After Aaron Rodgers split, Shailene Woodley went through 'darkest, hardest time in my life,' more news

By Mark Gray of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 7: Shailene Woodley is opening up about the "dark" time she had after her split from Aaron Rodgers. However, she was able to work out some of her feelings through her character in the upcoming Showtime series "Three Women." "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 shitty, so it felt like a big pain bubble for eight months," she told Porter. "I was so grateful that at least I could go to work and cry and process my emotions through my character." The actress never mentioned the NFL quarterback by name, but the timeline of their romance matches up with her statements and filming schedule. "It honestly never really hit me that millions of people around the world were actually watching these things and paid attention to them. 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," she said. "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."
