  • Here's what Cameron Diaz had to say about the awkward side of a woman's beauty regime. Seriously...

    Cameron Diaz has been offering up some interesting anecdotes during the promotion of her new health and fitness book.

    But is there any awkward subject the Hollywood starlet is too scared to approach?

    In her latest interview on the American Dr. Oz talk show, Cameron Diaz didn’t shy away from a segment on bowel movements. Uh, yeah.

    In fact, the Charlie’s Angels actress was more than happy to share actual details of her routine: ‘This is the best way for me to go poop in the morning.

    ‘First, I brush my teeth because I don’t want to swallow all the bacteria in my teeth from the night before. So I make sure that’s gone and then…’ she paused, thankfully, before gulping down an entire litre of water. In ONE go.

    Diaz is equally up-front in her new health and fitness book, The Body Book, with a no-fear approach to talking about the not-so-glamorous side of her bathroom regime.

    In one part of her guide to healthy holistic living, she writes: ‘Let’s talk about poop, baby! Yes, you heard me right. Listen, it’s a natural and necessary part of being human. Now I know that some people don’t like talking about their bowel movements but here’s why I’m talking about it: because your poop is a key indicator of your overall health.’

    Cameron Diaz’s comments on body hair, particularly in the downstairs lady department, also made headlines recently.

    An entire section of her new book is dedicated to her preferences on pubic hair. ‘I didn’t say what I prefer, I just said pubic hair has a purpose,’ she told the Metro. ‘You can do what you want with it, 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.’

    And all this is just one of the things we’ve learnt to love about Cameron Diaz after reading her new book.
