Olivia Munn was among stars broadcasting their irritation at Los Angeles marathon runners on Sunday as she tweeted fans about being stuck in abysmal traffic.

The 32-year-old actress was irritated by the 26.2 mile trek staged from Dodger Stadium in trendy Echo Park to the Santa Monica Pier.

The annual event resulted in several street closures, compounding traffic problems in the already congested city as 24,000 runners pounded the pavement.

But Olivia wasn’t feeling inspired by the athletes’ dedication and instead was rather irritated.

“Dear LA Marathon Runner People, I hope it's as fun for you to run in as this traffic is for me to be in. Love, Oliviaxox,” she tweeted on Sunday afternoon.

Evan Rachel Wood echoed her feelings.

The pregnant actress is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell but had to cancel her prenatal yoga class because traffic was so bad.

“Was gonna prenatal yoga this morning, then remembered its the la marathon. No thanks! #traffic,” she wrote.

Not all celebrities were so upset by the gridlock.

Paula Abdul offered her support to athletes and organisers.

“Congratulations to all #LAMarathon runners, workers and volunteers! :)) xoP,” she tweeted.

The fastest time at the Los Angeles marathon went to Aleksandra Duliba who completed the run in an astonishing two hours 26 minutes and eight seconds.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
