How do you describe the connection between adorned quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tree sprite Shailene Woodley? As they are saying—and so they all say this—It’s Difficult isn’t just a movie within the Nancy Meyers canon. In a Tuesday article on this web site about Rodgers posting through their breakup, I surmised that this couple, although each bizarre, weren’t bizarre in ways in which have been finally suitable. However there’s an opportunity that was lifeless fallacious, and her distinctive qualities enhances his completely. Perhaps, their relationship is just past the neat little movie star relationship narratives.
Exhibiting up on crimson carpets collectively? Rings on fingers? Rings off fingers? All the straightforward beats with which the tales of movie star romance are usually instructed? They defy them! They’ve been noticed collectively for the reason that breakup rumors circulated due to boundless numbers of nameless sources—at a grocery store no much less—and in addition neither have confirmed a breakup nor a de-engagement within the meantime. (Vainness Truthful has reached out to her group for remark.)
The credit score for maintaining tabs on them after the breakup claims settled goes to Who? Weekly, Bobby Finger and Lindsey Weber’s top-tier podcast about sub-A-list celebrities, and one in all their listeners Katie, whose Twitter deal with is @k80claire. To begin from the start: On Tuesday, after the information that Rodgers had thanked Woodley on Instagram started to decelerate, the Who? Weekly account quote-tweeted a video of the quarterback on the The Pat McAfee Show. The clip options an actual Woodley-esque snort within the background. You don’t should pay attention that rigorously to listen to it. He makes a dry comment about how the tv is on.

At one other level in McAfee’s interview, Rodgers says these good issues about Woodley: “When your private home life is steady and you’ve got an incredible companion to do life with, it simply makes the work life a bonus. And it adjustments your perspective since you’re in a position to not have a look at work as, like, a refuge.” He added that he’s instructed her that, “I’ve been with you for 2 seasons, received two MVPs—that’s not a coincidence, both.”
These quotes might very nicely be from a person wistfully remembering the great instances, like his little go at being a Monday-morning quarterback. However the less complicated rationalization is that it is a man speaking in current tense about his companion, the one which he’s nonetheless in a relationship with. (And if that was not sufficient of a clue that they’re nonetheless collectively in some capability, then this would be.)
Then lastly, Wholigan @k80claire replied on this thread on Tuesday with a photo of them at Erewhon in Los Angeles. “I JUST SAW THEM AT EREWHON 5 MINS AGO TOGETHER!!!!!” Katie wrote. Their faces have been lined, so a optimistic ID is barely tough (and Rodgers has been famously misidentified before), however this individual additionally provided a separate photograph of Rodgers the place his face was extra recognizable so readers might evaluate physique affectation. Additionally, she claimed she’s not a stalker; she simply lives in L.A.
After the photograph picked up circulation on Friday, one more nameless supply instructed Entertainment Weekly that they’re exploring getting again collectively. “Shailene and Aaron broke up after the 2 spent loads of time aside and could not make it work,” this individual mentioned. “Aaron had instructed Shailene he’ll put extra effort into the connection and making her a precedence. The 2 have been spending extra time collectively just lately and can see what the longer term holds.”
