If you’re surrounded by the world’s hottest celebrities and you’re at the most happening party of the night, you’d probably party as hard as New Girl actress Olivia Munn did.

In February 2016, the X-Men: Apocalypse star changed into her post-party duds after the Oscars and headed out to the Vanity Fair Post-Oscars Party. And she didn’t come home until 6 a.m.

Olivia changed out of the gorgeous asymmetrical Stella McCartney gown she wore to the Oscars, slipping into a sexy embroidered cutout dress by J. Mendel.

A few years earlier, she appeared as Angie, Nick Miller’s (Jake Johnson) stripper girlfriend, in three episodes in Season Two of FOX’s television sitcom New Girl.

“She comes to the bar where Nick works,” said her co-star Jake Johnson during a Screen Actors Guild Q&A in November 2012. “She’s got a scandalous job. It involves laps, and it involves dancing. Nick likes that because he’s not a damn idiot.”

“We’re shooting some really great stuff in a cabin right now,” he added about filming the second season. “We were with Dr. Sam and Olivia Munn shooting guns in a cabin.”

How old was Olivia Munn as Angie in New Girl?

Olivia stars in the episodes “Bathtub,” “Santa,” and “Cabin” that aired in December 2012 and January 2013. Born on July 3, 1980, in Oklahoma City, Olivia was 32 years old when the episodes aired and turned 33 on July 3, 2013.

“Angie is a new love interest for Nick. She is someone who really gets Nick to get outside of his comfort zone and really throws inhibitions to the side and just do things that he never thought that he would do,” Munn told TV Guide about her New Girl character.

“She gets along with the whole group. She’s the kind of girl that has no problem finding fun in any place with anything, no matter if there are rules or regulations. It’s just about having fun and living life.”

“Sad for Nick,” Olivia told She Knows about not being able to appear in more episodes due to scheduling conflicts. “But I’m over on The Newsroom. Maybe whenever my schedule frees up I can try to swing both.”

“I had to finish doing New Girl so I could start the second season on Newsroom,” Munn explained to Vulture. “In the TV world, one ends and we just have to end it abruptly. The schedule’s backed up so that’s a way to tie it up quickly.”

The actress paired her dress with the Christian Louboutin “Youpiyou” sandals in the same green shade.

Even though she went until the break of dawn, Olivia uploaded a photo of herself yawning in the car captioned, “When you get home at 6am but have to give the jewels back at 10am. 😪 #yawn.”
