Cameron Diaz calls laser hair removal a 'crazy idea'

Cameron Diaz has authored a fitness, diet and beauty book called simply "The Body Book," and in it the 41-year-old actress does not hold back on a myriad of topics including laser hair removal which she terms a "crazy idea."

According to Us magazine Diaz writes, "I hear that there's a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits."

The "Bad Teacher" actress even devotes an entire chapter to the topic titled "In Praise of Pubes" which encourages women to abstain from permanent hair removal. 

"It’s a personal decision, but I’m just putting it out there: Consider leaving your vagina fully dressed, ladies," the blonde beauty writes. "Let’s be honest: Just like every other part of your body, your labia major is not immune to gravity."

"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 explained. "The idea that vaginas are preferable in a hairless state is a pretty recent phenomenon. All fads change, people."

And she also readily admits that she too suffered from acne and had "terrible, terrible skin."

"It was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away" she candidly wrote. "I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication: oral, topical, even the harshest prescriptions. Nothing helped for very long."

"Looking back, I realize that I hadn’t needed those prescription drugs, those vials of potions and creams," Diaz wrote. "I hadn’t needed to be angry at my skin or feel bad about myself. I had just needed to LISTEN TO MY BODY."
