Olivia Munn isn’t engaged and she has the texts to her mom to prove it


Last year, Olivia Munn only had Mortdecai to promote. This year, she has Ride Along 2, opening tomorrow, Three Seconds, Zoolander 2 and X-Men: Apocalypse, in which she plays Psylocke. (My resident X-Men expert gives her his thumbs up for this role, for what it’s worth.) Olivia has been dating Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, since May 2014, very shortly after she announced her split with Joel Kinnaman. Aaron and Olivia have been less ostentatious with their relationship, by Hollywood standards. Since they are coming up on two years of dating, the natural progression is for a tabloid to report an engagement. Olivia has denied an engagement by posting a screen shot of some texts she exchanged with her mother.

Chance, but the way, is Aaron and Olivia’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. You can see him here and doing so will improve whatever moment you are having right now. It must suck to have all these outlets saying you are already engaged so that when you finally do get engaged, instead of excited congratulations, people shrug and say, “yeah, we read that last month.”

Olivia and Aaron are no strangers to rumor denial. There was speculation in the press about Aaron’s sexuality before he started dating Olivia, but that was quashed by her oversharing in interviews and on social media. When a reporter suggested Aaron’s poor performance this season might be due to “something… going on in his personal life,” Olivia fired back on Twitter with, “Playing it fast & loose w/the journalism @RobDemovsky. Your professional skills are lacking… you must be having personal problems at home.” And now an Instagram to shoot down engagement rumors. Will they take to Snapchat to dismiss the baby rumors?

Olivia and her Ride Along 2 co-star, Kevin Hart, will compete on tonight’s episode of LL Cool J’s Lip Sync Battle. Olivia performs as Nelly and Kelly Rowland on “Dilemma.” She shows promise; but she won’t take Channing Tatum’s title.

And lastly, but likely most important, Olivia was wearing some serious boots in New York the other day. The jacket’s Balenciaga but I cannot find a designer on the boots, apologies the boots are Stuart Weitzman, thank you Loulou!

Who wore it best?

    I find Olivia annoying AF but I’m happy that her career has turned out to be rather solid post Newsroom and TDS because the way Jezebel/Gawker straight up bullied her for a time made me root for her. It was this weird bit with a slut shaming angle and I still remember the writer got in a bunch of arguments in the comment section about how Olivia was “only half Chinese” so she didn’t really fit the diversity angle or some dumb sh*t like that….and said writer was white. I guess it struck a cord with me because I’m mixed myself (although not Chinese) and the audacity of a white person to tell a person of color how to identify struck me as absurd.

    Also, she’s always been rather low key so I’m not surprised their relationship isn’t talked about.

      Am I the only one who found it weird that she referred to her mum as her “Asian mum”? Idk, I’m Chinese and felt like it was a weird addition, most people would just say mum right..? Or am I overanalysing..

      • Div says:

        I feel like she might be overly defensive after the Jezebel thing, even though it was like five years ago, where they basically accused her of playing up her ethnicity and not really being “Chinese” (gag about that Jez thing). Her mom’s English clearly isn’t the greatest and all I can think of is that maybe she thought some blog would accuse her of making the text up or something to “play up her ethnicity” (again gag) so she wanted to make it clear her mom truly did speak like that. I think I read that her Mom is from Vietnam but of Chinese descent and fled here during the war.

      • SugarQuill says:

        Out of context, I’d find it strange too. But Olivia always jokes about how her mom, even after all these years in the US, still “speaks in an accent and writes in one too” and she’s highlighted this before when sharing her mom’s text messages, so I don’t find it that odd under those circumstances.

      • Kristen says:

        I think she was saying that because the grammar in her mom’s texts is really bad to the point of not making sense. So she was probably explaining for her.

      • Anna says:

        I think you’re overanalysing a bit (but I’m not Asian so opinion doesn’t really matter on issues like this). I’ve followed Olivia for a while and any time she’s posting things involving her mum she slips in that her mum is Asian so that people don’t start going after her mum for bad grammar or spelling and can know that English isn’t her first language. Plus she’s always been open and proud of being Asian so I don’t think (to her at least) she’s saying it with any negative connotations.

        “Colberto” is so funny and cute!

      • tealily says:

        I took it as an explanation of the grammatical errors.

      • Canadian Becks says:

        Right, because everyone practices PERFECT grammar and PERFECT spelling when they text. That’s why she never fails to remind people her mom is Asian, to explain why her mom’s texts are so drastically different from everyone else’s.

        Give me a break.

    That’s a very sweet – and smart – way of dispelling a rumor. Also, it looks as if she and her mom have a very good relationship – and her family likes the guy she’s dating.

    • Erinn says:

      Those are always great things. I’m not a huge fan of hers – I couldn’t handle her on Jon Stewarts show as a correspondent. But I’ve seen her in the odd thing here and there that I genuinely enjoyed her in.

      I also think she’s ridiculously pretty. And that dog! He is the sweetest. I’m going to have to follow her on instagram for Chance photos.

  3. Loulou says:

    She tagged the boots Stuart Weitzman in the IG pic…

  4. Esmom says:

    “Oh man you see everyone I love.” It’s so cute how star struck her mom is, I’d be the same way I’m sure.

  5. littlemissnaughty says:

    I really like her. Hiring her for TDS was ill-advised but I loved her on The Newsroom and generally like her interviews. Also, goddamn it, she is crazy gorgeous. She never pretends that she doesn’t use social media for (some would say shameless) self-promotion and I respect that.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Yeah, me too. I loved her on Newsroom and I like her in interviews. And she’s stunning.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    If you generate headlines saying something didn’t happen, does that mean you actually achieved stardom? Or is it just a slow news day?

  7. kai says:

    Why does she look so different? Did she hae something done around her eyes?

  8. Lbliss says:

    I still think she looks a bit too “awake” from her eye lid procedure. Maybe it was too aggressive? She still looks gorg either way.

  9. Wentworth Miller says:

    I discovered Joel Kinnaman in The Killing (of Rosie Larson). Great series, that they really f’d up at the end of the first season.
    I’m still not sure who she is.

  10. tealily says:

    That’s… actually pretty adorable.

  11. Me ThreeI says:

    I don’t know why but I just can’t like her. Maybe it’s from her time on TDS. She was horrible. And, from what I saw of her “career” prior to TDS, she was basically a bunny on some men’s network. She just seems like so many in celebritydom who either got where they are by having the right family members (nepotism) or solely because of how they look.
