Cameron talks about small independant films she
"I think that definitely your chances of coming across material in independent films--material that is more interesting and more challenging--is more likely than in big-studio films. You always have to leave your doors open to independent films so you have that opportunity."
Cameron Diaz talks about movie roles
"It's very easy once you play a sex symbol to go along and play every role that way. But I decided if I was going to be in this for the long haul and really get something out of acting, what I wanted out of it, I was going to have to make the decision of waiting to get a part that could show people I can do other things, see me in a different light. It was a definite conscious decision."
Cameron on acting
"Acting allows me to tell a lot of stories, you know start at the beginning, finish at the end, and tell everything in between. Modelling is just an image."
Cameron likes to read
"My favourite genre is the short story, and my favourite writers are probably Charles Bukowski and Raymond Carver. I love Bukowski's wildness, but something about Carver's prose, the simplicity of it, I find completely haunting."
Cameron's favourite kind of fast food
"French fries. I love them. Some people are chocolate and sweets people. I love French fries. That and caviar."
Cameron and Mariah Carey
"If you really want to torture me, sit me in a room strapped to a chair and put Mariah Carey's records on."
Cameron talking about shopping
"I can spend hours in a grocery store. I get so excited when I see food, I go crazy. I spend hours arranging my baskets so that everything fits in and nothing gets squashed. I'm really anal about it, actually."
Cameron as a 16 year old hollywood girl
"I was a tough kid with the jeans, the concert shirt with the flannel over it, the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair.Believe me, you can get into a lot of trouble being sixteen years old in a foreign country with no adult telling you when to come home." So the next five years were spent "Australia, Morocco, Paris, Mexico, here, there, everywhere," before settling in her Hollywood apartment with Carlos de La Torre, a video producer and her companion for five years.
Cameron on nudity
"I don't say that I won't do nudity for other people's benefit. It has nothing to do with other people's, it's just what I'm comfortable with. I can't say this enough, I'm totally comfortable with my body. I like my body, I don't think it's a bad thing, I think I have a nice body, I'm happy with it."
Cameron and new years resolution
"I'll stop smoking, I'll stop shopping and I'll wear a bra. People think I'm trying to make a fashion statement because I never wear a bra. It's really that I'm a tomboy at heart."
Cameron and her journals
"I write constantly, but only in my journals. I have three of them: one for travel, one for home, and one I write in before bed. But the last thing I want is other people reading it..... What's really fun is reading your journal, like a year later, or even a month, and realizing how much you've changed. You're looking at something you said, something you really meant at the time, and you're like, 'I can't believe I ever really believed that! I am such an asshole!' I think that's the greatest thing about growing up...."
Cameron talking about her first car
"It was the first year they made an automatic, so I learned how to drive on an automatic. It flew. I could get that thing up to 80 miles an hour in the fast lane. It was so big, no one wanted to drive near you, so it was always like, 'Get the fuck out of my way'."
Cameron's views about the media
"Sometimes I enjoy talking, but when it's like people are trying to find something out about me, I don't. If we are just sitting having a conversation, being real human beings with one another it is just fantastic. I try to keep my life out of it, not giving it away. I don't volunteer a lot of information."
Cameron's idea of a perfect evening
"Being around people who make me laugh, eating good food and I guess that's pretty much it. Or doing something I've never done before. If someone's around me who can suggest something I've never done before, then let's do it. Pretty boring, huh?"
Cameron's male views
"Most men are the same. They're only interested in fucking you and they don't care whether you're happy or sad. They just want to get on with their business in and out of bed, and they make you feel that you don't count except as their sex toy."
Cameron and her cat
"After a hard days work, it's nice to go back to the trailer and see him sitting there waiting for me."
Cameron on movies and their content
"There are scripts I've read where I really like the character but there might be some content that I'm uneasy with. You have to make the decision whether you want to put that out there. But I feel that's different from the media. We're not selling that for real. This is a movie, this is just a story we're making up, we're not glorifying a real incident. The news.... They pick the most obscene things to tell the public about and then at the end of it, they're like, 'And today, a litter of puppies was found', You know fuck you."
