Olivia Munn Heats Up Popular Mechanics Cover

Olivia Munn is so hot these days that she can pretty much cover any magazine she wants.

Proof: the February 2015 issue of Popular Mechanics, which put the brunette beauty on their cover. The cover photo shows Olivia walking away from an explosion (looking flawless, natch) wearing a tight black tank top, shimmery skinny jeans and quilted moto boots.

Munn, who edited the mag's movie awards in the issue, wasn't always so comfortable getting all gussied up. "My sisters were always doing makeup and curlers, and I wasn’t interested in that," she revealed to Popular Mechanics. In fact, the 34-year-old was more comfortable building things with her brothers.

"As early as I can remember, when we'd all be kicked outside for the summer, my brothers and I would make a huge fort and string out the electricity from inside and build an air-conditioning unit," the "Mortdecai" star said. "In the winter we built igloos. We made them so perfect that we'd be sweating inside. For fun, occasionally we'd decide to do something like make our own batteries out of pennies. We'd just create."

Fortunately for us style lovers, the brunette beauty learned to love fashion and has been showing off her sartorial savvy on the red carpet with standouts such as her "Black Swan" frock and a printed jumpsuit.

Lookin' good, girl:
