Hollywood actress Shailene Woodley is no longer being shy about her love for North Harbour rugby player Ben Volavola, posting on Instagram that she's still "crushing hard" on him.

"When you Facetime yo man first thing in the am only to discover he's already wearing black in support of @timesupnow. Damn I love him," the Divergent star captioned the snaps.

Volavola was sporting a black sports top to show his support of the slew of Hollywood actors protesting against sexual misconduct at the Golden Globes award ceremony.

It's the first time Woodley has publicly admitted her love for the Australian-born Fijian, now based in New Zealand. She was spotted in Hamilton watching Volavola play earlier this year.

A fan also got snap with the smitten couple after a game he played against Hawkes Bay at QBE stadium on September 29.

Woodley and Volavola first started dating when she was in West Auckland last year, filming scenes for her new movie, Adrift.

She posted pictures on Instagram of her travels around the country, mostly with Volavola by her side.
