Jodie Foster Addresses Rumors She Introduced Shailene Woodley & Aaron Rodgers

Jodie Foster is sharing her thoughts on getting a shout out from Aaron Rodgers in his NFL MVP acceptance speech.

In case you missed it, the Green Bay Packers quarterback announced that he was engaged while accepting the MVP award for the 2020 season. A source then confirmed that the person he was engaged to was Shailene Woodley.

He also thanked Jodie Foster during his speech, leading fans to theorize pair could have been introduced to each other by the actress, who stars alongside Shailene in The Mauritanian.

Jodie discussed Aaron‘s mention in a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

She started off by confirming that she’s a “big Packers fan” and joked, “You see, he said ‘my team,’ even though he said ‘off the field.’ That makes me a Green Bay Packer. People keep saying to me, ‘No, Jodie, that does not mean you’re part of the team.’ But it does mean I’m part of the team.”

When Jimmy asked if she knew Aaron personally, she responded with an energetic, “No!”

“You had no idea he was going to say this?” Jimmy asked. Jodie answered, “He just knows I’m his biggest fan.”

“He mentions his fiancĂ©e, who is Shailene Woodley, who is your co-star in this particular movie,” Jimmy continued. “And that’s just a total coincidence?”

Jodie kept her response ambiguous and replied, “I don’t know if that’s a coincidence, but yes, she is, and she’s fantastic. So we spent a lot of time on The Mauritanian together in a little tent with a little air-conditioning spitting at us, talking about our lives and recipes and people we hate and things like that.”

Jodie also told Jimmy that she’d be willing to return the favor by thanking the Packers in her Golden Globes acceptance speech and added, “I may have to name the whole team. Davante Adams has to be in there somewhere.”

Jodie recently reunited with a former co-star to reflect on one of her iconic roles. Click here to see who it was!
