The Daily Show’s Olivia Munn’s Hilarious Take on Ex-Boyfriends, Fat Jeans, and More

Besides her regular gig on The Daily Show, Olivia Munn is costarring in the comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It with Sarah Jessica Parker and is set to appear in Aaron Sorkin’s highly anticipated HBO series, More as This Story Develops. Funny (and perfectly self-deprecating), Olivia cracks wise on diets, exercise, and—yes—the ex.

SHAPE: You grew up all over the world, including Japan. What was that like?

OLIVIA: My stepfather was in the Air Force. I was constantly the new girl, which was really hard because people weren’t welcoming to me. Walking into a cafeteria was literally like going onto a battle- field. “Oh crap, oh crap, where am I going to sit?” For most of junior year in high school, I had lunch with the 70-year-old librarian!

SHAPE: So sad! But aren’t a lot of comics essentially tragic clowns, smiling on the outside, crying on the inside?

OLIVIA: That’s right. I’m actually sitting in a dark closet sobbing as we speak.

SHAPE: [laughs]

OLIVIA: I’m so glad you find this amusing; it makes me feel better knowing that my pain is helping you. But all jokes aside, you do have to find a way to laugh through pain. The reason those “poor me” jokes work is that they have a grain of truth.
