Cameron Diaz slipped into a little white Chanel dress for the December cover of Elle UK — see Cameron's full photo shoot and interview in the December issue when it goes on sale tomorrow, Nov. 7, both on newsstands and digitally. Elle UK caught up with Cameron at Guy Ritchie's London tavern, The Punch Bowl, to chat about her acting career and her forthcoming film Gambit. The film hits UK theaters Nov. 21, though there's no word yet on when we'll see Cameron and her costar Colin Firth on the big screen in the States. Like her best friend Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron's also trying her hand at publishing. She talked with the magazine about why she decided to share her personal health, fitness, and lifestyle tips in a book. Here's more from Cameron's interview:
- When asked what burns more calories — 30 minutes of dancing or 30 minutes of sex: "Depends on what kind of sex you're having. Try 'em both! Do them both on the same day, that's what I say!"
- On what she would do if she wasn't acting: "I have no idea. That's why I'm so grateful for it [acting success]. It's the only thing that I know how to do. I do think about it all the time — what would have happened had I not just found my way out from that? But I think you always find your way out."
- On her forthcoming food and fitness book: "It's not about what I eat or do what I do. It's really about the information, so that young girls and women can look at it and make their own choices. I'd hate to give them guidelines of what I do. My hope is that I give them all the information so that it doesn't matter what I or other people do . . . I'm excited about my discipline [which revolves around] a protein, a grain and a green . . . I want to be disciplined. It's not a limitation to me; it opens up my life to so many opportunities."
