Don't hate Cameron Diaz because she's beautiful! The 41-year-old actress has had to work hard at keeping healthy and fit, despite her self-described "blessed gene pool." Diaz is telling all in her new book, "The Body Book," but is she giving readers too much information?
While the book -- which is excerpted in USA Today -- includes tips on everything from eating to acne (the "Bad Teacher" star revealed that she once had bad skin due to her bad diet) -- she definitely delves into private territory! Diaz advises against laser hair removal down yonder, urging readers to just let it grow. Referring to female parts as "that glorious, delicate flower of yours," she doles out the harsh reality: "Let's be honest: just like every other part of your body, your labia majora is not immune to gravity."
While Diaz's goal is to help women to "stop hating their bodies," she's certainly not the first celeb to sell her secrets, even if it means giving us TMI.
Last year, Oscar winning actress Shirley Jones penned her autobiography, "Shirley Jones: a Memoir," which included way more than we ever needed to know about her marriage to her "sexual Svengali," ex-husband Jack Cassidy. Jones went into shocking detail about her active sex life with Cassidy, which included dressing room quickies, suggestions of swinging, and a threesome with another woman. She even went on to detail her modern day masturbation techniques at age 79.
"Brady Bunch" mom Florence Henderson's 2011 memoir was a far cry from her squeaky clean sitcom storylines. In her 2011 book "Life Is Not a Stage," Henderson wrote about a cringe worthy behind-the-scenes life of sex, infidelity, and STDs, admitting to a 1960s affair with New York City mayor John Lindsay while she was married to first husband Ira Bernstein, which resulted in some pre-"Brady" bugs.
"Guess I learned the hard way that crabs do not discriminate but cross over all socioeconomic strata," the actress wrote. "He must have had quite the active life. What a way to put the kibosh on a relationship." (And what a way to make us never look at Carol Brady the same way again!)
And Tori Spelling has had plenty of tales to tell -- hence her four memoirs -- but did she go too far when she recently revealed details about her family's finances and lack of funds for her husband's vasectomy? In the 2013 book "Spelling It Like It is," the "90210" alum revealed that she and hubby Dean McDermott were advised by their business manager that they couldn't afford Dean's much-needed procedure. (They already have five kids: Liam, 6, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2, Finn, 1, and Jack, 15, Dean's son from a previous marriage.)
During an appearance on "The Talk," Spelling apologized for revealing the personal info, telling the panel of the daytime chatfest: "I just have to say, I love my husband. My poor husband, he's like, 'Why did you even write that? Now people are talking about my junk.' And I said, 'I'm sorry, babe.'"
So are we...
