Olivia Munn has gotten very picky with her choice of movie roles. So much so that she turned down a role in Deadpool because she “didn’t want to be the girlfriend.” The role went to Gotham star  Morena Baccarin. And Olivia made sure her character in X-Men. “I said, ‘Is there a fight scene?’ ” Munn told American Way Magazine “I thought Psylocke was always one of the most lethal characters, 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.’”

Olivia’s not trying to be just a sex object!
