Hier ein kleiner Tipp: Stunts lernen ist ein super Fettkiller.
Olivia Munn hat ihren Fans schon ein paar Einblicke in ihr strapaziöses Workout zu den Dreharbeiten von X-Men: Apocalypse gegeben und sie berichtet, dass sie dabei ganze 12 Pfund verloren hat - obwohl sie es gar nicht wollte!
"It was not intentional. I was trying to learn how to do all of the stunts", erklärt sie im Interview mit Catt Sadler von E! News in London.
"My character's the last to be brought into the story. They weren't expecting Psylocke to do a lot of fighting in the movie, but when I had signed on, I said that's something that I really wanted", erzählt sie weiter.
"So when they brought in my stunt person—she's super talented and very athletic, but she had never done stunts before, and she'd never done martial arts or any fighting, and she'd never picked up a sword. So when she told me that, I was like oh, my gosh."
In diesem Moment wusste Munn, dass sie noch deutlich mehr aus sich heraus holen musste.
"She was very capable and very athletic, but she had never done any stunts before, and I had grown up doing Taekwondo. I'm like, this is Psylocke's entry into this world, I'm not Jennifer Lawrence, if they don't have it, they're not gonna make sure to get it in there somehow. If there's not a fight scene being shot, if they don't have it, they're not gonna use it."
"If I wanted the fans to see Psylocke and get a good fight scene for her and the fans, I knew I had to go do it myself. So I started training every day with Taekwondo and sword and the stunt and wire work, and I just ended up losing 12 pounds from working out every day."
Gleich nachdem die Dreharbeiten vorbei waren, genoss die brünette Schönheit aber gleich wieder einen ihrer liebsten Snacks. "As soon as I finished, I went back to Green Bay where my boyfriend was, and I literally just ate chips and salsa."
X-Men: Apocalypse kommt am 27. Mai in die Kinos.
