center of the spirited group, always playing host to their family and friends.

“My mom thinks that cooking is the most important thing,” she says. “There’s always an open door policy for dinner.”

But the kitchen, living room and dining room in her home were far from functional for Kim and Munn’s stepfather, Sam. Not only were the countertops too tall — “She’s a hobbit,” Munn jokes — but the overall layout wasn’t conducive for their big gatherings. So for the ultimate Mother’s Day gift, Munn sought out Travis Morelock of MIDMODERNdesign and together they transformed the dark, dreary and cluttered abode into a bright, open and modern retreat for the couple.

“If there’s anybody in the world that I think deserves it, it’s her,” Munn says.

In the kitchen, Morelock cleverly borrowed some space from the attic (the existence of which was a surprise to Munn) to raise the ceilings, and also incorporated extendable racks in the cabinets so Kim wouldn’t have to stand on a step stool.

The walk-in pantry is an immediate favorite of Kim’s when she’s finally able to see the space, however the rice cooker and steamer built into the island clearly take the top spots among the new features.

“All of the functionality is custom made to fit your tiny height,” Munn tells her ecstatic mom. Kim adds, “I’m very happy and I can’t wait to cook and invite a lot of people by to see my new house.”

The sectional sofa in the living room is a smart solution that allows everyone equal access to the TV. The dining room now sports modern light fixtures and a plenty of seating for parties. An old fireplace was also replaced with built-in shelves for her collectibles, although Munn notes Kim, “has a lot of dolls for a grown woman.”

While Kim says she is “very, very grateful” for the update, it’s Munn who is thankful she can give back to her role model.

“My mother and all of her uniqueness has definitely shaped who I am today,” Munn says. “My mom always instilled this feeling of self worth in me, and that I knew that my dreams mattered even if they were close to impossible. Without that I wouldn’t have even tried it in Hollywood.”

Olivia Munn and Multiple Women Accuse Film Producer Brett Ratner of Sexual Misconduct

Movie producer Brett Ratner has been accused of multiple cases of sexual misconduct or harassment — including by actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge.

In an article published by the Los Angeles Times Wednesday, six women spoke out against the longtime Hollywood power player, 48, who directed the Rush Hour series and produced movies including Horrible Bosses and The Revenant.

In a statement to the L.A. Times, Ratner’s attorney Martin Singer vehemently disputed the specific allegations and said “no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”

Munn claims that while visiting the set of the 2004 Ratner-directed film After the Sunset, he masturbated in front of her.

“He walked out … with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other,” Munn said. “And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated.”

Munn said she let out a “startled scream” and raced out of the trailer. She said she immediately told the man who told her to go into the trailer. “It wasn’t a shock. It wasn’t surprise,” Munn recalled the man saying. “It was just, ‘Ugh, sorry about that.’ ”

Munn said she told her sister, Sara Potts, about the incident, who urged her to speak with a lawyer. Potts confirmed Munn’s account to the L.A. Times.

The actress said the attorney dissuaded her from going up against a powerful director.

“That did leave an impact on me,” Munn said. “How broken do women have to be before people listen?”

The actress wrote about the alleged incident in her 2010 collection of essays without naming Ratner. Later in 2010, Munn claims she saw Ratner at a party, where he reportedly bragged about ejaculating on magazine covers featuring her image.

“I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,” Munn told The Times.

“It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won’t quit,” she said. “You just hope that enough people believe the truth and for enough time to pass so that you can’t be connected to him anymore.”

Ratner “vehemently disputes” Munn’s claims, Singer told The Times.

Actress and model Natasha Henstridge claims that when she was 19, she was forced to perform oral sex on Ratner in his New York apartment after watching a movie with a group of friends. Henstridge alleges Ratner blocked the doorway when she tried to leave and began touching himself.

“He strong-armed me in a real way,” she said. “He physically forced himself on me. At some point, I gave in and he did his thing.”

Singer disputed the allegation to the L.A. Times, saying Ratner spent time with Henstridge but claiming the actress was “upset after learning my client had a girlfriend who he would not leave” for her.

Actresses Jaime Ray Newman and Katharine Towne claim Ratner made unwanted, aggressive advances to them on a plane and at a party, respectively. Singer disputed both accounts. 

Four people involved on the film Rush Hour 2 also came forward to describe a “sexually charged” work environment, and two background actresses said Ratner pursued them and offered them speaking roles. Singer disputed the claims, and James M. Freitag, an assistant director on the set, told The Times in a statement that “any complaints of any kind including sexual harassment would be immediately directed to my attention. There were no complaints reported to me whatsoever.”

Ratner, whose next project as a director is a Hugh Hefner biography starring Jared Leto, has been romantically linked in the past to stars including Mariah Carey and Lindsay Lohan.

Why Olivia Munn Turned Down Deadpool

Olivia Munn turned down the opportunity to play the role of Vanessa in Deadpool because she didn’t want to play a “girlfriend” role.

Speaking to American Way Magazine, the actress said she refused the role because of a lack of action opportunities – something her new role as Psylocke in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse offered.

“I thought Psylocke was always one of the most lethal characters,” Munn explained, “and I said, ‘Yes

, as long as you’re not using her to be the eye candy. She has really powerful abilities.’ And they said, ‘Yes, that’s an important part.’”

Vanessa was eventually played by Firefly regular, Morena Baccarin.
