Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz has recently admitted to W magazine that she wants to get her nose fixed, but not for cosmetic reasons:
“I’m getting it fixed. I can’t take it. I cannot breathe at all,” says Diaz, who broke her nose for the fourth time while surfing a few years ago. “One side of my nose is totally shattered – my septum is basically like a train derailed.”

In the above photo you can see that her nose is crooked to the right. It is often caused by trauma to the septum, which is the cartilage and bone that separates the two nasal airways. I bet that if you plugged her left nostril with your finger she wouldn't be able to breathe through the right nostril. It is often fixed by removing the cartilage that is deviated and breaking the bone back over. Insurances often pay for it if it is bad enough.

The actress – who costars with Jude Law in the upcoming romantic comedy The Holiday – also admits that getting older has had one major drawback: She can no longer scarf down junk food with wild abandon.

“I used to be able to eat anything I wanted and then go right to bed. Fried chicken, onion rings, half a bottle of wine,” she says. “As you get older, your insides rebel. You’ve asked so much of them for so many years, and then they just go, ‘Uh-uh, bi-atch! Gonna eat cheese fries? See how you sleep!’ And you’re tossing and turning all night.”

I'm in my mid-30's and would echo that sentiment exactly. I can no longer drink more than a glass of wine without feeling the ill effects throughout next day. I guess it's the curse of getting older...

Do you call yourself "bi-atch" in your head? - Your receptionist

Well, doctor, you and Cameron Diaz must be highly refined sensitive people. I am a female twenty years older than you and Cameron, and, while I don't drink much alcohol, unfortunately I can eat just about anything and everything and feel just fine. Happy Thanksgiving!
