A report that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is unconvinced against COVID-19 sheds new light on his friendship with Hollywood star Miles Teller, whose refusal to vaccinate and positive COVID test this summer was reportedly a studio complaint. The cost was millions of dollars when production was halted. On his new TV series.
It also raises questions about whether the current league MVP violated NFL safety protocols or lied about his vaccination status when he told reporters in August that he had been “immunised.”
Along with the report, it’s also possible that fans of Rodgers and his actress fiancée, Shailene Woodley, will see the popular new celebrity couple differently, especially the way they rejoiced their visit last spring to celebrate their engagement. was promoted from
Visits included two with Taylor, a co-star in Woodley’s “Divergent” films, and Taylor’s wife, model Kelly Sperry. Rodgers and Woodley met with Taylor and Sperry at the Kentucky Derby in April, then the four enjoyed a lavish, fun-filled vacation to Maui in late May, where they hiked to a waterfall and shared a dance and singing session. Maui hit the nightspot.
Rodgers has not been vaccinated, but Packers coach Matt LaFleur would not confirm or deny the report in a press conference, NFL media reported Wednesday. People who have been vaccinated may suffer break-through infection. Rodgers’ positive COVID-19 means Jordan Love will start in his place during Sunday’s road game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
LaFleur would only say of Rogers’ vaccination choice: “I think everyone has to make their own individual decision.”
According to NFL policy, vaccinated players or employees who test positive and are asymptomatic can come back after two negative tests at 24-hour intervals. For non-vaccinated players, an isolation period of 10 days is required.
Sportswriter and television commentator Mike Florio said that Rodgers “basically lied” about his vaccination status when he told reporters in August: “Yes, I have been immunised. There are people on the team who have I haven’t got vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision, I’m not going to judge those people.”
When LaFleur was asked Wednesday whether Rodgers’ answer about being “immunized” was misleading, the coach said, “That’s a good question for Aaron.”
Florio also pointed out that several times Rodgers has not been seen wearing a mask during preseason or on the shore. According to NFL policy, unvaccinated players are required to wear masks indoors at all times except when eating.
If Rodgers’ choice not to vaccinate is causing headaches for the Packers and their industry, Taylor has something in common.
The “Whiplash” star came down on Hollywood actors who have expressed doubts about a COVID-19 vaccine or who are refusing to be vaccinated.
In October, a story in The Hollywood Reporter detailed the case of an unnamed high-profile actor who was said to be without vaccinations, working on a film this summer, when he tested positive for COVID-19. and he had to be admitted to the hospital.
The reporter said the actor was “known as a dismissal of vaccines for the cast and crew,” but after the star tested positive for COVID-19, other crew members also became ill, leaving production three weeks away. and eventually production cost the company seven figures.
The Daily Mail said in October that the Hollywood Reporter account aligns with its previous report alleging that Taylor caused headaches by refusing vaccinations on the set of her new film. The Mail said that his positive test in late July forced production on the Los Angeles set of “The Offer,” a Paramount+ series about the making of “The Godfather,” to be halted.
The Daily Mail quoted a production source who said in July: “Taylor has not been vaccinated. He won’t even be tested. Now he has brought the virus on the set and the entire set has to be shut down.”
The Daily Mail also reported that stopping work cost the production company $6 million. At the time, Taylor’s publicist told the Daily Mail that her “facts are wrong”, while a representative for Paramount+ told The Hollywood Reporter that the number was less than $6 million.
