Cameron Diaz Talks Poop, Chugs Bottle of Water on 'Dr. Oz'

It’s true: Diaz does talk candidly about bowel movements in The Body Book. She writes, “Let’s talk about poop, baby! Yes, you heard me right. Listen, it’s a natural and necessary part of being human. Now, I know that some people don’t like talking about their bowel movements but here’s why I’m talking about it: because your poop is a key indicator of your overall health.”

The actress said on the show that she was inspired to write openly and honestly about body issues because she wanted to help women embrace themselves and their bodies. “I realized that women just have so much confusion about their bodies. They were literally looking at me going, ‘How does this work? I don’t understand it. I’m confused by it,” she said. “I thought how can you be confused by something that we spend our entire lives in. So, because of that confusion, we’ve found ourselves comparing ourselves to other people, other women.”

We love that Cameron is so open about her body! Watch the video below:
