Former fast food fanatic Cameron Diaz is following up her 2013 book debut with her new release, The Longevity Book, which is not about how a staple diet of Taco Bell will help you live forever. To promote the book's April 5 release, 43-year-old Diaz posed with the hardcover edition on her Instagram, all while sporting what appears to be no makeup.
I'm so excited to continue the conversation because learning that you can age well, will actually help you age better. If you understand how your body works then you can take action to help keep it in the best possible condition so it can carry you through a long and beautiful life. | Read my full post at www.OurBodyBook.com @thebodybook #linkinprofile#longevitybook #knowledgeispower #everyoneages
As far as makeup-free Instagrams go, Diaz's photo does indeed seem makeup free—unless you want to question the source of her shiny lips.
The book cover looks similarly makeup-free, which makes sense as Diaz's book is all about embracing the process of slowly approaching death.
On her website, Diaz described the impetus behind her book.
I feel like aging has gotten a bad rap…I guess that’s what happens when you don’t understand something! That’s why I wanted to write this book so that we could understand what aging really is. And what I found was aging isn’t about getting old it’s about LIVING…
In that case, everybody should start aging—oh, wait, nobody has a choice about that matter. Then again, as a Hollywood actress Diaz knows firsthand how society abhors the dreaded process of aging so perhaps she has some wisdom to share. She did, after all, manage to date Justin Timberblake for a few years, which demands a certain level of respect. Now she's married to Benji Madden, which is still surprising even though that happened last year.
