Cameron Diaz is currently promoting her new book, The Body Book. Last week we covered part of the book, you know, the chapter she wrote “in praise of” pubes. Today we’re hearing more from inside the book, more specifically how she feels about Botox.
I feel like I remember her Botox face. It looked….different. She looks beautiful these days, and you can tell she’s not injecting the poison anymore. Good for her. I can really appreciate women who let themselves age naturally (that we know of, anyway).
On Botox? “I’ve tried [Botox] before, where it was like [a] little tiny touch of something. It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to [be] like [that]. I’d rather see my face aging than a face that doesn’t belong to me at all.”
On her wrinkles: “I love [them,] I don’t mind. It’s like, ‘Guess what this means, I’ve smiled my whole life.’ I love life. I’m happy I don’t have a problem with that.”
She didn’t start exercising until her 20s: “It felt amazing. I watched my body transform over a week of intense training — some days doing upward of 1,500 to 2,000 kicks a day. Kicking, kicking, kicking for eight hours. All of a sudden I had six-pack abs. It was painful. I would not recommend that anyone blast their body like that. It was an intense, physical challenge. But it woke me up to my own body and what it was capable of.”
She loves working out: “I went to the gym this morning. I did cardio. I went on the elliptical for half an hour. Sometimes I do the treadmill. I do a mile as fast as I can go. … I don’t like to run too long because it can have an impact on my knees or joints. I’m more of a sprinter.” Part of the motivation for eating healthy and exercising regularly is thinking ahead to “my longevity,” she says. “I want to make sure I don’t get sick. If I’m blessed to get older, I want to make sure I can maintain quality of life.”
Her exercise4 tips: Movement can be done all of the time, and it should be:
* Do butt squeezes while you’re brushing your teeth.
* Do lunges while you’re waiting for the coffee to brew.
* Do calf raises while you’re waiting for the train.
* Run up the stairs. Run down the stairs.
* Stretch your calves on the stairs.
* Walk to the next bus stop. Or the next.
* Do sit-ups while dinner is in the oven.
* Stretch during the commercial breaks
