HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Olivia Munn is not your ordinary TV host. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that the hostess, actress and all around Hollywood beauty has a passion for fast food and improv comedy. So, how did the host of G4’s “Attack of the Show” celebrate accolades from Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr.? With McDonald’s… of course! “I love improv comedy, and on a set like [“Iron Man 2”], getting a hundred people in the crew and cast to laugh every time they yelled cut - that feels pretty good.” Munn said recently in a new interview with AccessHollywood.com. “Robert just goes, ‘Can we stop for a second? Olivia deserves a round of applause. She is ROCKING this!’” “This was at 2 AM, so no one was awake to call,” she continued. “I saw a McDonald’s, pulled over and celebrated with cheeseburgers, fries and an ear-to-ear grin.” Olivia’s glee was evident as she shared the story of her time working on the latest installment of Marvel Comics’ heavy metal movie franchise. “[It] was the best time of my life,” she explained about her time on the set. “I was working with Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle. It was fantastic.” Olivia, who can be seen daily on “Attack of the Show” on G4, also recently appeared on the big screen in “Date Night” and “Slammin’ Salmon,” as well as on the streets of San Francisco as part of a “social experiment” held by AXE Shower Gel. “We went to the streets of San Francisco, and I dressed in my Clark Kent disguise, which is a pony tail, glasses, and kinda frumpy. I’d go up to guys and ask them if they wanted to hang out with me, and quickly we’d have two hot blonde girls or a construction worker or a mime come in to distract them. So, I’d walk away, and then someone from AXE would tell them, ‘So did you realize Olivia Munn was just talking to you?’” To watch the subjects’ reactions to the news, CLICK HERE. Sans ‘Clark Kent’ attire, Olivia also has a film from the producers of “Supertroopers” coming out soon, called “Freeloadin’.” Even though Hollywood seems to be throwing a lot her way, the up & coming star was very humble about her current happenings. “I’d be happy if I was handing Robert Downey Jr. his Fiji water. I’m just excited to get any opportunity that comes at me. I’m talking to Access Hollywood... are you kidding me?”
