Cameron Diaz at the What to Expect premiere: too waitressy or casual cute?

Cameron Diaz
Last night was the premiere of What to Expect when You’re Expecting, that ensemble clip show romcom that looks really cringe worthy. I doubt it will be a big success at the box office, but I could be wrong. It could be a mommy daddy date night movie, which it was probably pitched as. Battleship and The Dictator are also out next weekend, and Avengers will probably still be holding on strong, so we’ll see.

So here we have some of the main stars of the film, minus Jennifer Lopez. Why was J.Lo not there last night? Was there some last minute drama with Casper forgetting to take his ADHD medication? I’m really surprised that she wasn’t around, trying to work an inappropriately small dress with a cutout around the waist and styled to the hilt like she’s in one of her music videos. She’s done a lot of press for the film so it’s bizarre to me that she didn’t go to the premiere.

Instead we have Cameron Diaz, dressed way down in a open comfortable-looking white top and loose black pants. She looks like she’s wearing a waitress uniform at a decent restaurant. This is one of those nice-looking casual outfits you throw together for a night out and then realize that you’re dressed exactly like the wait staff, so you try to hold it in and not get up to go to the bathroom. It’s a perfectly nice outfit for a night out with friends, but I don’t think it’s fitting for a premiere. She could have chosen one of those tight short dresses that show off her killer legs.

Cam recently talked to Access Hollywood about growing older and how she thinks it’s cool. Unlike some other actresses I won’t name, it doesn’t sound like she’s blowing smoke. This is a woman with the world at her feet who is secure in her own super-fit skin. She even says she loves her ass, basically. Here’s more:

“I love getting older,” Cameron told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson of turning the big 4-0 at the “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” junket in Los Angeles on Friday. “I think it’s such a blessing.

“Look, the alternative to getting older is [being] dead, so…” she trailed off with a laugh. “I feel very fortunate to have a very full, loving, blessed life, so, I’m living it to the fullest.”

Beyond the obvious benefit of aging, the blond beauty said she’s savoring the mental and spiritual growth that occurs naturally with added life experience.

“As I get older, I become happier — because I’m wiser, I know myself better [and] I connect to people better,” she explained. “I think that in our society we don’t honor older generations enough because we think of it as being bad because the appearance changes.

“I say, embrace it. I love getting older, I love everything that comes with it — I’m better in every way because of it,” she continued.

Cameron is known for her legendary bikini body and she admitted her physique is improving with age.

“My ass is definitely higher than it was when I was 20,” she told Shaun. “This is the thing that people don’t understand — take care of your body [and it will] get better! It gets better as I get older. Absolutely.”

Cam’s philosophy seems to be that if you’re not getting older you’re dead, so you may as well embrace it. I like that approach. Does “taking care” of your body in Cam’s world mean getting a little jab here and there? Just askin’.

Meanwhile the other stars of What to Expect also looked kind of beat. Brooklyn Decker was in a white tube dress like she was having dinner seaside after a day at the beach.

Elizabeth Banks was in this beaded asian-style flower print and striped accent dress. This is Peter Pilotto, and it would have been a much better choice for her Met Gala look instead of the disaster of a dress she chose. It’s a little too busy for the red carpet.

Rodrigo Santoro just looks lickable.

What’s going on with Chace Crawford’s eyebrows? Have they always looked like that?

Chris Rock and his man scarf. He would look way cuter with shorter hair and a full goatee.

    It looks like Cameron has stop jacking with her face. And it is a nice change.

    She is a cute girl and I like her hair at this length. Even if she hates it. It is really flattering to her face.

    I am also surprise that Jennifer was not there. Dressed in a too tight… too short dress.

    • Hmmm says:

      Sloppy is how I’d describe her look. But that’s neither here nor there. J-Ho wasn’t photogged. If this skanky media ho wasn’t present then it speaks to the awfulness of the movie. Cow had the smarts to try to distance herself from this pathetic cinematic effort.

  2. Rhea says:

    Don’t like Diaz’s pants….meh… doesn’t do any good for her….

    • Vee says:

      Cameron’s face is lovely here, outfit a bit too casual.
      Elizabeth is smoking hot here, the dress is insanely beautiful on her.

      • brin says:

        I agree, Cameron looks good except for her casual outfit and Elizabeth looks great! Brooklyn looks nice, too.

  3. bea says:

    You’re absolutely right, Eliz Banks should have worn that to the Met. I love that dress and it looks great on her.

    Cam Diaz looks good in the make-up and hair dept. Not crazy about how those pants are fitting her tho….

  4. Rafa says:

    Rodrigo is looking so hot.

  5. Maguita says:

    Brooklyn looks hot! And I like Elizabeth’s look as well.

    Unfortunately Cameron looks not. Those ill-fitting pants don’t compliment her figure, and she has amazing legs to showcase. Should’ve gone for a simple short skirt. But I like the face, it has finally settled down and lost that botoxy sheen.

  6. kpist says:

    I used to crush on Chace Crawford, but lately he reminds me of the elves in LOTR. Maybe it’s his ears

  7. mel says:

    Here is what I think Cameron’s problem is…she is 40 (right?) and I’m in my 40s and its hard to figure out what to wear – you don’t want to look 20 or really even 30 but you don’t want to look matronly. I think she struggles with that issue at events..I struggle daily with it at home!

    • Vicky says:

      I completely agree with you. I just turned 50 (cough, cough) and thru my 30s and 40s I’ve been confused on which departments to shop in! I’m way too old for the juniors but the, for lack of a better word, older ladies departments are just to old. I’m still struggling with this. That said, I don’t care for her black pants and white top. It is just boring.

  8. Sara says:

    Cameron’s face looks great here! Finally things are looking good again although not too crazy about her outfit. Never thought Brooklyn Decker was pretty.

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Not a huge fan of her cating but I like Cameron. It’s ok to say your butt gets nicer as you get older-bitch definitely works for it so I believe her!

  10. lucy2 says:

    I think Cam looks good, and younger than at the Met gala.

    Oh Elizabeth Banks, what happened? She wore great, off beat stuff for the Hunger Games, but this is a disaster.

  11. ladybert62 says:

    Cam looks good – I like her hair short – it shows off her pretty face and eyes. The outfit is OK – the other white outfit is good also. The third crazy outfit is well ….. crazy.

  12. says:

    Love that she stopped screwing up her face.
    Not loving the boring outfit or the armpit stain.

  13. AudreyS says:

    I really like Cam’s outfit. Very classic and she wears it well. But that whole “I love getting older” schtick is just a big lie! Given the men she’s been with lately, she has been coming across as incredibly insecure.

  14. Zelda says:

    You can very much tell that she has breast implants in the top photo.

  15. Shelly says:

    Cameron’s hair and face look really good!

  16. normades says:

    Chance Crawford looks like Jim Sturgess here.

  17. serena says:

    Elizabeth Banks dresses are hideous lately.

    Anyway I’m sick of seeing Cameron with super short boring dresses so might as well like this change.

  18. stephanie says:

    i think cam looks great.
    mostly b/c of her non-jacked face/ lack of orange tan. the outfit is casual/classy though I see the waitress-y point.

  19. Kara Ann says:

    I like what Cam had to say about aging. Maybe she just went through a struggle with it initially (might explain some questionable “romantic” choices) and has learned to accept and, yes, embrace it. Good for her!

    Elizabeth Banks looks perfect to me. I love all of the color she wears.

    I enjoy Chris Rock enormously. I’m worried about saying it here b/c I don’t want anyone to come in with a “…but did you know..” story about him. For me, funny goes a long way toward attractive so I find Rock attractive.

  20. Justine says:

    Diaz never looks good. Never.

  21. Ari says:

    I would rather keep my face intact than my body at this point. Yes, her body is banging but when that camera zooms in who the hell wants to see that melting wax!?

  22. Tara says:

    I like Cam’s waitress look much better than the hooker look she sports. LOVE Elizabeth Banks’ dress.

  23. Kiki says:

    What’s with the bangs, Brooklyn? Jeez, this girl never gets it right. The dress looks like a white sheet. This could work on someone with actual curves, like Sofia, or someone with no curves at all. But on her, it’s just another reason for me to complain about these models-wannabes.

  24. annaloo. says:

    I think Cameron has stopped busting out that MASSIVE huge goofy grin of hers at these photo ops, and her face (and whole demeanor) looks better for it.

  25. Kim says:

    Cameron looks somewhat casual but very classy as oppossed to Brooklyns outfit – yikes. That girl is fugly & cant dress for the life of her. Elizabeth is trying way to hard to be “fashionable” and the clothes are wearing her. She cant pull off these type of clothes.

  26. Jordan says:

    I don’t really like Cam’s outfit but it’s not horrible. Her face looks really nice though.

  27. lower-case deb says:

    i thought i saw it somewhere about stylists painstakingly choosing and discarding clothings left and right for this or that reason, including those that would show arm pit stains.
    it looked comical the way the whole documentary was shot. but now i get it.
    diaz should fire hers.

  28. salamanca says:

    Cameron haven’t looked that good for long time. All ladies are looking nice.
    And Rodrigo Santoro-mmmmm
