Male model Paul Sculfor – a.k.a. Cameron Diaz‘s boyfriend – says he “bitterly regrets using cocaine” in a new interview.

“Apart from anything else, it made my hair fall out,” Sculfor, 37, tells the U.K.’s Mail on Sunday. “It started falling out in my partying years, because excessive cocaine abuse affects the adrenal system and halts hair growth. I’m lucky it grew back.”

Otherwise, the British model seems happy with his life – and looks. “I worked with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Helena Christensen – all the supermodels,” he said. “Turning up to a party filled with Hollywood stars became a pretty normal experience.”

Another major job perk? It helped introduce Sculfor to Diaz and his other famous ex, Jennifer Aniston.

How does he keep in such good shape? By boxing, his childhood career ambition. “I love boxing,” he says. “I have a punchbag in my house in LA – I use it every day.”

One thing he won’t do: Botox. “There are male models who do, but I’m studying to be an actor and I want to be able to make expressions with my face.”
