Inside Shailene Woodley's romantic history: The actress popularly dated Aaron Rodgers for two years: Complete story here!
Shailene Woodley is best known for her work in The Descendants, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination, The Spectacular Now, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Divergent Series. Woodley has spent most of her life in the spotlight as she ventured into acting at a young age. Starting from minor roles in Replacing Dad, The District, and Crossing Jordan, Woodley's first notable role came in A Place Called Home.
Born on November 15, 1991, in San Bernardino, California, Woodley started modeling and acting at the age of four. She would go on to rise to fame after starring as the main character in ABC's family series The Secret Life of the American Teenager for six seasons. Aside from her blossoming career in showbiz, Shailene is also well-known for her high-profile dating life. The Fault in Our Stars actress recently got candid about her past dating experience, and we all can agree that the actress has been through some hard times.
Inside Shailene Woodley's Romantic History!
Woodley's love life seldom churns any headlines, and when it does, it's almost always a bombshell. The Descendants actress seemingly claimed to be romantically fluid in a 2014 interview- "I fall in love with human beings based on who they are, not based on what they do or what sex they are," Woodley said. Although the actress has kept her love life pretty low profile from the beginning, she doesn't mind candidly divulging her idea about love. "When you're truly in love, for me, it's … you're my lighthouse," the actress once said.

The Big Little Lies star has had her share of romances and heartbreaks over the years. Woodley was still an up-and-coming star in Hollywood when she was linked with musician Nahko Bear. The two reportedly dated from 2014 to 2016, although they never made their relationship official. The California native was rumored to be dating her Divergent co-star Theo James after her breakup with Bear. The duo's relationship, again, was an unconfirmed alliance based on many believable proofs.

The Fault in Our Stars alum's first official romance came with athlete Ben Volavola. After being linked in 2017, the two confirmed their romance at the start of 2018 and, by May, made their red carpet debut as a couple. Although Volavola is certainly not the best known of Shailene's many boyfriends, the actress revealed they were serious and almost considered marriage and children. "I realized I was still at an age where I wasn't able to fully commit. I couldn't be available to him in the way that I wanted to be," the actress said.
Woodley famously dated NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers from 2020 to 2022. The pair started off as friends and soon found themselves dating long-distance. Insiders believed the duo wasn't the perfect match for each other, as their romance ensued during the lockdown. "Everything was so different during lockdown, and they had been living in their bubble," an insider said. In a whirlwind romance, Woodley and Aaron were engaged within months of dating. "It's an honor to win this award for the third time," the NFL player said before referring to Woodley as his fiancée.

The twosome's engagement was still a swirling rumor despite Rodgers' indicative remarks, so Woodley had to step forward to calm the fans and media into a frenzy. "Yes, we are engaged. We are engaged," Shailene said, adding, "but for us it's not new news, you know. So it's kind of funny. Yeah, we've been engaged for a while." The duo called it quits for the first time in February 2022, only to patch things up within days. The pair's relationship ended for good in April 2022.
Is Shailene Woodley Dating Anyone?
The Golden Globe-nominated actress has been single ever since her split from Rodgers. The Spectacular Now actress revealed that the breakup hit her hard, and she was in the pits for months. "It was hard to film because I was going through the darkest, hardest time in my life," says Woodley, who was filming her show Three Women amid her breakup. The 31-year-old further explains, "It was winter in New York, and my personal life was s–tty, so it felt like a big pain bubble for eight months."

Shailene dishes on how she channeled her heartbreak into her character. "I was so grateful that at least I could go to work and cry and process my emotions through my character," Woodley said. The Big Little Lies singer might be single for now, but things aren't looking any less thrilling for Shailene, who's gearing up to star in many genre-bending projects. Woodley is set to star in the upcoming thrillers Misanthrope, Panopticon and the television series Three Women.
