  • -My first guest is an Emmy

  • and Golden Globe-nominated actress

  • who stars alongside Jodie Foster in the new movie

  • "The Mauritanian," which is in theaters now

  • and on demand March 2nd.

  • Here's one of our favorites, Shailene Woodley, everybody.

  • Hi. -Hi!

  • -It is so nice to see you, buddy.

  • Thanks so much for coming back to our show.

  • I appreciate it. -Yeah, thanks for having me.

  • -I want to talk to you about "The Mauritanian."

  • You're fantastic in it, but before we get into that,

  • I have a lot of questions.

  • One is that I keep reading

  • that you are engaged to football great Aaron Rodgers.

  • Is that -- Is that true? Are congratulations in order?

  • -I mean, I've been reading that, too,

  • which is kind -- it's kind of funny.

  • -Yeah.

  • -Yes, we are engaged. We are engaged.

  • But for us, it's not new news, you know?

  • So it's kind of funny. Everybody right now

  • is freaking out over it, and we're like,

  • "Yeah, we've been engaged for a while."

  • [ Chuckles ] -I love that!

  • -Yeah, we -- we got engaged a while ago, and it's been --

  • He's, first off, just a wonderful,

  • incredible human being, but I never thought

  • I'd be engaged to somebody who threw balls for a living.

  • Like, I never thought as a little girl, I was like,

  • "Yeah, when I grow up, I'm gonna marry someone who throws balls.

  • Yeah!" -[ Laughs ]

  • -But he's really just so good at it.

  • And I'm impressed.

  • -He really knows how to throw a ball, yeah.

  • -He can throw fastballs, he can throw slowballs,

  • high balls, low balls.

  • When I first met him, I think my dog --

  • My dog like pulled me aside and was like,

  • "If you don't date this dude, I will disown you as my mother

  • because the 3 -- like, the 3 feet that I run with you

  • when you throw a ball is nothing compared to the marathon

  • I'm able to run with him." -Oh, I can't even imagine.

  • I mean he's -- Honestly, he's been on the show

  • a bunch of times, so please give him our best.

  • He's one of the greatest players to ever play the game.

  • Have you spent much time in Green Bay,

  • and are you a football fan? -I -- I still have never been

  • to a football game, because we met

  • during this wacky, wacky time, and all of the stadiums

  • were closed that he was playing in.

  • So I have yet to go to a football game.

  • Before I met him, I'd never seen one football game before.

  • I just didn't -- I didn't really grow up with sports,

  • especially American sports. It was never really on my radar,

  • and so all of -- When we met, also, like,

  • I knew he was a football guy, but I didn't know,

  • like, what kind of a football guy he was.

  • -Oh, my gosh.

  • -And I'm still constantly learning.

  • I'm still like, "Oh, wow!" You know, friends and --

  • "You got to watch his YouTube greatest or --"

  • And I was like, "I don't -- I don't get it.

  • He's good, he's great." -Yeah, he's really good.

  • -Like, I don't -- I don't understand.

  • -That's so funny. -Because I don't know him

  • as a football guy. I know him as like the nerd

  • who wants to host "Jeopardy!"

  • You know, like, that's the dude I know.

  • -He loves "Jeopardy!"? I love that.

  • -He just happens to also be very good at sports.

  • -Yeah. Well, that's so -- that's so great for you.

  • I'm so happy for you. You know, enjoy this time.

  • But I also heard about another thing,

  • that you took a trip to Patagonia,

  • actually even during COVID, right?

  • Kind of recently? -I did.

  • -What brought you there, and how did you get to do that?

  • -I went in December, which was a feat.

  • I mean, the reason I was able to go there was because

  • of work permits and whatnot, and I kind of got in and got out

  • before Chile shut down its borders.

  • But the whole thing was wild. Like, I landed,

  • and they check your temperature, and they were like,

  • "Oh, you have a fever. You have to get

  • back on a plane to America." -Wow.

  • -And I was like, "No, no, no! Like, I just --

  • I was wearing a turtleneck on the plane."

  • So I cooled off, and they checked it again,

  • and they were like, "You're fine."

  • -How long is the flight?

  • -It was four flights to get there.

  • -Yeah. -Because we took --

  • I took a plane from Green Bay and then a plane from Miami

  • and then a plane from the main city in Chile to the second --

  • to a smaller city in Chile.

  • Then we got off the plane, and we drove for a few hours.

  • Then we got on a boat and went up a river

  • for 45 minutes or something like that in pouring rain.

  • -And then they're like, "You gotta go back to America."

  • And you're like, "No, no, no, hold on a sec."

  • -Yeah, it was wild.

  • I mean, we were in the middle of --

  • we were in a community of people who the only access they have

  • to their homes is via river.

  • There's no roads in or out.

  • So if they want to buy anything, to bring nails to build a shed,

  • they have to travel by boat up and down the river.

  • I was down there because there's this company called Karun

  • that I have just been completely blown away by.

  • They empower these local people to become entrepreneurs,

  • and at the same time, they collect plastics and metals

  • and then they turn them into eyewear.

  • So, it's the world's first 100% sustainable,

  • reusable, renewable... -Wow.

  • -...eyewear company. And it's just --

  • It's beautiful. And Patagonia, by the way,

  • is one of the --

  • You feel like you're on the end of the world.

  • It's so sunny, and the nature is so well-preserved and pristine.

  • It's a magical place, if you've never been.

  • -I do want to go.

  • I'm gonna wait till COVID's over,

  • and I'm gonna wait till the flight is only

  • like two hours. -Yeah.

  • -If that's ever possible.

  • Let's talk about your new movie, "The Mauritanian."

  • Can you set up what it's about, and what drew you to this?

  • -Yes. So, this is a film that's based on a true story

  • about a man named Mohamedou Salahi,

  • who was held in Guantanamo Bay for over a decade

  • even though he was found innocent.

  • He was held in Guantanamo without a trial.

  • And it's the story about the lawyers

  • on both sides of the equation -- his lawyers as well as

  • the lawyers from the United States --

  • helping this man find a trial, go through the trial,

  • and then ultimately have him be released from Guantanamo Bay.

  • -Whew. -Light subject.

  • Very light subject. -Yeah, I mean, can you imagine?

  • I mean, oh, my gosh.

  • What has to go -- Everything involved with that.

  • -You know, Jodie Foster is in the film with me,

  • and she said the other day, she was like,

  • "We all have a lot to learn from him," and I completely agree.

  • So I hope when people see this movie,

  • they don't just take away the tragedy of what --

  • what the circumstances but also the humanity

  • behind this man's strength and his will to survive,

  • and not just survive but survive in, like,

  • a really beautiful and profound way.

  • -How is Jodie Foster?

  • She's just the coolest ever, right?

  • -I was gonna say something sarcastic

  • and pretend like she wasn't, but she is.

  • -Yeah. -She is --

  • You just can't. You can't do that with Jodie.

  • -I know, you can't. Yeah, she's just --

  • -I mean, she is. She's the -- She's the coolest.

  • -And a pro. -She's a pro.

  • She's -- I learned so much from being around her.

  • I mean, I think the thing that moves me the most

  • about Jodie is she just loves what she does, and she's --

  • and she does it for what I would feel like are the right reasons.

  • And she uplifts every environment that she's in

  • because she stays -- she remains curious,

  • and she asks questions that I think a lot of people's minds

  • wouldn't even dare to be curious about.

  • And in that regard, I just, you know, again, humanity,

  • we all have a lot to learn from Jodie Foster, as well.

  • -There's no one cooler. The whole cast is great.

  • I want to show a clip. Here's Shailene Woodley

  • and Jodie Foster in "The Mauritanian."

  • Take a look.

  • -What's your point?

  • -He's guilty! He's [bleep] guilty!

  • -Maybe he is.

  • He still has a right to counsel.

  • -I'm not saying that he doesn't.

  • I'm saying that he helped to kill 3,000 civilians,

  • and we're doing everything we can to get him out.

  • -We're doing our job.

  • -I did bake sales for his legal fund.

  • That's not a part of my job.

  • My dad told me I'm not welcome home for Thanksgiving this year.

  • That's not a part of my job.

  • -Get out. -What?

  • -You want turkey and pumpkin pie with mom and dad and Uncle Joe?

  • Go on, get out. Go home.

  • You can't win a case...

  • if you don't believe your own [bleep]

  • -I'm not trying to leave. I'm just --

  • -Stop [bleep] wasting my time.

  • Get out.

  • -Shailene Woodley. "The Mauritanian"

  • is in theaters now and on demand March 2nd.

-My first guest is an Emmy
