Hollywood Actress Olivia Munn Grace The Cover Of Cosmoplitian

The actress, 38, made the statement in an interview for Cosmopolitan's December issue, as she called for a change in Hollywood to abolish the 'unfair stigma' surrounding women.

It comes after she fought to have her former co-star Steven Wilder Striegel - a registered sex offender - removed from new movie The Predator and bravely spoke out about disgraced director Brett Ratner, accusing him of sexual harassment.

 The #MeToo movement has garnered much attention since last year, after famed Hollywood director Harvey Weinstein was faced with multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

Many of Hollywood's leading ladies have come forward, recalling their own experience with sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace, as part of the wide-spread campaign across social media to raise awareness.

And having her say, Olivia has been vocal in her crusade to speak out against the unequal power at play in the movie industry.

She told the publication: 'I'm not for sale... if speaking up costs me my career, I don't want it anyway.'

Olivia fought to have actor Striegel removed from movie The Predator after discovering he was a registered sex offender. Striegel spent six months in prison in 2010 after pleading guilty to risk of injury to a child and enticing a minor by computer.

He was accused of attempting to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual relationship.

Striegel's scenes from The Predator were removed, following pressure from Munn on Warner Bros bosses, and she claimed following the decision, director Shane Black - who had been a friend of Striegel - 'has not spoken to her since'.

The victim of the actor has since publicly thanked Olivia for 'standing up for her'.

She tweeted: 'I am also eternally grateful for Olivia Munn’s action. She spoke up for me. She took a stance for me. In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have.
