Alex Rodriguez says his hulking figure causes passerby on the street to often think he is Jennifer Lopez’s bodyguard. Come on, it’s pretty funny.
The 41-year-old former New York Yankee said J.Lo fans assume he is “security” and that her level of fame has “humbled him,” because he often goes unnoticed.
A-Rod tells The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, “When I was with the Yankees, and we won the world championship, and you wear the pinstripes, you think you're pretty cool. But then, you hang out with Jennifer, and they confuse me with the security guard all the time!”
The singer’s real security is usually with the couple in the street, and his build is similar to Alex’s. When the two attended the Met Gala earlier the year, he was even told to “get out of the way,” by photogs who thought he was a security guard messing up their solo shots of the singer.
“We were at the Met Ball, and the paparazzi were screaming at me, not even in English, ‘Get the hell out of the way, get out of the way! We're trying to take a picture!’” he laughed.
Meanwhile, the two are going strong, posting Instagram snaps of their families hanging out together, and Alex calling Jennifer the “smartest human being’”he has ever met.
Jennifer has said publicly: “I think we are very happy and just having a good time and don't put as much pressure as everybody else puts on it.”
