In an upcoming OWN special, Cameron Diaz is continuing to promote her new project, The Body Book and in an interview rather than discuss below the belt maintenance as is her wont, she dishes on what it is like to age gracefully, without the use of plastic surgery. Cameron is likely speaking from experience as just a few years ago she was criticized for being overly familiar with Botox.
Over the years, it has been suspected that 41-year old Cameron Diaz has tried Botox, as on several occasions she has been photographed with a very smooth, taut, shiny forehead that has given her a somewhat odd look. In the book, Cameron admits that she did use Botox injections and she didn’t like the results either, calling her own face “weird.”
“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,” she added to ET online, via The Mirror Online.
Since trying Botox and disliking the results, Diaz seems to have decided to accept what aging naturally looks like.
“I love it, 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 said.
In the upcoming OWN special, Cameron reiterates her stance on Botox and plastic surgery and says that women put too much pressure on themselves to look young.
“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,” Cameron says, as the audience laughs and applauds. ”I wasn’t able to defy nature.”
Cameron seems to be reconciled to the aging process after having tried to fight it with things like Botox in the past. At one point her face was so smooth and shiny that rumors were flying around that the actress had undergone a facelift, but given that she no longer appears to have a very tightly pulled face and she has stopped using Botox, it seems likely that she didn’t go under the knife, but simply over did the wrinkle removing injectable.
Thus far, it seems that the only plastic surgery Cameron has had are nose jobs, which she has said were necessary to do various injuries that caused her to nose to break. It has also been rumored that Cameron has had breast implants as her chest appeared fuller for a while, especially in bikini tops.
