Cameron Diaz to star in 'What to Expect When You're Expecting'

Cameron Diaz is about to experience the joys of motherhood.

No, the actress isn't pregnant, but she is set to star in an upcoming movie based on the classic parent-to-be guide "What to Expect When You're Expecting."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Diaz is close to signing a deal to appear in the film about five couples who are going through the process of childbirth. She will reportedly play a fitness-show instructor, similar to tough trainer Jillian Michaels of "The Biggest Loser."

Though she may be making a movie about people with babies on the brain, Diaz herself has said she's in no rush to receive a visit from the stork.

"Having children changes your life drastically, and I really love my life," the "Bad Teacher" star told InStyle last July. "Children aren't the only things that bring you gratification and happiness, and it's easier to give life than to give love, so I don't know. That kind of change would have to be either very well thought out, or a total mistake – a real oops!"

    A really big oops? How about a total freak of mother nature since Cameron Diaz is about what, 50 years old now? She looks it any way.

    I just hate the morning sickness. It always seems worse after I have 2 large supreme pizzas for dinner. My ankles ACHE. Ive been wearing bedroom slippers to the grocery store the last few months. I hope my little girl will weigh 200 pounds or more when born. I weigh 370 pounds already.

    I agree, she's only acting. Can't wait for this movie, cuz I'm pregnant and reading "What to Expect", lol. By the time the movie comes out, I'll no longer be expecting!

      Elaine,Good job on the bank rating blog seciton.I like your words to ponder today! Are you suggesting that US is ceasing to grow? We blindly followed our congress and President on those WMDs!Also, I see that in 1990 Pete Rose was sentenced for tax evasion.I really dislike baseball now and don't follow it at all, very hypocritical! Although I think Pete is a jerk in a lot of ways, however, he played the game with passion and he still isn't in the Hall of Fame and he never cheated on the field. However, the baseball commissioner, players and owners have been lying and covering up steroid usage and cheating the fans for years but no ban on them. Oh well, maybe someday Pete!

    What does her not wanting to have children have to do with her starring in this movie? Those are her REAL personal beliefs. Starring/acting in a movie is MAKE BELIEVE. one doesnt have anything to do with the other. Geez...come on people.

    i guess it seems strange that someone who has no desire to have children would star in this movie but i still want to see it when it's out. that book is awesome. it has information on pretty much everything pregnancy related.

    To Jade: She's a box office actress; I think that is what the filmmakers were most concerned about. Also, this movie is about having a baby, not marriage. That said, I for one agree with her opinion on marriage and having children, it’s not for everyone.

      I never said I agreed or disagreed with her, but that movie would be a big draw in for a lot of people who believe that marriage should be the mandatory step before children and those who have pro-life views, I am also not saying that is synonymous. In a strictly speaking business PR point of view, it's a bad move for the filmmakers.

    A movie about being an expectant mother and everything that goes with it is going to have a star that doesn't believe in marriage and has publicly said so. What a terrible PR move for the filmmakers.
