Hollywood actor Cameron Diaz, who will turn 40 in August, says she is excited about her reaching the four-decade milestone. "I love getting older. I think it's such a blessing. Look, the alternative to getting older is being dead, so I feel very fortunate to have a very full, loving, blessed life, so, I'm living it to the fullest," Diaz said. "As I get older, I become happier - because I'm wiser, I know myself better and I connect to people better," she said.
