I know it sometimes feels like Jennifer Aniston is the only one who gets called out for age-inappropriate dressing (to be fair, she’s 41 years old and she nearly flashed her vadge on a red carpet). So today I’d like to bring out another star who still thinks she can pull off clothing meant to be worn by teenagers… or even tweens, if your tween rolls in hot pants (I hope not). Here’s Cameron Diaz working on the LA set of Bad Teacher, that film that she’s doing with Justin Timberlake. Yes, this is a costume. But Cameron is a powerful enough actress where she could have gone to costuming and said, “You know what? I’m 37 years old and I don’t want to wear shorts that are cut up to my crack.”
I’m not saying that Cameron has a bad figure (ditto for Aniston). Cameron has a lovely, athletic, trim figure – she never looks too thin, and she always looks like she’s taking care of herself. She looks great for her age. I’m just saying that there’s something to be said for putting away the crack shorts when you’re no longer in your twenties. Here’s more from The Daily Mail, including Cameron saying that she wished she was curvier:
Motorists in Los Angeles could be forgiven doing a double take as they drove past a leggy blonde holding up a car wash sign yesterday. Because the woman wearing the cropped shirt and tiny denim hotpants was none other than Cameron Diaz.
The outfit highlighted the 37-yeear-old’s stunning figure and her wavy hair helped her look like a cross between Pamela Anderson and the Dukes Of Hazzard’s Daisy Duke. Cameron was parading her enviable figure, with legs that never end, as she filmed scenes for her new movie Bad Teacher.
However, the There’s Something About Mary actress recently criticised the movie industry for making skinny women seem like ‘the norm’.
Cameron, who insists she always wanted to be voluptuous instead of naturally thin, said: ‘We get ideals from images that we see and there certainly should be more responsibility put on those people who are putting those images out into the world. Let’s be a little bit more responsible to what’s realistic.’
Bad Teacher will see the reunion of Cameron and ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, who split three years ago but remain on good terms.
It tells the story of a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher, played by Cameron Diaz, who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague.
While many reports have claimed Justin’s girlfriend Jessica Biel is jealous about the singer working with his ex-girlfriend, Jessica recently insisted she is completely happy about the situation, insisting she is ‘super excited’ for her boyfriend.
She said: ‘I haven’t read the script, but I think it sounds fantastic. It sounds like it will be so funny. Obviously, I’m super excited for him.’

If Cameron was curvier, this outfit would be obscene on many levels. But I do like what she said, and I honestly think her figure is a result of eating well and exercise and a crazy awesome metabolism (lucky bitch). And I would kill for her legs. Jesus. So I understand why the director wanted her in booty shorts, I just don’t understand why Cameron okayed the costume. I also don’t understand why she wanted to work with Justin Timberlake – he’s a horrible actor, and the sex probably wasn’t that great, you know? I want Cameron to find someone really great, not some douchey kid like Justin.
