Jodie Foster Says She Doesn’t Know Aaron Rodgers After He Thanked Her In His Engagement Speech

Jodie Foster isn’t giving credence to the fan theory that she is responsiblefor setting up Aaron Rodgers and his fiancée, Shailene Woodley. The 58-year-old actress and director appeared on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” where the host asked her about Rodgers’ recent shout out during his acceptance speech for the 2020 AP Most Valuable Player.

Kimmel played the clip in which Rodgers named Foster as a part of his team off the field.

“You see he said, ‘my team,’ even though he said, ‘off the field,’ that makes me a Green Bay Packer,” Foster, a longtime Packers fan, joked. “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.”

Foster, who is co-starring in “The Mauritanian” with Rodgers’ new fiancée Woodley, insisted she didn’t know the quarterback.

“He just knows I’m his biggest fan,” she said, when Kimmel asked if she knew he was going to thank her.

“He mentions his fiancée who is Shailene Woodley who is your co-star in this particular movie and that’s just a total coincidence?” Kimmel pressed.

“I don’t know if it’s a coincidence. But yes, she is and she’s fantastic,” Foster said of Woodley. “So we spent a lot of time on ‘The Mauritanian’ together in a little tent with air conditioning spitting at us talking about our lives and recipes and people we hate, things like that. And the Green Bay Packers somehow came up!”

During the same event where he thanked Foster earlier this month, Rodgers also revealed he was engaged. The news came as a surprise to fans, who didn’t know he was even dating Woodley.

After Rodgers and Woodley’s relationship came to light, a source told ET that they’ve been together for a few months. “They have been keeping their relationship private for the most part, but are very into each other,” the source said.
