Cameron Diaz reportedly believes everyone has been cheated on or will be cheated on in their relationship. Diaz, who is embracing being single, might be the voice of many women around the world today who are enjoying not being in a relationship, but are not supposed to say it out loud. Women are taught from the time they are little girls that one day they will marry their prince to live happily ever after. Diaz believes a prince is not required to have a “happily ever after. “
The 41-year-old recently promoted a new comedy titled The Other Woman about a woman who discovers her boyfriend is actually married. Though adultery and deception are absolutely nothing to laugh at, Diaz may have drawn a message from the film as well as personal experiences. The strikingly beautiful actress has been romantically linked to Matt Dillon, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake, Chris Angel, John Mayer, Paul Sculfor and Alex Rodriguez so no one can say the actress has not invested in love. While maintaining a fabulous career in Hollywood with such box office hits as Any Given Sunday, There’s Something About Mary, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Vanilla Sky, and the list continues, Diaz apparently believes in love while enjoying her freedom and the fruits of her labor.
Whether any of her high-profile relationships ended due to a cheating heart, the public may never know. Diaz, however, proclaims with passion, as if she has lived it many times over, that anyone who says that they have never been cheated on just do not know they were cheated on. Talk show host Wendy Williams has made jokes geared at Diaz and single women over the age of 35 who are not rushing into marriage, stating that they are making excuses for not having a boyfriend in their life.
Williams, who often paints her marriage and family life to be something single women should aspire to, was exposed recently by Evelyn Lozada of the Basketball Wives. Lozada, who Williams took a few jabs at on her talk show, retaliated by tweeting to over a million followers that Williams’ husband is an adulterer. Lozada went into detail about Williams’ husband allegedly purchasing boots in Miami from Lozada’s shoe store for his mistress. Unlike Lozada, Diaz has not responded to Williams’ attacks on her relationship status, but she stands firm in her belief that cheating is just something that is real and occurs at some point in a person’s life.
Believing that humans will be humans whether they are married or not, Diaz apparently is convinced. No one knows if this is a concept she bought into due to her upcoming film The Other Woman or if it is based on her past loves. Many couples are in disagreement with this theory and would probably love to sit Diaz down for coffee to reprogram her thinking with some lines from Scriptures. As in the case of Wendy Williams, would they be trying to convince Diaz or themselves?
While momentarily single, Diaz is quite possibly living her “happily ever after” in the here and now. But, unfortunately, Diaz is not allowed to celebrate her happiness, because single people over the age of 35 are not supposed to be happy.
