Aaron Rodgers’ odd Jodie Foster shout-out suddenly makes sense

Aaron Rodgers is stuffed with surprises.

When the Packers quarterback was once named NFL MVP for the 3rd time in his occupation previous this month, Rodgers coyly introduced his engagement — to actress Shailene Woodley, after only some months of courting – and incorporated Jodie Foster in his record of thanks’s.

Jodie Foster, the Oscar-winning actress? What’s her tie to Rodgers?

“He simply is aware of I’m his greatest fan,” Foster defined this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Reside!”

Neatly, Foster is co-starring alongside Woodley within the upcoming movie “The Mauritanian,” so she would possibly now not also be his greatest fan at the set. Until possibly she presented the couple. That section stays unclear.

Foster instructed Conan O’Brien in 2016 that she watches the Packers play each weekend and become hooked at the cheesehead a part of Packers fandom when she was once presented to the staff through a pal. Rodgers incorporated her in his record of people who make up his off-field staff.

“You spot, he stated ‘my staff,’ despite the fact that he stated ‘off the sphere.’ That makes me a Inexperienced Bay Packer,” Foster instructed Kimmel. “Folks stay pronouncing to me, ‘No, Jodie, that doesn’t imply you’re a part of the staff.’ But it surely does imply I’m a part of the staff.”

Foster instructed Kimmel she does now not know Rodgers. It sort of feels coincidental that she and Woodley are in the similar film and have been each referenced, despite the fact that Foster was once name-dropped and Woodley was once now not.

“I don’t know if that’s a twist of fate … and she or he’s implausible,” Foster stated. “So we spent a large number of time on ‘The Mauritanian’ in combination in a little bit tent with a little bit air-conditioning spitting at us, speaking about our lives, and recipes, and other people we hate, and such things as that.”

After Kimmel added, “and the Inexperienced Bay Packers,” Foster conceded, “and the Inexperienced Bay Packers by some means got here up!”
