Cameron Diaz Talks Getting Older and The Longevity Book


In the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar (on newsstands May 24), Cameron Diaz, chats about the joys of marriage, banishing tube tops and her latest project, The Longevity Book. Check out the highlights below:

Her belief on dressing your age:
“Everybody’s age is different and by that I mean that even when you’re a certain age, it’s all a matter of how you present yourself, how old your spirit is, and where you are in your life. Some 50 year olds are still 35. It’s about expression and what they can pull off.”

On the clothing item she will never wear at her age, 43 (or ever):
“I’m definitely not doing tube tops. No way.”

On her biggest realization after turning 40:
“That as you get older your body changes in so many little ways. It doesn’t react the same way it used to I don’t get the results that I used to as easily as I once did…In part that’s what my new book, The Longevity Book, is about. But just like everyone else, I’m more and less disciplined at various times based on what’s going on in my life.”

On the older women she most admires:
“Gloria Steinem is one of the greatest feminist examples of a woman doing it her way. Jane Fonda has also always been somebody who puts herself out there in a very honest way. I appreciate that. We have so many great examples in Hollywood, from Meryl Streep to Helen Mirren. They walk such a fine line between giving everybody what they want and not sacrificing themselves for it.”
