For the record, Olivia Munn is definitely not engaged. The 35-year-old appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' chat show this week, and categorically denied recent reports that she and Greenbay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are getting married.

"We are not engaged. Not engaged," she told her host, adding that the rumour started with a false story in a magazine - which snowballed to such an extent that even her family started to believe it.

Olivia Munn has confirmed she is not engaged to Aaron Rodgers



"Everybody started going with it. It was kind of strange," she said. "I didn't think anybody believed it until my family started texting me.

"My sister said, 'This is so stupid. Why would anybody think this? You're not engaged, it's so stupid.' And then the next text after that was, 'But seriously, are you engaged because I'm like seeing it everywhere?'"

The Ride Along 2 actress then revealed that even her mother started to believe the hype. "My mum believes everything she reads online. Everything she reads online!" she said. "So no, she didn't believe it, or she did believe it, but I was able to correct her and she knows for sure that it's not (true)… As soon as I say 'No, it's not true' she believes it."

The sweet couple have been dating since May 2014

Olivia has been dating NFL star Aaron since May 2014 – and has been denying news of their engagement since the start of the year.

Earlier this month she shared the hilarious text exchange she had with her Chinese mother when the news first broke. "Oh man you engagement?? You know we love Aaron. I pray say thanks for him all the times. I bet Chance happy. Hey why don't you tell me first?" her mum wrote.

"Oh my gosh mom no," Olivia replied. "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 the 9th. But definitely way before the internet." Her mum responded: "Okay sounds good" and then let her daughter know she's jealous that she was getting to meet 'Colberto' – Stephen Colbert - on the Late Show that day.

The X-Men: Apocalypse actress captioned the screenshot by explaining how answering 'No comment' in an interview is often interpreted as a "default Yes". So instead, "I'm going to let my text conversation with my Asian mum help me out. #Colberto."
