A TRIPLE: After playing it safe on the covers of Marie Claire and Vogue recently, Cameron Diaz is exposing her edgier side in the new issue of V magazine. The premise behind the shoot, which was inspired by True Blue-era Madonna, is how Diaz “toughens up,” by taking on challenging new roles and abandoning her golden-girl image. (Diaz currently stars in “My Sister’s Keeper” as the mother of a teenage girl who’s dying of cancer). For the V cover, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott photographed a tattooed Diaz wearing Prada shorts and boots with a pointy bra, made from gaffer tape. The issue hits newsstands Tuesday.
