Alex Rodriguez Talks Ex-Girlfriend Cameron Diaz: 'Greatest Human Being'

Posted: 04/26/2012 9:33 am Updated: 04/26/2012 1:53 pm

A-Rod has only shining words to say about ex-gal pal Cameron Diaz. The typically reserved Yankees baseball player, 36, opens up to The Insider's Kevin Frazier about Diaz, 39, whom he dated from July 2010 to September 2011, in a new show being broadcast Thursday. "I don't like talking about my relationships, but I will tell you about CD: She's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and just an amazing light."

Rodriguez and Diaz were frequently seen hitting Mexico, Miami, New York and Los Angeles together, both on the beach and working out. But the third baseman may not be ready for any further commitment than that. He told Frazier that he admired Hollywood's most notorious bachelor, presumably for his single-man ways: "I think my new hero is George Clooney... He's my new role model."

Rodriguez is currently dating former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson; he also had a brief relationship with actress Kate Hudson, in 2009, and was tied romantically to Madonna, in 2008.
