If you stumble upon a tabloid article that claims Olivia Munn and newly divorced Justin Theroux are dating, it’s not true. The actress took to Instagram Stories to shut down a dating rumor before the rumor even had time to go to print. Unfortunately, this is the second time in 2018 that she’s had to speak out about her dating life. In January, some outlets reported she was dating Chris Pratt, and Munn swiftly shut that down as well. Attention phony gossip gods: Stop pairing Munn with the divorcée of the day. It’s not cool.
Munn received a text from her publicist that In Touch was “preparing” a story about her and Theroux dating. Munn, clearly not one to be had, took the conversation to her Instagram stories and shut👏🏽 it👏🏽 down.
“In Touch is preparing a story about Olivia Munn and Justin Theroux. Sources tell In Touch Olivia and Justin are growing close together and they are heading towards a romance,” the text from her publicist read.
“Oh my god. That is so stupid,” Munn texted back.
Munn followed up the text screenshot with the following:
She’s, of course, referring to the aforementioned Chris Pratt reports, which she kindly shut down by texting her friend Anna Faris that there was no truth to the dating rumors. In the case of the Theroux rumor, Munn is also friendly with Jennifer Aniston.
We don’t know how or why these rumors start? If you search Olivia Munn and Justin Theroux on Google, you’ll find a bunch of videos of them promoting The Lego Ninjago Movie, and quite frankly, they have a brother-sister vibe in the interviews.
Just another day being a very famous person, we suppose. In the meantime, can y’all let Olivia Munn live?
