As she displays her long limbs in a plunging one-piece swimsuit, it’s hard to believe that Cameron Diaz is nearing the big 40, but the Hollywood beauty has proved age is only a number.
Her Californian-girl tan was off set against a sexy nude costume, which boasted fringing down her décolletage as the actress posed for the latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
And as she hit the headlines this week over allegedly splitting with her boyfriend of a year Alex Rodriguez, Diaz says that marriage hasn’t been important to her because it only limits ‘other possibilities’.
Despite being one of Hollywood’s most successful and beautiful actresses, she has openly spoken of her reluctance to settle down at 38-years-old.
Diaz, who has reportedly split from the New York Yankees baseball star, says: ‘Marriage hasn’t been important to me. I believe we are with who we’re supposed to be when we’re supposed to be with them.
‘If I try and lock something down, I miss out on all the possibilities of what it could be.’
And when it comes to children, she explained: ‘You can’t have a child just because you think it’s something you’re supposed to do.
‘It doesn’t make sense for everyone it’s not an absolute for me…. I don’t’ care what other people think. It’s my life; I live it the way I want to.’
A source told Perez Hilton’s website fitperez.com of Cameron and A-Rod, saying: ‘They’ve broken up. (Cameron is) hurt and betrayed, because she tried so hard to please him. She went overboard.’
But the star has yet to confirm speculation.
While promoting her upcoming film Bad Teacher, Cameron has also revealed how she feels about getting older and why she’s not interested in marriage.
She said: ‘You get better as you age. You know what you want and you become stronger, mentally and physically.
‘Things have happened recently that have pushed me to grow. My father died and going through that made me think about how I want to live my life.’
There’s no doubt that the star is physically fitter than we’ve ever seen her before and looks just as glamorous in her scruffy jeans and vests as in a designer bikini.
Cameron has always been a lithe lady, but over the past few years has developed into a full-blown fitness junkie without an ounce of fat on her.
She says that she’s always worked out but woke up one day and realised, ‘while I looked fine, eating the way I was didn’t make me feel fine. So, you know, I just stopped eating it.’
Her upcoming film Bad Teacher shows Diaz playing a teacher, who starts her own ‘new boobs’ fund after discovering that the object of her affections – a substitute teacher played by Justin Timberlake, is interested in women with considerably bigger assets than her own.
She says of the role: ‘C’mon, you don’t think there are teachers out there who get high at her school or want a boob job?
‘I was drawn to her because she’s real. She lives how she wants and doesn’t apologise for it. I liked that she isn’t a totally changed woman at the end of the film, because that’s just not realistic.’
Cameron’s full interview appears in the July issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale 5th July.
