Olivia Munn is ambitious

Olivia Munn doesn't want to "just become somebody's wife."

The 'X-Men: Apocalypse' star, who has been dating the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for more than a year, is still very ambitious and has no desire to become a stay at home mother in the future.

The 35-year-old actress said: "The best advice my mother ever gave me was 'Never marry a guy and just become somebody's wife.' She went to college, and even though she got her degrees, she got married early and never really had the opportunity to find her identity. [She's a great mom], but she always wanted to do other things, and was never able to. So growing up, my mom always told my sisters and me that you have to be your own person and make a name for yourself. Never settle for being somebody else's something."

The 'Newsroom' star, who previously dated Joel Kinnaman and Chris Pine, thinks Aaron is "different than every other man."

Speaking to the August issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, she explained: "Everything a good person can be, he is. He's in such great shape, and especially lately, he's been eating so well and working out. Having somebody in your life like that is so motivating."

The couple recently adopted a puppy, Chance, and the brunette beauty believes it has changed her life.

She said: "Chance made us a family...he and Aaron have changed my life in every way. My world has become so much brighter, sweeter and lovelier. I feel grounded with them in my life."
