The romance between Cameron Diaz and Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez may have expired back in September, but the professional athlete claims to have nothing but respect for the 5'9" actress. 

“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” A-Rod told The Insider.

But did a broken heart forever ruin the athlete’s chance to find love? When asked about marriage, Alex told the show he’s now taking a cue from infamous bachelor George Clooney.

"I think my new hero is George Clooney,” A-Rod said. “He’s my new role model. I think he’s done it right.” 

If it’s an endless bachelor role model the slugger’s after, Alex might want to keep looking. George has been looking pretty blissfully in love with girlfriend Stacy Keibler for many months now!
