Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL today. He’s won a Super Bowl and an MVP award with the Green Bay Packers so there’s really not much else he can accomplish in the league other than becoming the best QB of all time. Well, his overall stock has improved tremendously now that he’s dating actress Olivia Munn.
For those of you who don’t know who Munn is, she’s a television personality who has appeared in many television shows as well as movies. She’s currently one of the lead actresses in HBO’s The Newsroom and one of the top up-and-coming actresses in the entertainment industry.
Why is this such a big deal for a superstar NFL quarterback like Rodgers to date Munn?
Well, Rodgers has been reported to have been gay by some anonymous sources a few months back and he denied everything. People were skeptical and didn’t know whether to believe him because he’s never had a long-term relationship that has taken the sports world by storm.
Munn is helping him squash those rumors as the two have been long-time friends even before they have started dating. Multiple sources confirmed the relationship to Us Magazine and claimed that the two have been close for a while.
According to those sources:
“They were actually close friends before they even started dating, so they’ve been able to stay really good friends even through the breakup. It’s just made things much easier for both of them.”
The two were seen in public together at a restaurant, acting like a couple and being affectionate with each other, according to sources.
They actually appeared on stage together at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas in April 2014.
Rumors squashed… for now.
