Cameron's Short-Shorts Secret? Hard Work

03/30/2010 at 12:00 PM ET


Sure, even her trainer Teddy Bass admits Cameron Diaz is a “genetic wonder,” but that doesn’t mean the 37-year-old actress can slack off on her workouts. For her role as a Daisy-Dukes wearing professor in the new movie Bad Teacher, Diaz maintained a rigorous workout regimen. “Cameron has an amazing work ethic both in work and personally in life as a whole,” says Bass. “She works so hard.” And how hard is hard for the perfectly toned star? With her “schedule permitting,” the actress hits the gym with Bass for regular sessions of weights for strength training including lots of lunges and squats, mixed in with cardio circuits and Pilates work. Her “desired look,” according to Bass? “Elongated” and toned muscles — a goal she’s clearly achieved. Adds Bass: “That photo doesn’t lie or hide anything!” –Charlotte Triggs

I think her body looks great. Jessica will probably be on that set every day!

Angella…She isnt starving, she takes care of her body. Your statement is no different than assuming every fat beast you meet is a glutton. Poor thing?? No, hot thing!

Poor thing? That is crazy!! Her body looks great. I worked out for 26 years, my only advise is to slow down when you get older. Lunges are really bad for you and so is pushing too hard, like I did. I never had a trainer or listened to my body. But there are so many real anorexic “stars” and I don’t think Cameron is one and if that’s thinck around the middle, it isn’t necessary to have a 6 pack. Though I won’t be seeing the movie, she does looks great.

I am sorry, I don’t get it. I love Cam and all, I mean she is such a goof ball, who doesn’t love that? But she is straight up and down, she has no ass at all, no waist, she isn’t much shaplier than a young boy. She is tight but then again she hasn’t given birth, but I bet she would still be tight if she did, I think a lot of it is genetics. I do love her and wish her all the best!!! Just had to say it.

Ummmm– I totally agree with you ‘Dawn’.. she is a lil wrinkly, always has been and her body is not all that great.. A real man wants some thickness and a lil more meat on the bone.. Sorry Cameron that is probably why you still dont have one….. lol
and those of you who think she is lil thick around the waste!! what tha?? we must be looking at 2 totally different pics.. :)

Dawn, you said exactly what I was thinking! I think the last time I thought she was smokin’ hot was in The Mask, but ever since then she’s lost weight and all of her curves. :(

andie on

Maybe it should have been added that it doesn’t look like she eats much either!

Jon on
