People: Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden are talking about marriage already

Cameron Diaz

I’m not sure how many people will care about this story since it doesn’t involve Cameron Diaz acting rude to fans. You can see the difference in Cameron in these pictures of her with Benji Madden on a yacht in Sardinia. Cameron looks genuinely happy whereas she usually looks smug.

Cami and Benji have been dating since May. He’s definitely not her typical boyfriend. Cameron is used to long-term relationships with douchey types — A-Rod, Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto, and Matt Dillon — who probably didn’t keep it in their pants. All public accounts say that Benji is the nicest guy ever. His personal style is questionable, and I find these photos hilarious. He’s still wearing his black leather vest and backwards baseball cap on a yacht.

The tabloids have already had a field day with this romance. Star said Cami really wanted to get pregnant with Benji, but that was a made-up story. Cami has repeatedly said that she doesn’t want kids of her own. People (a publicist’s best friend) has a more believable story coming down the pike. They say that Cameron and Benji are talking marriage. The story will be in this week’s print issue. Yeah, someone’s publicist totally okayed this one:

An unlikely couple? Perhaps. But Cameron Diaz, 41, and Benji Madden sure are lucky in love after finding each other earlier this spring.

And things have gotten serious — fast. “It’s early, but they have talked about marriage,” says an insider.

While home in Los Angeles, the duo have been nearly inseparable. “Benji spends so much time at Cameron’s that it seems he now kind of lives there,” says another source. “They look very happy together … Cameron hasn’t looked this happy for years.”

Last week, the pair took their romance to a new level on a romantic European getaway, sailing along the French and Italian coasts aboard the $633,000-per-week, three-story Lady Britt mega yacht, with friends in tow.

What do you think? I think Cameron’s personality may benefit from being with a guy who isn’t constantly omitting eau de douche vibes. Maybe Benji’s nice-guy persona will rub off on her. She was even papped hugging crew members on the yacht. Anything is possible.

    I want this to happen.

    • Gea says:

      Hmmm Cameron Diaz is getting married? I have a hard time believing that.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        I thought she wasn’t interested in marriage…? But I could be wrong. And maybe if Benji IS interested then she’ll give it a go.

    • MCraw says:

      She deserves happiness. I always felt sorry for her after seeing her feed A-rod popcorn on national tv- the Super Bowl! She seemed so into him and he was so obviously not into her. Hope Benji can make it happen.

      • Gea says:

        I agree , she deserve happiness like we all do. But, somehow she chooses guys who are not mature enough or just in at for a play. I don’t know so much about Benji…

  2. LizLemonGotMarried says:

    Are there a lot of public stories about Cam being an a-hole? I mean, she dated ARod and Justin Timberlake, so there’s definitely something off, but I thought it was that her douche-meter was broken, not her being actively an a-hole.

    • cat says:

      I agree. I haven’t read everything about her but I’d never heard that or gotten that sense about her either.

    • JH says:

      She used to workout at the gym I worked at and she was always super nice (also no entourage unlike other celebs).

      • LizLemonGotMarried says:

        Oh, yay! I always wanted her to be like this cool, goofy person IRL. Maybe because she has been one of the few actresses who feels no need to give lip-service to the kids & white picket fence lifestyle. (Nothing wrong with the lifestyle, as I have a literal white picket fence, but if you don’t want it, you need to be able to say it without fear. *cough* JA *cough*.)

    • Skittles4Marshawn says:

      Yeah, I’ve only heard anecdotes about her being really nice IRL. And she’s always cultivated an image of being fun and carefree.

      Who really knows why she dated douches, but my theory is that it’s a little easier to deal with a douche if marriage isn’t on the radar. She’d never seemed particularly interested in marriage, so maybe it was okay if her boyfriends weren’t perfect gentlemen. Priorities change though, especially if you’ve met a dude you like who wants different things in life.

  3. Kiddo says:

    How can we know if she’s really having a good time if she isn’t play karate kicking?

  4. Lexie says:

    Looks like his yachting cap says “Supreme Money Cash Hos.” Yeeaaah, I just couldn’t.

  5. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I don’t get his appeal but she looks really happy so meh.
    Mazel Tov I guess?

  6. Sumodo1 says:

    I wonder who picked up the check? Madden’s net worth is $16m, and hers is $90m.

  7. Emily says:

    I don’t know what it is about the two of them together, but it just seems right? No matter how “opposite” they truly are, they seem like they make a good pair.

  8. Fannie says:

    The backwards hat + sunglasses and leather vest on a boat are giving off douche vibes, no?

    • Belle Epoch says:

      FANNIE I’m with you. He must be psychologically attached to that vest to the point he can’t remove it even while on a boat in full sunlight getting wet! It’s like his security blanket. I’d be mortified if I had a bf who showed up looking like that.

  9. JustCurious says:

    I don’t know how i feel about this couple…When i first saw these photos i started looking for Nicole Richie.

    Out off topic, i am new to this site and i LOVE it but i have noticed that every time i visit it,the order of the articles is different or appear new articles between or below the ones that i have already readed…Is this happening to anyone else?

    • Nanea says:

      The order of articles is a mix that depends on views/replies and time published – I think…

  10. Jayna says:

    Anyone who believes she is talking marriage this soon in is an idiot. It’s Cammie, guys. Come on.

    I find his body repulsive with a thousand and one tattoos when I saw him at the beach with her. I don’t get her attraction to Benji, who I do think is handsome facewise. But I just love skin and the body, and when it’s completely covered by tats to the degree he is it takes away from what I find sexy. Joel never went as far overboard with his tats and he still looks hot to me.

  11. JenniferJustice says:

    I wish anybody happiness, but doesn’t it grind anybody besides me that if this is true (marriage talk) all her previous discredit of marriage was such BS! All she’s ever had to say about marriage is how she doesn’t want it, doesn’t need it, all it is is a peice of paper that doesn’t mean anything, blah blah blah. If she wants to get married, more power to her and I hope if they do, that they last, but people who have never been married need to stop trying to downplay it. Just like everything else, if you have never done it, you shouldn’t speak on it because you don’t know what you’re talking about.

  12. kri says:

    I do not get him at all. However, given some of the true jerks she has been with, maybe that’s the appeal-that he is really nice. I hadn’t heard he was a good guy-I just thought he was kind of “washed-up rock guy”. Eh, all the mazels and tovs to em.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I’d be surprised if she got married, but you never know. If they’re happy, good for them.

    That yacht is bonkers.

  14. maria says:

    this, kids, is what desperation looks like.

  15. TheRealMaya says:

    Seriously Huvana really needs to change his pr games/strategies. This is what he does for every single of his female CAA clients – from Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea Handler, Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron etc.

  16. evadstructn says:

    I’m surprised she hasn’t given him a makeover yet

  17. Camille (The Original) says:

    Weird looking couple.

  18. Denise says:

    Oh boy. She looks so happy but she’s got her arm around him in lots of photos and he doesn’t. Just like with A-Rod. That does not bode well.
