She raised eyebrows earlier this year when she opened up about pubic hair in her new health manual Body Book.

But now Cameron Diaz has decided to set the record straight during an appearance on the Graham Norton Show, which will air on Friday evening.

She said: ‘I would like to clear up what I said. I don’t care what women do with it but we should be informed about how their bodies work.  It is there for a reason and to laser it off is to lose it forever!’

Grabbing director Richard Ayoade’s hair as a prop she added: ‘It will never come back and I think women should consider what forever means.’

Not surprisingly the topic of conversation left the other guests on the show – Kylie Minogue and Russell Crowe rather bemused.

Kylie, who of course is not a stranger to stripping off, looked rather bashful as the intimate topic was discussed.

In a section of her book called In Praise Of Pubes, the actress goes into graphic detail about maintaining the ‘lovely curtain of pubic hair’ that ‘surrounds that glorious, delicate flower of yours.’

‘I hear that there’s a big fad these days of young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits,’ Cameron writes in the self-help book. ‘Personally, I think permanent laser hair removal sounds like a crazy idea.’

She then goes into detail about the potential health benefits of remaining natural, before making the case that pubic hair is sexy.

Cameron describes the hair as a ‘pretty draping’ that is both ‘enticing’ and ‘mysterious.’

Kylie and Cameron did however bond when discussing the topic of relationships.

The pint-sized pop princess said: ‘I work a lot and I have a team, my people, and there are a few whispers down the corridor and it’s stuff like that.  It’s not vetting, but you kind of have to have your eyes open.  It’s as awkward for me as it is for anyone.’

Cameron, empathising with Kylie, said: ‘I try to keep everything discreet until I figure out whether or not it’s something I want to take into the world in any way.’

During the show Cameron also talked about her new film Annie, admitting: ‘I am terrified of singing and the day I went to meet the music coordinator I burst into tears and was hysterically crying.

‘When I did My Best Friend’s Wedding I didn’t try and stop the singing scene, but I was very reluctant.  I was sweating and it was like stepping out onto a cliff for me.’

Who cares! I highly doubt once in bed with a man, he sees a lady’s bush and zips his pants back up. If so, he’s no man at all.
