It’s not part of his life. It’s part of THE life.
What is the life? For Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers it’s being big shot celebrity that dates an actress and has his every move documented.
Stuff normal people do on the regular is now an event for paparazzi when Aaron Rodgers is involved.
“I think for the people who are looking at those sites, there’s always stuff going on. It’s kind of the way of life when you live in L.A.; you often run in to some of that stuff,” Rodgers said. “It’s just part of the life now.
“But it’s fun. I think there’s a big crossover going on between obviously style and fashion and sports and entertainment. Obviously, you guys [in the media] have a job to do every single day, so you’re going to write about something, report about something. That’s your job. We live in the spotlight and you kind of get used to it.”
That sounds like a man who is in love with his increasingly lofty celebrity status.
It’s also a far cry from the guy who used to guard his privacy like a hawk and refused to answer any questions about his personal life.
That’s one difference.
Do you know what the other difference is?
Look, maybe it’s coincidence, but last offseason was the first in which Rodgers really became a public figure of interest for paparazzi and gossips. Obviously, that increased exposure was a result of dating Olivia Munn.
On the field, Rodgers had the worst season of his career.
The spotlight is even brighter this year.
Rodgers’ play in 2016 should give us a fairly definitive answer to whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
Either way, Rodgers doesn’t sound like he’s interested in dialing it back.
