    Finally, Cameron Diaz has clearly up her stance on pubic hair—and we know you were all waiting with bated breath.

    During an appearance on the The Graham Norton Show, which will air Friday evening, the 41-year-old actress addressed her previous headline-making remarks which appeared in The Body Book, the star's first venture in publishing, in which she encouraged women to keep their their vaginas "fully dressed."

    "I would like to clear up what I said. I don't care what women do with it, but we should be informed about how their bodies work," Diaz clarified. "It [pubic hair] is there for a reason and to laser it off is to lose it forever!"

    She then grabbed filming director Richard Ayoade's hair as a prop before adding, "It will never come back, and I think women should consider what forever means."

    Of course, the intimate topic of conversation left fellow guests Russell Crowe and Kylie Minogue rather bashful as Diaz candidly shared her opinion on public hair in a no-holds-barred fashion.

    The 41-year-old dedicates a section of her book, which aims to help women love their bodies, to explain why she thinks it is important for ladies to forgo the laser hair removal trend.

    "I hear that there's a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits," the blond beauty writes in the section, titled In Praise of Pubes. Diaz adds that the idea of laser hair removal is a "crazy idea" because it lasts "forever."

    "I know you may think you'll be wearing the same style of shoes forever and the same style of jeans forever, but you won't," she continues. "The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon, and all fads change, people."

    She explains that pubic hair serves as a "pretty little draping" and that ladies should consider leaving their vaginas "fully dressed."

    "Twenty years from now, you will still want to be presenting it to someone special, and it would be nice to let him or her unwrap it like the gift that it is," she concludes.

    But that doesn't mean Diaz won't show her support for her pals who are fans of the hairless fad, such as Gwyneth Paltrow.

    "Every time I have a bikini wax, Cameron Diaz holds me down," Paltrow said during an interview with the hosts of Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show .

    "Cheers to our hairless vaginas!" Paltrow then exclaimed by way of a toast.

    Or in Cam's case, cheers to our "fully dressed" vaginas.
