Cameron Diaz


Cameron says she learnt how to be independent from a very young age: ”I learned to do everything from a very young age. My parents were like, ‘You’re going to be yourself.’ So everything from doing the laundry, to cooking, to cleaning the entire house, scrubbing toilets, picking up the dog sh*t. And, things were done right. Everything was checked. It wasn’t fun, but my parents could have sold us when we were two or three and broken even … So we had to pay off!”

Freida Pinto

Freida enjoys embracing her own independence: “I’m an independent woman and I’m not afraid of expressing myself and enjoying my artistic freedom. It is very simple.”

Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole works hard so she can have her own freedom: “I work hard and I’m an independent woman. It’s important to be in control.I’m probably in one of the best places of my life. Life gets easier the more you’ve been through. I wasn’t able to always enjoy things because I worked too hard. Now I’m able to enjoy life, it’s awesome. And I have so many things I still want to accomplish. I always say, ‘I’m just getting started’!”

Salma Hayek

Salma enjoys having her own freedom: “I work hard, I make my own living and I love it. I like having financial independence. I don’t ever want to have to depend on anyone completely. But when I have troubles sometimes, it’s nice to have someone there to help.”

Zoe Saldana

Zoe has never relied on others: “I’ve always just been independent to a fault. I’ve always believed it’s my birthright to behave as an equal on this earth and to be entitled to everything and anything. That said, I’ve had my experience of heartbreaks when it comes to choosing partners who wanted to be equals bud didn’t have the ability to actually reciprocate the respect.”
