USAToday.com – It’s not that he doesn’t get her.
Olivia Munn says she and her boyfriend, The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman, have a small communication problem. She talks so fast that he can’t keep up.
“He tells me ‘Baby, slow down! I cannot understand you.’ And I think to myself, ‘Just listen faster!’ ”
The Newsroom star, featured in the May issue of Redbook, also talks about news, telling the mag:
“I think there’s entertainment news, which is like Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, that’s about the entertainment business. And then there is news as entertainment — and that’s what Nancy Grace is. I think you have to look at it differently; you cannot look at it as if you’re watching the news. It’s not news. They’re taking news and discussing it and debating it and doing God knows what with it, but it’s not news.”
The actress says we all need to be reading the hard stuff.
“News stories that interest me — the protests in Venezuela or in the Ukraine, or the rapes in India — also give me anxiety, and I want to pull back. But this small anxiety that I’m feeling pales in comparison to what these people are going through, so I feel like it’s the least I can do, to read their stories. I think the beauty of the Internet is that it’s in our laps as soon as we wake up in the morning: We can’t ignore it.”
Oh, and about starring as Eric Bana’s wife in the new exorcism thriller, Deliver Us From Evil, she says, “I took a guy friend to see a screening and he had to pop a Xanax.”
