Olivia Munn doesn’t travel anywhere without her hot water bottle.
The 38-year-old actress has shared her top tip for travelling, which involves taking a hot water bottle with her on all her flights, and getting the fight attendants to fill it with boiling water.
The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ star admits the staff on her planes are often ”surprised” by her request, but insists the warm pouch ”makes every flight so comfortable”.
She said: ”Honest to goodness, my best travel hack is bringing a hot water bottle with you on the plane. Cheap, from the drug store, you bring it on the plane and you get the flight attendant to fill it up with boiling hot water, which they always have for their hot teas and their coffee. It makes every flight so comfortable. I do that before the flight takes off and I’ve always noticed that they’re surprised that I have it.”
And when she’s on a long haul flight, ‘The Predator’ actress makes sure she treats herself with a massage as soon as she lands.
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, she added: ”My gosh, whenever I travel … especially whenever you’re flying so long, I love to get a great massage or facial.”
Meanwhile, the actress recently opened up on her battle with ”anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression”, which she says she’s been struggling with for most of her adult life.
In an Instagram post uploaded following the death of TV chef Anthony Bourdain, Olivia wrote: ”I have lived with anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression for most of my adult life. 10 years ago I tackled it, learned to fully understand it and haven’t felt the dark depths of depression in about a decade. But before that, thoughts of suicide crossed my mind more than a few times. For those who don’t understand depression, when someone is in that place it’s not because they want to die… it’s because the ongoing, relentless darkness is too painful to endure anymore. (sic)”
