Cameron Diaz might be a celebrity, but she’s putting the spotlight on real women for her next book.

On Friday, the 43-year-old actress posted a selfie on Instagram and asked for women to submit portrait-style photos of themselves—50 of which will be used on the cover of her upcoming book slated for release in April. She also posted how to submit in an entry on her book’s website.

She writes, “And as we diligently put the finishing touches on the book, we’d like to ask for your help once more. This book is for you and about you and that’s why we’d like to see you on the cover.”

This isn’t the first time that Diaz has turned to her fans for help. Earlier this year, she solicited questions about longevity and aging. She was curious to hear about the challenges they faced, both physically and mentally. 

In terms of the book’s art, she did something similar with her 2013 effort The Body Book, where all kinds of women were featured on the cover. While at first glance it looks like it’s just the blonde celeb up close and personal, that’s just the jacket of the book. The women featured were on the actual hardcover. According to Diaz, that will be the situation for her next book as well. And while The Body Book displayed full-length shots, she’s looking to have portraits in her upcoming project to go along with the book’s ethos. 

Submissions are open until Nov. 20, and the 50 women selected to be the cover will also get a signed copy when it hits bookstores. The possibility of getting a little time in the spotlight with 49 other women and an autographed book from Diaz? Sounds like the sweetest thing
