Diaz made headlines over the years for her high-profile romances with stars including Jared Leto and Justin Timberlake, but the actress is in no rush to settle down despite her early dreams of domesticity.

"I thought I was going to be married and have two children by the time I was 21. I think I felt I had to model my life after my mother's. But then my career was starting to take off and there were still so many things I wanted to do.

So that dream for me was shattered early on. After that I never put another timeline on anything in my life. "I am sure a lot of people would expect that I would have had a child by my age.

But it is not what I have wanted out of my life thus far. There is a box people put themselves in, and when you live outside of it, that makes them uncomfortable, they have to look at themselves and question their own choices," she said.
