Shailene Woodley recently opened up while talking with Porter magazine about her hardships after her split from Aaron Rodgers last year. The actress spoke about how her personal life affected her performance on the television series, "Three Women." She told the publication, "It was hard to film because I was going through the darkest, hardest time in my life; it was winter in New York, and my personal life was sh-tty, so it felt like a big pain bubble for eight months." Woodley recalled how shooting her show helped her overcome the pain by saying, "I was so grateful that at least I could go to work and cry and process my emotions through my character." The comments seem to coincide with her very public split from NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The actress went on to further explain that time in her life, leaving many to believe that she was referencing Rodgers. "It honestly never really hit me that millions of people around the world were actually watching these things and paid attention to them," said Woodley. "Then, I dated somebody in America who was very, very famous. It was the first time that I'd had a quote-unquote 'famous' relationship, and I watched the scrutiny, opinions, the desire for people to know my life and his life and our life – it just felt violating in a way that, before, it was fun. I'm a very private person, and so I found that any time I posted anything, I instantly felt like I was sharing too much of who I am with people I didn't necessarily trust."

Woodley and Rodgers were believed to have begun dating in the summer of 2020 before getting engaged in February 2021. The pair were said to have split up just a year after their engagement in February 2022.
