Having exhausted the conversation on pube lasering and now that she’s no spring chicken, Cameron Diaz has hit back at Hollywood’s crazy obsession with youth. Speaking to Oprah for her upcoming OWN special Cameron Diaz & Sharon Stone: Aging Gracefully, she talked about how women don’t let other women age gracefully.
“Women don’t allow other women to age gracefully, and we don’t give ourselves permission to age gracefully. And they’re trying. For me I feel like if I—it’s almost as if we have failed if we don’t remain 25 for the rest of our lives. Like we are failures. It’s a personal…failure. Like our fault that at 40 years old that I still don’t look like I’m 25.”
“Oh, I’m sorry. I apologize,” Diaz says, feigning indignance as the audience laughs and applauds. ”I wasn’t able to defy nature.”
That’s all I ever wanted. An apology from Cameron Diaz for looking the way she does. Was that so hard? Hopefully we can move on now.
