Alex Rodriguez: 'I Just Had to F--king Change and Stop Being a Jerk'

Former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, who is now dating Jennifer Lopez (photosJennifer Lopez photos), admits in a new interview that he was a "jerk" during most of his playing days.

Rodriguez, 42, says he hit rock bottom when he was suspended during the 2014 MLB season for using performance-enhancing drugs.

"There were nights in Miami when I was close to tapping out," he tells THR. "I used it to turn the lens inward... It’s probably too soon for me to say this, but maybe in 10 years I'll be able to say that the ’14 sabbatical’ was one of the best things that happened in my life."

"I'll say this: That year off I just had to f--king change and stop being a jerk."

Now, with his upcoming stint as a guest investor on 'Shark Tank', he expresses: "It's night and day how content and happy and proud I am."

"It starts with being accountable. When people can see that you're genuine, that's when they pay attention. You have to own your sh-t."

As for JLo, he says: "We both appreciate where we are in our lives. We appreciate being parents, and we're so similar; we're both kind of workaholics."
