Cameron Diaz has shot down claims that she has come out as bisexual, saying that quotes from her were taken out of context.

Last month, she had said in an interview with Glamour: “I think women are beautiful.

“I think that all women have been sexually attracted to another woman at some point. It’s natural to have a connectivity and an appreciation for the beauty of other women.”

However, today she has dismissed claims that she was coming out as bisexual, telling PrideSource that she had been misrepresented.

The actress said: “That’s not at all what I said. That’s not what I was saying. That’s what people are [saying]. What I’m saying is that I can appreciate the beauty of another woman.

“I’ve said this forever: I think women’s bodies are beautiful – all shapes, all sizes. Every part of a woman is beautiful and that’s something that we’ve celebrated culturally throughout history.”

“It’s a beautiful thing that we can appreciate beauty in other women. I think that’s amazing. If they’re confident in themselves and know who they are, heterosexual men can look at another heterosexual man and go, “Yeah, he’s pretty hot. He’s a sexy man.”

“Because we have to label it, because we make people choose who they want to be, people aren’t happy.

“They’re ruining relationships and friendships and marriages, and they’re feeling like they can’t have all sides of themselves. They feel like they have to choose.

“If we just allowed people to be themselves and to be open to it and not have to be absolute one way or another, life could be really full.”
