Olivia Munn Shuts Down Aaron Rodgers Engagement Rumors With Hilarious Text Message
By Sophie Schillaci
No nuptials here!
Olivia Munn hilariously shut down rumors that she's engaged to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Tuesday, sharing a screencap of her text message history with her mother.
Responding to her mom, who asked why the actress didn't inform her of the engagement, Munn quipped: "Oh my gosh, Mom. No. You know you shouldn't believe gossip on the Internet. If I was engaged, I promise you'd be like, the eighth person to know. Maybe ninth. But definitely way before the Internet."
In her caption, Munn explained why she chose to address the rumors head-on. "Answering 'Yes' or 'No' to personal questions can be tricky because if you say 'No' it means whenever you say 'No comment,' that kind of becomes your default 'Yes,'" she wrote. "But since I'm doing press for the next few days, I didn't want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I'm going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out."
Looks like Munn's mama is all ready to tune in for the Ride Along 2 star's small screen promo -- adorably asking her to pass along a message to Kelly Ripa and typo-ing Stephen Colbert's name.
"I see you going to be on Kelly and Michael show," the screencap reads. "Tell her I love her. She so delicate, work out a lot I think. And Colberto, too! Oh man, you see everyone I love."
Munn's mother seems to have no problem keeping up with Rodgers online. In an interview with ET earlier this month, Munn joked about another recent text exchange.
"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."
