Olivia Munn is opening up about her anti-aging, diet and weight loss secrets. The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ star took to social media and gave a fascinating glimpse into her daily routine, and reveals how much weight she lost in the past year.
The 35-year-old actress has taken to Instagram to give a lengthy and fascinating overview of her skin care, anti-aging and weight loss regime. It started as an explanation for why her face appears different. And what could have begun as a denunciation for body shaming and plastic surgery speculation becomes, instead, in essence a tutorial, presented without defensiveness or condemnation.
Needless to say this seemingly unfiltered expose has gone viral, much as the typical stars-without-makeup selfies go viral. She was memorable in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ as the sexy but downright lethal Psylocke and on the red carpet she’s always been a standout. But yet, no one is ever immune from social media trolls and bullies.
So, with a side-by-side comparison photo revealing her face is thinner this year than last year, she first revealed she’s dropped some pounds, saying, “I lost 12 pounds this past year while training for Xmen. I kept it off by coming up w/an hour workout I do a few times a week.”
Continuing her explanation, she added, “The weight loss leaned out my cheeks and jawline. Working out is also great for your skin because it increases blood flow to your face which helps rejuvenate.”
She also discusses some of her skin care tips to stave off wrinkles naturally and she singles out Japanese potatoes in particular. She says, in part, “There are Hyaluronic Acid pills and vitamins but I think that the best way to get it in your system is by eating them in foods that naturally have them.”

Olivia Munn is dating Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the NFL Green Bay Packers and in an interview last year, said of him, “He’s in such great shape, and especially lately, he’s been eating so well and working out. Having somebody in your life like that is so motivating.” This might also shed some insight into her recent changes although she does not credit him this time around. Nonetheless, she’s on record for having said this in the recent past.
But regardless, she’s taking a proactive approach in quelling social media speculation and at the same time giving the public an education on skin care and kudos to that! You can see Olivia Munn’s before and after weight loss photos below!
