Cameron Diaz On Girl Power: 'That's The Best Way To Get Through Things—Leave It Behind'
The ample advertisements, trailers and press junkets for the upcoming movie The Other Woman depict it as an empowering version of the now-irrelevant rom-com. As a sort of foil to popular bromance flicks like I Love You, Man and Pineapple Express, The Other Woman tells the story of three ladies—Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton—who are seeking revenge on their shared, cheating boyfriend, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
But it's less of a Prince Charming chase than it is a Lean In book club—and girl power is something Diaz's character, a sleekly styled lawyer, showcases in spades. "I think that we really wanted to show that women are there for women—that that's what we do," Diaz told Vogue UK. "We help each other through, and the best thing you can do in this situation is just move on and forget about it. That's the best way to get through things. Leave it behind."
Now that's a Sheryl Sandberg-approved sentiment if we've ever heard one. The Other Woman hits theaters nationwide on Friday, April 25—we'll be in the front row taking notes.
