Cameron Diaz Makes a Mockery of Pregnancy

cameron diazI don't know what it is about Cameron Diaz, but I just can't stand her. I've tried to like her, really I have (lying!), but I'm simply incapable of developing an affinity for the actress. And now this -- this makes me dislike her even more.

In the handy-dandy photo to your left, you'll notice Ms. Diaz sporting a cute, little baby bump. No, she's not carrying Alex Rodriguez's love child, she's shooting a scene for the upcoming romantic-comedy, What to Expect When You're Expecting (whole 'nother post).

And it's driving me bonkers.


First of all, will I be going to see this movie? That would be a negatory, ghost rider. And not just because Cameron Diaz is in it. Because everything I've heard about it sounds lame. And the above photo isn't exactly making a case otherwise. Hear me out.

I think pregnant women are beautiful -- and that's not just some la-di-da-I-work-for-a-mom-website B.S. statement, it's true. I love them. But this is not a completely accurate -- at least from what I've seen -- depiction of pregnant women. Cameron is as golden as a golden retriever, her legs are more defined than Serena Williams', and her arms make Madonna's look like Olive Oil's. Yes, Cameron is playing a fitness instructor in the film, but, come on, dude! She looks like she's a single outfit change away from the Golden Globes in this photo. Pregnant woman are beautiful, but something about this picture just strikes me as ... weird.

And how come Cameron is the one starring in this movie? Seems like a little bit of an odd choice, being that she has never been pregnant herself. I think someone like Reese Witherspoon or Kate Hudson would have made for a better choice. In this photo -- and, yes, it's a snap judgement -- Cameron looks how she does in every single other movie she's ever been in. Save for the itty-bitty baby bump.

Look, it may seem like I'm being a little hard on Cameron right now, but I can't help it! Like I said, something about her just really rubs me the wrong way. I think it started with her dancing in underoos in Charlie's Angels. Surely, you have a celeb who gives you a similar reaction? I just would like to see her, I don't know, do something different for once. Maybe play some sort of dark character with dark hair? Or a brainy character with red hair? Anything but the same thing over and over and over and over again.

Then again, who am I kidding? She still would irritate me.

What do you think about Baby Bump Diaz?
