Cameron Diaz posts makeup free pic, promotes her new self help “Body Book”

E! Online points us to this flattering Instagram pic of Cameron Diaz, 41, without makeup and looking gorgeous. TIL: That Cameron Diaz is on Twitter.

Cameron is holding a copy of her first book, The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body. About a year and a half ago we heard she was working on this book, so she’s probably put some time and effort into it. The book is said to be focused on satiating hunger with nutrient rich foods and focusing on health, fitness and the science behind it, not thinness.

Cameron is super fit that’s for sure, but she’s claimed that she eats junk food and has a beer in the morning to cure hangovers. Maybe her old misconceptions make her more qualified to speak on these matters. It’s not like she’s only eating gluten-free vegan food or telling us to drink juice for a week to lose weight. She used to eat junk and she’s probably learned how poorly that made her feel. Cameron’s book is coming out December 31, just in time for New Year’s resolutions.

As for how she looks without makeup, she’s lovely. (Update: I forgot how she messed with her face a while back as MrsB commented because she looks so natural here. She must have stopped the injections after that.) I have light eyelashes and I don’t go out without mascara, so I’m jealous of everyone with darker eyelashes who can pull off the makeup free look. Kaiser is like that, she doesn’t need it. I’m not convinced that Cam is entirely makeup free here, though. (It’s not like she’s claiming to be, but E! is saying she is.) She may be doing that “tightliner” trick that gives a more natural look.

Here’s Cameron’s tweet that accompanied her Instagrammed photo, above. She may be one of the few celebrities who does Twitter right. She’s definitely got enthusiasm.


With Leslie Mann and Kate Upton (they’re costarring in the upcoming The Other Woman.)

    I think she looks adorable. She has the most amazing eyes-Siberian Husky blue.

  2. MrsB says:

    She looks great. For awhile there her face was looking pretty jacked up from whatever she was doing to it. Seems like she’s laid off of it thank goodness. Natural is better!

  3. Rhea says:

    I like that she seems clear about what type of life that she wants and mostly keeps her life private. She seems fun to be around. :)

  4. Aiobhan says:

    She really is a beautiful woman. I won’t be following her on twitter as I have found I need to keep the barrier up between me an celebs I like so that I am not too disappointed when they do and say something stupid.

    I may consider looking at her book when it comes out. I am slowly but surely trying to drag my behind to the gym and being a healthier person. Finding the right balance is tough between working out enough and eating properly-especially since I am an emotional eater who loves trying new things.

  5. Kiddo says:

    She looks good, but I’ve seen interviews with her, and she doesn’t come across as particularly articulate, so I can’t imagine purchasing the book. But good luck to her. I always had her pegged as a party girl, but maybe I was wrong or she has changed?

  6. annaloo. says:

    That last pic is so Carrie Bradshaw style that I am laughing. How the times change.

  7. V4Real says:

    I remember years ago when an interviewer was asking Cameron how does it feel to look like Cameron Diaz (of course hinting at how beautiful she was). Cameron’s reply was there are times when Cameron Diaz doesn’t look like Cameron Diaz. That seemed like such an honest answer. I always liked her. She’s such a guy kind of girl.

    • JALorden says:

      She also once said -

      “If a woman who’s a successful actress weighs 300 pounds and has warts, nobody ever asks her, ‘Do you think you made it because you’re ugly?’ So why should there be prejudice against someone who’s had some success in films and looks a little better than average. It’s all in my genes, so don’t hold it against me.” And “It’s like high school. We’re like the popular kids. Everybody wants to know what happens to us.”

      I don’t like her. She’s like a Mean Girl.

  8. mk says:

    Fabulous! What’s wrong with us ‘looking our age’ anyway? Shouldn’t our natural faces provide the guideline for what that actually means? Even tho’ she has a few more lines than the Goopster, her skin looks far healthier.

  9. Bree bree says:

    CB: I too have light lashes and just bought eyelash tint. It stung a little but it helps SO MUCH. Just sharing ahah

  10. Samtha says:

    The book sounds great–much better than the cut-out-everything-edible-and-eat-500-calories-a-day books out there.

    And she looks good.

  11. Sloane Wyatt says:

    Are you kidding me? Cameron Diaz has on foundation or a tinted moisturizer, eyebrow pencil or powder, mascara, and a tinted lip balm.

    Of course, she looks beautiful, in spite of not being too honest.

    • Ice Maiden says:

      Not only that, but even if she is 100% make-up free (which I doubt) this is a posed-for photograph, probably taken by a professional at a flattering angle and in a flattering light – however casual she may be trying to make it look. Also, she’s got styled hair and is smiling. When you see really unflattering make-up free photos of celebs on the web, often what is making them look bad isn’t the lack of make-up (which they’re often wearing in any case) but unstyled hair, unkempt clothes, harsh lighting and a humdrum expression, as well as the fact that they’re not expecting to be photographed. It’s easy to look good ‘make-up free’ when you’re ready for your close-up.

      • bondbabe says:

        Well, duh, she has styled hair and is smiling for a photo!! It didn’t say she just rolled out of bed and was grumpy.

        By your explanation, ALL makeup-free pictures should have you looking like a mad, grumpy troll.

      • Ice Maiden says:

        That’s kind of a harsh response. All I said was that typical ‘stars without make-up’ photos on gossip sites show the stars when they are unkempt, often slightly frazzled and caught unawares. None of which is the case in this photo, so it’s hardly a surprise if Cameron still looks good. And I never claimed that ANYONE looks like ” a mad, grumpy troll” so I find your post a bit of an overreaction.

  12. Dommy Dearest says:

    Does anyone remember what she looked like for the Mask? It was like right after that movie her looks changed. She was so pretty in that film.

  13. booboobird says:

    ok. does the adage about show me your friends and all that is not true here? her friend is Goop, for crying out loud! oh, maybe they will have a fallout now. which book is going to be a bigger bestseller etc etc.

  14. Not says:

    Fruit peels are no good for yo9ur the long run..I decline!

  15. Sumodo1 says:

    I see round cheek implants that look like they have slipped. Ooh, that must bother her.

  16. Lisa says:

    She’s pretty, but let’s be honest: Are these books anything more than a cash grab? I mean, nobody’s life has been turned around by a celebrity’s ghostwritten book about themselves, has it?

  17. BooBooLaRue says:

    Sorry but she looks rode hard and put away wet. Too much booze, smoking and sun gave her those lines on her face.

    • Becky1 says:

      She’s 41 and Caucasian-the same age and race I am. Most women in this age/race category (particularly those who are fair skinned, slender and facially expressive) have a few lines. I don’t think she looks old for her age-I think she looks her age. I don’t know any Caucasian woman past her late 30′s with no lines unless they’ve had Botox or are significantly overweight.

  18. wendy says:

    You can do eyelash tinting at home? Freaky!
    I thought you had to go to a pro to get that action done.
    Don’t think I would attempt it myself.

  19. Sloane Wyatt says:

    I’d love to see a poll of which eyelash dye works without side effects!

  20. S says:

    I think she looks gorgeous. I don’t really see why it’s that hard to believe she doesn’t have makeup on? Maybe she has a light tinted moisturizer or a bb cream to matte her face, but I hardly consider that makeup, or veering far away from going “natural”.

    Someone above complained that it was easy to look like this because she had good lighting, her hair was styled, and she was smiling so it shouldn’t be considered “natural”. Anyone sitting by a window can get good lighting light this… it doesn’t have to be taken by a professional. Her hair looks like it was probably just air dried from the shower, and definitely not styled. That’s what mine looks like when I let it air dry without heat styling it- a little messy and a little wavy. And why shouldn’t she smile? She’s holding her book! She’s known as a funny and happy actress. Instead of being easy to look like this because of tricks and professionals, I think it’s easy to look like this just because she’s actually really pretty.

    • bailey says:

      I don’t find her attractive even when she is all made up. Recently I saw her in the movie Mask on TV and she was very pretty, but I have never found her beautiful in other films, doesn’t matter what age. I don’t know what happened to her face, but something did after that movie Mask.

  21. Ginger says:

    I’ve never been super impressed with her acting but I’ve always given her credit for being one of the more “natural” actresses out there. I know she’s had some surgery but she doesn’t seem to go overboard with it, instead preferring a more natural look. What I see in the “makeup free” photo (being only 3 years older than she is) is that she probably has had Botox shots in her forehead but not the rest of the face, thus giving her a more natural rather than a waxy look. I have considered doing this for myself as well. You certainly cannot deny that she takes fitness rather seriously. It might be worth a look at her book just for that reason. I’ve always admired her for her sense of humor…I find it charming. However proud she is of this book she will have to work hard to make it stand out from the hundreds of other lifestyle books that celebrities produce.

  22. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    She looks like she’s going to be an awesome Miss Hannigan (sp??).

  23. JenniferJustice says:

    You all do realize she’s had work done, right? So, she gets no props from me. It’s fake. She was a tall thin gal with pretty eyes. Now, she looks stretched and glossy. She has never had a very good arse. It’s just the eyes. The eyes have it! Bwaahaaahaaa.

  24. Vivian says:

    Didnt she get breast implants shortly after filming Bad Teacher?

  25. Sam H x says:

    I think she looks great in the first picture regardless of whether she has make up on or not or even had any work done. Also, I agree that she looks just right for her age. She’s not the world’s best actress but she seems like she would be a blast to go out with and not as snoozeworthy as the goopster. I can’t help but like her.

  26. Mrs.Darcy says:

    I think she looks great, even if she is rocking a little Nanoblur or whatever, she looks human, she looks healthy and it’s a pretty smart bookselling trick. Just seeing her compared to Brandi Glanville’s maskface on the front page gives me motivation to resist the needle (I am fast coming up on 39 and won’t lie, the temptation is there).

  27. Jayna says:

    Why is her face so red in the first photo?

  28. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    CB – I have to say that I am envious of light blonde eyelashes. I always think it looks really amazing. Probably why I love Prince Harry and all the other ginger guys. My best friend is a redhead and she never believes me when I tell her that if I were her I’d never wear mascara! But it’s true. I have dark eyes etc so I guess we always want what we don’t have.

  29. Lotta says:

    The first picture is the best she ever looked.

  30. Dorothy says:

    She was so sweet pre-Gwyneth days when she hung out with Drew. I hope she talks about her horrible troubles with acne for decades and cops to all she has done to clear her skin. The only thing I do envy about these celebs is there is all this great medical non-invasive dermatological stuff out there – could make a baby rhino’s skin look like perfection! Prob is very expensive. So the celebs all get all this done, weekly facials, do have on makeup, just light etc. etc. and then flaunt their no makeup perfection – new pet peeve – I want it :-) but would own it and they (or GOOPS don’t anyway). Do hope Cam gets back to her senses soon – heard she is ditching Gwynie, that would help. So hope the book is honest and does help out some young girls.

  31. LilyT says:

    I’m a late poster, but speaking of lashes (if anyone sees this) any products out there actually work to promote lash growth? Mine are dark but thinnish…
