Cameron Diaz isn't saying yes — or no — to marriage and kids. The Sex Tape actress, who's dating rocker Benji Madden, is all about going with the flow, so while she's not actively hoping to settle down soon, she's open to every possibility.

"I'm not looking for a husband or marriage or not not looking for that stuff," she told Marie Claire for the magazine's November issue. "I'm living, not thinking what I should or shouldn't be doing with my life."

That includes starting a family. "We live in a society where everyone has kids, so they want other people to have kids," Diaz, 42, noted. "There is this culture that says celebrities are supposed to be just like us, so people think, 'I have children, why doesn't she?'"

She continued, "If a family happens, then it happens. 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."

That easy-breezy attitude is something she applies to her career, too. Diaz is ready and willing to take risks for the right role, and that includes stripping on camera. "People have seen my butt. I've shown the top of my butt, the bottom of my butt," she told the mag. "I'm not opposed to doing nudity, as long as it's part of the story. I'll do whatever has to get done if it's the right thing."

In the case of the upcoming film adaptation of the Broadway musical Annie, in which she stars as Miss Hannigan, that meant singing. "It's not very often you get to do a musical," Diaz said of the role. "Even though I was terrified of doing it, I kind of had to. The two things I'm most terrified of are heights and singing in front of people. I've jumped out of airplanes and scaled sides of cliffs — not to get over my fears, but to address them. I just felt like this is something that needed to be addressed." 

Which is not to say she liked doing it. "I cried uncontrollably," she admitted to Marie Claire. "Everybody was so supportive and having fun with it because I was so pathetic, but the only way to get through scary things is to have a sense of humor about it."

The November issue of Marie Claire is on stands Oct. 21.
