Us Weekly: Olivia Munn & Joel Kinnaman broke up ‘a few months ago’


Breakups all over the place! It’s exciting. In a sad way, I guess, only I can’t help but crack a smile with this breakup news. According to Us Weekly, Joel Kinnaman and Olivia Munn are dunzo and have been for “several months.” According to photo agency archives, it seems like the last time they were photographed together was Valentine’s Day of this year. Olivia was with Joel as he promoted Robocop, but then she did the Oscar parties alone. What’s weird is that she JUST name-dropped Joel in her Allure cover interview for the May issue (which would have been done around the time of the breakup).

And that’s the way it is! Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman are done, multiple sources exclusively confirm to Us Weekly. The insiders add that the stars, who were first confirmed as a couple back in March 2012, have both been single for several months now.

“They ended things a few months ago but both seem fine,” one source tells Us. “A lot had to do with distance. He’s back filming in Toronto and she’s now in L.A. for good.”

The Swedish-American actor, 34, who stars on Netflix’s cult show The Killing, and the Newsroom actress, 33, were last photographed together back in February in NYC. Kinnaman, who was in town to promote the reboot of RoboCop, planted kisses on his girlfriend as the two sat courtside at a Knicks game. He also stopped by the Today show and said of Munn, “She’s a hoot, she’s a lot of fun.”

Munn and Kinnaman first met back in 2011. “They were actually close friends before they even started dating,” adds a second insider, “so they’ve been able to stay really good friends even through the breakup. It’s just made things much easier for both of them.”

Showing no signs of trouble in paradise, Munn recently gushed of Kinnaman in the May 2014 issue of Allure magazine. “If there was ever going to be a girl who would want her man to bring home a RoboCop suit, it would be me,” she told the beauty mag. “Joel is truly fantastic in it.”

Munn’s history of dating hot men — suit and tie included — is extensive. The Newsroom standout has been linked to hockey hunk Brad Richards, and had a fling with Justin Timberlake back in September 2010. She also dated Star Trek franchise hottie Chris Pine from 2009 to 2010.

I always forget about Olivia and Chris Pine. Why do I have no memory of that? It’s weird gossip-block to have. I do remember that she fooled around with Justin Timberlake when he was dating Jessica Biel, and I remember that Olivia pretty much went to Us Weekly and gave them the story because she honestly thought JT was going to dump Biel for her. It was a revenge thing. So… yeah, I don’t know much about Joel, but he seems too level-headed to deal with Olivia’s drama for too long. I’m kind of surprised they lasted as long as they did.

    haha no he loves drama. But after Robocop semi-flopped Olivia probably wanted to find someone higher on the totem pole.

    Joel can do better 🙂

    • Eve says:

      EXACTLY! *points to self frantically*

      • T.fanty says:

        This is a sign. A sign that it’s to STEP AWAY FROM THE HIDDLECONDA.

      • Eve says:

        But I’m not quite there yet!!! I’m INNOCENT of trying to grab the Hiddleconda!!!

        I conditioned my return to the Drangogly army to Crimson Peak’s living up to my expectations! I’ve been flirting with the Hiddleconda but that’s mostly because of those pictures from CP’s set.

      • T.fanty says:

        Oh, I forgot that was a Del Toro thing as much as anything else. You are temporarily excused. But I have my eye on you.

      • Eve says:


        By the way, 26 comments and 9 of them are mine. Time to step away from the thread, methinks?…

  4. Jegede says:

    Right after Robocop flopped I’m sure, right Olivia?

    • Jessica says:

      Haha! I knew she would get rid of him if Robocop flopped! I love how her PR is implying it was the long distance thing that broke them up. More like Robocop’s opening weekend numbers. I’m guessing shortly after that she decided to cut her losses and give him his walking papers when it became obvious he wasn’t getting a franchise.

      Or maybe he isn’t as stupid as he seems and finally had enough of all her bull$#!t. But that’s probably giving him too much credit. He stayed with her for 2 years so what does that say about him? Too bad he isn’t as cool as Holder. : (

    Somewhere out there Lainey is crying!

    • Eve says:

      Yeah, right? I never understood why she was so excited about these two together — maybe because Munn is half Chinese Lainey felt somewhat connected? That’s so strange to me. I don’t give a flying f*ck to Brazilians JUST because they married some Hollywood actor/actress (for instance — I couldn’t care less about Camila Alves) .

      • Jessica says:

        Thank you! I don’t understand why she suddenly became a Munn fan when she never had been in the past. But a week or two ago I said how disgusted I was by the way she appeared to now be kissing up to Munn and I think my comment was deleted for some reason.

  6. Eve says:

    About Robocop flopping: the movie’s budget was $100 million and it made $241 million back (mostly the overseas market). It may have underperformed, but it sure wasn’t a flop.

  7. MonicaQ says:

    I still only remember her from G4/Tech TV, is that sad?

    • FLORC says:

      No. That’s as far as my memory goes too.
      Did you know she was in Magic Mike? She did a topless scene. No one cared and she began trying to bring up in random interviews that she went topless. It seemed very desperate.

      • Jessica says:

        Did she really do that? I know she’s desperate, but I thought her thing now was to pretend to be more respectable.

  8. LadyRay says:

    we need more Joel on celebitchy

    • THIS.
      Less Cumberbatch, more Kinnaman!

    • ds says:

      Yes, why not. He looks rather interesting. Much better pick from A. Skarsgard. Visually at least. Btw I was totally surprised with how little my Swedish friends thought of Skarsgard. Never asked about Kinnaman though, never seen him act so…

      • Jen says:

        Swedish people are obsessed with nepotism. They think all the Skarsgard kids got their fame because of Stellan. At least for Alex, he left Sweden because he wasn’t getting the roles he wanted, and in America no one gives a crap about Stellan.

      • bammer says:

        What do your Swedish friends think of Alex? Do you mean personality wise or acting skills? Just curious.

      • ds says:

        I get it about nepotism, but they think Bill is the next great thing – they think he’s a great potential. They didn’t really say much; it’s just their reaction when I mentioned Alex they were all meh about him, like there are so many much better actors out there (you’re right that sounds like nepotism problem) plus I’ll never forget their reaction when I said that he’ll probably always play a hot guy – they didn’t really think he’s hot 🙂 They all think Gustaf is a douche bag though.

      • Eve says:

        Oh noes! Kinnaman is VERY good friends with Gustaf — this is not a good sign.

      • Jen says:

        Bill and Gustaf have mainly only been in Swedish movies/tv series, so Swedish people have seen more of them. Alex only had a few big roles in Sweden, and they were usually as the goofy ladies man or whatever. And I don’t know about Gustaf being a douchebag, but he is definitely incredibly pretentious. But anyway, we’re getting off topic lol, so I’ll say that Joel and Gustaf are BFFs, whatever you want to read into that.

    • ds says:

      Maybe it’s just a thing between men – my friends are all guys… I’ll have to investigate this a bit more this summer 🙂

  9. magpie says:

    I still haven’t forgotten those sexy pics with super skanky quotes she sent to PIne. And the Brett Ratner thing. She hit that and still told the story about him jerking off while eating shrimp in her book. And then Timberlake…yes that was total revenge PR. I no likey Munn, sorry, so now you can post tons of pics of Joel.

  10. Kali says:

    Ok, I really hope I’m not the only one who is seeing this but that pic of him with the longer blonde hair – I’m getting total Chris Evans/Captain America vibes. Or at least his tortured earnest indie hipster cousin.

  11. Jen says:

    I wonder who Olivia will go after now. With The Newsroom ending and no other projects lined up, she’ll need someone more famous.

    • Jessica says:

      But isn’t she pretty much still a joke? Who could she get? I thought the main reason she went after Joel was because he was new on the scene and maybe didn’t know that he was supposed to be ashamed to be seen with her.

  12. Lori says:

    Maybe he lost interest after she started seriously messing with her face?

    • pretty kitty says:

      ooh yeah they were reportedly kaput right after valentines day when she got face-o-fillers for oscars.. hmmmm i can see the swedes who like the natural look.. being turned off by filler face munn

      • Lori says:

        Also it looks like she did the eye surgery to make her eyes less Asian looking. Shame………it was nicer looking before she started to mess with her face.

  13. KatNotNice says:

    Good! Now I can make my move! Joel, I’m comiiiiing!

  14. JEM says:

    What’s up, vintage playa?

  15. P.J. says:

    I like Olivia enough-she seems like she’d be a great partying/drinking/dancing girlfriend to have around-and I kind of “got” them together as a couple-they certainly looked great together-but oh my God this MAN 😍

    I picked up the first season of The Killing on DVD a few months ago to (skeptically) see what all the hype was about and immediately found myself hooked! While Mirielle Enos is certainly wonderful in her portrayal of Detective Linden, I must admit that it really was Joel’s sexy/sort of trashy portrayal of her parter and THAT VOICE that kept me coming back through season two which I found to be really slow and not nearly as compelling as season 1. I really, really like him and if we have to chose freakishly handsome, crazy tall Hollywood Swedes to bed, I’m 100% going Kinnaman over Skaarsgard ANY day ❤️

  16. Illyra says:

    He’s really, REALLY beautiful. I love him as Holder.

  17. Fan says:

    More kinnaman!!!!!!!

  18. Mickey says:

    YESSSS!!! He will be mine!!!!
