Olivia Munn had to get into fighting shape—literally—for X-Men: Apocalypse, but just because filming has wrapped doesn't mean she has dropped her intense workouts.
While she might not be training quite as aggressively as before, she hasn't quit her sword training despite realistically not needing to wield one anytime soon. But Munn seemed to enjoy her sword training while preparing for her role as Psylocke, so she's become dedicated to the sport.
"I still do taekwondo and I have a sword closet at home. It's really a great exercise for me to do," she revealed to E! News' Sibley Scoles.
But since filming has wrapped, Munn has found herself back in the studio, but a different kind of studio. "I've been back in L.A. doing Body by Simone. You go in there and it's crazy," she added, describing the intensity of the dance classes. "Going in there isn't like a regular frilly...they're like ballerinas who are hard core."

All that intense work definitely paid off, as The Newsroom alum looks phenomenal in her skintight costume. But she did admit that it was incredibly difficult to wear and required the help of many people to help her get in and out of it.
"[Psylocke's uniform] is not the most glamour thing to put on," she confessed. "There's actually a lubricant that they put in and you have to slide into it."
Sounds like a doozy! So much so, in fact, that her beau Aaron Rodgers only got to see the sexy suit onset. Munn joked that she would've taken it home, but the amount of effort that went into putting it on didn't make it worth it LOL.
X-Men: Apocalypse released a new trailer during the 2016 Super Bowl, and it showed a dark side of the franchise. Director, writer and producer Bryan Singer assembled an all-star cast of newcomers that includes Lana Condor as Jubilee, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler and Sophie Turner as Jean Grey. The four students look to Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) to help them master their mutant powers.
Meanwhile, the world's first and oldest mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) awakens after several millennia and recruits the Four Horsemen: Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Archangel (Ben Hardy), Psylocke (Munn) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp). Like any other superhero movie, the immortal villain wants to destroy the world, and the X-Men have to stop him.
