Aging is never an easy thing to deal with but it sounds like Cameron Diaz is ready to fully embrace it!
The 43-year-old is promoting her new book The Longevity Book, and she recently sat down with Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop and dishes on a TON of topics!
Not only did the blonde beauty dish on her findings about aging, and her new outlook on accepting getting older, but she answered a ton of other questions too like her celebrity crush, her favorite movie, what her first job was, as well as her perfect Sunday afternoon!
Since Cameron’s book is all about the science of aging, the Shrek star dished about everything she learned from researching the subject as she talked about why people fear getting older:
“They don’t understand what it is├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣; we only know it from what we see on the surface, not on a cellular level. All aging is a result of our trillions of cells aging, and once you understand the science, it gets way less scary.”
Diaz also revealed the most surprising thing she learned about again:
├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣”That cells have their own sex├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥females have female cells, which are distinctly different from the male cells that males have, and they react completely differently from one another. And that the majority of medical research has been done on males, so most prescription pharmaceuticals are based on testing done on men.”
As for what the actress LOVES about aging? Well…
“├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣What I ├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣have to offer the people around me, the wisdom I have gained through the experiences I have had, and looking forward to all of the years I have ahead of me”
Apparently the celeb author is so excited about getting older than when she was asked what she’d put on a neon sign, she even said:
“Aging is living.”
Well we guess that’s better than “Nudes! Nudes! Nudes!” Lolz!
But the celeb author had more to offer than just talking about her book as she also revealed her celebrity crush is none other than Harrison Ford! On top of that, her favorite movie is Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Really? Not Raiders or The Last Crusade?!
Diaz went on to prove that though she’s famous, she’s still like anyone else as she revealed her first job was working at TCBY Frozen Yogurt├óΓé¼ΓÇ╣.
Though she may be famous, Cameron seems pretty down to earth as she revealed in her response to her perfect Sunday afternoon saying:
“Being surrounded by family and friends.”
What do you think of the actress’s newfound take on aging?!
