Cameron Diaz: “I never said I don’t want children. I just haven’t had them yet”

Cameron Diaz covers the May issue of InStyle to promote her horrific looking What to Expect When You’re Expecting movie, which will probably do well simply because everyone who’s ever had a baby has read that book, and surely at least several million of them will be interested enough to disregard the trailer and catch a matinee. So once again, a crappy movie will do well, but at least it’s a crappy movie geared towards women, which balances out the fact that countless crappy movies geared towards men do well all the time at the box office. (So there.) The InStyle photoshoot is rather undershelming even though Cami’s figure does look rather striking in this green dress. Here are some interview excerpts as well:

On fashion: “Couture really is an art form. I’m not trying to fit into anyone’s box about how I should be. I just fit in my own box.”

On her love life: “I would never have guessed that I would end up dating any of the guys I’ve dated–never! There’s no through-line between them. But I love love, and love comes from many different places. When I was going through a bit of a heartbreak a little while ago, I said to a friend, ‘Wow, this really hurts!’ And he said to me, ‘That just shows you what your capacity for loving is.’ I would rather have my heart broken a thousand times than never to love at all. I have so much love to give–I’m not empty of love, I’m full of love.”

On life: “I’m living my life as a journey. My quest is to make it better every year.”

On friends: “Good friendship is basic: Be good to one another, be thoughtful, enrich one another’s lives. I learn so much from my girlfriends, and I love it.”

On movies: “What I love about movies is how many people they can reach. I don’t make a movie because I think, This is something I want to say. I just want people to laugh, to cry, to feel.”

Will she have kids? “Society definitely puts pressure on women to make them think their lives should go a certain way. I’ve never said I don’t want children–I just haven’t had children yet. I don’t know what’s going to happen in my life!”

[From InStyle]

So does anyone have ideas on who broke Cami’s heart? I’m thinking it simply has to be A-Rod, especially since she went to all the trouble to get those bolt-ons he always wanted. Man, I’d be pissed if I got bolt-ons to please a dude only to get dumped. What a douche, that A-Rod.

On the topic of having children, I think Cami dodged that bullet well. While I generally have always figured that she’s a very free spirit and probably will never settle down and spawn a family of her own, she’s walking a very fine line while promoting a movie about pregnancy. While it would’ve been nice to see her pull a Zooey Deschanel and outright admit that she doesn’t plan on having kids, I can see why Cameron would decide not to take that verbal path while pimping this particular film. After all, she plays the role of a very pregnant woman, and the last thing the studio wants is for a lead actress to alienate a prospective audience. So Cami gets a pass here … even though we all know she’s full of crap with that answer.

  2. paola says:

    These pics are photoshopped into oblivion but not even photoshop could get rid of that rubber face, but those legs..oh my god those legs are incredible. i want them!! i want them now!!

  3. autumndaze says:

    Poor Cam. That is one whole boatload of Photoshop right there! :0P

  4. meme says:

    What the hell was the concept of this photo shoot?? Emoting emotions like wooden furniture? Oh, and that green dress is horrifying.

  5. Liv says:

    Heartbreaker: A-Rod
    Friend: Gwyneth Paltrow

    I like her somehow, but she’s dating the stupidest douchebags ever. It’s almost embarrassing.

  6. Bite me says:

    Are Cam and Drew still friends

  7. hillbilly in the corner says:

    I never know Photoshopping could be pushed to such extremes….and she still ending up looking like that….!!
    Which begs the question then what does she look like in person…..????????
    Hey Magazine editors heres a novel ideal how about letting the public see what people really look like not what the made for hollywood looks like…you would sale a hell of lot more magazines……

  8. lisa says:

    I never picture her in High Fashion.

    Not sure of the concept behind the shoot. But I find that with a lot of these kinds of spreads.

    I like Cam.. I just don’t like the clothes in this spread at all. She has killer legs.

  9. Nanz says:

    Re Cami being a real person and her character being very pregnant: I don’t understand that expectation from fans. Just because a character is one thing, does that necessarily mean the real human being playing her has to agree/be that thing? It seems like there is no separation anymore. Fans want their actress/actor to be the role they play (see Ryan G Notebook). That’s why I love actors like Daniel Day Lewis. I know virtually nothing about him and believe every role he plays w/o the expectation of him becoming it.

  10. kira says:

    That cover! She’s a tad photo=shopped. Just a tad.

  11. Shay Kay says:

    I can’t picture Cami married or with children but I also think she can’t either so was just being diplomatic with her answer.I actually really like her because she just seems like she’d be fun and full of life.Hope whoever she dates next is a big step up from A Rod.She’s got to deserve better than that.

  12. Me says:

    Why does she look like a man the older the she gets?

  13. Annaloo says:

    Egads, I really used to love this girl but her face is just BUSTED. Photoshop can’t fix that. She looks like Skeletor crossed with Malibu Barbie, and not in a good way. What happened to her that she just did not age well? At least she made her money early in life.

  14. YokoDMV says:

    I think the over exercising and her last nose job threw her face off and now it’ll never come back..i know she was much younger but she looked great in The Mask, with her fuller nose and also in Any Given Sunday…

  15. Gossip Hound says:

    This haircut is so awful. It looks like she cut her own hair with bad scissors. Long hair would soften her look quite a bit.

  16. Dee Cee says:

    Needs to stop drugging, partying and giving up a raunchy lifestyle with experimental freedom.. versus.. mom.. um…?

  17. TG says:

    I love the clothes and shoes she is wearing in all the shots. Just don’t like here with super short hair like that. It makes her look awful. Wish she would stop dating douches though. I have always liked her and in interviews she always sound fun and not like she is taking things too seriously and expecting to get an Oscar and knocking her work. I always wonder what the big deal of an oscar is anyways.

  18. Gene Parmesan says:

    Good she didnt have kids yet. What with all the total d-bags she’s dated. Hello diddy? A-Rod? Ferard Butler? Jared Leto? She is soo lucky in these aspects!

  19. Anastasia says:

    That interview is one of the most vapid things I’ve read in a long time. She just loves love? She’s on a journey?

    Dear God.

  20. Maria says:

    she sort of reminds me of that Seinfeld episode…remember the one?.. where Jerry dates a girl who looks amazing in a certain light, but in another, looks horrifying….?.. I agree with one of the above posters…I remember, in her first movie with Jim Carrey…she looked pretty…but something odd is happening to her face as she ages…there are many actresses that age and look the same, just more mature…but she is actually unattractive…. not ugly or anything, just bleh….

  21. thetruthhurts says:

    She was always so pretty and feminine and now she looks like a dude. I don’t get it. The arms are so big, do you think she has done some steroids? Even her face looks harder. :( The Holiday, all time favorite movie.

  22. sup says:

    there goes the sympathy i had for her honesty

  23. Hehastheherp says:

    Am I really the only one who doesn’t think she is overly photoshopped? I mean compared to other people. Cami has a GREAT bod. Her implants are very tasteful in size. She looks amazing to me. Love her.

  24. benbeny says:

    She has the leg I must admit.

  25. ramona says:

    That green dress looks like art nouveau lettuce to me.

  26. Rose says:

    Who gives a s–t about some mythical “biological clock”? I love being child-free, and my ovaries agree.
