Cameron Diaz Says 'Every Woman Does Want to Be Objectified' (VIDEO)
Cameron Diaz knows how to ruffle a few feathers. The Bad Teacher star gave a frank interview to the U.K.'s Sunday Times where she called a recent photo shoot of herself in a bra and panties "empowering."
Not only did the 40-year-old stand by her decision to strip down in November's Esquire UK, shot by Terry Richardson, but she said that she thinks women of all ages and sizes enjoy being appreciated for their physical attributes.
"I think every woman does want to be objectified," she said.
"There's a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it's healthy."
Diaz added that not only is she comfortable in her own skin, but that nudity is a part of her femininity.
"I'm a woman, I know how to handle myself. I know what I feel comfortable doing, and I know my sexuality," she told the paper.
“Getting older is the best part of life,” Diaz said. “I feel better at 40 than I did at 25.”
And with age also comes wisdom: “I know more than I’ve ever known,” she added.“I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever.”
