Cameron Diaz Quotes:

“Your regrets aren’t what you did, but what you didn’t do. So I take every opportunity.”

“I would kiss a frog even if there were no promise of a Prince Charming popping out of it. I love frogs. I’d lick him.”

“I’ve been noticing gravity since I was very young.”

“What we women need to do, instead of worrying about what we don’t have, is just love what we do have.”

“French fries. I love them. Some people are chocolate and sweets people. I love French fries. That and caviar.”

“One thing I realized from Julia [Julia Roberts, her My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997) co-star]–which I knew before, but was made very clear–is that when you’re the star of the film, the crew looks to you to set the tone of everyday work. So when you come into work, whatever it is that you’re giving off, that is what the tone is going to be for the working conditions.”

“My Latin roots are very strong. All my life, because I’m blonde and blue-eyed, people who aren’t Hispanic can’t believe I am. And people who are Hispanic always think I’m not, because I don’t look like them. Being Latin is part of who I am and I bring that part to every role”

“Men are wonderful. I don’t think my feeling about that is ever going to change. I’m never going to feel differently about men. I’m not a man-hater. It’s just not in my nature. I think guys are amazing. I love the dichotomy, the differences in men and women. I think it’s wonderful. It keeps things interesting. We can’t walk in each other’s shoes. We don’t know what it’s really like, but we certainly can make an effort to know each other a little bit better.”
