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

This isn’t anything new! Cam has always had a great bod. I can only hope I look like her when I’m 37!

Angella on

Is it me or does she look like she hasn’t eaten in years!!!!!!!! Poor thing looks like she is staving!!

Melissa on

To Angella: Actually this is the heaviest I’ve seen Cameron look in years. She looks really good – but she’s definitely starting to look a little thicker – especially around the midsection.

lola on

Justin should try getting back with her they look good as a couple than, the other girl his, with now.

ARE you crazy!!! Justin and Jessica are way better than Justin and Cameron. I love Cameron, but she needs someone her own age…settle down already girl!

amle on

too bad she looks to be hit in the face with a mac truck

vanessa on

The fact that Melissa said that she is “looking thicker” around the midsection makes me sick. If that is thick, then there is no hope for anyone this side of an eating disorder!

Stephen on

You look real good I can’t wait to see you in the new movie

ellen on

looks more like “Casper” Diaz and what “thickness” around the mid-section that could be a protrusion of an organ she’s so thin. Ms. Diaz has looked far better like in Charlies Angels. Healthy and hot on her surf board. Eat something and a Little bit of sun gives you the vitamin D we all need.

Andrea on

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

Shannon on

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!

Barbara on

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.

Dawn on

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.

Jessica on

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.. :)

daniela on

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

Love the picture, Cameron looks great!

Lynn on

I think Cameron looks fantastic!! Her body looks great & so does she! The negative comments are not necessary!

cb on

I dont think she is pretty at all – body is slamming though

Shalini on

To Melissa – WOW, you think that’s thick around the waist. I’m sorry but she looks fabulous. I think she has alot of room to gain more. Bravo C.D. GORGEOUS!!!!!

Laura on

Wow 1-She doesn’t look skinny OR thick… apparently people haven’t followed her throughout her career… from the first day she showed up in Hollywood, she’s always been very slender. She goes through stages where she’s more toned and where she’s just in shape… this is a picture of her more toned where her stomach looks ‘thicker’ because it’s muscles are very defined, instead of just having a flat stomach.

Way to advocate skin cancer too, by saying she’s too pale… who cares, there are tons of women who are out there that are pale, and she looks GORGEOUS!

And for the record, Justin lost out… Cameron seems a thousand times more fun and outgoing than the boring, blah Jessica Biel.

Sarah on

Yeah, if I didn’t have to work 40 hours a week, I could probably commit myself to at least 2 hours in the gym a day as well. I wish that could be my job.

B on

She has always been thin. Some people are just built that way. I think she looks great!!

And to Amle – She has a very nice face. She does NOT look like she got hit by a truck. That’s so mean! I feel that may be jealousy talking.

Sonia on

I think she’s beautiful! She always looks gorgeous!

jENN on

Lookin really good, Cameron! I can’t imagine the Coulda shoulda woulda’s running through Justin’s mind! Ignore the haters! They SUCK!

Chelu on

She defenitely looks alot like Gwen Stefani with da harido, shape, glasses and style. Don’t matter they’re both really HOT!!!!!

She is not too thin! I’m guessng the women who claim she is are not thin themselves and are bashing her to feel better about themselves. I think she looks great! And no, Sarah, you don’t have to workout 2 hours a day to look like that. You’re just making excuses.

Declei on

Cameron are great and alson!!!!! She is very, very, beautiful!!!!

vanessa on

No she doesn’t look fat but her lower midsection looks kinda lose because i’m thinking she tried to lose weight rapidly fast just doing cardio exercise instead of doing vigorous ab muscle crunches. I know this because I had the same thing happen to me. No worries though if she keeps this weight it’ll soon slim down.

Cameron, sorry girl, I do not think you have aged that well. Just because you have long legs does not mean they are great looking.
