SJ - June 7, 2021
Shailene Woodley appears on the cover of Shape's July/August edition. The actress talks about the environment and her relationship with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (not pictured below, but does share a lot of features with that horse).
One interesting tidbit from the interview, and a clear sign that he should call off the engagement immediately, is her describing them as being "meant to be together." That never ends well in the movies, not the ones I watch anyway.

Only, some do — which brings us to her engagement to star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "Starting a relationship where you immediately move in with someone — because it's a pandemic and you can't just get on a plane and go back and forth on weekends — taught us a lot about each other very quickly," she says. "We jumped in headfirst and got some of the sticky bits out of the way early." It's not something Shailene foresaw in those first dark days of lockdown. "I was by myself with my dog and didn't see anyone for three months," she says. "It forced me to be still and quiet." The captive introspection was "really uncomfortable" but worthwhile.
Seven months later, she and Rodgers would be hunkered down together in Montreal, she on the set of her next film, he binge-watching Jeopardy to prepare for a two-week stint as host. It helped that they could jell without the speed of their regularly scheduled lives, Shailene says, "but I have the perspective that I would have met Aaron in any context, any space in time, because I feel we were meant to be together."
I still think that line is a big sign, but who am I to judge? They love each other even if one of them may or may not resemble a horse and that should be good enough for all of us.
Also, I think she has something to do with Rodgers' current stance on the Packers franchise and that is a beautiful thing to watch unfold.
Here's a gallery for those of you interested. I personally can't figure out why he broke up with Olivia Munn.
