Botox and fillers aren’t for everyone in Hollywood. To Cameron Diaz, aging is one of the most beautiful parts of life. She’s not only telling us how to do so happily (and gracefully) in her latest book, she’s also showing us by embracing her wrinkles in a makeup-free selfie.
The 43-year-old actress posted a barefaced photo on Instagram to promote her latest work, The Longevity Book, writing, “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.”
In a post on her website, Diaz shares a sneak peek of her life-living secrets that we’re likely to see in her book. Her five pillars of living your happiest, healthiest life? “Eating, moving your body, getting a good nights sleep, relief of stress, and connecting with the ones we love.”

She goes on to advise that the key to aging “better” is accepting growing old in the first place. “Learning that you can age well, will actually help you to age better,” she writes. “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.”
And Diaz practices what she preaches — she’s made it clear that she’s proud of her face as she’s growing older, being that this isn’t the first time she’s gone makeup-free to promote one of her works. She posted three barefaced selfies to celebrate her last hit read, The Body Book.
Hello Ladies! Happy Fall! Hope everyone is enjoying this glorious time of year; the chillier air, the changing and falling leaves; all of the markers of another year coming to a close, and a hint at the new one about to unfold. I first wanted to thank all of you who answered our call this past summer to send in any questions you might have about aging in a female body. I am so grateful for your participation, as it allowed us to address your inquries in the next volume of the @TheBodyBook. It is centered around the mental, physical and emotional journey of aging. And as we diligently put the finishing touches on the book, we’d like to ask for your help once more. This book is for you and about you and that’s why we’d like to see you on the cover. Much like the cover of the Body Book, under the jacket, were we featured women of all different shapes, sizes, builds and ethnicities. We would like for you to feel represented again, this time to show where you are in your process of aging. So we invite you to take a picture of yourself. It should look much like the one I have here; against a plain background, this general framing-you can crop closer to a portrait, and the higher-def the better! We’d like to see more of that beautiful face of yours than the body this time. And if you want to snap one with yourself and your mom and your daughter together, or any multiple generations or expressions of your journey with aging, we’d love to see those, too! And for the 50 we use on the actual cover, we’ll send you a signed copy of the book when it hits bookstores in April. So be yourself with it, be brave with it, have fun with it, and we can’t wait to see. Thank you again and Happy Selfie-ing!! Ox, Cameron To submit, click the link in my profile.
Her biggest wish for all her friends: “That you get to grow old.”
