Cameron Diaz Would Like You To Know She Can Have Kids If She Wants To . . . And Also, She Hasn’t Used Antiperspirant in 20 Years
Just because CAMERON DIAZ is 41 and childless, that doesn’t mean she’s BARREN. She says, quote, “If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them.
“But I’m certain that if at any point I wanted a child, that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption, or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child.”
Maybe the reason she doesn’t have kids is because no guy wants to get close enough to impregnate her. Because she also says, quote, “I don’t believe in antiperspirant. It’s really bad for you. I haven’t used it for almost 20 years.”
She adds, quote, “You’re stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in. “Let it go and just trim your armpit hair so it doesn’t hold onto the scent.”

10 of Hollywood’s Worst Tippers
A list of Hollywood’s worst tippers includes Sean Penn, Madonna, Bill Cosby, Britney Spears, Tiger Woods and Rachael Ray . . . who actually believes waiters and waitresses should only be tipped $7.
Katherine Heigl: In addition to being a bad tipper, she’s also a lousy customer . . . complaining about her food, sending it back multiple times and being extremely demanding. She’s worth $25 million.
Sean Penn: He and some friends once ran up a $450 bill at a restaurant in New Orleans, then dashed without leaving SQUAT for the server. He’s worth $100 million.
Britney Spears: She once threw change at the feet of a valet attendant and said, “There’s your tip.” She also left a $26 tip on a $500 bill, which comes to 5%.
And one time at a Vegas restaurant, she made the waiter run across the street and get her Starbucks. She didn’t tip him, or even reimburse him for the coffee. And she’s got an estimated $200 million in the bank.
Kirsten Dunst: She once left NO TIP on a $223 bill . . . and after she left, the staff said she was whiny and smelled bad. (???) Another time, a restaurant comped her entire meal and she STILL left no tip. Even though she’s worth $25 million.
Usher: He’s been known to leave AUTOGRAPHED PICTURES of himself instead of cash. He has a net worth of $140 million.
Rachael Ray: Being in the food industry, you’d think she’d be a good tipper. But she regularly tips less than 10%, and has even said on her TV show that 7% is GOOD ENOUGH. Maybe that’s why she has $60 million to her name.
Bill Cosby: He’s worth $350 million . . . but he once left a $3 on a $350 bill. That’s less than a 1% tip.
Jeremy Piven: He was banned from all Nobu Matsuhisa restaurants after he took 12 of his friends to one in Aspen in 2007. Even though the place was packed and he didn’t have a reservation, they got him a table.
Madonna: She’s notoriously rude to waiters and often doesn’t leave a tip at all. One time she splurged and left an $18 tip on a $400 bill. That’s 4.5%. She’s worth $650 million. Oh, and she used to be married to fellow bad tipper Sean Penn.
Tiger Woods: While vacationing with a “mystery woman” in Las Vegas one time, Tiger stiffed his waiter . . . so the WOMAN left a tip. Probably out of embarrassment. Tiger has $500 million in the bank.
