"Cameron Diaz Is Trying to Convert the World to Polyamory"...

...says the celebrity-news site Famously, exaggerating. Judge for yourself:

Cameron Diaz Is Trying to Convert the World to Polyamory

By Beejoli Shah

Continuing her one-woman performance art attempt at being Shailene Woodley‘s sexually graphic great-aunt, Cameron Diaz has moved on from preaching about pubes to promoting polyamory.

In an interview with The Mirror [a U.K. tab], the girl who once adorably romanced Jim Carrey at his greenest opens up about the importance of opening up, when it comes to picking more than one romantic partner.

“We can have all of these girlfriends, all of these friendships. I know with my girlfriends I do totally different things with each one of them. I have different conversations. We like things that others don’t like. There are different commonalities in each one of them and when I want to do those certain things, I can go to that girlfriend and we do those things together… For some reason, we get into relationships and we expect one man to understand ‘all’ the parts of us and meet all of those needs. I think that’s where everything fails.”

Given that she just told InStyle this month “I don’t know if anyone is really naturally monogamous. We all have the same instincts as animals,” it should come as no surprise that Cammi D’s au naturale lady parts are equal opportunity lovers. When The Mirror followed up to ask whether she advocated for having multiple partners at once, she retorted, “Why not? Why would that be so bad?”

...Although when it comes to men, her Wikipedia biography makes it look like serial monogamy has been more her style.

See the original article (April 15, 2014).

Diaz is an extremely successful actress. Her 42 movies include Being John Malkovich, Vanilla Sky, Gangs of New York, There's Something About Mary, and three that are currently in the works. She is said to be Hollywood's richest actress over 40.

Well, she does have a point. People understand and accept the concept of multiple friends to meet varied interests, yet somehow most people can't apply that logic to romantic relationships. It's a shame, because trying to be somebody's "everything" can be exhausting.

Just because you advocate polyamory doesn't mean you necessarily more know more than one of these partners at the one time.

I am always delighted to hear celebs advocate for Polyamory, not just Diaz but also Tilda Swinton and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, for example. The more who do, the more mainstreamers who haven't heard of it become aware.

Eh...this was based on shotty journalism. Cameron Diaz stars in a movie who's character says she doesn't believe in monogomy. She didn't actually say that herself, she isn't an "advocate" for polyamory or at least doesn't advocate one way or the other. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2611362/Cameron-Diaz-denies-saying-doesnt-believe-monogamy-GMA-Leslie-Mann-Kate-Upton.html

Same thing with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Just because you read it on some blog, or on one article doesn't mean it's automatically true.
