Cameron Diaz is in the November issue of Esquire Magazine in a featured photoshoot, and she also has an interview to go along with the shoot. She talks about how she feels at 40 years old, on what she feels about marriage, and what she thinks about having children.
About turning 40, she says, “For the first time in my life I’m content,” she says on entering her fifth decade. “I’m so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I’ve ever known. I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever. And as far as the physicality of it – I feel better at 40 than I did at 25.”
On marriage, she says, “It just wasn’t the thing I was drawn to. I certainly didn’t want it in my 20s. Or my 30s.”
Finally, she talks about wanting to have children, saying, “I don’t need to have the children in my life be a part of my literal flesh. And anyway, there’s still a possibility of that, I ain’t that old. I’m feeling very… capable.”
Diaz is currently shooting Ridley Scott’s ‘The Counselor’, which also stars Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.
