Cameron Diaz has revealed that she believes deodorant is bad for you and so refuses to wear it. 

The gorgeous Hollywood actress, currently starring in The Other Woman with Kate Upton and Leslie Mann, admitted that she has not used the product in over 20 years. “I don't believe in antiperspirant. It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years”, she said.

"'You're stinky because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in," she added. 

Cameron also believes that men shouldn’t use deodorant either – and with Hollywood stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey all having said they don’t use it, she is in good company. ''Let it go and just trim your armpit hair so it doesn't hold onto the scent,” she said whilst speaking to E! One of our Top 10 Women in Comedy, Cameron Diaz has previously starred in Bad Teacher, In Her Shoes, and There’s Something About Mary. 

She recently released a new book called The Body Book, in which she shared her personal experience of learning to love and take care of the body you have.

"Two years ago I had this absolute moment when it came to me that I had to do this book because nobody else was going to do it," she said of her book. "I had to find a way to share the knowledge that I have about my body at 41 – and wish I’d had at 21." 

Speaking of the problems she faced during her teenage years, Cameron describes how she was plagued by acne which she says was so bad that she spent her time "trying to hide from my friends, from the cameras, from everyone.""I think that for a young person, having bad skin is a real issue because your face is the first thing people look at when they meet you," she added. "So I wrote the book for my 16-year-old self, who I look back on and think, “Why didn’t I know these things then?"
