In 2017 Olivia Munn made headlines for something other than her acting.

The actress was one of six women, including fellow star Natasha Henstridge, who accused director and producer Brett Ratner of sexual misconduct in a Los Angeles Times story.

Ratner denied the allegations outlined in the report to CNN through his attorney, Martin Singer.

The following year she reportedly discoveredone of her scenes in “The Predator” film had included an actor who was a registered sex offender.

Munn reported it to the studio, the scene was deleted and the fallout resulted in more headlines for her.

The “X-Men: Apocalypse” star recently told Women’s Health the stress of it all showed up in her body.

“She turns her phone over and offers proof: photos of an allover body rash, a video of a biopsy, the scar that remains from doctors’ poking, prodding, testing,” the magazine reported.

“Lupus, they thought, but in the end, they were wrong. The rash, she says, was the physical manifestation of pent-up angst bubbling to the surface,” according to the magazine.

Munn said she considers herself a “silence breaker.”

“One of the things that stresses me out more than anything is how do we do right by (the silence breakers)?” she said.

She said she’s been working on her health, including mediating.

To that end she’s gotten some assistance using the Muse headband which senses brain activity and translates it into guided meditation sounds.

“When you’re thinking of nothing at all, you get bird chirps,” she said. “It’s like a little video game for me.”
