LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jodie Foster thanked Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers at the Golden Globes and fulfilled a promise the actress made before her victory.

Foster made it clear on Sunday night that she was not introducing Rodgers to actress Shailene Woodley, who recently confirmed her engagement to the NFL MVP.

“I’ve never met Aaron Rodgers, but it’s possible that I would love to talk about how much I love the Green Bay Packers,” said Foster in virtual behind-the-scenes commentary. “Sometimes I can talk a little too much about it, so of course Shailene was very aware of my enthusiasm for the team.”

Foster won for supporting actress in a film for “The Mauretanian,” in which she co-starred with Woodley.

“I just got a very cute video from Aaron Rodgers saying he’s going to get me back,” Foster told reporters. We’ll see who wins. “

The public back and forth between Oscar winner Foster and Rodgers began in early February when he thanked Foster after being named MVP on the NFL Honors Show. Rodgers casually dropped the note that he was engaged during his acceptance speech.

Foster later said on Jimmy Kimmel Live that she would thank Rodgers if she won a globe, and she kept her promise.
