Cameron Diaz has denied ever claiming that she thought women should have multiple partners rather than one monogamous relationship, explaining that those are the views of her ‘The Other Woman’ character Carly.

The actress made her comments during an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, where she was joined by her co-stars Kate Upton and Leslie Mann.

Keen to clarify her comments, Cameron said: "My character says she doesn’t believe in monogamy and then somehow journalists were like, 'So, you don’t believe in monogamy'."

"I’m like, 'That is my character. My character said that. That’s not me. You know I’m acting right?'"

In actual fact, Cameron does think monogamy is vital for a relationship to be successful.

"Monogamy is a very, I think, important part of relationships working, absolutely,” she stated.

It was previously reported that Cameron had hinted that multiple partners could be a good thing, reportedly telling the Daily Mirror: "For some reason, we get into relationships and we expect one man to understand ‘all’ the parts of us and meet all of those needs. I think that’s where everything fails.”

The three leading ladies have become good friends since filming the movie together and Kate, who is making her acting debut in the movie, praised her co-stars.

"This is my first movie role and these two supported me every step of the way,” she said.

Cameron also speaks positively about her co-stars and recently told Huff Post UK: “We were in it together. We have each other’s backs.

“You move through it and it’s almost like you have these extra parts of yourself.

“If one part of you isn’t functioning very well, you can always ask the part that is functioning to add a bit, so that’s good!”

The actress has also spoken out about her choice not to have children, declaring that she doesn’t consider herself as “a spinster who never had a child”.
