Cameron Diaz

Cameron Michelle Diaz (born August 30, 1972) is an American actress and former model. She gained fame in the 1990s with roles in the blockbuster films The Mask, My Best Friend's Wedding, and There's Something About Mary. Other notable film credits include Charlie's Angels, and voicing Princess Fiona in the Shrek series. Diaz received Golden Globe nominations for her performances in There's Something About Mary, Being John Malkovich, Vanilla Sky, and Gangs of New York.

Personal life

Diaz in June 2007

Diaz received "substantial" defamation damages from suing American Media Incorporated, after The National Enquirer had claimed she was cheating on then-boyfriend Timberlake.

In 1992, Diaz appeared in a soft-core S&M video entitled "She's No Angel" shot by photographer John Rutter. In 2003, she won an injunction against Rutter preventing him from distributing the video or accompanying photographs, but in 2004, the video was distributed online through a Russian website.

When Diaz was asked if she can speak Spanish she said:

"I go, 'God, you know, it all sounds so familiar. I know what you're saying, I really do. I just cannot respond to you back in Spanish. I can barely speak English properly.' I didn't grow up in a Cuban community. I grew up in Southern California on the beach, basically. And I'm third generation. I'm of Cuban descent."

She was vocal in her support for Al Gore in 2000. Diaz wore a t-shirt that read "I won't vote for a son of a Bush!" while making the publicity rounds for Charlie's Angels.

Diaz has also been involved with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the first and largest nonprofit for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, and has spoken as an advocate for military families.[citation needed]

Although she was quoted in a 1997 Time magazine article saying she was germophobic, Diaz specifically denied this on the June 26, 2009, edition of Real Time with Bill Maher, saying that a small comment she made 12 years earlier regarding public bathroom doorknobs was blown out of proportion.

On April 15, 2008, her father, Emilio Diaz, died of pneumonia, aged 58.

In 1995, she began a relationship with actor Matt Dillon, with whom she co-starred in There's Something About Mary and broke up with in 1998. She then had a relationship with singer/actor Jared Leto from 1999 to 2003. Diaz dated singer Justin Timberlake from 2003 to 2006. In October 2004, Diaz and Timberlake were in an altercation with a tabloid photographer outside a hotel. When the photographer and another man tried to photograph them, the couple snatched the camera. Pictures of the incident appeared in Us Weekly. Representatives for the pair claimed that they were acting out a scene on a set. As of July 2010, Diaz has been in a romantic relationship with New York Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez. Lately, she has been seen with him again.


At 16, she began her career as a fashion model. Diaz signed with top modeling agency Elite Model Management. For the next few years, her modeling took her around the world, working for contracts with major companies. She modeled for designers such as Calvin Klein and Levi's. When she was seventeen she was featured on the cover of the July 1990 issue of Seventeen magazine

Why is She famous

There's always been something about Cameron Diaz. An instant babe to all of us from the time she lip-synched her first note to Jim Carrey in The Mask, she became one of Hollywood's most desirable and sought-after women by playing a desirable and sought-after woman to great comedic effect in There's Something About Mary.

After becoming a star across the genres of live-action comedy, animation (the Shrek series), quirky indie (Being John Malkovich), and action (Charlie's Angels), Cameron Diaz has found herself in a bit of a career funk these days. While she's continually busy and considerably wealthy, it seems like she's still mostly thought of for movies that came out over 10 years ago? If there's ever been a time to change that perception, it's now, if crazy Tom Cruise and geeky Seth Rogen have anything to say about it.

Her career is always sizzling, and Cameron Diaz is set to star alongside Colin Firth in the upcoming film “Gambit.”
The sure-to-be spectacular movie will be directed by “The Last Station’s” Michael Hoffman with the script re-penned by Joel and Ethan Coen.
In the upcoming picture, Firth will play a London art curator who plans to con a wealthy collector into buying a phony Monet painting.
He enlists a Texas steer roper, whom will be played by Diaz, to pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.
Filming is scheduled to begin in London this May.

Prior to her long-standing romantic relationship with Timberlake (a constant source of tabloid fodder and speculation), Diaz was alternately linked, offscreen, with actor Matt Dillon, actor Jared Leto (to whom she was engaged for a time), and video producer Carlos De La Torre. She has never married, and according to some sources, never has any intention of marrying. In August 2004, however, she caused an enormous media stir when she turned up alongside Timberlake at Disney's Magic Kingdom in Orlando -- wearing what appeared to be a massive gold band with a diamond on her left hand; the couple denied that it was an engagement ring. The very same situation recurred in January 2005, when Diaz (sporting the same jewelry) and Timberlake popped up at the Los Angeles restaurant Angelini Osteria. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
