The star joked that she hardly washes her face let alone being bothered by her looks.
Since taking a step back from Hollywood, Cameron Diaz has been less focused on her appearance. "I don't care. Literally, the last thing I think about on a daily basis, like maybe not at all during the day, is what I look like," she said during Michelle Visage's Rule Breakers podcast.
Diaz, who remains as stunning as ever, explained how the entertainment industry's focus on beauty has been toxic for her. "You just start to pick yourself apart," she expressed, according to CNN. That being said, the attitude Diaz has right now is much more relaxed as she jokingly revealed how she barely washes her face despite owning "a billion products."

"Twice a month if I'm lucky, I'll be like, 'Oh, I better put this on. One time works, right?'" she hilariously noted. "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)." While Diaz, who turns 50 in August, is in a much better place because of it, she doesn't judge anyone who is into the whole skincare, beauty industry.
"Again, I just go back to the trap of it all, especially in our society like what we value, what we think is important. Look, if it's important to you, that's fine," clarified the Knight and Day actress. Diaz seems to have a long way after kick-starting her career as a model. She then went on to star in many movies like There's Something About Mary, Bad Teacher, The Mask, and The Holiday to name a few.
Diaz is a successful businesswoman and author who simply cannot imagine returning to the acting industry after announcing her retirement in 2018. During an interview on Kevin Hart's Peacock talk show, Hart to Heart, Diaz revealed why she walked away from the spotlight. "For me, I just really wanted to make my life manageable by me. My routine in a day is literally what I can manage to do by myself," she said.
At one point, some parts of her life were "handed off to other people" as she continued climbing the ladder to success. But when she hit 40, she realized there were "so many parts of my life... that I wasn't touching and that I wasn't managing," Diaz told Hart. Her last movie was the remake of Annie that came out in 2014, according to Insider. Shortly after this, she decided to change the course of her life as she married the lead guitarist of Good Charlotte, Benji Madden, in 2015. In 2019, they welcomed their daughter Reddix. "I feel whole," she expressed.
