Cameron Diaz: Marriage Is a Dying Institution

The Bad Teacher star reveals her recipe for a successful relationship -- and admits to a girl crush on Mila Kunis!

Famous bachelorette Cameron Diaz isn't ready to settle down yet. As a matter of fact, she thinks marriage itself may be obsolete -- a sentiment she expresses in a new interview in June's Maxim magazine.

When asked if she thinks marriage is a dying institution, the 38-year-old (who recently snagged the No. 4 spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list of sexy women), responds: "I do. I think we have to make our own rules. I don't think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don't suit our world any longer."

Diaz echoes that sentiment in a chat with the U.K. version of Elle, telling the magazine: "I think a lot of people are married to people that they're not romantic with any more. I just didn't ever marry anybody that I then had to get divorced from. We break up. We move on."

Currently dating Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, Diaz is notorious for having amicable splits with her exes, most notably Justin Timberlake, with whom she stars in the raunchy summer comedy Bad Teacher. When asked by Elle how it was working with Timberlake, she replies, "We're good at being funny together. We know how to do that. That's easy."

Describing her relationship with Rodriguez as "really awesome," Diaz tells Maxim her thoughts on the secret to a successful romance: "Guys need women who challenge them and don't let them get away with their sh**. Women, conversely, need to not be crazy bitches who blow up when their guys tell them something that scares them."

What else do men find sexy in a woman? Diaz, who has commented before that one of the keys to staying youthful is "lots of sex," says: "I don't find women who are looking for people's approval to be sexy. I mean, it's easy to seduce, but to be truly attractive, to bring people in and be sexy, I think that comes from the inside."

Based on those criteria, which women does Diaz find sexy? "Mila Kunis is a little hottie. Natalie Portman is amazing... and the Victoria's Secret girls!"
