Cameron Diaz Wages A One-Woman War Against Marriage

“I think a lot of people are married to people they’re not romantic with anymore. I just didn’t ever marry anybody that I then had to get divorced from. We break up. We move on.”

Cameron Diaz talks in the June issue of Elle UK about the concept of marriage, while promoting her new movie, “Bad Teacher,” which also happens to star her ex, Justin Timberlake. Cameron is starting to sound like a broken record when it comes to marriage. Back in June, she said she didn’t want to be with someone for 80 years, and preferred her relationships in five year increments.

Oh but that’s not all. After the jump, what Cameron has to say about marriage in the June issue of Maxim. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: When Breakups Get Ugly

I guess I was lucky: I made it to age 26 without any really messy breakups. Sure, there were breakups that I thought were bad at the time. In the moment, they all felt terrible.

My most recent breakup was messy and nasty from the get-go and I’m adamant now that we can’t be friends. I put that relationship behind me as much as I could. So I was totally unprepared this week when it once again got unexpectedly nasty. Keep reading »

What Is “The Smurfette Principle”?

Who do “Inception,” “Transformers” and “The Muppets” all have in common? I was scratching my head on that one. All three movies are examples of “the Smurfette principle,” explains Anita Sarkeesian of the blog Feminist Frequency. “The Smurfette principle” is a common trope in movies and TV shows that try to be palatable to male audiences by having an ensemble of nearly all male characters with one token female character, who is oftentimes uber-feminine (Miss Piggy) or super hot (Megan Fox) or otherwise unthreatening.
