Munn, who is currently shooting the new HBO series The Newsroom and the Steven
Soderbergh movie Magic Mike, sat down with
PETA for an exclusive video interview, which you can watch here.
Munn is also the host of PETA's brand-new video exposé of fur farms in China, the

Please "like" and tweet Olivia's new video so that all your friends can learn
