Olivia Munn: It Made Sense to Go Naked For Film
Olivia Munn thinks that her topless scene in Magic Mike made sense for the storyline.
The Newsroom actress, who also appears in the Steven Soderbergh stripper film, said that she felt fine about baring her chest for the film and that it was not gratuitous.
"I forgot that I did that until I saw it at the premiere. The way it was shot didn't feel gratuitous - I think that's what every actress says, right? 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."
Olivia also revealed that she requested a clear set for shooting the sequence on the day she had to strip down: "The day of the shoot, I locked it down. I only wanted the people who absolutely had to be there. I even cleared out video village, which you'd normally forget about."
