That's the rumor...
Radar Online reports that Olivia Munn's "know it all attitude" is rubbing her Newsroom co-star Jeff Daniels and producer/creator Aaron Sorkin.
A source said: "Olivia and Aaron's relationship soured so completely during season two of The Newsroom that it created a poisonous atmosphere on the set. It affected the entire show because Olivia was written to be such a prominent player this season. But by the end of the long shoot, Aaron and Jeff were barely speaking to her, and you can expect that in the third season, her role will be greatly diminished."
Munn, who plays economist Sloan Sabbith on the HBO program, is said to have overstepped her boundaries between the actors and writers on the set.
The source added: "Olivia was acting like one of his co-writers instead of like a professional actress, and Aaron didn't appreciate hearing her opinions on everything, especially since he took a real risk in the show's first year by hiring her."
HBO recently revealed that the show's third season will begin airing later this year.
