Cameron Diaz is so environmentally friendly she doesn't always flush after going to the toilet
Cameron Diaz doesn't flush the toilet.
The 'My Sister's Keeper' actress does all she can to be environmentally friendly, and believes it is a waste of water to pull the chain every time she has relieved herself.
She said: "I do follow the, 'If it's yellow leave it mellow, if it's brown flush it down' saying. I believe in that 100 per cent.
"But there are a couple of rules. You can't go more than two or three times, if it's consecutive, if you're drinking a lot of water, without flushing. But if you have coffee or something, it's going down!"
The 36-year-old actress - who drives a Toyota Prius, a hybrid electric car - has been interested in green issues since she was a child, and credits her parents with making her environmentally aware.
She explained to US TV talk show host Jay Leno: "It's one of those things that is just a lifestyle choice. I was brought up that way so it's something that I automatically do. I'm rigged that way."
