Olivia Munn may not be dating Aaron Rodgers anymore, but the actress is still talking about the Packers quarterback. 

Nearly a year after their split, Munn appeared on Sirius XM’s “Andy Cohen Live" and went into detail about the family problems that have reportedly plagued Rodgers for years.

“I met one brother, the one who was on The Bachelorette. I was friendly with Jordan. I met the parents only a couple of times. Before he and I started dating he had not spoken to one of the brothers and his parents for eight months,” she said.

She explained that she encouraged Rodgers to mend his relationship with his family. She helped him draft bullet points for a conversation with them and for a time, it seemed as if things were improving.

But it didn't last. "I just think it’s really important to try to mend things in a family. And I encourage that. But at the end of the day, I do believe that family and fame and success can be really complicated if their dreams are connected to your success," she said.

Munn went on to reveal the root of the beef between Rodgers and his family: They want to bask too much in his celebrity.

"I do believe that family and fame and success can be really complicated if their dreams are connected to your success,” she said. “They are all into sports and Aaron is one of the best, if not the best, quarterbacks to play the game. Their work has a direct connection to what he does."

“There’s a lot of complications. I don’t think either side of the road is clean, but I do think it’s not OK if you try to stand on someone’s shoulders then throw dirt in their face, that’s what I think.” 

When they were together, Munn was blamed for the rift between Rodgers and his family. But that claim was also countered by those who said it was Aaron himself who pulled away from the other members of the Rodgers clan. 

Rodgers, who Munn said she is no longer in contact with, has previously talked about the drama inherent to dating another celebrity. Not that it's stopped from doing so again. He's currently shacked up with Danica Patrick and they seem to be doing just fine.
