The Charlie’s Angels star was caught on camera lovingly putting popcorn in the New York Yankees baseball slugger’s mouth at the Super Bowl earlier this year (Feb11) – and she admits she was stunned by the fuss the harmless moment caused.
Appearing as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman on Monday (20Jun11), she recalled the popcorn pap shot and briefly let her true feelings for her sportsman beau show.
She told the host, “We were watching the game and I was eating and it was getting down to the last couple of pieces of popcorn and all of the sudden I see a hand coming in. Anybody who knows me does not put their hand in my food, especially when it’s close to my mouth.
“I said, ‘What are you (doing)? That’s mine!’ And then I went, ‘You know what, I love you too much; I’m going to give it to you. You deserve it.’
“It was the only piece of popcorn that I even put near his face and they (photographers) happen to have the camera on, right when I did it.
“Ten minutes later we’re blowing up on our BlackBerries. We started laughing so hard, like, are you kidding me?”
Diaz then reenacted the tender moment by feeding Letterman popcorn from a bucket he produced from behind his desk.
Asked about her feelings for Rodriguez, Diaz responded, “He’s pretty awesome.”
