Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez had a very public relationship and had a dramatic breakup. That’s how he responded to a question that Lopez would be moving on with Ben Affleck so quickly.
What Alex Rodriguez Said When Asked About Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
While Who is talking to Chris Wallace? On HBO Max, Rodriguez was primarily asked about his baseball career with the New York Yankees and what he’s up to now. However, the conversation eventually turned to Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.
Chris Wallace asked Rodriguez how he felt about Lopez moving on with Affleck so quickly. The former baseball player tried his best not to get too deep into his feelings about the breakup.
“First of all, I would say that I’m glad I’m never going to be a presidential candidate,” Rodriguez tells Wallace. “Because you would pound me. With Jennifer, look, it was a good experience. And I wish her and the children – who are smart and beautiful and wonderful – I wish them the very best.”
That’s all Rodriguez had to say about his former fiancee. We suspect he would have liked to say a lot more, but that’s all he would divulge.
Alex Rodriguez on whether he’s ‘husband material’ or just ‘likes the hunt’
Wallace then asks Rodriguez if he should settle down and be a husband. Rodriguez, who has been married before, says he’s had “a lot of therapy.” He admits he got “lost” somewhere during his career, but says he’s managed to get back to who he was before fame.
“I think if you look at my life I mentioned when I was 15 years old and I think Sports Illustrated called me one of the top players in the country,” says Rodriguez. “And at that time, I was Alex Rodriguez. And then somewhere along the way, at 24, I get a $250 million contract, and I’m probably a little lost. I became A Rod. And I think after the suspension I worked my way through a lot of therapy, a lot of work back to Alex Rodriguez.”
Rodriguez says he’s a better person after being suspended by the Yankees for taking performance-enhancing drugs. He says prior to the suspension his focus was on cars, women and winning games. After the suspension, he focused on family, character and loyalty, he says. He believes that now that he has worked on himself in therapy, he will make a “wonderful” partner or husband.
What Jennifer Lopez learned after breaking up with Alex Rodriguez
Lopez says she had “the best time” of her life after she and Rodriguez ended their relationship. She says she’s learned to come to terms with being single. “I’ve really gotten to a point in my life where I’m great on my own, and I think when you get to that place amazing things happen to you,” she says during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got married earlier this year
Lopez reunited with Affleck shortly after the end with Rodriguez. The couple had been engaged before, so they picked up right where they left off. It wasn’t long before they got engaged a second time and then married.
Lopez wrote about their wedding day in her fan newsletter. She says marrying Affleck was like a dream she didn’t want to wake up from.
“When he saw me appear at the top of the stairs in that moment, it made perfect sense yet seemed incredibly hard to believe like the best dream where all you want is to never wake up,” Lopez says in her newsletter.
“When I got close enough to see his face, it made the same wonderful sense to me,” she continues. “Some old wounds were healed that day and the burden of the past was finally lifted from our shoulders. The circle closes – and not at all as we had planned. Better.”
