Having not been terribly relevant for a while now, Cameron Diaz has recently made headlines by objectifying herself—in an interview in which she discusses how women enjoy objectifying themselves.
Are you listening ladies? Because I’m not sure if you’re all aware, but you enjoy taking your clothes off to be ogled by strangers.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, Diaz said:
“I think every woman does want to be objectified. There’s a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it’s healthy.”
Perhaps women do enjoy being aesthetically pleasing. But I’m not sure that wanting to look attractive and wanting to be perceived as a jizz receptacle are the same thing.
Then again, this type of thinking is coming from a woman who once got paid to spray compressed air on her boobs. And no, it wasn’t for a movie role. Check it out.
She’s not exactly known for her acting abilities, so perhaps “objectification” and “career” are synonymous in her world.
Diaz says she finds taking off her clothes for a photo shoot or movie to be “empowering.”
“I’m not some young girl with the photographer going, ‘Will you take your clothes off?’ I’m like [mimes stripping], ‘How does this look?’”
I’m not even sure what any of that means, but it really doesn’t matter. Inanimate objects don’t have to make sense.
“They’re like, ‘Today we’re not going to put anything other than bras and heels on you,’” Diaz continues, “and I’m like, ‘These heels are not high enough.’ I’m a woman; I know how to handle myself. I know what I feel comfortable doing and I know my sexuality.”
Cameron hasn’t been in anything within the past few months that involves taking off her clothes, so we basically forgot she existed. So perhaps this is her way of staying relevant. However, she did make headlines earlier this month for supposedly flirting with Robert Pattinson.
According to US Weekly, Diaz and Pattinson shared a cozy dinner in Los Angeles in late October.
“She was pretty obvious,” a source said. “Cam was seated next to Rob at dinner. She was touching his arm, doing her big Cameron laugh at everything he said and trying really hard.”
So was the then-heartbroken Rob buying what Diaz was selling?
“He was polite, but not having it,” the source continued.
Damn. Can’t even nab a dude for revenge sex. Some object.
