Cameron Diaz is a well recognized face in the world of Hollywood. In the recent past, the actress has disclosed so many things about the cine world that endured misogyny for years. After having it for so many years, the actress has opened up about everything her fans would like to know.

Diaz is known for some of her memorable roles in films like ‘There’s Something About Mary’, ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ and ‘The Mask’. Due to years of humiliations and misogyny that she had to feel in Hollywood, the actress shad no choice but to say goodbye to the cine world in the year 2014.

While narrating her perspective towards what she had to bear in Hollywood, Cameron Diaz said that it was just a normal aspect of what the industry behaved between the years 1990s and 2000s.

This is what she stated, “I certainly didn’t do as much as could be done now because of the awareness of everybody, you know, sort of like the #MeToo,” Diaz said during host and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” judge Michelle Visage’s ‘Rule Breakers’ podcast on International Women’s Day.

She further added, “There were still parameters. The 1990s, the early aughts, there was still heavy, heavy misogyny. Just the level of exploitation of powers, it just laid on the entire industry. It was the normal thing to do sort of like (laugh) and just be able to get through unscathed.”

Cameron Diaz who’s also recognized as the The ‘Charlie’s Angels star also stated that her choice of roles were simply not enough for her to go ahead with the double standards of the Hollywood industry. According to her, things are quite different in the present age.

This is what Diaz recalled, “Be the one who participated enough to make everybody feel taken care of but not to be a victim in that position. To know how to navigate the whole thing because it was happening all day, every day in every little feeling of layers of existence,” the actress recalled.

Cameron Diaz who has turned 49 also spoke about her very own decision to say goodbye from all the limelight after the film ‘Annie’.

Diaz finally added, “Fame is very infantilizing. It’s very much about keeping somebody coddled in a state. I just go back to the trap of it all, especially in our society, like what we value, what we think is important. I am absolutely a victim to all of the societal objectifications and exploitations that women are subjected to. I have bought into all of them myself at certain times,” the actress added.
