Shailene Woodley and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers don’t let their political beliefs impact their relationship, preferring to “agree to disagree.”
“They are not talking about their politics, and they never really have,” a source shared with People about the couple. “They disagreed on a lot of things. Early on, they decided to agree to disagree about things and not debate them.”
“She is not someone whose mind you can change, so Aaron hasn’t even tried,” the source added.
The “Big Little Lies” actress, 30, began dating the athlete, 38, in 2020. During Rodgers’ NFL Honors acceptance speech for league MVP in February 2021, he announced their engagement, catching fans of the couple off-guard.
Woodley confirmed their betrothal later that month, telling Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” that they had been “for a while.”
“For us, it’s not new news,” she added, “so it’s kind of funny. Everyone right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.’”
“I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who threw balls for a living,” she joked during the interview. “I never thought as a little girl, ‘Yeah when I grow up I’m going to marry someone who throws balls, yeah!’
