Run, hamster, run

A former blonde "bombshell" projects her own insecurities on married couples:
She has romanced some of the world’s most sought-after men, from Matt Dillon to Justin Timberlake, but none has been able to tame her [Didact: I'm already seeing a reference to Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew here- and guess who the shrew is?] and, at 41, Cameron Diaz has revealed that her single status makes married women – and men – nervous. 
I think some people want other people to make the same choices in life that they have made so that they can feel good about their own choice,’ said the actress, who is currently starring in the rom-com The Other Woman. 
‘I think that some married people have made the choice to get married, but when they see a person who is living a different way, it makes them stop and think, “Wait a second – you mean you don’t need to get married after all?  
'"You mean that I felt I had to get married, but you don’t feel that you have to?”  
'And if they weren’t too sure about their choice in the first place, that can make them very uncomfortable.’
I'm sure Ms. Diaz rather enjoys the single life- but I suspect it's less fun at the age of 41 than it was at the age of 21. Her unwarranted confidence about her lifestyle aside, it really is remarkable just how insecure she seems.

Think about what she's saying. She seems to think that married couples look at her and think that maybe they didn't have to get married themselves. Does she realise that she lives a life that 99.999% of people will never achieve? What is possible and realistic for her is completely impossible for most people.

And then there is the conceit that married couples think they "have to" get married. No one has to get married unless there was a whoopsie involved- and even then, in today's society, having children out of wedlock is not exactly verboten.

My guess is that Ms. Diaz recognises, deep down, that her time is rapidly running out, and she is desperately flailing around for some justification for her lifestyle and her precious princess attitude toward the men she has dated.

Consider her most famous romance, with some berk named Justin Timberlake who- so I am told- sings and acts for a living. He is 33, a good 8 years younger than his former paramour. He married this woman two years ago, when she was 30:

Sure, she's got a weird face, but... WYB?
And this is what Ms. Diaz looks like right now- with heavy use of Photoshop and every trick in the book:

She looks good, no question. But she's a long way removed from her twenties:

The lesson to be learned here is that women don't get better with age- their single most important asset devalues over time, and a woman with good sense will try to preserve that value for someone special in her early years. Ms. Diaz's attempt to devalue the choices made by women who choose to marry and stay married is nothing more and nothing less than a reflection of her own insecurities. It's not funny or witty; it's just sad to watch a formerly beautiful woman hit The Wall like that, and then try to justify her status post-Wall to the rest of the world.


  1. They just never stop whining, do they? "Blah, blah, ME, blah, blah ME, blah blah OTHER PEOPLE'S FAULT!"

    There ain't enough cheese in the universe to go with all that whine.
