They are two of the most well-versed and interesting personalities in their respective fields, and with Hollywood and professional sports pairings on the rise in recent years, it’s no surprise Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn are dating.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback and the Newsroom actress seem to come from different backgrounds. Rodgers was born in California and grew up an athlete. Munn was born in Oklahoma City, attended the University of Oklahoma and tried her hand at broadcast journalism before eventually moving onto an acting career.
Despite their differences, Rodgers and Munn make one of the entertainment world’s most interesting couples.
Here’s what you need to know about their relationship:
1. Rodgers & Munn Started Dating in May 2014
On May 14, 2014, it was confirmed that the couple was seen spotted together in Malibu out to dinner together.
Their relationship has grown in recent months. One of the more sweeter stories is when Rodgers bought Munn a specific ring she had seen — a non-wedding ring — because she really wanted it, and he thought it would be a nice gesture to purchase it.
2. Rodgers Has Denied Rumors That He’s Gay
Towards the end of 2013 and early 2014, there were rumors that the alleged falling out that occurred between Rodgers and his personal assistant and then roommate Kevin Lanflisi involved a possible relationship between the two.
In a December 2013 radio interview with ESPN Milwaukee, Rodgers came out to deny the allegations. In the interview, Rodgers said:
“I’m not gay. I really, really like women.”
3. Munn Is an Avid Fan and Supporter of Rodgers & the Packers
Despite her busy schedule, Munn attends every Packers home game — or at least tries to — to support her boyfriend.
In a recent interview on “Live With Kelly & Michael,” Munn opens up about how she spends her time:
“Every home game, I’m definitely there. I’m in awe of what they do! It’s really tough. The away games, that’s when I go off and do my work.”
Rodgers and Munn also have a bizarre and hilarious agreement where they don’t have sex on of his game days.
4. Munn Had Recently Gotten Out of a Long-term Relationship When She Started Dating Rodgers
From March 2012, Munn had been dating actor and RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman for two years prior to officially announcing her relationship with Rodgers.
In April 2014, it was confirmed that the couple had been separated for at least several months, although there is no specific date of the breakup.
5. Both Rodgers and Munn Are Worth a Ton of Money
How individually successful is each of the pair?
Well, Rodgers is technically the NFL’s highest-paid player at his position. In 2014, Rodgers signed a 5-year, $110 million contract, an average annual salary of $22 million per season.
That’s chump change in comparison to his girlfriend.
In 2015, Munn took the top-spot in People With Money’s list of the top 10 highest-paid actresses. To compare, Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bundchen, a renowned supermodel, made $47 million last year.
