Olivia Munn has denied reports that she’s dating Chris Pratt by reaching out to his ex-wife, Anna Faris.
Over the weekend, it was reported that Chris and Olivia were spotted on a “romantic” dinner date in LA – however, the 37-year-old has since denied the dating claims.
The actress, who split from American football player Aaron Rodgers during the summer, proved that she’s not dating Chris by sharing a screenshot of a text exchange between her and Chris’ ex-wife Anna Faris on Instagram.
In the text, Olivia wrote, “Hey there! Sooo… I would never respond to random tabloid stories, but since we know each other I wanted to reach out to you personally to tell you the story about me and Chris dating has 0% truth.”

“I’m sure you already know it’s not true, or maybe didn’t care either way, but I just wanted to reach out personally to tell you it’s not true. Anyway, I hope you had an amazing holiday and an even better 2018”.
Anna responded by writing, “Hi!!!! Oh my god-this town is so f**king crazy-you are so sweet to text-I love you-having said that if you were my new sister in law I would be thrilled – let’s please catch up soon.”
Earlier this month, a source told OK! magazine that Chris and Olivia have been “secretly dating” for months – and alleged that the news had left Anna “furious” as Olivia and her ex-boyfriend previously hung out with the pair in their house.
Olivia and Chris appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2016, where they spoke about being on their double date.
“It started as a convenient rebound but blossomed into something very real and exciting. She and Chris really like each other,” the source said.
The Mail Online also added that Anna felt “betrayed”, as she also had Olivia on her podcast, in which she joked that Olivia was Chris’ dream woman.
Chris and Anna, who share their son Jack, announced their separation in August 2017 after eight years of marriage.
Anna is now reportedly dating cinematographer Michael Barrett.
