Cameron Diaz is still a “14-year-old boy” at heart.
Although her life is now completely different, the Knight and Day actress – who shot to fame at the age of 21 when she starred alongside Jim Carrey in The Mask – insists deep down she is still the same person she used to be.
“I’ve certainly grown up. I’m much more mature than I used to be,” she said. ”I’m still a 14-year-old boy at heart but my life is totally different to how it was when I was 27.”
The blonde beauty – who has just finished filming Bad Teacher alongside ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake – believes the people who act like “a**holes” when they become famous aren’t necessarily changing, but have always been that way.
“I think what happens in Hollywood is that people don’t change much. I feel like people become more who they really are. That’s what fame does – it will only bring out in you what is truly within you,” she explained. ”So when you see people acting like a**holes, they really are a**holes!”
She then offered some more words of wisdom.
“Two things happen when you become famous. One: every door is open to you, so it is your choice to know what your boundary is. Two: you have to be accountable for what you do. You either live right morally in this business or you don’t.”
