Aaron Rodgers‘ future in Green Bay has been much discussed this offseason, but on Monday night one aspect of his personal future was revealed: He’ll be getting married to actress Shailene Woodley.

Woodley told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that the two are engaged. Woodley added that football is not what she loves about Rodgers.

“I still have never been to a football game,” Woodley said. “Before I met him I’d never seen one football game before. When we met I knew he was a football guy but I didn’t know what kind of football guy he was. I don’t know him as a football guy. I know him as the nerd who wants to host Jeopardy!. That’s the dude I know. He just happens to also be very good at sports.”

Woodley said friends have filled her in on how good Rodgers is.

“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. He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls, high balls, low balls.”

  1. Doesn’t it seem like Aaron Rodgers is difficult to get along with in his personal life? At least that’s what I get out of what I read.

  2. Yeah, when I grow up, I’m going to marry someone who throws balls, yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it. He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls, high balls, low balls.”

    Two quick thoughts: 1) there’s not much going on between this young lady’s ears, and; 2) she’s obviously never watched him play in a conference championship game.

  3. I would honestly rather read this than about why Deshaun Watson wants to leave Houston and where he is going.

  4. “He can throw long tantrums, he can throw short tantrums. Loud tantrums, quiet tantrums.”

  5. Imagine Rodgers giving an interview and saying “I’ve never even seen a movie […] I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who pretends to be other people for a living. […] When I was a boy I never thought ‘Yeah when I grow up I’m gonna marry someone who pretends to be other people!” But, she’s really good at it. She can be this lady, that one, the other guy, all of em.”
    Like, that would make national headlines for how ignorant and insensitive he is about his fiance.

  6. “I didn’t know who he was. But then I learned he’s worth over $100 million cause he can throw a football well. I decided to give him (and football) a chance.” – that’s how I envision her internal monologue.

  7. “But he’s really just so good at it. He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls, high balls, low balls.” Sounds like a watered down version of an AC/DC song.

  8. I don’t know who that is, but she doesn’t sound very bright or interesting. Although, Rodgers definitely has a type.

  9. You never thought you would marry a guy that throws balls for a living, and he never thought he would marry someone that pretends to be other people for a living… What a world!

  10. Instead of 2+ week old news can you please consider some sort of draft preview, calendar of pro-days, or another tired article about 17 teams interested in Kaepernick?

  11. Wow…. that was fast…. and to a Girl that knows nothing about your work or what you do for a living?? and never been to a game?? that sounds like a real deep relationship to me… man that is just crazy…better sign a prenuptial agreement for sure.

  12. “I swear I had no idea who he was when I met him, your honor. So half.” Shailene Woodley-Rodgers, March 2022.

  13. If they want to spend the rest of their lives together I certainly wish them the best. Hopefully she ACTUALLY watch him play in person next season if we can get the COVID situation under control. BTW, am I the only one who is actually looking forward to seeing Aaron host Jeopardy?

  14. If that guy can’t even get along with his parents or even his brother, how do you think it will go when you marry him? Oh well, CHA-CHING CHA-CHING when you hang up that ring.

  15. Has she spoken to Olivia Munn and/or Danica Patrick? This guy appears to tire of women quickly, so I give this two years.

  16. Poor ariani1985. Lost his dream guy. Hilarious

    Too funny. Don’t forget about cheesey though. Heard he’s busted up too.

  17. As a Packers season ticket holder, shareholder, and lifetime fan, I am completely embarrassed by the entirety of his off-the-field life. Yes, he was the M.V.P. this year (an individual award), but he is also 1-4 in conference championships (the losses of which ruled out the chances of winning four Super Bowl M.V.P.’s). And he wants a new contract. And now his “engagement” due to to his latest celebrity infatuation will ultimately result in his inevitable wounded feelings when something is said/written about him/them… and his worst statistical/performance ever in the upcoming season. And yet, everyone is perplexed about why they drafted Jordan Love.

  18. Rodgers seems to trigger the emasculated male like no other player in the NFL.

  19. He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls, high balls, low balls.

    Now that’s funny. Why do I feel like this is how most everyone in hollywood thinks about football…

  20. If that guy can’t even get along with his parents or even his brother, how do you think it will go when you marry him?

    I find it so weird and creepy when Viking fans talk about our qb’s relationships. Is Rodgers the only qb you stalk or are there others?

  21. I just clicked to ready the pithy comments left by Viking fans. I know their intention is to be funny but if the Viking fans want a real laugh consider this, the Vikings blew thru 2 first round draft picks before the Packers nabbed Rodgers at 24th overall. To think the Vikings could have solved their QB woes back in 2005 gets me to smile everytime I think of it.

  22. To me, her tone seems condescending, which I find ironic considering she is someone who effectively plays dress-up and pretend for a living. He’s an entertainer, she’s an entertainer. They’re both insufferable.

  23. Oh boy… I wonder what she’s going to say about the city of Green Bay. Does she even know it exists? I seriously want to know her thoughts on this one— I’m not just teeing this up for Viking fans.

  24. People should chill out. I’m an accountant, and I don’t expect my wife to have any interest in it. To Woodley, football is as boring as accounting is to most people, and that’s fine. I thought what she said was funny.

    Couples are allowed to have different interests. Rodgers and Woodley must have a lot of things in common too if they’re going to get married. If I’m Rodgers, I would rather be with someone I connect with in a way that goes beyond football that someone who only sees me as a famous football player.

    Besides, he’s close to retirement from the NFL and will just be watching football on Sundays with his buddies soon (something else I do that my wife has no interest in).

  25. As a Packers season ticket holder, shareholder, and lifetime fan, I am completely embarrassed by the entirety of his off-the-field life
    ——
    Why, because he’s had 3 different girlfriends? For shame!! Your bar is very low for a lifelong Packer fan. Most of us are very proud of the incredible work he does with charities, but each to his own. If your that worried about off-field behavior, you must’ve been mortified by Favre stumbling around GB drunk and pilled up for half a decade.

    Ridiculous.

  26. Packer fans have a strong history of disapproval with their players who have social lives outside of Lambeau, questioning their dedication to the packer gods.

  27. Ok,….full-disclosure, I’m a Packers fan/ season ticket holder. I love/respect what Rodgers has done for our team, and the community of Green Bay and State of Wisconsin. I have my criticisms too, he’s far from perfect. But I’m not perfect and neither is anyone on this string. All the nastiness and hate and insults in this comment string from people blows my mind. There is such an air of superiority. She says he “throws a ball” BFD, how many of us know or love someone who is not a fan? Who cares? That doesn’t mean she’s dumb, and it’s none of my concern anyway. Regarding Rodgers personal life, yes, it’s been a bit messy…..again, who cares? It’s none of my business, I pay to watch him play football. Y’all could use a dose of kindness and love and not all this ugly snark. I wonder if other celebrities ever wish they could be snarky and insult the personal lives of strangers.

  28. Sheesh guys, lighten up on this woman. She was being interviewed on a talk show, not writing a senior thesis. It is not possible to estimate this woman’s intelligence based on these quotes or to actually know anything about who she is as a person.

  29. wow I know aaron can come off as aloof and arrogant etc. but i dint get the pure hatred.must be jealousy. as far as i know he’s a respectful person that does a lot for charities. meanwhile you have cheering for and wearing the jerseys of guts that beat on pregnant women, inncent children and defenseless animals.

    Yes, perplexed. Why do you draft a QB when you are so close to getting over the hump of the NFC Conference Championship game and getting to the SB and have other positions that need upgraded?? How do you draft a QB in the 1st round and don’t even have him dress for games to at least be a backup? Imagine if your franchise QB were to go down. Would you want a QB you drafted in the 1st round to come in and save the game/season, or your other backup, Tim Boyle? I hope you find out.

  31. I’ll never understand the big deal about marriage. Personally, it sounds like a boring and stressful life. If a divorce were to ever happen, it would destroy your livelihood financially. Not to mention, you have a lot more freedom being single.

  32. Fascinating that people think someone with a personal net worth of around $12 million and can perform their profession at a high level indefinitely is marrying a football player for his money, when his career could be over with one crippling injury.

  33. When the hell did this happen? Shows how informed I am on NFL players dating lives. I know her because my now ex wife made me watch her Secret Life show which is one of the worst shows I’ve ever had the misfortune of watching.

  34. Good for them. It’s probably refreshing for him to have someone interested in him without the shadow of football. She knows him as a nerdy guy who wants to be the host of Jeopardy. Apart from him mentioning wanting to GUEST HOST in a few interviews, has anyone else heard he wants to BE the new host? Might just be a glimpse that they know each other better than the general public and media know them.

    She said sports were not on her radar growing up. So what? Lots of people don’t watch or like sports. Rodgers has said when he’s done with football he’s done with it. Wouldn’t it make sense for him then to find someone who sees and knows him with no regard for football???

  35. Fast forward to a random Sunday evening next October: “Hi honey, how was your day today? Did you throw some fast balls?”

  36. She uh, seems to have a sense of superiority in her occupation over her fiance, and is uh v condescending. Playing pretend > throwing balls for a living I suppose?

    __________

    Something tells me you’ll have no problem staying single.

  38. Rodgers doesn’t seem as moody as he used to be and he handled the Jordan Love situation perfectly. Could be that she has been good for him.

  39. I’m never a big fan when PFT takes a detour into TMZ territory, but I digress.

    Shailene has spent the better part of last season in Green Bay developing a relationship with Aaron.
    He has been quite happy and in tune with the direction of his personal life and in turn it’s seemed to have a dramatic impact in his on-field performance.
    Whether there’s a real correlation between the two is anyone’s guess.
    Packer fans have been thrilled with the results, the rest of the division, not so much.

    I honestly wouldn’t care if Rodgers wanted to marry a toaster as long as his leadership and passing skills remain at 2020 levels.
    I say, congrats to the happy couple…..looking forward to September. 😉

  40. If you are dating someone and they say they are an American football player wouldn’t you Google them just out of curiosity? I never heard of Shailene Woodley before and I have no relationship with her at all but the first thing I did is see what movies she was in.

    Maybe that is just the unspoken rule of rich public celebrities…you don’t Google your date.

  41. One thing is for sure: if/when they break up (and most marriages do), it won’t be Aaron’s fault. Because it’s NEVER Aaron’s fault.

  42. Geez, you all need to lighten up. She went on Jimmy Fallon, which is essentially a comedy show. She was going for laughs, and she got them. This wasn’t 60 Minutes.

  43. Christopher Allan says:
    “How do you draft a QB in the 1st round and don’t even have him dress for games to at least be a backup? Imagine if your franchise QB were to go down. Would you want a QB you drafted in the 1st round to come in and save the game/season”

    Are you referencing when the Packers drafted Rodgers while they still had Favre and Rodgers threw a total of 59 passes in his first three years?

  44. And I continue to be jealous of the greatness that is Aaron Rodgers.

    Congrats to the young couple.

  45. Hey, he started dating her and turned in his best season . . . maybe ever. Except for 2011. GB may have lost the conference round, but AR threw 3 TDs against the Super Bowl winning defense. Last year’s MVP Mahomes didn’t score against them and threw 2 picks. I’d say Woodley has been a positive in his life. All you folks bashing Rodgers, I challenge you to watch a few episodes of him on Pat McAfee’s show this last season. You won’t be able to help yourselves. You’ll like the guy. And bashing her intelligence? Right back atcha. You don’t get humor . . . and she’s funny.

    INCLUDING 2011

    That team was absolutely loaded. Cobb couldn’t even get on teh field.

    This offense doesn’t compare. Not even close.

  47. Dear Morons commenting on this making fun of her,

    She is clearly joking around. Watch the interview.

  48. I doubt she cares about sports at all. I’ve been in relationships like that. It’s weird, but it never affected the relationship because I can talk about other things than sports. I hope it works out.

  49. Fear is a Liar, I have no problem being single because it’s so much fun. Marriage is costly. It’s so expensive to put teenagers through college, owning multiple vehicles, keeping the lady happy, taking vacations, and insuring everyone in your household.

    I used to feel this way. Being 29 now and wanting to settle down. Marriage is beautiful, especially a loving marriage. I’m not just going to throw a ring on the finger either but you may have more freedom being single, but a family enriches your life if you’re smart and invest in being a family man. Shout out to all the family men out there.

    How old are you? Because if you’re young then I understand the viewpoint.

  52. 6burgh, being a family man is not going to make most men happy. It should go without saying that it gets old fast. I am two years younger than you, and I would never have enough time to lift weights, watch sports, go to bars, attend concerts, and just relax on the weekends if I was married. Minus the salary, I live the life of a professional athlete. The training is intense. Some of us would never reach our goals in life if we were weren’t alone.

    Well, if you aren’t happy with your life single then you shouldn’t be getting married either hoping it brings happiness. Perhaps that’s why divorce is up higher, people getting together thinking that’s what will bring them happiness.

    “being a family man is not going to make most men happy. It should go without saying that it gets old fast.”

    +++++

    Honest question, what makes you an expert on what would make most men happy?

    Speak for yourself, and your viewpoint is noted. How can you say it gets old fast when you haven’t even tried it?
