Dating someone who has an identical twin can put you in some difficult situations. For some folks hooking up with twins is one of their biggest fantasies. The one question that people who have never dated a twin probably have, is how you can cope with being attracted to your significant other’s identical twin? They look exactly the same, how can you be attracted to one and not the other? Well, Cameron Diaz finds herself in this tricky situation. She recently explained though how she’s actually not attracted to Joel Madden, the brother of her husband Benji.
Their First Encounter
Diaz recently went on the “Anna Faris Is Unqualified” podcast. Things got romantic during her conversation with Anna and Katherine Power, Diaz’s business partner. Diaz recalled the first time that she met her now-husband. From the way that Diaz remembers it was love at first sight! She remembered that first encounter saying,
“I saw him walking towards me, and I was like, ‘Huh, he’s hot, I haven’t seen him before.'”
Katherine Power though was not letting Diaz off the hook that easy. She was the one to question Diaz’s love at first sight story. Saying what everyone else in the room was thinking she’d met his brother. How was there no love at first sight with Joel?
She Met Her Husband Through Her Now Brother-in-law
Apparently, Cameron and Benji’s story is one of love at first sight. However, Cameron was familiar with Joel Madden. It was actually through him and his wife Nicole Richie that Cameron met Benji in the first place. Diaz mentioned that it wasn’t like Joel and Nicole played matchmakers to set her up with Benji. However, presumably, she was friends with the couple and that got her an invite to the event where she met Benji. She mentioned,
“I met mine through my now sister-in-law and brother-in-law, I met them first and then they didn’t set us up but we were in the same room because of them, and then we found each other,”
Not Attracted To Joel At All
After getting that remark from Katherine Power that she’d met Joel. Which, sort of undermined Cameron’s love at first sight story Diaz would go on to share that she doesn’t believe her husband and his brother are too much alike. Just from looking at pictures of them together though it is kind of hard to tell them apart. She’s managed it though! In talking about her husband and his brother Diaz mentioned,
“They’re not the same, they’re so different,” Diaz said. “Even though they’re twins, they’re very, very different obviously.”
Still On Hiatus From Acting?
Acting is potentially not in the cards for Cameron Diaz anymore. She very publicly stepped away from her former professional a couple of years back. That doesn’t mean that she’s just your typical stay-at-home mom. She’s actually a very active entrepreneur and writer. She started a business called the wine company Avaline; she’s also written a couple of wellness books. Could we see her back on the big screen soon? From the looks of things, she’s done with the acting world for good. Never say never though!
