After rumors of a secret romance with fellow actor Chris Pratt surfaced, actress Olivia Munn took to social media over the weekend to set the record straight once and for all.
The Office Christmas Party star, who ended a three-year relationship with Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers almost a year ago, responded to a report by Entertainment Tonight which said the actress had been seen in a “romantic dinner” with Pratt, and that he “had his arm around her at one point.”
Tagging Pratt’s official account, Munn took to Twitter to debunk rumors of the alleged romance, following suggestions in the press that because of that said report, Anna Faris, Pratt’s ex-wife, was upset with her.
“Not every woman is scorned and upset after a breakup. Not every woman is “furious” at another woman for dating her ex […] Woman respect and love each other a lot more than some people like to think,” the actress wrote.
Munn’s statement came alongside a screenshot of a text conversation the actress had with Faris herself earlier this month, where the X-Men: Apocalypse star took the chance to clear-up the rumors directly with her.
“Since we know each other I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth,” Munn texted Faris. “I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true.”
On her part, Faris responded enthusiastically, thanking Munn for reaching out and even telling her she’d be “thrilled” to have her as a sister-in-law.
Chris Pratt officially filed for divorce from Anna Faris on December of 2017, putting a definitive end to their eight-year marriage. The couple announced their split earlier that year in August, taking their fans and the press by surprise.
Pratt and Faris share custody of their son Jack, whom they continue to co-parent. “Our son has two parents who love him very much,” the couple said in a joint statement announcing their separation.
After her break-up with Pratt, Anna Faris has been romantically linked to cinematographer Michael Barret. The couple has been seen out in public in numerous occasions. The two even went on vacation together in Italy back in November.
