Cameron Diaz kept her distance from her rumoured boyfriend Alex Rodriguez at a birthday bash on Sunday (18Jul10) - by spending the whole night mixing with the wives of his New York Yankees team-mates.
The actress has gone to great lengths to keep her reported romance with the sports ace out of the public domain, but recently referenced their relationship in a magazine interview, saying, "I grew up with the (Los Angeles) Dodgers, but now I'm a Yankees fan."
And the pair kept a low profile at a party for baseball player CC Sabathia's 30th birthday in New York - Diaz arrived separately from Rodriguez and they spent most of the evening apart, according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.
The publication reports the Charlie's Angels star was a huge hit with his team-mates' partners - because she didn't attract attention like his previous Hollywood girlfriend Kate Hudson.
An insider tells the publication, "Cameron doesn't cling to A-Rod like Kate Hudson, whose front row antics didn't go down well with the wives. Cameron kept it low-key and hung with the girls. She and Alex stayed on opposite sides of the room but they kept glancing and smiling. He didn't look at another girl."
Rodriquez split from Hudson in December (09).
