Olivia looks so different in her throwback

Appearing on CBS recently, that star explained: "There has been this underlying lesson in our life which was, 'don't cause any waves' because as second-class citizens in our own country, the idea that any of our pain or our frustrations or anything could cause waves and ripples or create any more tension onto us was a really bad thing."

The Predator star added that this was a key reason in the under-reporting of hate crimes as people had been taught to "literally take it on the chin and keep going".

She continued, saying that the Asian community had been "raised right" by their parents, but that it was now the job of the younger generation to show them that they belong and should feel safe in the country.
