Flaunted on very-public dates and outings, and at every single Yankees home game, Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez's steamy relationship is not a secret.
Still, on the Late Show with David Letterman last night, the actress didn't give in to the host's humorously nosy questions about her romance with A-Rod.
When Letterman opened up the questioning with, "So ... uou're a big Yankees fan, and you're friends with Alex Rodriguez," Hudson giggled sheepishly.
"Yeah, he's a friend of mine. Nice guy," she said.
So how did she and the Rod meet? "Can't we talk about the holidays?" she asked. Did she and the baseball star spend Thanksgiving together? Nothing.
Kate Hudson played it coy on the subject of A-Rod ... for once.
Letterman then prodded, "So is he a nice guy?" Hudson finally caved, saying, "Yeah, he's a nice guy ... You just can't help yourself! You just can't!"
"I knew it was going to come at some point!"
When Dave pointed out, "His game changed when you started showing up regularly at ball games," Hudson responded, "It was a really fun summer."
She refused to take credit for the Yankees' 27th World Series title, but there's no doubt Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez dating had a positive effect.
