Cameron Diaz turned her back on beauty standards and ‘never washes her face’

She was once a Hollywood ‘it’ girl but after Cameron Diaz left the glitz and glamor of celebrity life nearly a decade ago, she also ditched societal beauty standards.

The 49-year-old revealed that she rarely thinks about her appearance anymore and ‘never’ washes her face – despite owning a ‘billion’ personal care products.

Diaz opened up about how freeing her life is now that she is out of the limelight in a new interview with RuPaul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage on her new BBC podcast Rule Breakers.

Cameron called the allure of Hollywood ‘such a trap’ which she escaped following her marriage to Benji Madden in 2015.

‘Again, I just go back to the trap of it all, especially in our society, like what we value, what we think is important,’ she told Michelle. ‘Look. if it’s important to you, that’s fine.’

Diaz has reportedly turned down nearly $100million in film offers since her exit from the A-list but doesn’t appear to have any regrets.

‘I am absolutely a victim to all of the societal objectifications and exploitations that women are subjected to,’ she said. ‘I have bought into all of them myself at certain times.

'I don't care,' Cameron quipped to Michelle Visage (pictured).  'Literally the last thing I think about on a daily basis...like maybe not at all during the day, is what I look like.  No, no, I literally do nothing.  I like never wash my face.'

‘It’s hard not to, it’s hard not to look at yourself and judge yourself against other markers of beauty, and I think that’s one of the biggest things, the last eight years girl – I’m like wild, I’m like a wild animal, I’m a beast.’

One unexpected positive is being able to put less emphasis if any on her appearance these days.

‘I don’t care,’ Cameron quipped. ‘Literally the last thing I think about on a daily basis…like maybe not at all during the day, is what I look like.

‘No, no, I literally do nothing. I like never wash my face,’ she continued, adding that she has ‘a billion products’ basically collecting dust on the shelves.

‘Twice a month if I’m lucky, I’ll be like “Oh, I better put this on. One time works, right?” Like is that all I have to do? I’m just not in that place right now like where I put any energy,’ Cameron revealed.

Her priority now, as she prepares to turn 50 is to ‘stay strong.’ The Holiday star was the very first guest on Michelle’s brand new podcast.

‘Join me as I speak to the people who changed the direction of their lives by marching to the beat of their own drum! My first guest on this International Women’s Day is so fitting…. It is the amazing, hilarious and beautiful inside and out,’ the reality star penned on social media.

Despite no longer acting, Diaz is still very much working and has a successful wine label, Avaline.

‘Twice a month if I’m lucky, I’ll be like “Oh, I better put this on. One time works, right?” Like is that all I have to do? I’m just not in that place right now like where I put any energy,’ Cameron revealed.

She recently shared a ‘love yourself’ video where she lit a Goop Hands Off My Vagina candle next to a bottle of her beverage.

The business owner posted, ‘Clean, delicious wine and Goop’s vagina candle — the *perfect* gifts for anyone you love (including yourself) And the best part, Goop will donate $35 from the sale of each ‘Hands Off My Vagina’ to benefit the ACLU Foundation’s Reproductive Freedom Project. Cheers to that!’

The Something About Mary star launched Avaline with friend and partner Katherine Power in July 2020. The wine is made with organic grapes, free from added sugars and colors, and it’s vegan friendly.

The vintner also released a second Instagram video promoting Avaline’s subscription service.

Diaz’s last role on the big screen was in the 2014 film adaptation of Annie, in which she played the horrible Miss Hannigan, who was fond of the wine, while making life miserable for the orphans in her care.

Since then, she’s been focusing on family and entrepreneurial endeavors.
