A-Rod & J.Lo Dish On Their Romantic Relationship

Hollywood powerhouse Jennifer Lopez known for her amazing acting, powerful performances along with her amazing body and her Baseball Hall of Famer boyfriend Alex Rodriquez known for his record breaking baseball skills and his steroid scandal recently opened up about their romantic relationship.  Check out a few excerpts from the interview.

How J.Lo ran into Alex after knowing each other for 12 years and how this encounter lead to a date: 

Jennifer was having lunch in Beverly Hills when she saw A-Rod walk by.

I almost yelled out ‘Alex,’ but I am the shyest person when it comes to things like that. I could literally just have walked away, but I walk over and tap him on the shoulder and say ‘Hey.’ I had just come from a promo for my show, ‘’Shades of Blue’’, so I’m dressed like my character, like a boy—Timberlands, jeans, curly short hair. He looks at me. I say, ‘It’s Jennifer.’ He says, ‘You look so beautiful.’

J.Lo on her and Alex first date:

He was sitting there in his white shirt, very confident and manly, but then he was just so talkative! I think he thought I was going to be this loud person, but I’m not. I just listen. So he’s talking, talking about his plans, about how he had just retired from baseball, about how he saw himself getting married again, all these things you wouldn’t normally talk about on a first date. I don’t know if he thought it was a date. I thought it was a date. Then I knew he was nervous because he asked me if I wanted a drink. I said, ‘No, I don’t drink,’ and he asked if I minded if he had one. He was nervous, and it was really cute.

A-Rod on their first date:

I didn’t know if it was a date, Maybe we were seeing each other at night because of her work schedule. I went in uneasy, not knowing her situation. It would be incredibly productive for me to sit with one of the smartest, greatest women in the world, especially for a guy like me who is coming through tough times, rehabbing himself, re-establishing himself to folks out there. I thought it would be a win-win no matter what. She told me around the third or fourth inning that she was single; I had to get up and go re-adjust my thoughts. I went to the bathroom and got enough courage to send her a text.

J.Lo explains, So I’m sitting there and he’s walking back, and I get a text. It says.  She looks significantly at Rodriguez.

“You can tell her!” he says. ‘You look sexy AF,’ she says and they both laugh. “And then it took a turn,” Lopez says. “The fire alarm went off, and we had to evacuate.”  

A-Rod on retiring from baseball:

Baseball has a funny way of tapping you on the shoulder when you least expect it and telling you that it’s the end. I’m thinking about one door closing and another opening, and if that first door doesn’t close, well, there isn’t that second tap.

Alex on he and J.Lo are just alike:

We’re both Leos; we’re both from New York; we’re both Latino and about 20 other things. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be great, to be the best all the time. We understood that about each other. When we came together it was ‘Oh my God, I was the same way.

Jennifer on how she understands A-Rod in ways other people don’t:

I understand him in a way that I don’t think anyone else could, and he understands me in a way that no one else could ever. In his 20s, he came into big success with the biggest baseball contract [at the time]. I had a No. 1 movie and a No. 1 album and made history. We both had ups and downs and challenges in our 30s, and by our 40s we’d both been through so much. And more importantly than anything, we had both done a lot of work on ourselves.

J.Lo on being successful at a young age:

When you have that type of success at a young age you have to navigate it, almost survive it,” I was the first Latin actress to ever make $1 million from a role, and you feel, Oh God, I have to do something great all the time. There were the inevitable flops; I lost my sense of self, questioned if I belonged in this business, thought maybe I did suck at everything. And my relationship [with Affleck] self-destructed in front of the entire world. It was a two-year thing for me until I picked myself up again.

Alex on JLo being the model of good health:

She is the role model for health and wellness. She rarely drinks. She tries to get at least eight hours of sleep. That helps explain why she’s so beautiful.

Alex on life after his steroid scandal:

I felt I could work on myself, understand why I kept making mistakes, in a weird way, 2014 will be the best thing that ever happened to me. It forced a paradigm shift. I remember thinking one night . . . Don’t know if I told you this, babe [he says to Jennifer] . . . In the middle of this craziness, I remember its three A.M., four A.M., and like many nights, I couldn’t sleep. I’m not a crier, but I’m bawling. . . . My pillows are now soaking wet, and it’s the middle of the night, and I’m thinking I’m the only fucking asshole that gets pocket aces and figures out a way to lose the hand. I was so angry at myself, so pissed off, that it was hard to breathe. I did that at 40 and 100 percent clean, and no one can take that away from me, it told me everything about who I was.
