Cameron Diaz: “I had terrible, terrible, skin”

January 10, 2014 in Cameron Diaz by Versus


On how an unhealthy diet affected her looks:

“I mean, I had terrible, terrible, skin. It was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away. I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication: oral, topical, even the harshest prescriptions. Nothing helped for very long. It was really challenging to cover them up for the cameras. It was awkward and embarrassing and frustrating, and I always felt really bad about myself.”

“(At that time) I was eating a cheeseburger with french fries every day. Once I started eating better, a funny thing happened … my skin began to clear up! My acne wasn’t totally gone, but it was significantly better.”

“Looking back, I realize that I hadn’t needed those prescription drugs, those vials of potions and creams. I hadn’t needed to be angry at my skin or feel bad about myself. I had just needed to LISTEN TO MY BODY. … acne was my body’s alarm system, it was mew ay of telling me [to stop eating fast food].”

… says Cameron.
