Cameron Diaz has a pretty healthy lifestyle. She does, however, have one guilty pleasure: Pork scratchings.
The star of Something About Mary revealed in a recent interview with ELLE UK Magazine that pork scratchings were her “favorite snack in the world.”
Diaz said: “Oh, that’s my favorite snack in the whole world! Even with the bristles – I don’t care, I’ll do it! It’s my favorite thing.”
Diaz revealed her favorite snack during a quiz about British pub food. Diaz may love pork scratchings (the roasted skin of a pig, known as pork rinds in the US) but she wasn’t an expert on British pub food.
According to the Daily Mail, the Hollywood star that a Lancashire hotpot (lamb and onion topped with sliced potatoes) was a sexual euphemism.
“I don’t even want to let you know where my mind went with that. Sexual? No, it was more sophomoric – yes, the toilet! I have a tendency to either one or the other: sexual or scatological … But I’ve tried to become more mature. Is it anything to do with sausages? I’ve had sausages before… in a hotpot.”
The Shrek actress also talked to the magazine about her new book. Diaz is currently working on a health and well-being book. The actress said that she has a lot of advice to give, including: Do as I say and not as I do.
“It’s not about what I eat or do what I do. It’s really about the information, so that young girls and women can look at it and make their own choices. I’d hate to give them guidelines of what I do. My hope is that I give them all the information so that it doesn’t matter what I or other people do …. I’m excited about my discipline [which revolves around] a protein, a grain and a green… I want to be disciplined. It’s not a limitation to me; it opens up my life to so many opportunities.”
