It’s nothing new that the most interesting love stories come from Hollywood and those who re-enact them in movies. This goes for John Mulaney and Olivia Munn as well.

If you are interested in finding out how they met and a couple of other interesting facts about the couple, you have come to the right place.

John Edmund Mulaney is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and producer.

When he was just seven, he joined the Chicago-based children’s sketch group called “The Rugrats”. Because of his involvement with the sketch group, he had a unique opportunity to star as Kevin in one of the most iconic movies of all time, “Home Alone”. 

However, his parents declined the opportunity. Talk about a missed chance, huh? 

John moved to New York after he graduated from Georgetown University back in 2004 to pursue a career in comedy. Although he started working for Comedy Central, he left to pursue a freelancing career.

How did John and Olivia meet?

As John was married to Anna Marie Tendler from 2014 to 2022, his relationship with Olivia came very abruptly and fans all over the world were shocked to find out about the relationship.  

Even though these two started dating literally in the last few months, they have already welcomed a child together. 

John filed for divorce in July 2021 and finalized it in January 2022; thus, we can only expect him to propose to the mother of his child sometime soon.

Reportedly, the couple first met way back in 2013 at Seth Meyer’s wedding and even though there were no indications of love back then, they continued to hang out from time to time strictly as friends. 

Munn later stated that she was obsessed with John from the day they met, but as he was newly engaged, there wasn’t much chance for them to be together.

Well, looks like fate had another thing coming.
