While the decision to make this story lead today’s Dirt Bag may come across as shady at first glance, please know that I have no interest in being rude to Olivia Munn. As a card-carrying Munniac, I am constantly rooting for her success and find her to be a welcome presence in any film (she’s charming even in terrible ones, like Office Christmas Party), TV show (she made The Newsroom watchable), or cheeky tabloid feature.
Anyway! Our girl just revealed that she had to pay her own way to be in Ocean’s 8, and I’m inspired by her openness about the process because it’s one of those things a humorless famous person would never reveal.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Munn said appearing in the upcoming reboot (or is it technically just a plain old sequel?) “actually cost [her] money.” Of her cameo, which takes place during the Met Gala (never forget this movie is about a heist that goes down on the first Monday in May), she said:
“They’re like do your own glam and I got the dress and all that and then you submit the bills for it because I’m part of your movie. And then [the producer’s] like, ‘Oh no, the bills come right back to you.’
[But I’m] just as excited about it as everybody else.”
I’m willing to bet Munn was one of many celebrities asked to pay their own way for the jam-packed scene, and that she just happens to be one of the few who doesn’t think sharing the story is humiliating. Because it isn’t! She gets to be in Ocean’s 8 and didn’t mind spending the dough because she’s rich! If anything, telling this story is a humblebrag!
Ocean’s 8 was filmed 100 years ago and will be out sometime in the next decade.
So it appears Fergie and Josh Duhamel’s marriage was donezo long before they released a statement to the press, as Fergie is now sharing how strange it was to maintain a public facade in which she and Duhamel were happily married.
She told People:
“Honestly, it was just getting a little weird for us with all the romantic questions. We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird...There’s no perfect time so we just decided to do it...You can ask him, but it was just getting a little weird to laugh through the first date questions.”
OF COURSE SHE DID THIS. THIS IS BARBRA’S MAIN THING.
