The actress is friends with actress Shailene Woodley from their time working together on “The Mauritanian.” Rodgers and Woodley began dating just last summer and quickly got engaged. Foster seemed to be supportive of Woodley’s relationship with Rodgers. She also told Jimmy Kimmel in an interview that she would shout out Rodgers if she won a Golden Globe. Well, a week later, Foster made good on the promise.
Then last season, Suh screamed at Rodgers after sacking him in an October game.
Suh joined Shannon Sharpe’s show “Club Shay Shay” for an interview this week and was asked about going up against the Packers quarterback. Suh’s Buccaneers faced Rodgers’ Packers twice last season and won both games.
“My job was to p-ss him off and win that game,” Suh told Sharpe. “I’m gonna always want to p-ss off Aaron and make him not want to be my friend on the football field.”
Suh says that he doesn’t discriminate and that his goal is to tick off all quarterbacks he faces.
“Without question, all quarterbacks. Even Tom, I want to p-ss Tom off during practice,” Suh told Sharpe. “That’s my job. That’s my focus.”
That’s definitely something Suh does well. He’s been irritating NFL quarterbacks since 2010. Sometimes he has even taken things much further than that, to an ugly level of physicality.
Actress Shailene Woodley confirmed this week that she and Aaron Rodgers are engaged, and she shared some information about the Green Bay Packers quarterback that may have surprised football fans. Naturally, someone ran straight to Wikipedia with that information.
Woodley joined “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for an interview that aired on Monday night. She said she doesn’t understand Rodgers’ football talent because she doesn’t know him as a football guy. Rather, Woodley says she knows Rodgers as “the nerd who wants to host ‘Jeopardy!'”
At some point after the interview aired, Rodgers’ Wikipedia page was changed to describe the NFL MVP as “an American football nerd who wants to host Jeopardy.”
Shailene Woodley sees her fiance Aaron Rodgers in a much different way than the rest of us.
To those who watch football, Rodgers is a savant on the field and one of the best quarterbacks of the last two decades. To Woodley, Rodgers is more of a nerd.
Woodley joined “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for an interview that aired on Monday night. She was asked about Rodgers’ football talent and said she didn’t “get it.”
Shailene Woodley to @jimmyfallon on @FallonTonight on her fiancé's football talent: "I don't get it. He's good. He's great. But, like, I don't understand. Because 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."
That’s probably great for Rodgers. He probably doesn’t want a partner who idolizes him because of who he is as a football player, but rather someone who likes him for who he is outside of football. It sounds like Woodley connects with him in that regard.
Aaron Rodgers got engaged to fiancee Shailene Woodley months after breaking up with Danica Patrick. Rodgers and Patrick dated for around two years before breaking up last summer. It would be natural to figure Patrick would be bothered by Rodgers’ engagement and be asking what she did wrong to not receive a proposal. But she reportedly is not feeling that way.
Hollywood Life published a story on Monday about how Rodgers’ ex-girlfriends are feeling about his engagement. They say that Olivia Munn, whom Rodgers dated prior to Patrick, doesn’t think twice about the Green Bay Packers quarterback anymore. She reportedly could not care less about him or his engagement.
Patrick dated Rodgers much more recently, so her mentality is likely to be different from Munn’s.
A source told Hollywood Life that Patrick “has moved on” from Rodgers.
Hollywood Life was told that Patrick was in love with Rodgers and wanted to start a family.
“She wanted to get married. That didn’t happen. She has grieved about it, but Danica is a tremendously tough woman, and dealing with Aaron is not a part of her future, so she has decided to avoid thinking about him. She is letting the past be the past,” the source said.
Again, these are quotes from a reported source, so they are not necessarily an exact reflection of how Patrick feels. But the explanations seem reasonable.
Homa is from the Los Angeles area and gave himself credit for joining the Lakers and Dodgers on winning a title. That’s what Rodgers was referencing with the hashtag.
So what’s the story with Homa and Rodgers? They are friends and played at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in the past. You may recall that Rodgers gave Homa a hilarious first tee introduction at the Charles Schwab last year (video here). Rodgers probably loved seeing his friend and fellow Cal Bear get the win on Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers indicated after the season that his future in Green Bay might be uncertain, but he has since put Packers fans at ease. Now, the next step for the star quarterback could be a new contract.
The Packers are projected to be more than $20 million over the salary cap, meaning they have to rework some contracts prior to March 17. Pro Bowl offensive tackle David Bakhtiari recently converted his roster bonus into a signing bonus, which created more than $8 million in cap space. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Rodgers is almost certain to do something similar.
Rodgers is set to make a base salary of $14.7 million next season with a $6.8 million roster bonus that’s due in March. His current contract runs through 2023, but the Packers could give him more guaranteed money and lower his salary cap hit in the short term. An arrangement like that would benefit both sides.
After the Packers lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game, Rodgers said his future with the Packers is “uncertain” just like that of several of his teammates. He later elaborated on those remarks after Green Bay fans were sent into a collective panic.
Foster was a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday and was asked about the matter. She said that she and Woodley talked a lot while working on “The Mauritanian” together.
“[Shailene] is fantastic,” Foster told Kimmel. “We spent a lot of time on The Mauritanian together in a little tent with a little air conditioning spitting at us, talking about our lives and, you know, recipes and people we hate and things like that.”
Reading between the lines, it sounds like Foster was a big fan of Rodgers as a partner for Woodley and supported their relationship. Foster being in his corner may have helped Rodgers’ relationship with Woodley. That could explain why he thanked her in the speech.
Aaron Rodgers’ new fiancee Shailene Woodley was born in California and spends a lot of time there, but it does not sound like the actress has any intention of trying to convince her boyfriend to leave Green Bay.
Rodgers shocked the NFL world when he revealed he is engaged while accepting his NFL MVP Award earlier this month. Some sources close to the Packers quarterback were just as stunned, while others saw it coming. One source told E! News that the two were introduced last summer and “knew early on that it was something special and different from what they had experienced in other relationships.”
Rodgers and Woodley then spent a lot of time together during the pandemic, and the circumstances allowed them to remain out of the public spotlight. One person familiar with the relationship said Woodley has been very supportive of Rodgers’ NFL career and “made herself at home in the Midwest.”
“They have spent the entire fall together and lived together throughout,” the insider told E! News. “She is very supportive of his career and embraced his life in Green Bay. Even though she has her own career and life, she wanted to be there with him.”
Aaron Rodgers shocked the NFL world on Saturday when he revealed during his MVP acceptance speech that he is engaged. In addition to thanking his unnamed fiancee for her support, the Green Bay Packers quarterback also mentioned a Jodie Foster. Many fans are wondering if those two are linked.
The fiancee Rodgers mentioned is actress Shailene Woodley, or so we think. There have been rumors that Rodgers and Woodley are dating since Rodgers split with Danica Patrick last summer. As US Weekly notes, the Jodie Foster whom Rodgers shouted out was likely the famous actress, who is costars with Woodley in the upcoming film “The Mauritanian.” Foster is also a well-known Packers fan.
Naturally, there is now speculation that Foster may have introduced Rodgers and Woodley to one another. It’s also possible that Rodgers met Foster through Woodley.
