Olivia Munn's Mom Says Aaron Rodgers is a Big Deal on Vietnamese Blogs
By Antoinette Bueno
Even Olivia Munn's mom is a big fan of her boyfriend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
ET recently caught up with the 35-year-old Ride Along 2 star, when she explained the hilarious family group text she Instagrammed last month. The texts came right after Rodgers dramatically threw a Hail Mary pass to win the game against the Detroit Lions.
"My mom speaks in an accent and writes in one too," Munn smiled.
Clearly, Rodgers has impressed her mother, Kim, a Chinese descendant born and raised in Vietnam.
"My mom, that's how she texts, she's like, 'You tell Aaron Rodgers I think he number one quarterback! And you let him know Asians love Aaron Rodgers! You know people on Vietnamese blog talk about Aaron Rodgers, that's big deal!'" Munn laughed. "As if that was a big worry to him ... "
"For her, when you've made it to the Vietnamese blogs, you've made it," she added. "She's like, 'He needs to know, big deal, Vietnamese blog!' She thinks it's the best thing ever."
On a more serious note, the Mortdecai actress said her family is definitely a big supporter of her man, who's she's been dating since May 2014.
"My family just loves him so much, they're so invested," she said. "They all watch [his games] and if it's too much they can't watch."
And though the NFL playoffs start this weekend, Munn said her and Rodgers' relationship doesn't change despite all the added pressure.
"He's always so cool and calm and he's not a superstitious guy like that," Munn said. "Right now I think it's just a lot of time at work. Whatever they gotta do, it happens at the facility, not at home. Home has a place where it has to be just calm and chill. Everything else happens at work, so I actually don’t know what changes at work, but at home it's the same."
Munn also admitted that she didn't even know who Rodgers was when they first met at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in April 2014, when they presented an award together.
"I met him and I said, 'What do you do?' [He said] 'I play football,' and I'm like, 'Cool, what college?' and he's like, 'Uh no, I just ... I'm the MVP,'" she joked. "But he's not that guy at all, so he just goes, 'Oh, no, I play professional."
