Alex Rodriguez: Cameron Diaz Is "One of the Greatest Human Beings... Ever"

The Yankees baseball star, who split with Diaz last September, has nothing but kind things to say about his ex

Talk about a nice guy! Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz always kept their relationship hush-hush during their time together, but now that they've split the Yankees star is ready to open up about his ex (at least a little bit). And he has nothing but sweet things to say about his former leading lady.

"I don't like talking about my relationships," Rodriguez tells The Insider (via Page Six). "But I will tell you about CD (his pet name for Diaz): She's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and just an amazing light."

The couple was in an on-again, off-again relationship from July 2010 to September 2011. They ultimately split because they were too dedicated to their professional lives, but Rodriguez has since gone on to find love with Torrie Wilson.

When asked if he would ever marry again, Rodriguez seemed hesitant. He was married to wife Cynthia for six years, but ended up getting a divorce in 2008. Apparently he's planning on modeling his personal life after a certain Oscar-winning, marriage-flouting celebrity from here on out to avoid any more relationship issues.

"I'm not sure," he says. "I think my new hero is George Clooney. He's my new role model. I think he's done it right."

Does he mean the refusing to get married again part, or is he referring to the fact that he and Clooney are both dating former professional female wrestlers? We're guessing the former, but he can at least get away with telling Wilson that he meant Clooney was doing it right by dating an esterwhile WWE star. After all, Torrie is close friends with Clooney's girlfriend Stacy Keibler.
