Cameron Diaz used to be attracted to guys who wore make-up and liked rock music.
She is quoted by the New York Post newspaper as saying: ''As an adolescent in Long Beach, California, I loved Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, boy bands like Whitesnake, (so I liked) guys wearing make-up who did their hair and dressed flashy.''
It doesn't seem that Cameron's penchant for long-haired rockers lasted into her adult life.
It has been reported the blonde beauty is taking a break from dating on the advice of her close friend Gwyneth Paltrow because her romantic liaisons ''distract her''.
A source said: ''Gwyneth's sorted out everything from finances to hooking her up with her trainer. She has also forced her to swear off sex for a year, saying men distract her focus.''
The two actresses became close after the death of Gwyneth's TV producer father Bruce Paltrow in October 2002.
