Calling Cameron Diaz just a celebrity is selling her way too short. I mean, lumping her in with the likes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and that Spencer Pratt guy, is just wrong. Yes, she is part of the Hollywood buzzing engine, and yes, she is the highest paid actress in town, but she doesn’t act like it. She acts more like a Green Peace volunteer than a super celeb. When the magazine Marie Claire, asked Cameron to be their Cover Girl for the upcoming July issue, she turned the tables and asked them to come along with her as she filmed a documentary about what people are willing to do to save themselves, the planet and just maybe our future.
As Cameron hit the streets to talk with the average person, she quickly came to some sad conclusions, we really might just be screwed. “I want to leave you with this thought,” Diaz says to the woman. “After all you’ve told me . . . what would it take for you to do something to change your environment?” The woman, speechless, looks like she’s going to cry.
“I’m sad,” Diaz says later, in the car on the way to a Mexican joint for dinner. “It’s just sad.” She drains a plastic water bottle and tosses it on the floor of the car. “And I’m unhappy about the waste I just produced.” Diaz and Dylan, sitting next to her in the backseat, conclude that we as a people are summarily, environmentally “fucked.” In fact, that quickly becomes the leitmotif of the trip, and it cracks them up every time. Diaz, out of the blue: “You know what we are?” Dylan: “Let me guess—fucked?” More after the jump.
Cameron Diaz is one of those Actresses, who just makes you feel happy. Maybe it’s because she always seems to be in the best mood. She lives in some magical happy place. I wish I could bottle her happiness and spray it on all the grumpy people of the world. Would that be great. So, you have to ask yourself, what makes this woman so happy? She isn’t married to Brad Pitt, she doesn’t have an Oscar and she isn’t married to Brad Pitt. Well, I think I now know the answer, she is living “G”! In the video above, she is on location in Palm Desert California, modeling for a new Vogue cover and she tells the camera guy, how green she really is. How she loves green fashion and her life. Check it out and if one of you out there, know Cameron, tell her to give us a call or email. We would love to make her a G Living cover girl. Are you reading this CAA?
Or is she? The actress goes on to say that, without realizing it, she was “already practicing the basics, everything from recycling to composting to saving energy to hybrid cars. I had been pursuing those things myself without knowing that they were part of the movement.” And now that she knows, she’s not ready to quit: “I don’t want to be running around barefoot, pushing my car like Barney Rubble. I don’t want to go back to the Stone Age. I just want to maintain what we have for a long period of time — forever. How nice would that be?”
