Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers jumped forward in their relationship. They started dating last summer during the pandemic and in February of this year announced their engagement. The surprising couple is still going strong and Woodley believes they were destined to fall in love.
“By going into a relationship where you move in with someone right away — because it’s a pandemic and you can’t just get on a plane and go back and forth over the weekend — we learned a lot about each other very quickly,” Woodley says. . told Form. “We jumped forward and got some of the sticky bits out of the way early.”
Before dating Rodgers, Divergent actor spent quarantine in solitude. “I was alone with my dog and didn’t see anyone for three months,” she said. “It forced me to be still and quiet.”
Shailene Woodley also said about her relationship with Aaron Rodgers: “I have the perspective that I would have met Aaron in any context, any space in time, because I think we are destined to be together.”
She first confirmed the news of their engagement during a performance On The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon while promoting her movie The Mauritanian. Woodley admitted she never thought she would marry a professional athlete or, as she hilariously put it, “one who throws balls.”
“So it’s pretty funny. Everyone is crazy about it now, and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while,’ Woodley explained. “First, he’s just an amazing, incredible human being. But I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who threw balls for a living. As I never imagined as a little girl… ‘Yes, when I grow up, I’m going to marry someone who throws balls! Yes!’ But he’s really that good at it.”
