Cameron Diaz plans to take a break after filming the due-in-2009 legal drama “My Sister’s Keeper,” according to a new interview.

“I envision a full year off, just living life and having fun. It’s the best thing,” Diaz said in an interview in May issue.

In the interview, conducted before her father’s death last week, the actress revealed she has currently been going through a number of changes.

When asked about her romantic life, she avoided the question, instead focusing on what she has in store for the immediate future.

“I’m in love with love. I’m in love with life,” she told W. “This year I just sort of decided, you know, there’s a lot of things that I’ve been wanting to do and I’m going to do them.”

Among the goals Diaz has in store? Helping out a charity, although she declined to reveal which one.

“I’m not ready to talk about that yet because they’re not totally up and running and I don’t want to mess them up by talking about them too soon,” she said.

The star of “What Happens In Vegas” said she is also using her free time to embark on a voyage of self-discovery.

“(I’m) just kind of taking more time getting to know myself. It sounds so corny that I can’t believe I even just said that, but, you know, there comes a time when you really have to get to know who you are,” she said. “I’ve just been figuring out what interests me and spending time with people who are important to me and being present in my own life.”
