London, (ANI): Actress Cameron Diaz says she makes fun of herself to make sure that people are not intimidated by her celebrity status. The 37-year-old star admits that she often relies on her goofy antics to make sure her new acquaintances aren't 'scared" of her.
"Hey, I love to make people laugh. That's the way I've always made myself comfortable around other people and how I make people feel comfortable about me," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Vogue magazine. “Because the truth is I am famous, and some people are intimidated by that. I've honed this skill very well over the years. I make fun of myself first. So people don't have to worry about being scared of me.
"I don't want to say I dumb down, because I don't think I'm an idiot: it's about keeping it simple. And it's about manners. Because it's hard to go deep with people straight away," she added.
