Cameron Diaz won't stop using her car to save the environment.
The 'Shrek the Third' star, who is due to appear at one of the Live
Earth concerts on Saturday, is too "selfish" to reduce her carbon
footprint. Cameron is quoted in new book 'The Green Book - The
Everyday Guide to Saving the Planet One Simple Step at a Time' as
saying: "I don't want to be running around barefoot, pushing my car
like Barney Rubble. I don't want to go back to the Stone Age. I
just want to maintain what we have for a long period of time -
forever. How nice would that be? I'm very selfish."
Last month, the actress came under fire for carrying a bag
bearing the political slogan of Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong
in Peru. The voice 34-year-old visited the Incan city of Machu
Picchu carrying an olive green bag emblazoned with a red star and
the words "Serve the People" printed in Chinese. The bags are
considered a fashion accessory in some parts of the world, but in
Peru it is a reminder of the Maoist Shining Path insurgency that
fought the government in the 80s and early 90s in a bloody conflict
killing almost 70,000 people. Cameron said afterwards: "I sincerely
apologise to anyone I may have inadvertently offended. The bag was
a purchase I made as a tourist in China and I did not realise the
potentially hurtful nature of the slogan printed on it."
