Why Olivia Munn actually lost money acting in 'Ocean's Eight'

Actress Olivia Munn has a cameo in the upcoming all-female heist thriller “Ocean’s Eight,” but the brief role apparently cost her rather than made her money.

Munn told Entertainment Weekly Radio that she had to pay up front for her expensive wardrobe for the scene she appeared in, which took place at the annual Met Gala in New York City — and she received no reimbursement.

“It’s a whole scene at the Met Ball and they’re like, ‘Do your own glam.’ I got the dress, all that, and then you submit the bills for it because I’m part of your movie,” she said.

“But the bills come right back to you,” she continued. “It actually cost me money to be in ‘Ocean’s Eight.'”

“Ocean’s Eight” stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and several other notable names.

It is an extension of the “Ocean’s” film series, and it’s slated for release on June 8, 2018.
