Cameron Diaz Shares Her Views On Living & Looking Healthy In Her New Body Book

While the world only saw a sizzling hot it-girl when Cameron Diaz broke into the Hollywood scene in the early ‘90s, she now reveals to Access that her lifestyle choices were wreaking havoc on her body. Now, the star is sharing her holistic approach to nutrition and fitness in her first book, “The Body Book.”

When I was growing up, I was made fun of like ever other kid. I was the skinny kid. I got made fun of for being skinny. When I got to my 20s everybody said you're so lucky you're so skinny. You can eat whatever you want. And, you know, I said oh, sure I'm so lucky I can eat whatever I want. Except for what I was eating was a bunch of crap and it was making my skin really bad. Hi really bad acne through all of my 20s. While the world only saw a sizzling hot it girl when she broke into the scene in the early '90s. Behind the scene, her choices were wreaking havoc on her body. I used to be a bean burritos and coke. I lived off of that. And a lot of other junk that really didn't -- you know, that was making me sick. I was literally sick. My emergency was bad. My skin was terrible. And it wasn't until I was -- I did "Charlie's angels" and I was forced to use my body in a way for the first time I never had and be connected to it. I realized how powerful and capable it was. Cameron is now sharing her look at nutrition and fitness in "The body book." We were by her side as she signed copies for not only women but men and children too. Clearly at 41, Cameron's body is fit and strong. It's thanks in part to good genes and aging gracefully without any surgery or injectables like botox. I feel like sometimes when I see young women, like wl young women in their 20s and 30s who are doing, you know, botox or things, it looks like you're older than you are. Because to me only older women ever did that to their face.
