NSFW WARNING: This scene contains some highly adult material in the form of cussing and nudity. Watch at your own risk.

Cameron Diaz has been in some questionable scenes in her career. One scene that she is always connected with is in There’s Something About Mary, where she takes some bodily fluids off Ben Stiller and uses it as hair gel. You can probably guess what that is. Also, the scene in Charlie’s Angels where her clothes are ripped off is one that many remember in vivid detail. Though most of them have been hilarious in nature, there is one particular scene that made everyone scratch their heads in confusion. That scene is from The Counselor, which happens to be one of the final films Diaz appeared in before she retired from acting. The scene shows Diaz straddling a Ferrari and having sex with it. Yes, you read that right. You can see the scene in the above video.

Cameron Diaz takes on the role of Malkina in The Counselor, who is a stripper that is now dating Reiner (Javier Bardem). Malkina tells Reiner to pull the car over, and she then straddles the top of it while basically having sex with the vehicle. It is a strange scene that absolutely went too far. It also didn’t quite make sense to the grander plot of the film. We know that Reiner and The Counselor (Michael Fassbender) get into business with one another. Also, Malkina has her own selfish means and power moves in the film but straddling a car doesn’t quite make any sense. We know that drug dealers and their compatriots are meant to look seedy in the film but having sex with a car is just odd. If we are being honest, Ferraris are fantastic-looking cars too, but this scene was certainly a head-scratcher.

The Counselor follows a lawyer that goes by his namesake of The Counselor. The Counselor attends a party thrown by Reiner and Malkina (Cameron Diaz), where they discuss their first drug deal with one another. Reiner then leads The Counselor to meet Westray, an associate of the cartel that The Counselor is going to be in business with. Westray tells The Counselor about the massive amount of money he will make from the deal but warns him that the people he is getting into business with should not be screwed over. After Malkina hears about this deal, she then makes her own plans to steal the drugs. She employs a man known as “The Wireman” and they successfully steal the drug shipment, leaving The Counselor to know the answer to the cartel. Without ruining the rest of the film, it can be streamed on HBO Max right now.

Despite the high-profile cast for the movie which includes Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt, and Rosie Perez, the film didn’t make much of a mark. The film holds a poor 34% critic approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with an even less 23% audience rating. This flop could have been one of the reasons that pushed Diaz into retiring. We are not saying that the above scene was the one that led her to step away, but we would imagine the scene made a ton of people not buy into this film. Diaz was only part of four other films after that before stepping away in 2014. She is set to return to acting, as she is teaming up with Jamie Foxx for a film called Back in Action.

The Counselor was a success on paper, but the cast was not placed in the best place to succeed in this film. Again, we are not saying the Ferrari sex scene was the sole cause of this movie flopping, but it likely did not help. Again, there is no reason for Cameron Diaz to straddle a car and have sex with it. It was an odd anecdote that didn’t exactly do anything for the character of Reiner. However, we know that everyone interprets stories differently, so you can all watch the above video to determine if the scene went too far. Even better is that fans of Diaz and the rest of the great cast mentioned can go watch the movie right now on HBO Max. Decide for yourself if that scene and the movie are a flop, or if it’s just art.
