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.
