Diaz recently opened up about being over the hill in Esquire UK. "For the first time in my life, I'm content," the single star said. "I'm so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I've ever known. I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever. And as far as the physicality of it -- I feel better at 40 than I did at 25."
