The romance between Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz started budding in 2010, but the nascent couple found the paparazzi and media attention pretty uncalled for. They didn’t want to attract any undue rumor-mongering about themselves out there. And they went to extreme limits to achieve just that.

A-Rod and The Holiday actress attended an NYC party together in 2010 but deliberately avoided any interaction to dodge the media’s eye. It was CC Sabathia’s 30th birthday party at the 40/40 club in New York and as per reports, everyone was subliminally noticing the two. PEOPLE reported,

“It was obvious that they were deliberately avoiding each other. The two of them seemed hyper-aware that everybody was staring at them, waiting for them to interact.”

The Bad Teacher star and Rodriguez weren’t in it for the long haul and eventually went their separate ways in 2011. It was a brief love affair that ended reportedly due to the duo’s busy work schedule and commitment to their career. A source revealed at the time,
