Why Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers' Wedding Plans Are on Hold

E! NEWS 21 July, 2021 - 02:00pm

In fact, they're not even thinking about planning right now, as Shailene recently revealed on the Today show. While discussing her new film with Felicity JonesLast Letter from Your Lover, the actress noted that, given the current state of the world, a wedding is not on the top of their to-do list.

"Honestly, that's not even a conversation we've had with the world today, we haven't even talked about it," she said, when asked about the most "exciting" part about wedding planning. "I'm not sure what will be the most exciting component of that."

The couple, who went public with their engagement last February, has been traveling the world together in recent months. They've visited Montreal, Arkansas, Disney World, Kentucky and most recently, Hawaii with her former The Spectacular Now co-star Miles Teller and his wife, Keleigh Sperry.

Since sharing their relationship news, the Big Little Lies star has been vocal about how she's adjusting to life alongside the NFL star.

On a recent Late Night with Seth Myers appearance, Shailene said she didn't "feel any pressure" to become an expert football fan now that she's with one of the sport's most famous athletes. She explained, "The Packers games are the only ones I find really interesting because I have people to actually root for."

She joked about her lack of football vernacular, "But it is a whole new world, learning all of the different—I still am always, 'Oh, you scored a goal.' He's like, 'It's a touchdown.' Or I'll be like, 'You crossed the line,' and he's like, 'It's a yard,' or whatever." But Shailene said it's an ongoing effort for them, noting, "I still can't get it right, but I'm learning, slowly but surely."

Shailene Woodley Explains Why She's Never Been Uncomfortable in Sex Scenes

msnNOW 21 July, 2021 - 02:00pm

If there's one part of the job that many actors are uncomfortable with, it's sex scenes. Judging by the way a lot of stars talk about them, love scenes and other intimate scenes can feel, at best, awkward, and at worst, violating. But, one actor just shared that, fortunately, she has always felt in control and at ease in those moments. In a new interview with The Hollywood ReporterBig Little Lies star Shailene Woodley shared that sex scenes have never made her feel uncomfortable, and said that it's because she's always sure to cover her bases before filming even starts. Read on to see what Woodley had to say and to learn more about strides that have been made in the industry to help everyone feel safe at work.

Read the original article on Best Life.

The Hollywood Reporter interview notes that Woodley's 2020 film Endings, Beginnings features her character in multiple involved love scenes.

Woodley speaking up for herself is important, but film and TV sets have also increasingly been using intimacy coordinators to help actors feel comfortable during sex scenes and to be sure that no one is rushed into anything they haven't agreed to. Using intimacy coordinators became more widespread following the Me Too movement.

"Intimacy coordinators play an important role on set," explains the SAG-AFTRA website. "An intimacy coordinator is an advocate, a liaison between actors and production, and a movement coach and/or choreographer in regards to nudity and simulated sex and other intimate scenes."

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in April, Ewan McGregor shared that he worked with an intimacy coordinator for the first time while filming the miniseries Halston.

"This was the first thing I've ever done where we had an intimacy coordinator," McGregor said. "It was such a relief. It's about f****** time. The temptation in my experience is just for the director to go, 'Just do whatever.' It's embarrassing. That's not fair on either actor to do that."Michaela Coel, the creator and star of the acclaimed drama I May Destroy You, thanked her intimacy coordinator, Ita O'Brien, in her BAFTA's acceptance speech for Best TV Actress earlier this year. "Thank you for your existence in our industry," Coel said (via Insider), "for making the space safe, for creating physical, emotional, and professional boundaries so that we can make work about exploitation, loss of respect, about the abuse of power without being exploited or abused in the process."RELATED: Ewan McGregor Says This One Thing Makes Every Sex Scene Better.

In an April 2020 interview with the New York Times, Woodley said that she wasn't huge on working with intimacy coordinators, personally, but understood their purpose for others.

"For me, intimacy coaches make me uncomfortable because it feels like another set of eyes that I don't need," she said (via CinemaBlend). "But I have no problem stopping production when I'm uncomfortable, and I don't think that's the case for a lot of people, so I think it's wonderful that there's a lifeline that people can lean on to know they'll be protected. That being said, the best thing a director could do is ask an actor right off the bat: 'What are you comfortable with? What are your boundaries?'"RELATED: The Most Heartbreaking Movie Couples of All Time.

Aaron Rodgers Rejected Offer From Packers to Become NFL's Highest-Paid Player

InsideHook 21 July, 2021 - 11:03am

Rodgers, who will turn 38 in December, rejected a contract extension from the team that would have kept him with the Packers for the next five seasons and made him the highest-paid quarterback in the National Football League, according to ESPN.

The reigning NFL MVP has not participated in any of Green Bay’s offseason workouts and will be subject to mandatory fines that cannot be forgiven thanks to CBA rules if he doesn’t attend training camp once it begins in the next couple of weeks.

A one-time champion with the Packers, Rodgers reportedly has an issue with general manager Brian Gutekunst trading up in the draft to take quarterback Jordan Love in 2020 and may not be willing to stay with the team unless the GM is no longer with the Packers.

“With my situation, look, it’s never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan,” Rodgers said on SportsCenter in May. “I love Jordan; he’s a great kid. [It’s been] a lot of fun to work together. Love the coaching staff, love my teammates, love the fan base in Green Bay. An incredible 16 years. It’s just kind of about a philosophy and maybe forgetting that it is about the people that make the thing go. It’s about character, it’s about culture, it’s about doing things the right way.”

The Packers have come a game short of making the Super Bowl for the past two seasons with Rodgers under center and would certainly take a step back as an organization if forced to play this year with either Love or Blake Bortles taking snaps. But, if the team is committed to Gutekunst and is willing to call Rodgers’s apparent bluff about being willing to sit out the season and it backfires, that could be what happens. As Rodgers knows himself after watching the team move on from franchise legend Brett Favre in favor of him more than a decade ago, the Packers are not afraid of making big changes at the quarterback position and taking a step back in the short term for the greater good of the future of the team.

Whether he ever takes another snap for Green Bay or not, Rodgers will be getting another title ring out of Wisconsin thanks to his minority stake in the Milwaukee Bucks, who won the team’s first championship in 50 years on Tuesday.
