Did Aaron Rodgers allude to his reported breakup with Shailene Woodley a few days before it was reported? Writing in a February 11 Instagram post, he said “Extremely grateful for my life. 17 years worth of incredible memories and lifelong friendships forged because of this game.” Rodgers continued, “I’m thankful for all the highs and lows this year and the growth opportunities on and off the field. Thank you for all the love and support.” Hmm… off the field? In a year that saw his engagement to Woodley go public and then come to an alleged end (as reported on February 16 by People), the quarterback surely must have been hinting at his relationship with the “Big Little Lies” star.
Some eagle-eyed fans raised their eyebrows high in October 2021 when they spotted Woodley surfing in Malibu sans engagement ring, according to E! News, with Woodley herself revealing in July 2021 on “TODAY” that she and Rodgers were in no hurry to tie the knot. “Honestly, that’s not even a conversation we’ve had with the world today,” Woodley shared at the time. “We haven’t even talked about it.” When asked what she found exciting about the prospect of her nuptials, Woodley bluntly replied, “I’m not sure what will be the most exciting component of that.” Ah, well — the book sadly closes on yet another Hollywood romance.
