Quotables: It's So Nice When People Have Their Crap Together

"I don't want to look like I did when I was 25. I like the way that I look now better than when I was 25. I can't help that other people may be uncomfortable with that, but that's not my responsibility to make them feel okay with the fact that I'm getting older. I'm okay with it. I like it. ... There's no such thing as anti-aging. There's no such thing as turning back the hands of time, and it makes me crazy that we live in a society where that's sold to women – that we're supposed to believe that if we're getting older, we've failed somehow, that we have failed by not staying young. ... I wish that women would let other women age gracefully and allow them to get older and know that as we get older, we become wiser." 

--Cameron Diaz in a recent interview, and if you didn't think she was super smart and savvy before (I admittedly didn't, but we never do stop learning as long as we're open to learning, do we?), then these sage words should convince you otherwise. 

Cameron's got an amazing point -- why should we try to hang onto something that, while good, is in the past? Why not keep moving forward, even if we're losing skin elasticity as we're gaining important insight?

Such is the way of the world, friends, and even if you are the unfortunately great-looking Kris Jenner who's had (?) God knows what done to her body, firm breasts and line-free faces are just no substitute for good, old-fashioned self-awareness.

What does this have to do with Kris Jenner? You are just trying to start drama where there is none. Who cares what Kris has to say. Cameron said what she did and was not even thinking of the mother of a pornstar and former partner of a retired Olympian.

First of all I think Cameron Diaz is full of b.s. I'm sure she's had some plastic surgery done, & with her money it's easy to look great. As for Kris Jenner....She's had more plastic surgery done than most people in Hollywood, probably the only person who had more is Joan Rivers...These so-called stars are so full of it...

Finally someone famous says something substantive.

Pretty easy to say when you only have 2.5 crowsfeet. Let's talk again when she is turned down for rolls because gravity hit. Between good genes, healthy lifestyle, and expensive facials; many would look more natural. Digital is not their friend either......
