Quotables: Cameron Diaz Continues Sharing Her Special Kind of Ignorance

“I don’t know if anyone is really naturally monogamous. 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. A lot of people chase after it because they’ve been told, ‘This equals happiness. They chase it, they get it and then they find out, ‘Why did I think this was going to make me happy? I’m miserable.'"

--Cameron Diaz explains why you are not happy if you are in a committed relationship. Thanks, Cameron!

You know, Cameron Diaz has been making these broad, sweeping statements about relationships and society and pubic hair for what feels like a good long while now, and really, it's getting old. Because yes, Cameron, it's fine if someone doesn't want to be in a monogamous relationship. Great. But there's a way to say that without saying that everyone who does seek a monogamous relationship is wrong, or, sorry, "miserable." And let's not forget that in a lot of relationships -- maybe even most! -- feelings are at least somewhat involved, so falling back on animal instincts is a little insulting as well.

Basically, this is a great big fail. Thought you could do better, Cameron. But I guess I thought way too wrong.

She is it's like Gwyneth Paltrow and thinks WAY TOO MUCH of her own opinions. She is ridiculous and nasty.

There are plenty of animals that are monogamous, so she's just silly.
