Cameron Diaz: “Women Want to be Objectified”

Cameron Diaz: “Women Want to be Objectified”
Entertainment

The common thinking is that objectifying women is, well, bad. Not so, says Cameron Diaz.

“I think every woman does want to be objectified,” she tells The Sunday Times. “There’s a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think its healthy.”

That thought process helps her survive in an industry that places so much emphasis on appearance. Especially when she has to vamp it up in photo spreads and nude scenes.

“It’s empowering,” she says. “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.’”

For Diaz, it really comes down to her knowing what’s acceptable and what isn’t. Allowing herself to be objectified, but not the point where she can’t control it.

“I’m a woman, I know how to handle myself,” she says. “I know what I feel comfortable doing and I know my sexuality.”

Singularity At The Cinema: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Her’ And Fighting Against The Future

It’s essentially the last 20 minutes of “Her,” spread glacially over a two-hour-and-twenty-minute run time. The biggest problem with “Transcendence,” however, is that it foregrounds and obsesses over its technology at the […]
