Has Cameron Diaz changed her stance on settling down?
Amid speculation that she might be wearing an engagement ring from Benji Madden, the Annie actress covers Marie Claire's November 2014 issue an reiterates her belief that marriage isn't the be-all, end-all. Still, Diaz hasn't ruled it out entirely. "I'm not looking for a husband or marriage or not not looking for that stuff," she clarifies. "I'm living, not thinking what I should or shouldn't be doing with my life."
If Diaz becomes a mother, it'll be on her own terms. "We live in a society where everyone has kids, so they want other people to have kids. There is this culture that says celebrities are supposed to be just like us, so people think, 'I have children, why doesn't she?' But I'm not going to do something because it's expected," says Diaz, whose famous exes include Jared Leto, Alex Rodriguez and Justin Timberlake.
"If a family happens, then it happens," the Other Woman star continues. "If children come to me, then I would do that, but I'm not someone who feels like she has to do something because it's expected."
