Alex Rodriguez may have lost Jennifer Lopez, but he still has his sense of humor.
While covering the American League Division Series, the former MLB star, 46, joked about his single status following his split from Lopez, 52, earlier this year.
It all started when the live FOX Sports broadcast started showing footage of players from the Tampa Bay Rays chilling in the dugout and eating popcorn.
“It’s not the first time people had been eating popcorn in the middle of the game,” co-anchor Kevin Burkhardt said, as throwback footage of Cameron Diaz, 49, hand-feeding Rodriguez popcorn during the 2010 Super Bowl popped on the screen.
“KB, that’s maybe why I’m single,” Rodriguez, who briefly dated Diaz from 2010 to 2011, quipped.
The moment caused all four anchors to burst into laughter, taking a moment to pause before moving on.
Meanwhile, Rodriguez’s ex-fiancée had Ben Affleck mesmerized at yet another red carpet event, this time for the premiere of “The Last Duel” in New York City.
The duo seemingly couldn’t take their eyes — or hands — off of each other Saturday night. At one point, Lopez used her clutch as a shield to cover their faces as Affleck, 49, pulled her in to steal a kiss right in front of the cameras.
Unlike A-Rod, Affleck has been gushing about how great his life has been now that he’s rekindled his steamy romance with Lopez.
“I’m very happy. It is a very happy time in my life. Life is good,” the actor said while attending “The Tender Bar” premiere on Oct. 4.
