Olivia Munn on Jezebel

Given all our recent conversations, I thought this Olivia Munn interview would be of some interest to you guys. It was good to see Munn's response, and I think the Jezebel criticism was unfair, but she came off, to me, as unnecessarily defensive. I tend to roll my eyes when people say things like, "I get it, I'm easy to hate." It strikes me as something you reach for because you can't bring yourself to say what you really mean: "I get it, a lot of people are jealous of me."
