What happened between Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman?

Over the years, Olivia Munn has been romantically involved with several of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. The Newsroom actor dated Chris Pine for several months, and Munn reportedly had a brief fling with Justin Timberlake. These dates came before she started dating Joel Kinnaman.

Munn’s relationship with The Killing star was confirmed in March 2012. “They met last year, but just before Christmas,” a source told E! news back then. The two actors had more in common than fame. “They are on the same wavelength intellectually and have the same sense of humor,” the source added. The pair went beyond a casual date when Munn headed to her boyfriend’s home country of Sweden to visit his family. “I left last summer. I had not [the pickled fish]she told People in 2013 while jokingly knocking on Sweden’s kitchen. “My friend’s father is a really great cook and he was in Laos for [a] He actually made a lot of food,” she added.

The difference between the United States and Sweden was evident to Kinnaman beyond the food. In an interview, the “Altered Carbon” actor compared the women from both countries. “I feel like successful American women are tougher than Swedish women – they make their space,” he told Cosmopolitan in February 2014. Kinnaman added that his favorite date of all time was the one that got him Munn. Unfortunately, their relationship ended soon after.

Olivia Munn made a quick switch from Joel Kinnaman

Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman didn’t keep their relationship a secret and spoke to the press about each other. In fact, the celebrity couple was spotted exchanging kisses at the Los Angeles airport in February 2014. However, this came while the pair were reportedly struggling, as it became apparent in the months to come. By April 2014, Munn and Kinnaman officially quit. “They ended things a few months ago, but they both seem fine,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.

The split wasn’t caused by a giant fight, but by logistics. “A lot had to do with the distance. He’s shooting in Toronto again and she’s in LA forever now,” added the source. The split came as a surprise to fans, as the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ actor opened up earlier this month about how Kinnaman’s new high-profile role suits them both perfectly. “If there was ever a girl who wanted her man to bring home a RoboCop suit, it would be me,” Munn told Allure in April 2014.

A month later, Munn was involved in another high-profile relationship. The “Office Christmas Party” star made headlines when she attended the Annual Academy of Country Music Awards with Aaron Rodgers in May 2014. Apparently, Munn and the Green Bay Packers quarterback were “close friends before they even started dating,” as an insider told Us Weekly. Despite the quick turnaround, Munn appeared to remain on good terms with Kinnaman.

Exactly three years to the month after Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman officially split, the “Ocean’s Eight” actor split from Aaron Rodgers. “They ended their three-year relationship amicably,” a source told People, adding that they are still “close friends.” This news came just months after rumors circulated that the actor and the NFL star were engaged.

Meanwhile, in 2019, Kinnaman began dating Victoria’s Secret model Kelly Gale. Two years later, in January 2021, the “Suicide Squad” star popped the question to Gale and announced the engagement with an Instagram post. Munn popped up in the comments section, suggesting there were no hard feelings between the former couple. She responded with four “100” emojis per person.

Later that year, Munn made headlines in the dating news again when she was romantically linked to comedian John Mulaney in May 2021. The couple are known to have had a son together in November of this year. Despite their seemingly whirlwind romance, Munn and Mulaney were in no rush to tie the knot. “She really wants to enjoy this time as a new mom,” a source told Us Weekly on June 30.
