Cameron Diaz looks like the picture of summer on the June 2009 issue of Vogue magazine.
The 36-year-old actress talks about her new movie My Sister’s Keeper, the roles she chooses, being eco-conscious, and about aging.
"People who put labels on themselves limit themselves," she tells Vogue.
"If you are a woman who's been labeled as a sex symbol, for instance -- I mean, I am not saying that's the label people would apply to me. But if you see yourself that way, inevitably you get to a point when you are no longer a sex symbol. And if you can't move past that, you're putting a limit on yourself; you're arresting your development. And that's where I think a lot of women get in trouble."
Morley Safer interviewed Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, on 60 Minutes last night -- well, if you call 12 minutes an interview --and one of the subjects was too-thin models in the fashion industry.
And how did Anna respond?
“I had just been on a trip to Minnesota where I can only kindly describe most of the people that I saw as little houses," she says. "And I just felt like there’s such an epidemic of obesity in the United States. And for some reason everyone focuses on anorexia ... We need to spend money, time, and education on teaching people to eat , exercise, and take care of themselves in a healthier way.”
There is no doubt that we agree with you, Anna, that health is the issue here, but ultra-thin is no longer fashionable when health is at stake.

Michelle Obama graces the cover of the March 2009 Vogue magazine.
Wearing a magenta silk dress by inaugural gown designer Jason Wu, Michelle Obama's image is captured by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, who also shot inside photographs of President Obama for Vanity Fair magazine this month.
Michelle Obama On Fashion:
"First and foremost, I wear what I love. That's what women have to focus on: what makes them happy and what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful. If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion."
Although some have dubbed Michelle Obama the "new Jackie Kennedy" Vogue insists that Obama's style is more "pragmatism, not glamour."
