Actress Cameron Diaz is clarifying reports suggesting she doesn't believe in monogamy, insisting remarks she made in a recent magazine interview were taken out of context. The Charlie's Angels star, 41, recently hit headlines for her unconventional thoughts on romantic relationships after telling InStyle she didn't think people were "really naturally monogamous".
She added, "We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it's been ingrained in us to do these things."
But Diaz, who has previously dated actor Jared Leto, singer Justin Timberlake and baseball star Alex Rodriguez, claims she was referring to the mindset of her character in new movie The Other Woman, in which she plays a woman who discovers her married lover has been cheating on her with another mistress.
Clearing up the rumours, she says, "That's not what I said. My character says she doesn't believe in monogamy...! I believe in monogamy. That is an important part of a successful relationship...
"I have had (monogamous relationships). And, by the way, also, not all relationships end because people get cheated on or people cheat. Relationships end because they end for whatever reason, but they are still successful relationships that have been monogamous for however long they've lasted."
Actress Cameron Diaz cannot wait to meet her best pal Drew Barrymore's newborn daughter so she can play a prank on the baby. The Mask star reveals she will be paying the new mum a visit this weekend (26-27Apr14) to introduce herself to Barrymore's second daughter, Frankie, who was born on Tuesday (22Apr14).
She tells U.S. talk show host Jimmy Fallon, "We have a baby girl! I'm very excited. I'm gonna go home this weekend, I'm gonna meet her right away. Little Frankie! So cute! I can't wait. I feel like I know her already!"
But cheeky Diaz admits she is planning to play a joke on the tot if Frankie falls asleep in her presence - just like she did to Fallon's baby girl Winnie at a party last year (13), when she stuck the then-six-week-old's hand into warm water as she slept, prompting her to urinate in her diaper.
The actress exclaimed, "She (Frankie) is gonna get initiated!", before defending her prank on baby Winnie, stating, "She fell asleep first, that's what happens when you fall asleep at a party!"
Fallon is good friends with both Diaz and Barrymore - his wife Nancy Juvonen is Barrymore's producing partner.
Cameron Diaz showed off her 'twerking' skills during an appearance on America's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (23Apr14) when she danced with an actor dressed in a panda costume. The sporty actress also took part in a fun game of "rollergolf", as she raced host Jimmy Fallon around the studio to complete a mini golf course on rollerskates.
Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton were forced to stop skinny dipping together in between takes on new movie The Other Woman after paparazzi discovered their secret dipping spot.
The actresses went for a nude swim together while filming in the Bahamas, and they had so much fun splashing around naked it was decided they should make it a daily thing. But they had to cover up when photographers turned up on the beach.
Upton tells Live! with Kelly and Michael, "We went skinny dipping in the Bahamas... The next day they (paparazzi) came and we had to stop, which was a real joy kill (sic)." But the sexy supermodel-turned-actress insists she will be swimming naked again, adding, "Skinny dipping is the best thing ever, why wouldn't we go skinny dipping?"
"I don't believe in antiperspirant. It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years. You're stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in." Cameron Diaz urges fans to ditch the deodorant.
Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi will compose the score of a new TV series. The Icelandic rocker and artist Alex Somers have been recruited to create a soundtrack for Manhattan, a drama focusing on the 1940s race to build an atomic bomb.
This is the first small screen project for Jonsi, who previously served as composer for Cameron Crowe's 2011 film We Bought a Zoo, a score which Somers produced.
Jonsi and Somers have been collaborating since 2003, and are best known for their side project Riceboy Sleeps.
Actress Drew Barrymore has given birth to her second child. The Charlie's Angels star and her husband Will Kopelman welcomed a daughter, a sibling for 19-month-old Olive, on Tuesday (22Apr14).
A statement issued to People.com reads: "Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman. Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!"
The couple wed in 2012 and celebrated the tot's impending birth on 12 April (14) with a baby shower attended by pals including Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon.
"It's exhausting to try to be taken seriously, but I'm willing to commit to that. I'm willing to fight." Kate Upton has spoken out about her struggle to land acting roles because of her catwalk background.
Actress Cameron Diaz has opened up about her family's financial struggles when she was a child, insisting the experience taught her to be sensible with her wealth later in life. The Charlie's Angels star was raised in Long Beach, California with her elder sister and her parents, and was taught the importance of hard work early in life as her family was far from wealthy.
However, Diaz insists her thrifty upbringing did not prevent her having a happy childhood, telling Britain's Stella magazine, "I had amazing parents, they were awesome. We weren't privileged - very much the opposite. My family would collect (soda) cans to turn in for extra money, because $20 (£12.50) meant something to us. But we were very happy."
Her experiences as a child also helped her avoid the lavish spending many other A-list stars are famous for, as she only spends her money on things that matter, saying, "I come from a frugal upbringing so I'm not just going to throw my money away. I love to be close to my family and friends, so I spend money on plane tickets, having feasts, buying a ton of groceries and cooking, or going out for an amazing meal, knowing I don't worry about how much the bill costs."
Leading authors Sir Terry Pratchett and Philip Pullman are among the notable figures who have signed an open letter to U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron in protest after the politician branded Britain a "Christian country". Cameron hit the headlines earlier this month (Apr14) when he insisted Britain should "more confident" about its status as a country with a deep Christian history ahead of the Easter celebrations over the weekend (19-20Apr14).
Some critics dismissed the statement as a vote-winning ploy, and now a list of leading academics and writers have spoken out against his claims, insisting the comments have "negative consequences" for the country.
In the open letter, Pratchett, Pullman, performer Tim Minchin and many others have accused the British leader of fuelling "alienation and division in our society".
The missive adds: "Britain has been shaped for the better by many pre-Christian, non-Christian, and post-Christian forces. We are a plural society with citizens with a range of perspectives, and we are a largely non-religious society."
