Cameron Diaz: “Every Woman Does Want to Be Objectified” — Do You Agree?
We love you, Cam, so don't make us stop loving you!
Cameron Diaz recently turned 40 and she's been talking a lot about loving the aging process, etc. But in a new interview with the Sunday Times, she goes a little further down the body image road.
"I think every woman does want to be objectified," Cameron said (via The Insider). "There's a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it’s healthy. 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.'"
So it's another argument for sexualization as empowerment. Sigh. If that's how she feels, go for it. But she probably shouldn't speak for women as a group since a lot of ladies have been working a long time to change the idea that women should be objects for viewing pleasure. Don't send out a personal message and say it's from all of us, Cam!
