Actress Olivia Munn has taken her budding romance with American football star Aaron Rodgers public after the couple attended the New York premiere of her new movie Deliver Us From Evil.

The Newsroom beauty began dating Rodgers in May (14), weeks after her split from Robocop actor Joel Kinnaman, and they decided to make their relationship official by stepping out together at their first big event.

The new couple was photographed arriving hand-in-hand, before Munn posed solo for the cameras on the red carpet.

Explaining why she ditched her new man on the red carpet, Munn told, "That seems a little strange to walk (together). The carpet's work, you know? I don't go on the field with him.

"The afterparty we'll hang out and stuff, but the red carpet, it's work. It's interesting when you have some people walk the carpet. Some people do that, but for me... this is work."

Munn and Rodgers reportedly hit it off in April (14), when they were paired up to present a prize at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.
