There are countless reasons to love Audrey‘s Spring 2011 cover girl, Olivia Munn. In fact, we’ve already created a list of our Top 5 reasons, but that was before we discovered that she can also kick butt.
In April, X-Men: Apocalypse producer Bryan Singer announced that Munn would be joining the X-Men cast as Psylocke. For those of you who are familiar with the character Psylocke– a mutant with both telekinetic and telepathic abilities– then you probably recall that she is an excellent fighter and is incredibly skilled with the sword.
It seems Munn has been working hard to bring authenticity to her character. Yesterday, Munn released a post on Instagram where she shows off some of her “new tricks.” She is joined by her boyfriend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who shows off some of his own skills in the background. Let’s just say it’s pretty easy to see who would win in a sword fight.
