    Cameron Diaz has opened up on her love life.

    Cameron Diaz says there’s something about not being married.

    In a new interview for Playboy, the actress downplayed a rumored relationship with Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez and dished on her dynamic with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

    "No, no, no,” Diaz said when asked if she and A-Rod were “an item.”

    “I've been in relationships since I was 16 years old,” Diaz explained. “I've made a conscious decision not to be in a relationship for as long as I want.”

    Keeping single means staying “away from all the traps,” according to Diaz, who added that she “can’t even count the times” she’s hopped on a plane to pursue a lover.

    Speaking of one ex-lover in particular, Diaz told Playboy that working with Justin Timberlake on the set of the film “Bad Teacher” wasn’t a problem.

    "We're adults,” Diaz said. “Of course we could work together. It's been three years since we broke up.”

    Diaz, who has been romantically linked in the past to her "Something About Mary" co-star Matt Dillon and actor Jared Leto, said she’s “evolved” from her old relationships.

    She described her style as"primal on an animalistic level, kind of like, 'Bonk me over the head, throw me over your shoulder. You man, me woman.' Not everybody has the right kind of primal thing for me...I love physical contact. I have to be touching my lover, like, always. It's not optional."

    And don't confuse love and sexuality because there's a difference, Diaz said, using her own sexual orientation as an example.

    “I can be attracted to a woman sexually, but it doesn't mean I want to be in love with a woman,” Diaz said. “If I'm going to be with a woman sexually, it doesn't mean I'm a lesbian. We put these restraints and definitions on people, but it's hard to define."

    Diaz is set to appear in the upcoming films “Knight and Day” and “The Green Hornet.”
