Olivia Munn graces the cover of Good Housekeeping magazine and talked about her boyfriend NFL quarterback Aaron Rogers and their rescue dog, Chance. The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ star also poses for a summery photo shoot.
The 35-year-old actress is among the stellar cast of the much-anticipated ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ due out next spring, but for all the fanfare over the movie at Comic-Con one would be forgiven for thinking it’s due out next week!
But in the meantime, Olivia Munn is drawing attention even if she won’t be lighting up the big screen as the dangerously sexy mutant Psylocke just yet.
In her ‘Good Housekeeping’ cover and photo shoot (a pic is below!) she’s still got down-to-earth allure. In the interview, she had high words for her boyfriend Aaron Rogers, who’s quarterback for the NFL Green Bay Packers. While some celebrities are understandably reticent on personal relationships, at least in this interview, Munn was quite candid, indeed gushing.
She said of him, “My boyfriend’s healthiness inspires me. Aaron is different than every other man I’ve ever met…there’s so much I could say. Everything a good person can be, he is. He’s in such great shape, and especially lately, he’s been eating so well and working out. Having somebody in your life like that is so motivating.”
She also spoke of highly of her Rodger’s dog Chance; it is he she poses with in the picture below. The rescue dog has made the couple a trio! She said, “I wasn’t looking for a dog at all, and then I saw this little guy and was like, ‘I have to have him.’ [Chance’s good behavior] around Aaron is a direct reflection of how Aaron has been training him – how much respect Aaron has for Chance, and how much respect Chance has for him.”
She went on to say, “I’m like ‘You’re my baby. You can do whatever you want!’ I realize now how important it is for me to be a good parent to him, because it’s a direct reflection of me.
She went on to say, “Chance made us a family…he and Aaron have changed my life in every way. My world has become so much brighter, sweeter and lovelier. I feel grounded with them in my life.”
And as she revealed, these are not just words of sentiment. Chance, like Aaron, has helped her in coping with her anxiety disorder which she has been public about. As Good Housekeeping notes, she began suffering from trichotillomania, a hair-pulling condition associated with OCD, when at age 26 she started pulling out her eyebrows. The publication further notes that with exercise, therapy, and rest she is able to cope with it.
Opening up, she said, “I was having a tough time earlier this year; one day I broke down on the floor, crying,’Chance came up and snuggled with me. He’s so smart, so kind… he’s got my heart.’
