Diaz, who turns 50 in August, said the focus on beauty in the entertainment industry felt toxic.
“You just start to pick yourself apart,” she said.
But her current attitude is more relaxed. Diaz joked she barely washes her face despite having “a billion products” in her home.
“Twice a month if I’m lucky, I’ll be like, ‘Oh, I better put this on. One time works, right?'” she said. “Is that all I have to do? I’m just not in that place right now like where I put any energy (into worrying about it).”
And she’s not judging those who are into it.
“Again, I just go back to the trap of it all, especially in our society like what we value, what we think is important,” Diaz said. “Look, if it’s important to you, that’s fine.”
Diaz, who began her career as a model and starred in multiple hit movies like “There’s Something About Mary,” is also a successful author and businesswoman. She said she can’t imagine returning to acting.
