Model-turned actress Cameron Diaz, the sophisticated woman in expensive designer clothes with an entourage of publicists, sees herself getting her hands dirty by working as a farm girl after quitting showbiz.
“I don’t want to say I’ve seen it all because this world is so vast, but I’ve always been on the move and what I’d love to do is spend a whole year in one place, actually on a farm, where I get to raise my own crops and my own livestock and for once in my life see just how life is cultivated,” said Diaz.
“It’s almost like this primal thing. I really just feel like the earth is where we all come from and we have nothing if we don’t have soil and water and sun. I’ve read a lot about agriculture and I feel the need inside me to work with the earth in some way. I guess it would be like a painter having to paint.”
