Cameron Diaz is commenting on her nude scene in Columbia Pictures' comedy film "Sex Tape," in which she and Jason Segel co-star as married parents who make a private sex video and then accidentally upload the video. According to a CNN report on July 1, 2014, Diaz had this to say in Esquire's August 2014 issue about getting naked in the movie: "It's a first for me. But Jason [Segel] gets naked, too. It's just a part of the role. So I did it. I mean, you see everything."

"Sex Tape" opens in U.S. and Canadian theaters on July 18, 2014. The August 2014 issue of Esquire goes on sale on July 8, 2014.

Segel is no stranger to nude scenes. He famously had a full-frontal nude scene in the 2008 comedy "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," his breakthrough movie. Diaz and Segel previously worked together in the 2011 movie "Bad Teacher."

Although "Sex Tape" has Diaz's first nude scene in a mainstream movie, there have been rumors for years that before she became famous, she made an X-rated video. In 2006, Diaz was "awarded an undisclosed amount in her civil lawsuit against a photographer who took topless photos of her when she was 19 and not yet famous – and then tried to sell them back to her for $3.5 million in 2003," according to a People magazine report. There are rumors that video footage of that racy S&M-themed photo shoot exists and Diaz has allegedly gone to great lengths to keep that video from becoming public. Diaz did not comment on the lawsuit or X-rated video rumors in the Esquire interview.

Diaz, who is 41, told Esquire that she feels comfortable about her age: "I like being 41. I love it. So much sh*t just falls away. Fear, mostly. It's the best age. That's when a woman knows how to work things, or she doesn't care about that anymore. You just stop being afraid. You don't worry about what men think. You just don't worry that time registers anything awful."

She also told Esquire that she has no regrets about not getting married or having no kids: "It's so much more work to have children ... Not having a baby might really make things easier, but that doesn't make it an easy decision. I like protecting people, but I was never drawn to being a mother ... Right now, I think, things are good for me. I've done a lot. And I don't care anymore."

Diaz (a former model who made her movie debut in 1994's "The Mask") has had high-profile romances with several celebrities over the years, including Matt Dillon, Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake, Alex Rodriguez and Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden. She co-starred with Dillon in 1998's "There's Something About Mary" and with Timberlake in "Bad Teacher." In April 2014, while promoting her movie "The Other Woman," Diaz said in a "Watch What Happens Live" interview that she might be bisexual, since she admitted that she has "been with a lady." She declined to name her female lover or say when they got together.
