Just in case you were wondering, Olivia Munn is not a pill on-set, despite the rumors.
The Magic Mike actress has scoffed at the recent whispers stating that she has a “know-it-all attitude” and is “overstepping” her boundaries on her most recent gig, The Newsroom. And so has its creator Aaron Sorkin.
“The story bears no resemblance to reality,” stated Sorkin in a report. “Olivia is a perfect cast member who is loved and respected by the entire cast, by the crew and the producers, by HBO, and especially by me.”
This is a far cry from what the scathing report stated, including that Munn was acting more like Sorkin’s co-writer instead of an actress, and was even causing waves with the show’s star, Jeff Daniels.
“Olivia and Aaron’s relationship soured so completely during season two of The Newsroom that it created a poisonous atmosphere on the set,” said the source.
Like most celebs, Munn took to Twitter to defend herself:
Sucks 2 read bullshit thats perpetuated on blogosphere. But feels so great 2 have friends like this who stick up 4 u. http://t.co/YQRaphSA20

Some are wondering if this recent gossip is just a ploy to create a buzz for the upcoming season three of the show. As you may recall, it ended quite a while ago, and perhaps this is a way to get people thinking of the show again. Featuring some seriously zany story lines, such as a doll coming to life, an elderly witch, and an orangutan nurse, such a twist wouldn’t be that unheard of.
Munn has been on the show since 2012, and plays Sloan Sabbith, a socially awkward senior financial reporter for News Night.
