Many assume that celebrities are all part of some secret, exclusive club, where everyone knows each other and is quite aware of what they do for a living or why they’re famous in the first place.
Of course, no such club actually exists, so it makes complete sense that actress Olivia Munn had no idea who NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers was when they first met.
Promoting her new movie “Mortdecai” on “Conan” Tuesday night, Munn shed some light on her first interaction with the Green Bay Packers star.
“When I met him I asked what do you do and he said, ‘I play football,'” Munn said. “So I said, ‘Cool, what college?’ And he’s like, ‘Oh no, I play professional.’ So I said, ‘Cool, what position?’ And that was kind of it. I didn’t know he was a Super Bowl MVP or any of those things.
“All I saw was that he was really attractive. I didn’t really care what he did.”
The couple reportedly met at the Academy of Country Music Awards and have dated since April.
Evidently Munn doesn’t seem to follow the NFL much prior to meeting Rodgers. If she did beforehand, she’d of known he’s one of the most elite passers in the game and will likely win this season’s MVP award.
Many celebrity couples usually refuse to discuss their relationship with the public, e.g. rapper Jay Z and his superstar wife Beyoncé, but Munn has talked about Rodgers before.
Just last week Munn, 34, sat down with “Live with Kelly and Michael” and talked about how she attends every Packers home game. However, she was not reportedly in attendance the NFC Championship last week in Seattle, a game Green Bay lost 28-22 in overtime.
In her interview with O'Brien, Munn discussed how she has adapted to Green Bay, Wisconsin.
"Yeah, everybody's so great there and it's so comfortable," said Munn. She later discussed how she can handle Green Bay's cold weather.
