Getting older when you’re an actress is often considered to be a negative thing, but Cameron Diaz, 37, doesn't see it that way.
"The experience of growing older is that you become more introspective. You learn who you are and what you want. When you're in your 20s, you have no idea what the hell's going on or who you are or how the world works,” the actress told InStyle magazine in its July issue.
“Wisdom is really underrated. We are obsessed with youth, with physical youth, what we look like and what happens to our bodies as we get older. We forget what happens to our souls, our minds, and our actual human experience."
