Cameron Diaz not motivated by money
Cameron Diaz doesn’t care about money.
The ‘Knight and Day’ actress insists she never thinks about the fee when choosing what her next project will be as it is more important to her to be stimulated creatively.
She said: “I can read 40 scripts and they can all be huge movies that will make me tonnes of money, but if it doesn’t speak to me I’m not going to do it.”
The 37-year-old star can next be seen in ‘Knight and Day’ alongside her ‘Vanilla Sky’ co-star Tom Cruise and insists she took the role just to have fun, not to raise her profile.
She told Total Film magazine: “I don’t consider this film a vehicle. I consider it a time of my life when I want to go out and do some action, have some fun and work with Tom again.
“I’m not interested in playing the same girl over and over again.”
Cameron also admitted she isn’t worried about the critical response to the movie as her priority is her own happiness.
She explained: “You can’t worry about what other people say. You can’t make everybody happy, it’s impossible. The only person you can make happy is yourself, so why not put your energy into that?”
