Listen up, Cameron Diaz fans! The 37-year-old beauty is ready to spill the beans on her love life. In the July issue of Playboy the actress opens up about her relationship with Justin Timberlake, her attraction to women, and those rumors that she's making time with New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.
"No, no, no," Diaz said when asked if she and the ball player were dating. "I've been in relationships since I was 16 years old. In the past three years I’ve made a conscious decision not to be in a relationship for as long as I want. I've stayed away from all the traps out there for me to just fall into something that will potentially lead me down the same road ... I want to have a relationship with myself right now."
As for reuniting with ex Timberlake to film the romantic comedy Bad Teacher, Diaz says they had no trouble working together. "We're adults," she told the mag. "Of course, we could work together. It’s been three years since we broke up. It's all done ... We're friends; he's really talented and funny, and we're good at being funny together. A great dynamic we have is that we love laughing together...He's so hilarious."
When it comes to her love life, Diaz is willing to give most guys a shot. "I never shut down any man who’s willing to ask me out unless he’s a total douche bag," the Knight and Day star says. "It takes a lot for a guy to ask out a girl like me – not because I think I'm superspecial or anything. It’s just that I think men are intimidated, and it’s a lot to get involved with. It’s not uncomplicated."
She says she's "had really successful relationships, even though they’ve lasted only a certain amount of time. I’m okay with that. With some of the relationships that have drawn public interest, I feel as though I’ve evolved, learned and become better equipped. I don’t feel I need to make it different for the outside world that’s looking in and judging it.”
As for potential partners, Diaz says she's open to all possibilities. "Sexuality and love can be different things," she says. "I can be attracted to a woman sexually, but it doesn’t mean I want to be in love with a woman. If I’m going to be with a woman sexually, it doesn’t mean I’m a lesbian. We put these restraints and definitions on people, but it’s hard to define.”
