Actress Shailene Woodley joined The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday where she confirmed the rumors that she and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are engaged. Though knowledge of their relationship just became public a few weeks ago, Woodley said they’ve actually been engaged for a while, and nobody is more surprised than she is.
“He’s, first of all, just a wonderful, incredible human being, but I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who throws balls for a living,” Woodley said. “Like, I never thought as a little girl, I was like, ‘Yeah, when I grow up I’m gonna marry someone who—who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it.”
While Woodley knows enough to know that Rodgers is a very good QB, her knowledge of football, admittedly, is lacking. But she’s willing to learn.
“I have yet to go to a football game. Before I met him I’d never seen one football game before. I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports. It was never really on my radar,” Woodley said. “When we met, I knew he was a football guy, but I didn’t know what kind of a football guy he was, and I’m still constantly learning.”
“I don’t know him as a football guy, I know him as the nerd who wants to host Jeopardy!, ya know? That’s the dude I know,” Woodley said. “He just happens to also be very good at sports.”
