Cameron Diaz 'Praises Pubes' in New Book
"The Counselor" actress encourages women to embrace the bush down below in her new tome, "The Body Book."
Cameron Diaz, who recently bared it all in Ridley Scott's thriller The Counselor, isn't afraid to embrace the natural, especially when it comes to her own body.
In her new title, The Body Book, the 41-year-old actress pens an entire section devoted to the bikini line and its bushy state. Titled, "In Praise of Pubes," Diaz explains that women should embrace their pubic hair rather than undergo laser hair removal.
"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 in her book. "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."
While Diaz is now a self-professed fan of the bush, it doesn't seem as though she always felt that way. As Daily Mail pointed out, the Bad Teacher star encouraged an unnamed celebrity pal to trim her " '70s bush" during an interview with Irish talk show host Graham Norton in 2012.
Turns out that anonymous friend is actually Gwyneth Paltrow, she revealed on Ellen in April while talking about her provocative sheer dress at the Iron Man 3 premiere. During the interview, Paltrow told host Ellen DeGeneres: "I have a '70s vibe."
The Body Book, which also covers health and fitness, was released Dec. 31.
