The actor confirmed the news on tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (via E! News): “It’s kind of funny. Everyone’s freaking out about it right now and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we were engaged for a while,” she said.
In the interview, Woodley called Rodgers “a wonderful, incredible person” and said that she “never thought I’d be engaged to someone who threw balls for a living”: “As a little girl, I never thought, ‘Yes, when I’ll grow up, I’ll marry someone who throws balls! Yes! ‘But he’s really that good at it. “
“When I first met him, my dog was happy to pull me aside and say, ‘If you don’t go out with this guy, I’ll deny you as my mother because the three feet I run with you when you throw one Ball is nothing compared to the marathon I can run with him. ‘”
Woodley also stated that the meeting during the pandemic meant she still didn’t see Rodgers play soccer in person: “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. “
Well, there’s always the next season. Congratulations to the happy couple!
