Actress Shailene Woodley went on The Jimmy Fallon Show Monday night to tell the world that yes, she’s engaged to Aaron Rodgers and that they got engaged “a while ago.” This comes after Rodgers blurted out during his MVP award speech on February 6 that he got engaged, yet he didn’t name Woodley during the speech.
As someone who has tracked Aaron Rodgers on and off the field for over a decade, it shouldn’t come as a shock that he’s in yet another weird relationship with weirdness all around it. The relationship comes off weird. The engagement is super weird. And the announcement of his engagement during the February 6 speech was incredibly weird for a 37-year-old who is super secretive about his life.
“Yes, we are engaged,” Woodley told Fallon. “We are engaged. But for us, it’s not new news, you know, so it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.’”
She then went on to add that she’s never been to one of Rodgers’ games, using the pandemic as an excuse, even though the Packers played two home playoff games in front of fans and played in several cities that allowed fans throughout the year.
It gets even better — Woodley says she’d never seen a football game before meeting Rodgers.
“He’s first off just a wonderful, incredible human being, but I never thought I’d be engaged to somebody who threw balls for a living,” Woodley said. “Like, I never thought as a little girl, I was like, ‘Yeah, when I grow up, I’m going to marry someone who throws balls, yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it.”
I’ll go ahead and say it. Something is off here. Way off. Congratulations to the seemingly happy couple — I’ve yet to see a photo of the two of them together — but I won’t be buying an engagement gift until I see some real planning that a wedding is going to happen.
I get it, both of them are quirky in their own ways. Shailene has a weird little Instagram page going on with random things thrown together. Aaron has his fascination with Jeopardy! and doing interviews where he speaks real slow, soft and intellectually with Pat McAfee and then drops random f-bombs here and there that aren’t forced at all. Just kidding, the random profanity seems incredibly forced.
What’s Olivia Munn, one of Rodgers’ exes, think of the news? “Olivia’s thoughts on Aaron Rodgers as an ex and anything more has no existence in Olivia’s mind,” a source told Hollywood Life. “[Olivia] doesn’t care one bit.”
With all that said…
