Woodley, 29, met the athlete during the pandemic and announced that he has been engaged “for a while”.
Rodgers, 37, plays for the Green Bay Packers and is widely regarded as one of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks.
During an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, Woodley said, “It’s not new news to us. So it’s kind of fun. Everyone is freaking out about it right now and we say, “Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.”
Woodley, also star of Snowden and The Mauretanian, described Rodgers as a “wonderful, incredible person” and joked that she did not expect to date an athlete.
She said, “But I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who made a living playing balls. As a little girl, I never thought I’d say, “Yeah, when I grow up, I’ll marry someone who throws balls! Yes!’ But he’s really that good at it. “
And American actress Woodley, who was widely recognized for her portrayal of a sexual assault survivor on the HBO drama series Big Little Lies, announced that she has never participated in an NFL game.
She said, “We met at this crazy, crazy time and all the stadiums he was playing in were closed so I have to go to a football game.
“I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports. It was never really on my radar. When we met, I also knew he was a footballer, but I didn’t know what kind of footballer he was. And I’m still learning all the time. “
