Shailene Woodley says she and Aaron Rodgers jumped head over heels in a relationship.
Woodley, who confirmed her engagement to the NFL star in February, said the couple “immediately” moved together when they began dating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Starting a relationship where you immediately move with someone – because it’s a pandemic and you can’t just get on a plane and go back and forth on the weekends – very quickly taught us about each other,”
Woodley, 29, said the unconventional dating approach had helped the couple remove “some of the sticky bits earlier.” The actress believes that they “are meant to be together.”
“I have the prospect of meeting Aaron in any context and any space in time,” she added.

Woodley said she was first quarantined alone with her dogs and “had not seen anyone for three months.” But that changed months later when she moved to Rodgers in Montreal, where she was filming an upcoming project. While Woodley was working, Rodgers was busy preparing for his own role: “Danger!” guest host (broadcast in April).
“I don’t know him as a footballer. I know him as a fool who wants to host” Danger! “This is the guy I know,” Woodley said of the Green Bay Packers quarterback in February. “I never thought I’d be engaged to someone throwing balls for a living.”

Rodgers announced that he was engaged in February while accepting the NFL MVP award for 2020. Although he gave a special nod to his fiancée, he did not identify her.
Woodley, 37, confirmed her engagement to Rodgers a few weeks later during the Jimmy Fallon Show tonight.
“Yes, we’re engaged,” Woodley told Fallon on Feb. 22. “But for us, this isn’t new news, you know? So it’s pretty funny. Everyone’s going crazy right now and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.’ “
