While it might be easy to become complacent once you are on the Hollywood A-list and just stick to an audience-loved pattern, Cameron Diaz is seizing the opportunity to do something totally different — playing a mother in the heartbreaking My Sister’s Keeper. But it’s not like she’s lost her sex appeal in the process! V Magazine caught up with the 36-year old star for an edgy and tough black-and-white photo shoot that recalls Madonna’s iconic True Blue period. Taking the look one step further — the star was painted with an array of wild tattoos on set (no, they aren’t real!) and wore a bra made of gaffers tape, fashioned by the shoot’s stylist. Of feeling and looking so comfortable in her skin, Diaz tells V Magazine that “I’m not going to be the 23-year old ingenue again. If I tried to hold onto that, I’d be a pretty unhappy individual.” We think Cameron keeps getting better — and hotter! — with age. Pick up the “Beauty Issue” of V Magazine for the full interview with Cameron, on newsstands July 7.

EEWWWW!! She looks way older than her 36 years. And the comment above is right-she looks like Courtney Love-EWWWWW!!! Why after looking at these pictures would she let them be published??

Love Cameron, and she’s a true artist,actress,model, and good american woman. She does what she wants and unique characters and looks r n the job description.

Stars need to have fun at photo shoots as well. I think she looks *FUN* painted on tattoos…and being a little *stranger* than real life. Some celebrities would do the photo shoot~and you KNOW it’s THEM reality-wise. This shoot was FUN for Cameron…so go for it girl!

I liked it.
I liked it because its like nothing she’s done before. Looks like she had fun doing the shoot. Thumbs UP!!!!

Those fake tattoos are like adding a rainbow or a kitty into the picture – they make them totally un-fierce and she just looks dumb. I would like these pics more if there were no fake tattoos.
Tattoos are only tough and ballsy if the person actually GETS THEM!
