Cameron Diaz: ‘Everyone will be cheated on’


In comedy The Other Woman Cameron Diaz plays a girl who isn’t aware that she is dating a married man, but she says she didn’t want to make a statement by playing the role. The actress believes that everybody have or will face infidelity at some point in their lives and finds it a common thing.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, she said: “I didn’t make the movie to make a statement. My statement is that I’m actually not interested in making movies about men cheating on women, it’s not at all what I am interested in.

“Everybody has been cheated on, everyone will be cheated on. I can’t fix that, I don’t know how, I don’t have any judgment on anybody, I don’t know how to fix the problem.”

Cameron definitely doesn’t have a romantic view of life and points out that, as human beings, we all have to suffer, but also learn from the past mistakes.


“We are human beings, we are complicated – you cannot go through life without tallying up a few scars, you cannot go through life unscathed, it’s just what it is. It’s all meant to happen, take your lessons, figure it out, move on,” the actress added.

    Cameron is absolutely right. We all come through the unpleasant and painful situation in life. We all get cheated on by these or that people, not necessarily by our lovers or husbands, but close people, that w e trust. The idea is about taking a lesson, forgive, forget and move on. These are the golden words. Life is not only smiles and happiness, but also tears and loses. We, human beings, are this way, we can appreciate and understand things only in comparison. You cannot estimate the real happiness and great moments, unless you have been through the dark and painful ones. This is life!

    I totally agree with Cameron Diaz, unfortunately that is the hard and very hard to live with life’s truth all the people on the Earth have to do with cheating at least once per their lifetime. Actually I think that if people get to face it once only per their life, than they are very lucky. The truth is I went through my man’s cheating on me not once, and it was not the happiest time of my life. It is very difficult to go through betrayal, and it is almost impossible to start trusting other people again. I can’t wait to see that new movie with Cameron Diaz, I am sure that its main idea is not to make people suffer even more with the things they are going through, but to see the stories of other people and use it as their own therapy. Hmm , I guess it is quite a good idea to make such a movie, people are supposed to know that they are not lonely in this world in their problems, it helps.

    I was always wondering what reason is pushing people to cheat upon their other halves. I guess cheating on the person you are with, means not respecting yourself, as you choose the person to be in a relationship with, so this way by cheating you are not being respectful upon your own choice. Cameron Diaz is right, this is the problem that cannot be fixed at all, it is just the situation as it is, as we, people, we are in charge for it, it is like a circle that will never end, you harm a person, so God punishes you, and you get to go through same thing in order to know how it will feel like. The worst thing is that even while going through it, nothing changes, the situation stays completely same, people learn nothing, and unfortunately teach their children same thing.

    I have read somewhere a statistics, that has shown the fact that seventy three percent of the suicides committed in the world, are made due to the fact that young people were cheated by their other halves, and were not able to live with that or forgive that, which I consider as a completely silly thing, as nothing in this world is more precious than a person’s life, no matter how miserable it is. I am a believer. I believe that everything can be changed; the only thing that matters is having the desire to do so. Cameron Diaz has went through cheating in her story with Justin Timberlake, and it was quite difficult for her to go through it, but she has found some strength in order to do that, so why can’t other people follow her great example.
