So her flight to LA got canceled, but Olivia Munn wouldn't let the snowy streets of New York stop her from appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday night. She ate cookies backstage, but the tastiest thing in the room was clearly Olivia. During the interview, she showed why she's Complex's favorite geek. The Daily Show correspondent talked to Letterman about her parents' divorce and her awkward preparations for throwing a party to make friends when she moved from Japan to Oklahoma at age 16.
"In America, the way to make friends is, like, throw a party," she explained. "Some kids at school found out that my parents were gonna be out of town. I said, 'Sure,' I would have a party. So then, as I was walking through the halls, somebody hands me a flyer, like, 'Here, go to this party.' And I looked at the flyer and it was directions to my house. Sad, but it was actually fun for me, because I was like, 'Now people want to be my friend'."
Munn sang Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's "Crossroads" (video after the jump) pretty terribly before telling Letterman she thought her first appearance on the show might go differently. Still, that didn't stop her from asking for the cue cards.
Munn's who appears on the cover of Maxim's February issue, is getting ready to start shooting the big screen adaptation of Allison Pearson's 2003 bestsellerÂ I Don't Know How She Does It, with Sarah Jessica Parker, next week. She also stars in the new NBC prime time comedyÂ Perfect Couples, airing January 20th.
