Olivia Munn and John Mulaney may have just started dating, but it seems like the actress had her eye fixed on him for years. A source told People that the new couple “met at church in Los Angeles,” but noted that they “first connected socially several years ago and remained friendly.”
Both attended Seth Myers’ wedding to wife Alexi Ashe in Martha’s Vineyard in 2013. Olivia Munn was there with then-boyfriend Will Forte. There is even an image of “The Newsroom,” star posing with Ashe in an article Mulaney wrote about the festivities for Vogue.
In a 2015 HuffPost Live interview, Olivia Munn talked about being at a wedding with both Mulaney and his now ex-wife Anna Marie Tendler and being “obsessed” with him. “We were at a wedding together and I was like ‘Oh my gosh, do you and your fiancé want to go have dinner or something and go hang out?” she said.
“At first it was cool, and then I kept going up to him at the wedding like ‘So, you having fun?'” she said. “I was just so obsessed with hanging out with and talking with him.” Olivia Munn added that she emailed the then-engaged comic but he never emailed back. “I might’ve got the wrong email — probably. That’s what I tell myself,” she said.
Looks like he finally responded!
