Cameron Diaz Signs Copies Of Her New Book “The Body Book”

Posted on January 07, 2014

Cammie’s all “HAAAAAAY, bitches.”

Cameron Diaz signs copies of her new book “The Body Book” at Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City.

“Check out my book and not my funky, washday sweater, okay? Okay!”

We can’t hate. She’s serving up real-girl semi-realness. It probably wouldn’t have worked if she showed up all movie star glamorous for something like this. Still, there’s a way to do casual, real-girl looks without looking like you’re on a liquor-buying errand, y’know? Keep everything but the hair and the sweater, we say. Although a pair of skinny jeans might solve a lot of problems too.

    I kind of like that she went for a big sweater rather than the skin-tight thing you’d expect with her book.

  • Ginger

    I adore Cameron Diaz for her fun demeanor, but I just have to laugh at a body book “written” by somebody who has a team of trainers at her disposal to keep her ass in shape on a daily basis.

    ETA: Let’s not forget hairstylists (who clearly took this day off), makeup artists and stylists.

    • A team of trainers and fantastic genes, it has to be said. My ass could never look like that no matter how many people helped me.

      • boweryboy

        A team of traniers, fantastic genes, and copious amounts of free time allowing her to spend 2-3 hours a day working out.

        • marlie

          A job where it’s, well YOUR JOB, to work with a trainer and spend 2-3 hours working out.

          • Adriana_Paula


    • twigg

      And if you notice, there’s a pretty big difference in the face on the cover and her actual face. So we can add photoshop and really great lighting to your list.

  • Diego!

    I’m sorry guys but someone needs to say it…. She is already too old for this look. Honey, where the heck is your make up? Where the heck has your hair dresser gone? WTF is that shirt and the gotta pee pose? No no no, I do love your boots though. Everything else must go or polished. It’s an OUT.

    • makeityourself

      Thank you for saying it.
      And let me add that I hate the shiny leggings.

      • Diego!

        I couldn’t agree more. 🙂

  • Glam Dixie

    That is some jacked up hair. Jesus, what was she thinking when she looked in the mirror?

    • YoungSally

      Based on what I read about a particular body part in the grooming section of the book — Cammie’s approach to hair is let it all grow wild as nature intended….

      • Sue Shea

        wow cameron diaz, tmi!

      • ballerinawithagun

        I read that also! Talk about gravity!

    • marlie

      I find it impossible to believe that she actually DID look in the mirror and think that her hair was remotely acceptable for going anywhere where her picture would be taken.

  • Sarah

    See thru pants aren’t a big deal when you’re shilling your book where you’re nude on the cover, I guess.

    • tereliz

      It’s so sweet of you to call those “pants”. LOL. I wasn’t sure if they’re stretching a little too much or if it’s glare from too much nylon-spandex in the mix, but either way it’s a no.

      • Sarah

        Yeah, “pants” IS a stretch…HAHA

        • tereliz


  • Sobaika

    Hate the gap between her leggings and booties. It’s not big enough to seem intentional.

    She’s needed a hairtervention for years now.

    • demidaemon

      She needs more than a hairtervention—she needs hair rehab.

      • ballerinawithagun

        As we saw in Something About Mary, she has limp hair and requires gel!!!

  • Carolyne

    Her hair has always been worrisome, but this is THE worst! It’s making my eyes want to move to someone else’s head.

  • marlie

    This is maybe a casual date night outfit, with post-gym hair. It’s all… fine, I guess, but not for a public, “professional” appearance. And I’m over all of the celebrities and their “how I got my fabulous body” books.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I like to think that the book is divided into two sections:
      1. Good genes and how I got them
      2. Money and how I got lots of it

      • marlie

        2. Money and how I used #1 to get lots of it

  • ShaoLinKitten

    When my four year old saw the first picture in this post, he said, “P-U! She looks like she smells!” I have nothing to add to that.

    • Sue Shea

      that is awesome!

    • kimmeister

      Your child is wise beyond his (her?) years.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      That is a perceptive child-keep up the good work!

  • @Biting Panda

    I’m all “Whatevs, Cammie” Because, frankly, I don’t want to hear from a genetically gifted, former model, all about how to be beautiful. Because when it starts off by being a 6ft, leggy, blonde, I am already woefully behind the curve.

    • Exactly. This book will personally be responsible for the disappointment and self-hatred of at least a few dozen teenagers.

    • Ginger

      Amen, sister! When a 5’6″ half-Czech redhead with cellulite and stretch marks (nope…not talking about myself AT ALL) writes a book about how to be beautiful, then it might pique my interest. Until then, I’ll just go on with my stretched out cellulite, freckles and attitude.

      • Sarah

        As a 5’4″ red-headed quarter-Czech – 3/4 Scots, I tend to agree 😉

        • Ginger

          I’m half Czech, but the other half is mutt…mostly comprised of Scot/Irish/Dutch/German. We could be related!

          • Sarah

            I know my whole tree back to the about the fifteenth century. My mom was a professional genealogist, and our family was her first big project. (Nobody famous, lotsa shipbuilders and farmers) Pretty interesting stuff!

          • Ginger

            I wish I had the time to really explore my family’s history. My mom’s side of the family can be traced back to before the American Revolution and I’m a 3rd generation American on Dad’s side. The most interesting thing that I can recall is that one of my ancestors on Mom’s side is responsible for bringing coffee to Texas, so there’s that!

          • That’s definitely something to take pride in. A world without coffee would be a sad, sad place.

      • @Biting Panda

        bon après-midi

  • LeelaST

    I’ve never understood her appeal, on or off screen. I do however, like her sweater.

  • xmixiex

    wtf is a ‘body book?’

  • bellafigura1

    I don’t mind what she’s wearing, in theory, but all together, she’s giving off a hung-over vibe. Nothing new, really, just more overt than usual.

  • MannahattaMamma

    @BitingPanda:disqus EXACTLY. It’s like Stella McCartney in the now famous GOOP column about tips for working mothers (seriously. Gwyneth did that. Cuz you know, helping others is where she’s at). So yeah: Cameron writes a body book which I would buy if the first line were “be born with the genes to be 6ft tall and blonde,” just like Stella should say that the first tip for a working mother is to be born the daughter of a Beatle. Gives a gal a leg up, you know?

  • filmcricket

    The jacket and the booties can stay. Everything else – feh.

  • queeniethebold

    i think she looks terrible. But i dislike her mightily so am unwilling, i confess, to give her the benefit of the doubt. Terrible. She looks as if she hasn’t had a shower in a couple of days.

    i suppose no one would buy it, but it would be ever so refreshing were a celeb to write an actual book about something besides “beauty.”

    • demidaemon

      There are ones who do. Most of them are comedians or have been in the business for a long, long time, such as Florence Henderson, etc., etc.

  • trisker

    I can and DO hate the brassy grow-out hair! She looks a mess! Is this an a.m. appearance after a late-night bender?

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Are you fucking kidding me?

  • Blair Sylvester

    Is she sick ? This is an I have a fever/cold and I’m just running errands as quickly as possible look if I’ve ever seen one

  • Lilyana_F

    Everything else I can sort of kind of understand, but that hair? Why?

  • Anathema_Device

    Make the pants/legging full length, add a blouse or nicer sweater, and fix the hair. I get that she’s going for approachable at a book signing, but she needs to be a tiny bit more polished.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I can see going for the approachable look, but a tiny bit of polish would have helped.

  • Lori

    That is some bad hair. It’s past yoga hair and into, “I crawled out of my sick bed, where I have been near death with the flu for the last 3 days, to come to this thing.”

  • Lily-Rygh

    Oh, no. Honey. That HAIR! Even if the outfit was a knock-out (it’s just okay) and her make-up impeccable (meh), her hair looks straight-out GREEN in some of these pictures!

    • Isabel

      From pool chlorine?

  • The Versatile Chef

    That reminds me, I need to touch up my roots…

  • giddypony

    She looks like she is trying out to be the lady Joker in the next Batman movie.

  • Betsy

    Cameron, darling. HOW can you show up anywhere with your hair in that bird’s nest “thing”. It’s like you grabbed a rubber band (yep, not even the good kind) and yanked it back in the car, before going in to sign books. Just a TINY tad more effort on the look, please??

  • VicD

    Guessing from the hair, she just came from a Bikram class.

  • elemspbee

    She’s not wearing pants? She’s wearing a hose, right? or yoga pants so probably not a bikram class; more likely vinyasa.

  • TAGinMO

    The pool hair must go.

  • Plin

    I get not wanting to glam out and intimidate the plebes who’ll be buying your book, but if you’re hoping I’ll shell out 25 hard-earned bucks for it, you should at least be a little aspirational. Also, shouldn’t you show off the Body in question, just a tiny bit? Make me want to look like you if you’re shilling a book based on the fact that I’m supposed to want to look like you, that’s all I’m saying.

  • Ros

    Get your roots done!

  • SportifLateBoomer

    Yes this is how I go grocery shopping at Whole Foods when I hope/pray I don’t run into anyone I know but invariably do. I make a tiny effort (boots instead of sneaks, for example) but just can’t get it together to go the whole way.

  • Anna_Cecilia

    Oh, Cammie. I’ve never had to promote a fitness book but I can relate to feeling a little bloated from PMS and/or holiday indulging. Regardless, the nature of your job and the resources which you have access to behooves a certain effort level.

    I didn’t want to have to put makeup on and blow dry my hair to end up in a polar vortex on my morning commute to work, but I did it anyway.

  • crash1212

    I love that sweater. I say tidy the hair and kill the leggins for skinny jeans and this is a major hit.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    Say it with me: “Leggings are not pants!”

    • Gatto Nero

      Yes. It had to be said. Thank you.

  • Go home, Cammie – you’re drunk. Or you should be.

  • GeoDiva

    If I won’t go the grocery store with my roots showing, then why in the world is she going to a book event with that awful hair? Have some pride woman!

  • decormaven

    This is a PR event to promote her book, and she looks like this? Dearie, if you are writing about your body, do your best to dress it properly and make the appropriate touch-ups (including your hair.) If you want people to shell out their hard-earned dollars, put in the effort, please.

  • MilaXX

    I like none of this Hair is bad, outfit looks like she just came from the gym.

  • I love this whole look when I put in the context of “Oh my god, you guys, I totally forgot I had to do this book signing, so my publicist had to pull me off the couch and give me her shoes to wear.”

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Cute if she were going grocery shopping and the paps just “happened” to catch her on the way back to her SUV. But she could have dressed up a teensy bit more for this. The jacket’s very cute, that’s about all I can really give her.

  • Trickytrisha

    She scares me.

  • sagecreek

    For the most part, if you want her body? Choose your parents very carefully.

    • kimmeister

      I had the poor judgment to select stumpy-legged, oily-skinned Vietnamese parents. What was I thinking???

      • sagecreek

        Eastern European peasants here. What WERE we thinking?

  • Dan_In_NYC

    I find it humorous how often her hair looks really bad.

  • Sunraya

    As my sainted grandmother used to say, “She looks like something the cat dragged in.” WTF??? Face does not look good, almost Joker scary. Hair is horrible, terrible, “I don’t give a shit,” horrendous. Clothes are ridiculous.
    Go home and start over.

  • kat89

    I disagree. This is a public appearance to sell a book. She shouldn’t look like it’s laundry day. She should have put some effort in. She looks awful.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Honestly, if the sweater dress was 6 inches longer I would LOVE it! The proportions wouldn’t look as screwed up.

  • lesmaha

    Is her hair green?

  • quiltrx

    I don’t care for her anyway…but her hair is actually making me angry.

  • that is one unflattering photo. the hair is not helping.

  • MaryMitch

    If I went out in public like that, my friends would stage an intervention…

  • Lauren Lynch Fox

    Still pretty.
