Cameron Diaz banishes tube tops from post-40 wardrobe

Cameron Diaz has to work harder to maintain her figure now she's passed her milestone birthday.

Actress Cameron Diaz has hung up her tube tops for good now she's in her 40s.

The Charlie's Angels star was a big fan of the stomach-baring attire earlier on in her career, but she would never consider donning the garment nowadays as she is a firm believer in dressing your age.

"I'm definitely not doing tube tops. No way," the 43-year-old told the American edition of Harper's Bazaar when asked if there was anything she refused to wear.

"But everybody's age is different, and by that I mean that even when you're a certain age, it's all a matter of how you present yourself, how old your spirit is, and where you are in your life," she explained. "Some 50-year-olds are still 35. It's about expression and what they can pull off."

The process of ageing is something which has captivated Cameron, and led her to write her second tome, The Longevity Book.

While the star still looks fantastic for her age, she admitted she now has to work a lot harder to maintain her slender figure than she did in her 20s and 30s.

"As you get older, your body changes in so many little ways," she said. "It doesn't react the same way that it used to. I don't get the results that I used to as easily as I once did. Now I look at myself and I realise, 'Oh, right. I'm in this time now in my life where I have to be thoughtful. If I slack off, things don't come back so easily. I have to be committed.'

"But just like everybody else, I'm more and less disciplined at various times based on what's going on in my life."
