Actress Olivia Munn trained for six hours a day for her role in the new “X-men” movie. The “Mortdecai” star, who plays Psylocke in “X-Men: Apocalypse”, said she did not like the idea of having to work out for the film, reported Contactmusic.

“The beginning of the movie I do look different. If you watch the movie from the beginning to my fight scene, I lost, like, 12 pounds, because when I started I was like, ‘I’m the relateable actress, I can eat whatever…’

“But then I started training for, like, six or seven hours a day – martial arts and sword training – so that I
could become as lethal as I could, and I needed to feel as confident as Psylocke as I could. So six or seven hours a day for, like, two months (I trained) and then I lost 12 pounds.”

Munn, 35, who is dating buff sportsman Aaron Rodgers, admits she likes the way she feels now she has a toned physique: “I feel very strong and it’s an awesome feeling.”
