Cameron Diaz Doesn’t Actually Care About Your Pubic Hair

cameron diaz

Cameron Diaz recently released The Body Book, in which she encouraged women not to permanently remove the hair on their vaginas as it’s there for a reason and helps men feel like they’re opening a present when they go down on you or something. It was all fine and well, though some people – like myself – wondered why she didn’t just say that her personal preference is for a ’70s style bush, but all women should feel empowered enough to do with their pubic hair whatever makes them feel most comfortable.

Turns out, that is what she meant after all – she doesn’t mind what anyone does below the belt, she just wanted to encourage a dialogue that challenges the status quo (which tells women that hairless = better).

From Metro:

“I didn’t say what I prefer, I just said pubic hair has a purpose. You can do what you want with it, I don’t care – you can shave it off every day, wax it off every day, turn it into a bonsai – I don’t care.”

“I just said consider maybe not removing it permanently and forever with laser treatment. Forever is forever and when we make those choices for our body we have to live with them forever.”

If nothing else, it’s good at this book of Cameron’s – though certainly nothing mindblowing in the grand scheme of women’s liberation or anything of the sort (not that it’s aiming to be – is starting a bit of a dialogue. This book is literally getting SO MUCH PRESS, as are the topics she covers within it. I’m sure this is largely due to the fact that she’s Cameron Diaz, of course, but at least she’s putting it to decent use.

Have any of you ladies read this thing yet, or do you plan to?

Cameron Diaz: ‘My vagina can be unwrapped like a gift’

body book

I mean, look – ladies should feel free to do whatever they want when it comes to pubic hair. The world is your oyster – pun… sorta intended, I suppose – and you certainly don’t have to wax everything off or get fancy shapes going or whatever. However, that’s a personal decision that should remain with you, your sexual partners and perhaps your friends if that’s something you deem suitable for conversation. It doesn’t belong in celebrity “health” book, but Cameron Diaz clearly didn’t get the memo.

From The Body Book (via The Mirror):

“I hear that there’s a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits,” Diaz writes.

“Personally, I think permanent laser hair removal sounds like a crazy idea. Forever? I know you may think you’ll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won’t. The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change, people.”

“Pubic hair also serves as a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness. Pubes keep the goods private, which can entice a lover to come and take a closer look at what you have to offer. Also, let’s be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity.”

“Do you really want a hairless vagina for the rest of your life? It’s a personal decision, but I’m just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies. Twenty years from now, you will still want to be presenting it to someone special, and it would be nice to let him or her unwrap it like the gift that it is.”

There are so many things wrong with this, I can’t even get started. From the fact that this is in a book that’s been publicly released to the idea that CAMERON DIAZ thinks she knows what’s best for the female body to the awful analogy of “unwrapping” your vagina like a present, to the bullshit idea that “gravity” would make your vagina “less attractive” so your partner so you need to hide it with a patch of hair… girl, no. Add this misguided bullshit to the chapter about her acne and hoo boy, we’re in for it.

On the other hand, it’s hilarious that Cameron went on a rant about this in her “body book”. If this excerpt is anything to go by, I bet it’s hilarious.

Cameron Diaz Gets Honest About Her Bad Skin

Cameron+Diaz+Annie

Cameron Diaz is currently ruining the remake of Annie but also found time to contribute to a book about health, called The Body Book. In it, she’s very honest about her struggles with her bad acne problem. Here’s what she says about it, plus the solution she found, via Radar:

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.

I [used to] eat a cheeseburger with french fries every day. [But once I stopped] 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].

Okay, see, I always thought that greasy fast food causing acne was a rumor. You know, Gwyneth talk. But hey, if she says this works, then good for her!

Anyone here suffer from acne? What do you do to treat it?
