Apparently, Shailene Woodley is Now Dating Pro Rugby Player Ben Volavola
Shailene Woodley‘s been dropping hints that she has a new boyfriend for a little while now, but we finally have a name — New Zealand rugby player Ben Volavola!
Fans started speculating that the Big Little Lies actress had a new man in her life after she posted a hand-holding picture on Instagram just over a week ago.
She didn’t tag the mystery human and simply wrote, “Pillars. are. everything. #pleaseshowupforsomeonetoday.” Definitely not giving away too much info there…
Several days later, she shared ANOTHER ~suspicious~ photo.
Woman’s Day magazine reports that Shai’s mystery man is Ben Volavola, a professional athlete who she met while filming the upcoming movie Adrift in Fiji, where he plays for the national team, this summer. Apparently, the 25-year-old, who is now working on location in New Zealand, has been attending many of the 26-year-old’s North Harbour rugby matches and isn’t trying too hard to hide their relationship.
A source who spotted the actress donning her man’s team’s attire at the game said, “Shailene was sitting in the stands with two girlfriends while Ben played and went wild when they won. She was obviously really proud of him. Apparently she’s been to lots of games this season.”
SW is usually pretty private when it comes to her romantic relationships, so it’s not that surprising that she hasn’t talked about her new love yet. In fact, we’re more shocked that she posted those Instagram pictures in the first place — she had to know fans would freak the eff out, right??
Here’s a look at all the Hollywood hotties Shailene has been linked to in the past:
