Brett Ratner: I'm not a naked shrimp eater
Brett Ratner is setting the record straight about his rumored relationship with geek-chic actress Olivia Munn and his supposed shortcomings.
Brett Ratner would like you to know that he's not a fan of eating raw foods while lounging around naked. The director, while on the press circuit promoting his new film, Tower Heist, admitted that he once dated actress Olivia Munn before she was famous.
Munn wrote in her book, Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek, about dating a "bigwig" director while she was getting her start in Hollywood. She then went on to detail an uncomfortable revelation about him -- she once saw him eating raw shrimp while pleasuring himself. Munn likened him to "a grown man in an oversized shirt holding his undersized manhood in hands glistening with shrimp fat."
Not so, said Ratner. He dated Munn while she was using her real name, Lisa Munn.
"I used to date Olivia Munn, I'll be honest with everybody here," he said. "But when she was 'Lisa,' that was the problem. She wasn't Asian back then. She was hanging out on my set of After the Sunset, I [had sex with] her a few times... but I forgot her," he said.
"Because she changed her name, I didn't know it was the same person, and so when she came and auditioned with me for a TV show, I forgot her, she got pissed off. And she made up all these stories about me eating shrimp and masturbating in my trailer. And she talked about my shortcomings."
Ratner thinks she made up the claims because she was sad about losing him.
"I get it, you know," he said. "She's bitter." However, he doesn't really know her now. "It's not the same girl that I met actually, Olivia and Lisa are two completely different girls, just so you know."
So, she morphed into a different person? So talented, that Olivia Munn.
