Olivia Munn opened up about her ex-boyfriend Aaron Rodgers and the difficult relationship he has with his family. The actress went on Andy Cohens Sirius XM show, Radio Andy, on Wednesday and talked about all the drama.

 

Munn said that Rodgers didn't have a problem with her talking about him when they were dating. They split up last April after a nearly 3-year long relationship, and she hasn't spoken that much about him since.

I spent the day in my trailer just encouraging him to have an honest conversation with your parents, and we just kind of did bullet points.

The actress says she was friendly with his younger brother Jordan (who went on The Bachelorette) and she met his parents a couple of times. She says Aaron was pretty distant from his family before they started dating and she encouraged him to make amends with them.

 

"Before he and I started dating he hadnt spoken to the parents and one brother for, like, eight months before we started dating. And actually, I remember my last day on The Newsroom ... Munn said. "I spent the day in my trailer just encouraging him to have an honest conversation with your parents, and we just kind of did bullet points. And then they had a really nice conversation, and they started coming out my first year when I was in Green Bay in 2014, and then it just [went south]."

Munn thinks the root of the problem is that his family is so connected to his success and that they tie their careers to his.

 

"I do believe that family and fame and success can be really complicated if their dreams are connected to your success. My family, my younger brother is getting his PhD in physics, my sister graduated magna cum laude from law school, my stepfather is a doctor, my brother has a custom motorcycle business," she explained. "Nobody wants to be famous. My mom is a little old Asian lady -- couldnt be more little or more old or Asian if you tried. There is no connection with the dreams that they want to do in business to my career."
