Olivia Munn Refutes 'Engagement'— With Her Mom

Rumors flew through the gossip media Tuesday that Olivia Munn and Aaron Rodgers got engaged, but Munn made it clear the rumors were not true in a rather clever way: She posted a text message exchange she had with her mom on the subject, the Los Angeles Times reports. "Oh man you engagement??" reads her mom's text. "You know we love Aaron. I pray say thanks for him all the times. I bet [your dog] Chance happy. Hey why don't you tell me first?" Munn's response: "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 8th person to know. Maybe 9th. But definitely way before the Internet."

"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,'" Munn wrote on Instagram alongside the screenshot of the texts. "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." Her mom's good-natured final text response, by the way? "Okay sound good. I see you going to be on Kelly and Michael show. Tell her I love her. She so delicate, work out a lot I think. And Colberto too! Oh man you see everyone I love. Okay I have to go. Tell Aaron and Chance I said hi." (Click for more of Munn's mom's thoughts on Rodgers.)
