Olivia Munn was determined to wear a pair of Christian Louboutins to last night's premiere of her new HBO series, The Newsroom.

Even if they were too small for her.

Wait till you hear what she did to make them work…

"I did some work on them because they are a half-size too small," Munn told us. "So I put on my nerd cap, and it's plastic in the front, so I took a blow dryer to heat it. I put my foot into it and molded it, and then I put a cold press to it to freeze it."

Very impressive, Ms. Munn!

"I'm the female Asian MacGyver!" she declared.

Louboutins were only part of Munn's fab package last night. She was also wearing an Armani dress and Neil Lane jewels.

Getting a gig on a Sorkin show for HBO is still sinking in.

"I held out or a month just for the hope of auditioning for Sorkin," Munn remembered. "Everybody was freaking out because you walk away from a lot of great opportunities when you do that. And it was really hard for me too because it wasn't that long ago that I was like, 'Oh, if only I could get that Ross Dress for Less commercial—that would be amazing.'"
