Truth rating: 10

Cameron Diaz believes that being faithful is something we learn.

The Other Woman actress shares her controversial thoughts on relationships and monogamy in the May issue of InStyle.

“I don’t know if anyone is really naturally monogamous,” she tells the magazine. “We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it’s been ingrained in us to do these things.”

As for her own past relationships, Diaz is thankful for the journey.

“I’m 41 years old – I’ve been through everything, OK? I’m grateful for all of it – whether it was quick and passing or something that lingered too long,” she explains.

Diaz adds, “There is not one thing I’ve been through that hasn’t been a lesson that led me to this moment, and I can’t believe how great life keeps getting.”
