Last week while speaking to GOOP’s podcast with the company’s founder Gwyneth Paltrow.

“The whole concept of aging has just changed completely, even in the last 10 years,” Diaz, who shares a 2-year-old daughter, Raddix, with her husband Benji Madden, said.

“It’s totally opened up. I’m excited. Have got 50 or 60 years to go. I want to live to be 110, since I’ve got a young child.”

“I think you have this amazing moment in your 40s where you appreciate who your parents are. Want to have that moment with her be there with her in her 40s,” she continued.

Diaz also believed the genetics she inherited from her family would undoubtedly help make her wishes a reality.

“My family’s from sturdy stock,” she shared. “My grandmother was running around in the hot San Fernando Valley sun at 72, hauling big bags of rabbit feed and chicken feed around. I think I’ve got some of that.

She added, “And as is true for most people, I think how I look and feel is some combination of what I do and what I don’t do.”

Diaz also expressed her gratitude for the support she receives in life despite being “the oldest mom in my group of girlfriends with kids.”

“I’m lucky to be my age. Lucky to have those girlfriends, lucky to have my daughter, lucky to have all the support I do raising her,” she concluded.

Earlier this month, The “Mask” actress spoke candidly about the challenges and rewards of parenting during her appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

After telling host Kelly Clarkson that motherhood is “the best thing I’ve ever done in life,” Diaz also shared there have been times when she has lost her cool with her daughter.

During those moments when parenting can be frustrating, the star said she does her “mom checklist” and tries to understand what Raddix might be feeling.

“Did she eat? Is she tired? What time is it? When was the last time she ate? When did she nap? You just kind of start there, and you go, ‘What just happened? Is there something she’s trying to communicate to me?’ ” Diaz explained.

“And I feel like as a parent, my job is to just help her find the words to her emotions, her experience, what she’s going through and be able to help her identify that and move through it.”

Still, the Golden Globe nominee admitted that moments like these can be “challenging.”

She added, “But you know what’s also really imperative to repair. Like if you do blow up, just to repair that and say, ‘Oh my God, mommy lost her sh*t’ And, ‘I didn’t mean to say that to you. If I hurt your feelings or if I upset you, I just want you to know that mommy’s human too.’ ”
