Olivia Munn debunks cosmetic surgery rumours

Olivia Munn has shut down rumours she's had plastic surgery.

The 'X Men: Apocalypse' star has poured cold water on allegations she's gone under the knife and has admitted her appearance can alter from time-to-time because her multicultural ethnicity is accentuated with make-up.

Speaking in the May issue of Fashion magazine, she said of the speculations: "That's where it's unfair: the judgment that is put on women for how we look. If you're looking bad, you have to cover up. If you're looking good, you've done something or made a deal with the devil. Being multiethnic―I'm half Chinese and half white―brings up a whole set of complications that people don't even think about when it comes to being photographed. I have more of a white appearance on the outside, but my bone structure is very much Asian.

"I have high cheekbones and smaller eyes. When you put shimmer on the inside of my eyes, I immediately look cross-eyed. If you put too heavy of an eyelash on me, it looks like my eyes are halfway closed.

"When your face changes because of makeup, it's hard to let people know that you're not actually doing surgery or fillers."

The 35-year-old star was slapped with hurtful comments earlier this year when she uploaded a photograph on Instagram of her looking slightly different following a glamorous photoshoot.

She explained: "I posted the picture on Instagram because the glam team had worked very hard.

"People were like, 'What did she do to her face?' A week later, I looked completely different. As an actor, you can be completely transformative and take on different roles. As an individual in the world, it's a totally different story―we live in a time where there's so many pictures that bring so much scrutiny."
