Cameron Diaz - Quotes
"Grease is the only cure for a hangover."
"Acting allows me to tell a lot of stories, you know start at the beginning, finish at the end, and tell everything in between. Modelling is just an image."
"I can spend hours in a grocery store. I get so excited when I see food, I go crazy. I spend hours arranging my baskets so that everything fits in and nothing gets squashed. I'm really anal about it, actually."
"French fries. I love them. Some people are chocolate and sweets people. I love French fries. That and caviar."
"I was a tough kid with the jeans, the concert shirt with the flannel over it, the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair."
"Growing up, I was the plain one. I had no style. I was the tough kid with the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair."
"I'd kiss a frog even if there was no promise of a Prince Charming popping out of it. I love frogs."
"Most men are the same. They're only interested in fucking you and they don't care whether you're happy or sad. They just want to get on with their business in and out of bed, and they make you feel that you don't count except as their sex toy."
"It's cute when you meet young boys and they're bright red and breathing like they've run up the stairs, but they're just sitting outside the door. I've had phone calls in the middle of the night when I stay at hotels."
"I'm a pretty girl who's a model who doesn't suck as an actress."
"I don't say that I won't do nudity for other people's benefit. It has nothing to do with other people's, it's just what I'm comfortable with. I can't say this enough, I'm totally comfortable with my body. I like my body, I don't think it's a bad thing, I think I have a nice body, I'm happy with it."
"After a hard days work, it's nice to go back to the trailer and see him [her cat] sitting there waiting for me."
"Your regrets aren't what you did, but what you didn't do. So I take every opportunity."
"I've banged my head quite a bit. I liked Iron Maiden, Ozzy, AC/DC. And of course, Ratt and Poison."
"If you really want to torture me, sit me in a room strapped to a chair and put Mariah Carey's records on."
