“Not only am I a big Packers fan, but I am the competitive MVP with Aaron Rodgers,” Foster told reporters in the press room after her big win, Entertainment Weekly reported. “I just got a very cute video from him where he says he is going to get me back. So we’ll see who wins.”
Rodgers recently hit headlines after thanking Foster in his 2020 AP Most Valuable Player speech.
Foster, who worked with Rodgers’ fiancée Shailene Woodley on “The Mauritanian”, clarified backstage that she did not introduce the two.
“She’s the best,” Foster said of Woodley. “I did not set up Shailene and Aaron, I have never met Aaron Rodgers.”
“But it is possible that I do like to talk about how much I love the Green Bay Packers and sometimes I can talk a little bit too much about that so, of course, Shailene was very aware of my enthusiasm for the team,” she added.
Foster then also revealed that the two are now in “competition”.
“I just got a very cute video from Aaron Rodgers where he says he’s going to get me back,” Foster continued, “so I’m looking forward to this. We’ll see who wins.”
Previously, Foster called him out during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last month.
“He just knows I’m his biggest fan,” she said at the time, insisting the pair didn’t know one another really.
Foster, a longtime Packers fan, 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.”
During the same event, Rodgers also revealed he was engaged. The news came as a surprise to fans, who didn’t know he was even dating Woodley.
