41-year-old Cameron Diaz has discussed her flick 'Sex Tape' in a recent interview. And she appeared to be not in the least bit ashamed or awkward over her role in the film Sex Tape. In fact, she said that doing the hot and horny sex scenes with actor Jason Segel was a cinch and it felt good.
“Jason was the perfect partner to do this with,’’ says Diaz in a recent interview. “He and Jake (Kasdan, director) made me feel very safe. It was a locker room kind of vibe; we were teammates in it together. And you have to get naked as part of doing it.”
And Jason had to diet down to the right weight in order to play her partner in Sex Tape. Jason Segel lost 14kg to play the role of Diaz’s husband in the movie.
Cameron and Jason play a couple post-children who decide to spice up their sex life by making a video of them selves cavorting in bed.
Of course the whole shebang goes wrong with the video accidentally going viral. That is when the real fun starts. And Jason is also not ashamed at all on the nude sex scenes of him with Diaz.
“I don’t really have a sense of pride or shame, but I must say as I have gotten older and I have developed a more meaningful relationship with my body, I take it a little more seriously. I take myself more seriously now,” he said.

Cameron appeared with a much heavier Jason in the movie Bad Teacher. Both Diaz and Segel are against posting love moments on the internet.
“Especially for teenage girls,’’ says Segel, warning girls never to trust a teenage boy. “You are not going to marry a 15-year-old boy. You are not sending that picture to your (future) husband!”
“What’s the point of having something like that even be a factor in your life? It doesn’t have to be,’’ adds Diaz. She said that she would not advice young girls to allow their boyfriends to make sex tapes of them in real life.
Besides she was not a big fan of social media either. Her Twitter account was something she cancelled after awhile due to some issues.
“I tried Twitter for a couple of months and I really didn’t take to it,” said Diaz. “It’s just not my instinct to share what I am doing with the world or to look and see what other people are doing. I forget I even have the app on my phone.”
“It doesn’t give me a particularly good feeling to see the negativity that’s out in the world, either.”
What Cameron simply did not like were certain comments regarding her remaining childless and not starting a family. Cameron said that it was a personal choice whether you wanted to have a baby or not.
“What their purpose is, and what we are here for. People like to project,” she said. “I think (the reaction) comes from people wanting to feel good about their own decisions. Just because I don’t have children now, they might look at their life and think, ‘Oh, you have a choice? I didn’t have to do this yet?’’’
“I don’t really feel the pressure of it. I have never declared anything about whether I will or won’t have a family. Or whether I will or won’t get married. I am a very present person. I am very happy where I am at,’’ says Diaz.
If she preferred to remain without children that was her own decision and no one ought to pressurize her into the whole thing.
“I don’t know the future but I am very open to anything that might happen. If I decide I want to bring a child into my life, then when that day comes I will do it. But it’s not one of those things that I concern myself with at the moment.”
And in another interview she also defended her movie which the interviewer said was not very good. Cameron spoke of how they make movies not for critics but for the audience.
“We don’t make movies for the critics,” says Diaz. “We make movies for the audiences, who clearly liked The Other Woman. It was a hit at the box office.”
So, she reserved her decision to see her movie as a success instead of a popcorn failure. But it is a fact that the critics gave pretty negative reviews of sex tape. They termed it joyless and mechanical. The film was not the least bit sexy.
Rather it portrayed an adult-rated topic and was no movie for children or even teenagers to be watching. The peril of technology was what the film was about actually and it served more as a lesson or a warning rather than as any sort of entertainment.
