Cameron Diaz insists "everybody" can have a body like hers.
The 41-year-old actress is renowned for her slim and toned figure and she believes it isn't hard to achieve so long as people look after themselves properly: "Everybody can have my body. Everybody can have exactly my body but it is going to look different. It's about having the internal knowledge of that body and teaming it with the proper nutrition and fitness to have the body you're supposed to have."
Cameron singled out her friend Gwyneth Paltrow as the perfect example of how good a person can look when they take care of themselves. "Gwyneth is perfect proof of how you can maintain your natural beauty," she said.
However, the Iron Man 3 star has had some help from her pal. "I did turn her onto my bikini waxer in LA," Cameron admitted.
Cameron Diaz wishes women were kinder to each other.
The Annie star, who recently admitted she stopped using Botox because it made her face look "weird," doesn't believe anti-aging creams work and thinks women should encourage each other to grow old gracefully.
"I wish that women would let other women age gracefully and allow them to get older and know that as we get older, we become wiser," the 41-year-old said. "There's no such thing as anti-aging. There's no such thing as turning back the hands of time, and it makes me crazy that we live in a society where that's sold to women - that we're supposed to believe that if we're getting older, we've failed somehow, that we have failed by not staying young."
The blonde beauty, who recently released her new The Body Book, insists she is much happier with how she looks now than when she was younger: "I don't want to look like I did when I was 25. I like the way that I look now better than when I was 25. I can't help that other people may be uncomfortable with that, but that's not my responsibility to make them feel okay with the fact that I'm getting older. I'm okay with it. I like it."
In a sea of advertisements where underage models are constantly used and already-thin celebrities are edited until their unrecognizeable, model-turned-actress Cameron Diaz has come to change things with her new book, The Body Book.
A short behind-the-scenes video of Diaz photographing women (of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities!) for her book has been released (seen after the jump) in which the Counselor star promotes overall health and loving one's body instead of weight loss.
The 41-year-old has also been promoting going makeup free, as she even appeared in a photo holding a copy of The Body Book with what seems to be a completely fresh face!
Hopefully more celebrities take notice and jump onto Diaz's body-positive bandwagon.
