Alex Rodriguez talks highly of ex Diaz, makes Clooney his role model

While the two have split after their one-and-a-half-year long relationship, the New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez says, in a recent interview with "The Insider", that he still treasures the time he had with his old flame, Cameron Diaz, calling her personality an “amazing light.” He also does not make any attempts to hide the inspiration he draws from George Clooney as he declares him his new role model.

In the interview, Rodriguez loosens up about his relationship with Diaz, showing no hard feelings for the breakup that made headlines in September last year. “I don’t like talking about my relationships. But I will tell you about CD,” Rodriguez says, mentioning Diaz by her initials. “She is probably one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever met and just an amazing light.”

Rodriguez and Diaz had an on and off relationship for nearly 18 months until a source told People Magazine that they had parted ways for good. Even when the news was made official, Rodriguez insisted he had a lot of love for Cameron. "We’ll always be friends,” he said.

When Kevin Frazier asks him about his plans of walking down the aisle once again, Rodriguez says, “I’m not sure. I think my new hero is George Clooney. He’s my new role model.” As the baseball star laughs on his own statement, he says he thinks what the all-time bachelor, Clooney, is doing appears to be the best thing for him right now.

Rodriguez doesn’t seem to care about all the scrutiny he has gone through involving his personal life and athletic abilities. “Ah, You know, it New York --- people are always going to have an opinion with pretty much anything you do, both on and off the field,” he says.

Rodriguez appears to have consistent taste when it comes to dating blonds. After ditching his wife, Cynthia Scurtis, in 2008, with whom he has two daughters - Natasha, 7 and Ella, 4 -, his next famous relationship was with Diaz, and no sooner he got over the split he was spotted in Miami enjoying a bike ride with another of his sporty blond girlfriend, Ella Magers.

The 36-year-old is currently dating WWE Diva Torrie Wilson, who is also good friends with Clooney. The interview with A-Rod with "The Insider" airs Thursday night.
