Olivia Munn had no idea Aaron Rodgers was an NFL star

Wednesday January 21st, 2015

Anyone under the assumption that actress Olivia Munn only pursued a relationship with Aaron Rodgers because he's an accomplished NFL star should think again. 

Munn made an appearance on Conan Tuesday night and said that when she first met the Packers' Super Bowl MVP quarterback, she had no idea he was a huge NFL star.

Conan: "He's an extremely famous athlete, very well known, but when you met him, you didn't know who he was..."

Munn: "No, I had no idea. When I met him, I said, 'So, what do you do?'

He said, 'Oh, I play football.'

I said, 'Cool, what college?'

He's like, 'Oh no, I play professional.'

I go, 'Cool, what position?' He's like, 'Quarterback.'


That was kind of it, not knowing that he's, like, Super Bowl MVP or any of those things. All I saw was that he was, like, really attractive. I didn't really care what he did."

Munn told a similar story about meeting Cowboys coach Jason Garrett when she appeared on SI Now in 2013.
