Favorite Quotes from Cameron Diaz

“Sexuality and love can be different things. I can be attracted to a woman sexually, but it doesn’t mean I want to be in love with a woman. If I’m going to be with a woman sexually, it doesn’t mean I’m a lesbian. We put these restraints and definitions on people, but it’s hard to define.” – Cameron Diaz 

“You shouldn’t hate another woman because she is beautiful and you shouldn’t hate yourself because another woman is beautiful. Like, that’s the trap that women fall into so much and they are like ”She is so beautiful I hate her”. I could never say something like that about another woman. I celebrate everyone’s beauty. Celebrate their beauty and celebrate your own, find the beauty in yourself.” – Cameron Diaz 

“I’m someone who loves to enjoy life and tries to focus on real things and real friendships. That’s why I live very simply. I’m a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. I don’t spend much time fixing myself up or trying to look cool. I live like a normal person and even though I’m in a very high-profile business, I really don’t let it affect the way I live.” – Cameron Diaz 

“My Latin roots are very strong. All my life, because I’m blonde and blue-eyed, people who aren’t Hispanic can’t believe I am. And people who are Hispanic always think I’m not because I don’t look like them. Being Latin is part of who I am and I bring that part to every role.” – Cameron Diaz 

“I am just at that stage of wondering where I go from here. I came into this business almost by accident, but now it has become serious. What started as a bit of fun, something to do other than be a model has taken on a different career curve. I have been forced to ask where that curve is going to end up.” – Cameron Diaz
