Cameron Diaz Doesn't Believe in Monogamy

cameron diazSome people dream of meeting "the one" and getting married and staying married and faithful for the rest of their lives. Cameron Diaz is not that kind of person. And while she may not be as much as a serial dater as Kate Hudson, Cammy D's list of conquests have been mighty impressive. 

Maybe if everyone got as much sexy time as Cameron, we'd all be singing the same tune. Why settle when you can have the next best thing ... next? Or maybe Cam is saying this because she's only met "Mr. Right Now" instead of "Mr. Right."

Whenever I hear someone trashing monogamy, it just makes me think they are poo-pooing the idea because they want all that mushy comfy love (and hot sex) that comes with being with one person and they just can't find it. So instead they bash the notion in an attempt to make themselves feel better.

“The way we’re living now, we’ve got another 50 years with that person. Who would want to be with the same person for 80 years? Why not break it up a little bit?” she said according to an article on Access Hollywood.

If Cameron Diaz wasn't a Hollywood superstar and living in the land of La La, I would almost bet my Kia (the most pricey thing I have) that she wouldn't be saying this. Who would want to be with the same person for 80 years? That would be me, Cameron. That's what I want. But then she goes on to clarify:

“I think the big misconception in our society is that we’re supposed to meet [the one] when we’re 18 and we’re supposed to get married to them and love them for the rest of our lives. Bullsh**. It doesn’t always happen that way. I think men and women can go through their 20s, 30s, and 40s and not find true love.

 “I think people get freaked out about getting married and spending 20 or 30 years sleeping with the same person but [if that’s the case] don’t do it.”

She sure is thinking a lot about this. I agree with her -- you can find true love in any stage of your life. And yeah, if having sex with one person for 20-plus years is something you don't want to do, then don't do it. Maybe if more people listened to their inner voice (or Cameron) the divorce rate would be lower.

But then Diaz goes on to say something very curious ....

“Have someone for five years and another person for another five years. Life is long and lucky and yes, love might last forever, but you don’t always live with the person you love forever,” she added. “You can have the love the rest of your life but you might love someone else along the way, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

Is she scorned? Did she find her true love and then lose it? Who wants to guess that it's Justin Timberlake?

What do you think of Cameron's aversion to monogamy? Do you think she's harboring a love for a former flame? Do you believe in being with one person for the rest of your life?
