Poor Cameron Diaz. The leggy blond told movies.com that her last few years have been "hell" and "so hard," and describes the prejudice that exists against pretty people.
On the past few years: "The last couple of years were hell. Like, I can't even tell you, it was so hard. I didn't know how to handle it. But I think I'm in a much better place now, because I stepped away for a second and took a breath. Hollywood is a funny place. It offers so much, but it can also take a lot away from you."
On pretty prejudice: "If a woman who's a successful actress weighs 300 pounds and has warts, nobody ever asks her, 'Do you think you made it because you're ugly?' So why should there be prejudice against someone who's had some success in films and looks a little better than average. It's all in my genes, so don't hold it against me."
On surfing in Hawaii: "I was just there doing a lot of surfing. I love it. It's definitely a spiritual experience, the closest you can get to Mother Nature, which is God to me. You get to ride all this energy that's traveled across the ocean for thousands of miles, and you get to usher this distant traveler to its destination on the shore."
