My, Miss Hannigan, how you have changed. Cameron Diaz tweeted a pic of herself in character for the “Annie” remake rocking big hoops, red lips and long, dark talons. IMHO, she’s a far cry from Carol Burnett’s boozy sultriness and bedraggled hairdo in the original movie and not necessarily in a good way. What do y’all think? [Twitter.com/CameronDiaz]
Today Cameron Diaz turns 41 — happy birthday C-Dawg! We’re not sure how we feel about her being cast as Miss Hanigan in the film remake of “Annie,” but we’ll always love her for her sperm-as-hair-gel turn in “Something About Mary.” To celebrate, we’ve got Cameron’s ten best looks. Take a peek through, and tell us which is your fave!
According to a “source” at The Sun, Gwyneth Paltrow has taken on the role of “life coach” for Cameron Diaz.
”Gwyneth’s sorted out everything from finances to hooking her up with her trainer. She has also forced her to swear off sex for a year, saying men distract her focus … ‘Gwyneth is a nurturer. Cameron is bummed about being single, so Gwyneth sees her as a project. She’s trying to set her up with guys!”
I know, I know, this probably isn’t true, but I died laughing imagining Gwyneth advising Cameron to stay celibate for a year. Awful advice. Unless, of course, that’s what Cameron wants. Personally, I’d want to kill a smug married friend who thought of me as her single “project” and instructed me not to have sex for a year. But that’s just me. [ONTD]
“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 … [Photo shoots are] 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?’ They’re like, ‘Today we’re not going to put anything other than bras and heels on you,’ 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.”
– Here’s Cameron Diaz in the UK’s Sunday Times making some … interesting … statements. I don’t disagree that some women do want to be objectified, some of the time, in certain settings. I’m okay being objectified by my lover in the bedroom, for example, when everyone knows what’s what. But I certainly don’t want to be objectified by catcallers on the street, or rapists, or sexist bosses, or other people in the position to harm me. And there’s probably a lot of women who don’t have “ideal” bodies — they’re obese, they’re disabled, whatever — who would just prefer to be treated respectfully by everyone for the first time instead of being “objectified.”
Maybe Diaz has been cosseted in the bubble of Hollywood for so long that she’s unaware that for the “regular” woman, sexuality is more than something a woman wields in a photoshoot and it’s not always empowering our lives for the better. It’s a little ignorant for Diaz to speak on behalf on all women … although I’m certainly happy for her that she feels this way. [Sunday Times UK via Dlisted]
