“For me, the vagina is such an integral part of the body…We think the vagina is on the outside. I say grab a mirror and play along. Get in there…You’re supposed to treat it like the beautiful flower that is, the delicate flower that it is. And you’re supposed to nurture it in all the ways that it needs nurturing…[You should be] watering it. Fertilizing it. It needs nourishment. It’s hungry.”
Cameron Diaz shares more tips from The Body Book on “Chelsea Lately.” At least she’s not going on about her love of pubes anymore. But the “delicate flower” metaphor is a little twee for me. Vaginas need showers and sex, not water and fertilizer. It’s nice that she’s written a handy guide to understanding the female body, but I’m wondering who’s reading this and having, like, major revelations about her vagina? [ONTD]
When Cameron Diaz came out against laser hair removal and waxing pubic hair, I thought she was drawing attention to her new book, The Body Book, and pube talk would disappear in a 24-hour news cycle. She called a lady’s bush “a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness” and warned laser fans that “all fads change, people.” It seemed like brain junk food — celebrity + sexy body part = pageviews! Instead, she seems to have incited a domino effect.
We’re only three weeks into January and here is most of the press coverage pubic hair has gotten this year. UK’s Guardian declared 2014 “the year of the bush.” Then an American Apparel store mannequin had pubic hair peeking out of her undies. YourTango wrote that pubes are “making a comeback.” The Wire declared “The Pubic Hair Renaissance Is Here.” Dame Magazine quipped “more and more women are letting their gardens grow.” Gaby Hoffmann’s character sprouted an enormous bush on the most recent episode of “Girls.” And now the fashion blog Styleite has an interview with a gynecologist about “the health benefits of bush.”
The tone of most of this coverage is a new twist in the fad of public hair styling: women who keep their pubes intact, or are “pro-bush.” What’s next, being “pro-eyelashes”? “Pro-elbows”? Keep reading »
Did you hear? Cameron Diaz is now a published author! The actress released her first book, a health guide called The Body Book, on December 31. I have no idea what Cam’s thoughts are on healthy living and if you had asked me if I cared, oh, yesterday, I would have yawned and told you no. But then I read that Diaz has an essay in The Body Book called “In Praise of Pubes,” and I was like, “Cameron Diaz, how did you know I can’t resist reading a celeb’s views on short-and-curlies?” According to Radar Online, Cameron has much to say about pubic hair, namely that she thinks going permanently hairless down there via laser treatments is a bad idea.

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!
