Shailene Woodley covers THR, and says she and Aaron Rodgers were engaged a while before announcing it. “When we announced that we were engaged, we wanted to do that only because we didn’t want someone else to do it before we did,” Woodley says. “And we didn’t do it for months and months after we had become engaged, but the reaction to it was really a lot, and so we were like, ‘Let’s just politely decline [to talk about the relationship] for a little while and live in our little bubble.'” I’m not sure why she’d want to reintroduce speculation about their relationship timeline when it had finally died down, but here we are again.
