Cameron Diaz Wants To Be Objectified... But I Don't!

Cameron Diaz

Did Cameron put her foot in her mouth?

Oh, Cameron. This is what happens when you're having a conversation with an interviewer, and it doesn't end up looking so great in print.

The sexy 40-year-old actress recently opened up to the U.K.'s Sunday Times about being a sex object... and being OK with it. "I think every woman does want to be objectified," she said. "There's a little part of you at all times that hopes to be somewhat objectified, and I think it's healthy."

Hm, I'm not so sure I agree with that, but I think I can see where she's coming from. "It's empowering," she added. "I'm not some young girl with the photographer going, 'Will you take your clothes off?' I'm like, 'How does this look?' [The stylists are] like, 'Today we're not going to put anything other than bras and heels on you, and I'm like, 'These heels are not high enough.'"

Cameron is definitely not afraid to show off her hot bod. She's appeared in sexy spreads for Playboy, Maxim and more over the years. "I'm a woman, I know how to handle myself," she continued. "I know what I feel comfortable doing, and I know my sexuality."

More power to her! Confidence and sexiness are definitely not mutually exclusive, but I think the word "objectification" probably should have been replaced with something else. Do we really want to be treated as an object or do we merely want to be considered sexy?

Everyone likes attention at times, but being treated solely as a sex object isn't something I think we seek out. I got you, Cam. I just wish you would have explained that a little, um, differently.

Tell Us: Do you agree with Cameron? Do you think women WANT to be objectified by men?
