Cameron Diaz for InStyle UK July 2012

Cameron Diaz graces the cover of InStyle UK’s July 2012 issue wearing a baby blue Valentino Couture lace dress.

She talks to the magazine about turning 40 in August, having children plus she shares how Drew Barrymore’s fiancé had to ask for Cameron’s blessing before popping the question.

Her Haute Couture editorial, shot by Liz Collins, sees her wearing Givenchy and Giambattista Valli.

The magazine goes on sale this Thursday. Here are some extracts from her interview.

On turning the big 4-0 in August: “Life gets better as you get older, definitely. I don’t want to be 20! I feel better than ever: stronger, more capable and clearer. I really know myself now.”

On friendships: “Good friendship is basic: be good to one another, be thoughtful, enrich one another’s lives. I learn so much from my girlfriends and I love it.”

On making movies: “What I love about movies is how many people they can reach. I don’t make a movie because I think, ‘This is something I want to say’. I just want people to laugh, to cry, to feel.”

    I really hear her on ageing. I hate it when people take me for younger and then insist that I should be flattered. I feel like what I bring in terms of life experience is discounted when I’m mistaken for a young girl barely out of her parents’ nest.

    Pretty sure the Givenchy is the one Zoe Saldana wore to the SAG awards. 🙂
    A nice interview, she looks better than she has in a while but still like herself.

    FC, the white is the same valentino that Shailene Woodley wore in the Oscar’s. Not GV.

    Love the simplicity of the cover.

      Looking forward to the four day weekend so I can take a break
