Cameron Diaz
, bless her ridiculous little heart, does this thing all the time where she says things and they just come out wrong, or weird, or somehow not OK. Remember earlier this year when she couldn't stop talking about relationships and how everyone else is doing them wrong? Not OK. She also said something, if you'll recall, about how all women feel attracted to another women at least once in their lives, and while that may or may not be true, this thing she said about the aftermath of that statement is most definitely not OK:

"I could not tell you if people were talking about it or not. I don't even pay attention. People will always speculate. People like scandal. They like to put a label on something that they don't understand. It makes them feel comfortable. 
Mostly they like to guess who it could be. Some media outlet called for a comment and they wanted to know whether I was with Drew [Barrymore]. Literally, I said, "That makes me want to vomit in my mouth.' That's like saying I'm having sex with my sister. Are you crazy? I wouldn't even ménage with her!"

While she does have a point -- being sexually attracted to your sister would be kind of gross -- she could have said it better than this. Because anything would be better than this. Imagine poor, lovely Drew Barrymore, what if she caught the part of this where the idea of being attracted to her made Cameron want to vomit? Imagine how oddly hurtful and insulting that would be. Once again, NOT OK.

Let's think a little harder next time, all right, Cameron? Maybe just a tiny bit? You can only go up from here, girl.
