John Mulaney and Olivia Munn are thought to be dating (Picture: Getty)2021 has already thrown a lot of celeb dating curveballs at us – from Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, to Kat Dennings and Andrew W.K. getting engaged, to the apparent reunion of Bennifer.
Now, another surprise couple has been thrown in the mix, as John Mulaney is reportedly dating Olivia Munn.
Just days after it was announced that John, 38, was divorcing his wife Anna Marie Tendler, it has been claimed that he is seeing The Newsroom star Olivia, 40.
A source told People: ‘This is very new, they’re taking it slowly. They met at church in Los Angeles.’
Olivia and John have known each other for a few years now, and in 2015, Olivia heaped praise on the comedian, saying she had met John and his then fiancee Anna Marie at a wedding.
She told HuffPost Live: ‘I was like, “Oh my gosh, do you and your fiancé want to go have dinner or something and go hang out?” I was just so obsessed with hanging out with and talking with him.’
Then in December 2020, when it was reported that John was entering rehab for drug addiction, the actress tweeted: ‘Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this.’
Despite their friendship, this news has come out of left field for many, and the internet had some feelings about the news.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that John and his wife Anna Marie were splitting after six years of marriage, with Anna Marie, 35, saying: ‘I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.’
A rep for John added to Page Six: ‘John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work.’
The pair first met on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard with their respective friends groups, and in a post on their wedding website, they explained: ‘After a group vacation to Martha’s Vineyard, John rode shotgun while Anna drove a carload of people home.
Olivia previously wished John well when he entered rehab (Picture: Getty Images)‘He did bits the whole ride and killed. They were not dating at the time, but Anna knew they would be soon after.’
John and Annamarie got married in July 2014, a year after they adopted a French bulldog named Petunia together.
