Diaz: Women don't understand themselves

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz thinks it's "f**ked up" how competitive women are.

The actress stars in The Other Woman, in which her character teams up with her lover's wife to seek revenge when she finds out he's married.

She acknowledges how competitive females can be and believes it's simply because they're unsure.

"It's so f**ked up, the whole things is ridiculous, but it comes from not understanding ourselves," she explained to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"But that's life, that's the journey of life. Especially in a western society, we are not taught how to be connected to our inner selves to honour ourselves. And so we are working our entire lives trying to figure out who we are, what makes us happy, we live our lives looking at all these other things, going, 'Oh, if I pick that, that and that, then that will make me happy and I'll be a whole person.' You need to be going within yourself and asking yourself, 'What makes me happy, what do I do, how do I become whole?'"

In the past, 41-year-old Cameron has enjoyed romances with Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto.

She's currently single and admits that she hasn't always had the best judgement when it comes to relationships.

"I am human and I have gone down the wrong roads, and I have gone down some pretty good roads and I have taken the high and I have taken the low," she mused.

"It's life, that's what life is all about; it's about learning your lessons."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Your home life is undergoing big changes. Youngsters may decide the time is right to fly the nest. An elderly relative may come to live with you. You might move in with a loving partner. Whatever form this new situation takes, it will be empowering. You'll get help that was previously unavailable. If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
