It does not just stop to this, according to some sources this on-screen couple was seen very close to each other, they were holding hands, enjoying the desert and even kissing passionately.

There's more to the fire, James and Woodley seem touching each other quite closely in photographs as well. But, that could be just PR for the movies, couldn't it?

So what does the fiance has to say about it? Is the co-star the reason for their wedding to get postponed? Are the rumors of their break up true? Could very well be, but we won't know for sure until we hear anything from the involved parties.

Why Has the Wedding Postponed? Ruth Kearney says;

Ruth Kearney has made it clear that the wedding has not postponed due to Woodley or any other issue but they do not want to rush into the relationship and end up like others.

Also, as a matter of fact, Kearney is busy with her Netflix series Flaked. There she plays the role of Claire/London. So, it seems like scheduling and busy lives are the reasons. Let's hope that is the case. Also, Woodley is too sweet and practical for a girl to be a home wrecker!

It seems like fans and the media wanted Theo James and Woodley to get together so bad, they invented stories to break up James' engagement. Now, that's just sad!


Post all the love triangle drama, all three stars have sort out their problems. As per the recent reports, Ruth and Theo got married in an intimate ceremony. The couple tied the knot in August 2018. 

On the other hand, Shailene confirmed dating Rugby Player Ben Volavola.
