LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Olivia Munn came in number two on this year’s Maxim’s Hot 100 list – losing out on the number one spot to Victoria’s Secret beauty/upcoming “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – but the actress says she’s satisfied with her runner-up win.
“Number two is the best — Rosie has to take all of heat for being number one and then I’m like the Prince Harry of the Maxim 100 list,” Olivia told Access Hollywood at the Hot 100 Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “I get to have fun and do whatever, and she gets all the heat and the talk shows. And she can do that, and I can sit at home.”
The 30–year-old brunette, who rose to fame as co-host of the G4 network’s “Attack of the Show,” recently starred in NBC’s short-lived (yet hilarious!) comedy, “Perfect Couples,” and appears as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart.
Additionally, Olivia had minor roles in “Date Night,” starring the legendary Steve Carell and Tina Fey, and “Iron Man 2” with Robert Downey, Jr.
“I work a lot and it’s kind of one of those things — this business is so arbitrary — success is so hard to attain and it can be so fleeting once you do get it, so I just try to take the opportunities that come and I’m trying to make the right decisions and be discerning about my career and just say thank you as much as possible,” she told Access of how she manages her busy career schedule. “I’ve been given some opportunities, and I also have no personal life! So I, you know, I sleep at night with my scripts next to me.
“That’s nice — it keeps me warm,” she jokingly added.
