Cameron Diaz: Getting Married for Life is “Bulls**t”

 Jon Furniss/

Cameron Diaz has romanced the likes of Justin Timberlake, Matt Dillon, Jared Leto and current beau Alex Rodriguez — but she's not looking for the love of her life. In fact, she isn't sure there is such a thing.

"I think the big misconception in our society is that we're supposed to meet the one when we're 18 and we're supposed to get married to them and love them for the rest of our lives. Bulls**t," she told UK's Stylist magazine (via Huffington Post).

The Knight and Day star, who turns 38 next month, has never been married, despite engagements to Leto and Dillon. She and Yankee slugger Rodriguez have been photographed together for months but have not publicly discussed their romantic status.

"Who would want to be with the same person for 80 years? Why not break it up a little bit?" Diaz tells Stylist.

"I think people get freaked out about getting married and spending 20 or 30 years sleeping with the same person, but if that's the case, don't do it."

Her alternate advice: "Have someone for five years and another person for another five years… Life is long and lucky and yes, love might last forever, but you don't always live with the person you love forever."

She and Timberlake called it quits after four years together back in 2007. She told Playboy last month, "in the past three years I've made a conscious decision not to be in a relationship for as long as I want."
