Shailene Woodley Opens Up About Her Rugby Player Boyfriend After Couple Make Red Carpet Debut

Shailene Woodley made her red carpet debut with beau Ben Volavola on Wednesday and Jimmy Kimmel made sure to quiz the actress on the relationship as she appeared on his show that night.

Woodley, 26, looked as stunning as ever as she posed for photographers at the Los Angeles “Adrift” premiere with her rugby star other half, who plays for French Top 14 team Bordeaux Begles.

However, despite the sport obviously being a huge part of Volavola’s life, Woodley confessed she didn’t know much about it when she was questioned by Kimmel, 50.

Woodley revealed, “I knew nothing about rugby [before meeting him]. And then I went to a rugby game while we were shooting [Adrift] in Fiji.”

“It’s quite barbaric,” she added. “He literally throws himself at another grown man who’s running full-speed towards him. And he loves it. It’s confusing, I don’t get it.”

“It’s fun [to] watch,” Woodley continued.

The actress’ appearance also saw her open up about the whole crew getting sick while filming “Adrift” in Fiji, due to shooting on water for 12 hours a day.

Woodley explained, “The first day we got out to sea we watched the sunrise, it was beautiful. Sam Claflin [her co-star] and I were taking photos, and celebrating life.”

“Two hours into it everybody, except… our director and cinematographer conveniently, we were gone,” she added.
