Actress Shailene Woodley confirmed her engagement to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that aired Monday.
Woodley, who was nominated for an Emmy Award for her role on the HBO drama “Big Little Lies,” said she and Rodgers got engaged “a while ago.”
Rodgers, 37, mentioned his engagement and thanked his fiancee as he accepted his third career MVP award on February 6, but did not say his name.
Woodley, 29, told Fallon that he had not yet attended one of Rodgers’ games due to the pandemic, and acknowledged that as he grew up, sports were never really on his “radar.”
“When we first met, I also knew he was a soccer player, but I didn’t know what kind of soccer player he was,” Woodley explained. “And I keep learning constantly.”
Commenting on Rodgers’ soccer talent, he continued: “I don’t get it. It’s good. It’s great. But, I don’t get it. Because I don’t know him as a soccer player. I know him as the nerd who wants to introduce ‘Jeopardy!’ That’s the guy I know. “
Rodgers had revealed last month that he had been asked to guest host an episode of his favorite game show, one in which he appeared on a celebrity issue in 2015.
