Olivia Munn wants everyone to know she definitely isn't dating Chris Pratt, despite tabloid rumors, so she texted his ex-wife, Anna Faris, to prove it! After Entertainment Tonight reported that Olivia and Chris were spotted on a “romantic” dinner date together in West Hollywood last week, the actress decided to shut down the rumors in the best way imaginable. The report was very descriptive too, which led many to believe that Olivia and Chris were on their way to being Hollywood's next power couple.

According to ET‘s sources, the Jurassic World star was seen with his arm around Olivia and that the two did not seem concerned with trying to hide their PDA. Well, apparently there is zero truth to any of it, since Olivia quickly posted a conversation she had with Anna onto her Instagram.

Here's a screenshot of their conversation:

Kudos to Olivia for texting Anna right away since the rumors could have led to some unnecessary drama. Especially since the two women clearly know each other pretty well. But does anyone find it odd that Anna said she would have been thrilled if Olivia was her new sister-in-law? It's nice she's so supportive, but we're not so sure “sister-in-law” is the right term. Perhaps baby-step-mommy would be more appropriate? We'll work on it. Also, Olivia should definitely check her 58 other text messages.

One other thing we noticed is that the text was sent on January 4, two weeks before the ET report was published. After doing some fact-checking, it turns out OK! Magazine was the first to report that Chris and Olivia were secretly dating after realizing they had a “deep connection.”

Other than the text, Olivia also posted a number of statements to clear things up.

“1. Not every woman is scorned and upset after a breakup,” she wrote in a now-expired Instagram story. “2. Not every woman is ‘furious’ at another woman for dating her ex. 3. So even if I was dating @prattprattpratt, some tabloids got me and @annafaris all wrong. 4. Women respect and love each other a lot more than some people like to think.”

Preach, girl! She then went on to poke fun at the possibility of sharing a couple nickname with Chris. “5. Chris and I would have a horrible celebrity name. Crolivia. Prunn. Chrisivia. Olipratt,” she wrote.

We gotta say Olivia definitely knows how to deal her personal life. Also, she's funny AF. If only all celebrities would handle dating rumors like she does. Meanwhile, we gotta admit that we were kind of hoping the rumors were true since Olivia and Chris are both hilarious and have some pretty great chemistry. If don't believe us, check out an interview they did on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

During their appearance, Chris recalled meeting Olivia's ex, Aaron Rodgers, for the first time during a double date. He said he tried really hard to impress the NFL quarterback, so he planned a bunch of manly things for them to do. In fact, the Parks and Recreation actor tried so hard that his BBQ ended catching on fire.

To be honest, we didn't care about his story as much as we liked watching Olivia and Chris joke around with one another. Just being honest! Watch the interview below:
