One of the stars of the new movie The Predator, Munn has been in the news quite a bit recently after uncovering the presence of a registered sex offender brought on set controversially by director Shane Black.
The 38-year-old actress said she's hurt none of her co-stars checked in on her after the news.
Co-stars Sterling K. Brown and Keegan-Michael Key quickly made public statements to voice their support of Munn and explain their absence from the Hollywood Reporter interview. "I so appreciate that you 'didn't leave well enough alone, '" Brown tweeted. I pray say thanks for him all the time. "I believe strongly in giving people second chances - but sometimes you discover that chance is not as warranted as you may have hoped". As you may or may not know, Munn is an outspoken advocate for the Time's Up initiative, and has vociferously criticized people in power who abused their position. And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak up publicly.
The star said that she felt left out when her other cast-mates stood up and clapped for Shane Black, the director, but not her. Olivia expressed disappointment over the fact that they never bothered to call her. Munn was the only actor who had to participate in a scene with the man in question, and it was a scene in which he hit on her. Nothing really changes until people see that it will affect them personally.

However, he later came to "realize that my understanding of the situation was not the full picture and the last thing I want is for Olivia to ever feel abandoned or alone. You did the right thing". "But I deserve to make that choice for myself".
The film's director Shane Black, who is a friend Striegel's, also didn't attend the premiere in Toronto.
Striegel's case was previously unknown to Fox "due to legal limitations that impede studios from running background checks on actors", says a studio statement.
Keegan-Michael Key, meanwhile, had his publicist say in a statement that he always meant to leave TIFF early "so he could be home to spend the Jewish holiday with his wife", noting that he "reached out to Olivia privately last week to let her know how proud he was of her".
Fox told the LA Times last week regarding the situation: "Our studio was not aware of Mr. Striegel's background when he was hired".
