My Houzz: Olivia Munn Lifts Her Mum's Spirits With a New Kitchen
If you observe actor Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse, Iron Man 2) and her mum, Kim Schmid, for even a moment, you’ll see that they have a special bond. They joke often and laugh easily. “My mother and all of her uniqueness has definitely shaped who I am today,” says Munn.
Much of their bond developed over home-cooked meals made by Schmid, a refugee from the Vietnam War. Recently, Munn surprised her 155-centimetre-tall mum with an overhaul of her Oklahoma City kitchen to make it easier for her to use. Now she can cook large family meals without the need for a step stool.
