Cameron Diaz is the latest person to hop onto the trend of simply not eating at times in order to stay slim.

In speaking to Gwyneth Paltrow during a GOOP interview, the "Shrek" actress praised "intermittent fasting."

"It's worth it – it helps you stay mindful about what you're putting in your body," she said. "We all start off in a great place, but it's easy to end up getting further and further away from the place that's your optimum."

In addition to short-term fasting, Cameron, who shares daughter Raddix with husband Benji Madden, said she cuts back on calories by not munching.

"I'm the mother of a two-year-old, so we're both having a little of this and a little of that, and do I need to be snacking as much as she is all day?" she said. "Doing a little reset kind of brings you back. It helps you be more present in the moment, staying aware of what you're saying and what you're doing."

Having essentially retired from acting, Cameron has been able to focus on her well-being in multiple ways, noting that she rarely wears makeup anymore.

"I've been wearing make-up every day for most of my life, because of work, and it was really depleting to my skin. I always had a breakout," she said. "And since I stopped wearing a lot of it, in my 40s – obviously I'm older, too, but I was getting breakouts well into my 40s – I like my skin much better."

Earlier this year, the "Something About Mary" star spoke about rejecting Hollywood beauty standards

"I am absolutely a victim to all of the societal objectifications and exploitations that women are subjected to," she told "RuPaul's Drag Race" star Michelle Visage. "I have bought into all of them myself at certain times. It's hard not to, it's hard not to look at yourself and judge yourself against other markers of beauty." 

Despite having "a billion [beauty] products," Cameron said she "never" even washes her face. 

"Twice a month if I'm lucky, I'll be like 'Oh, I better put this on. One time works, right?' Like is that all I have to do? I'm just not in that place right now like where I put any energy," she said, noting her main focus these days is to "stay strong."
