The Oklahoma City-native broke through to Hollywood stardom when, after starring in Z-list films like Scarecrow Gone Wild, she headlined hits like Date Night and Iron Man 2. That same year, Munn debuted as new correspondent for The Daily Show. She would take that comedic and improvisational news experience into one of her hottest TV role, playing financial reporter Sloan Sabbith on the hit cable drama Newsroom.
She’s nice with the written word, penning her memoir Suck It, Wonder Woman: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek. But she’s also outspoken on issues like the #MeToo movement’s fight against work-related sexual abuse and sexual inappropriateness. “For the people who have had to put up with it for a very long time,” she said in an interview. “I can say from my own personal experience it's actually a really, an amazing time right now because for some reason we don't have to put up with it anymore and our voices and our pain matter. That's the first step of change but we have to be vigilant and we have to continue to see it through." Munn’s star will continue to shine.
