cameronland.jpgThis screams ‘reality’ television! Has Cameron Diaz been comparing notes with Elizabeth Hurley? I’m starting to see a trend in celebrities declaring sabbaticals from the Hollywood scene in an effort to get back in touch with the Earth. Diaz is the latest to join such a following.

Star Pulse is reporting that Cameron “is set to shun Hollywood glamor for a life in the county – the beauty wants to live on a farm. Diaz, who is currently starring in The Holiday with Kate Winslet, is planning to give up the stressful environment of making movies for a year and loves the idea of uprooting to the country with boyfriend Justin Timberlake.”

Yeah, right. You mean a country villa retreat ala Oprah, right? Would they really be roughing it; growing veggies, producing a sustainable garden, and raising their own livestock, would they? Apparently so.

“I’d really like to live on a farm for a whole year. I want to be there, in the one place, and go through the whole 12-month span growing my own food, milking cows and living off the land. I want to do the whole thing properly. I just love being outdoors. I thrive on it.”

Will Justin and Cameron retreat to a little farm for one year? Will we see them up at 5am tending to the animals and working the fields? Probably not. But if they need some help when they get sick of the whole thing, we’ll be here waiting. Can we bring Internet?
