With the November 21st UK release date her new movie "Gambit" quickly creeping upon us, Cameron Diaz garnered herself a little early exposure by covering the November 2012 issue of British Esquire magazine.
The 40-year-old actress seemed eager to prove that she isn't losing her sexiness with age as she posed in lingerie and bondage-inspired getup for the Terry Richardson shot front page.
Meanwhile, a few of the highlights from Miss Diaz's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to British Esquire!
On being happy at 40:
“For the first time in my life I’m content. I’m so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I’ve ever known. I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever. And as far as the physicality of it – I feel better at 40 than I did at 25.”
On having not been all that keen on marriage:
"It just wasn't the thing I was drawn to. I certainly didn't want it in my 20s. Or my 30s."
On what she's drawn to when it comes to fellas:
"I want someone who takes care of themselves, who's strong. To hear people are engaged in life like that is exciting to me."
On the prospects of having children:
"I don't need to have the children in my life be a part of my literal flesh. And anyway, there's still a possibility of that, I ain't that old. I'm feeling very ... capable."
