It's good to be Aaron Rodgers. He is the former Super Bowl-winning, MVP quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. He got the richest contract in NFL history last year. He does those funny discount double-check ads. He has it all.

And now Rodgers is dating a Hollywood star. Noted football publication Us Weekly reported that Rodgers is dating Olivia Munn, the actress best known for her work on the HBO show "The Newsroom." She went from dating "RoboCop" star Joel Kinnaman to one of the biggest stars in professional sports, so she's doing pretty well for herself these days too.

Us Weekly said the two met at the Annual Academy of Country Music Awards this offseason. They presented an award together. The couple was apparently seen by Us Weekly's spies in Malibu together at the upscale sushi restaurant Nobu last weekend (I really feel like I need to put an exclamation point after every sentence if I'm writing in the Us Weekly style!), but it's curious what will happen when reality sets in for Munn that her boyfriend lives in Green Bay, Wis. for half of the year. And it's the cold half. Kroll's West Restaurant on Ridge Road just down from the Shopko and Fleet Farm stores isn't exactly high-end sushi on the beach in California. Doubt you'll see a Kardashian there.

But hey, good for the new couple. It's rare to see Rodgers involved in any tabloid rumors about his life off the field. He even had to deny rumors that he was gay last year, probably because it's so rare to hear about his dating life.

By dating a well-known Hollywood actress, Rodgers no longer will have the luxury of his private life being kept completely private.
