Sure she has the gorgeous face, incredible eyes, and legs longer than some small women, but at least Cameron Diaz has to work to keep in shape like most of us.
"Five times a week," she says in an interview with Harper's Bazaar, whose August cover she graces. "Exercise for me is like eating, sleeping, and breathing. I'm consistent, and when I'm not consistent, it shows up on my body. I get really skinny, and I know it might sound like, ‘Well, good for you.' But the body that people talk about is not me trying to stay slim, it's the one where I work hard to keep weight on me."
As much as I like her, I have to admit that last part makes me hate her a little.
When asked if she thinks her ass has been the asset most responsible for her success, she doesn't deny it.
"Ha! That's funny, because most booties that propel girls are usually the bigger booties. I have a little tiny one, but it is, nonetheless, juicy."
I think most men would agree.
As for growing older, she says she feels better about herself now than she ever has.
"Oh, I feel so much more attractive now. A thousand percent. I'm appreciating my skin and my wrinkles and all those things because you cannot stop aging, you can't." Well, you could. "Yes! The only way to stop it is if you die."
Easier said than embraced, at least when I look in the mirror ...
Does Cameron Diaz's approach to fitness and aging inspire you or make you roll your eyes?
