She returned to Oklahoma as a teenager, and subsequently earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism at the University of Oklahoma, intending to become a broadcast journalist. After interning at a news station in Tulsa, Munn relocated to Los Angeles, where she began her professional career as a television host for the gaming network G4, primarily on the series Attack of the Show! from 2006 until 2010. She was also a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart from 2010 to 2011.Munn occasionally worked as an actress in the late 2000s as well, appearing in a lead role on the television series Beyond the Break from 2006 to 2009, as well in supporting parts in the comedy films Big Stan (2007) and Date Night (2010), the superhero film Iron Man 2 (2010), and Steven Soderbergh's comedy-drama Magic Mike (2012).In 2012, Munn was cast as Sloan Sabbith in Aaron Sorkin's HBO political drama series The Newsroom, and appeared on the series for all three seasons.

Lisa Olivia Munn was born in Oklahoma City July 3, 1980 to Kimberly (née Nguyen) and Winston Munn. Her father is of German, Irish, and English ancestry while her mother is from Vietnam of Chinese descent. Her mother fled to the United States as a Vietnamese refugee in 1975 after the Vietnam War, and settled in Oklahoma where she met Munn's father. Munn has one younger brother, John, a physicist; one older brother, James, a custom motorcycle shop owner; and two older sisters, Annie and Sara, the latter of whom is a lawyer.When Munn was two years old, her parents divorced and her mother remarried to a member of the United States Air Force. The family relocated to Utah, where they resided until 1986, when Munn's stepfather was transferred to the Yokota Air Base near Tachikawa in Tokyo, Japan, where she ultimately spent her formative years. Munn has said that her stepfather was "verbally abusive" and demeaning. "When [he] would be screaming his head off in the living room, I would hustle everybody into my room and launch into imitations of teachers or do scenes from movies," she recalled. "And that would take their minds off of the hell that was happening down the hall."Munn's mother divorced her stepfather when she was 16 years old, and Munn moved back to Oklahoma City with her mother and siblings. She attended Putnam City North High School for her junior and senior years of high school. After graduating, Munn attended the University of Oklahoma where she earned a B.A. in journalism with a minor in Japanese and dramatic arts.
