Top Of The Food Chain

Background:

Having been linked with famous celebrities Justin Timberlake and Matt Dillon, Cameron Diaz does not need the added publicity. She is stirring up moviegoers all by herself.

Adored in the delightful Shrek and Shrek 2 blockbusters as the voice of Princess Fiona, Cameron has also kept fans happy with highly noticeable roles in films such as Charlie's Angels, Being John Malkovich (1999), My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) and of course, the dream girl Mary Jensen in There's Something About Mary (1998).

This lovely blue-eyed blonde has carved her name among the stars and is currently on the top of the food chain as one of the highest paid female actors in the industry, reportedly earning such whopping salaries as $10,000,000 for the Animated Shrek 2 and $20,000,000 for Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Although Cameron has earned a reputation for being late, bets are... that most people are willing to wait.

"Your regrets aren't what you did, but what you didn't do. So I take every opportunity." Cameron Diaz

Virgo Beauty

Childhood and Family:

Cameron Michelle Diaz was born in San Diego, California, on August 30, 1972. The Virgo beauty followed older sister Chimene to complete parents' Emilio (Cuban, oil foreman) and Billie's (Native American, Italian and German mix, exporting agent) small family. Cameron attended the Long Beach Polytechnic High School in Long Beach, California.

In the 1998 movie, There's Something About Mary, Cameron's father, Emilio, would be given a small part as a Jailbird.

"I have to remind my dad: Journalists, no matter how many cigars they smoke with you, are not your friends, so don't talk to them." Cameron Diaz

"I was the tough kid with the jeans, the concert shirt with the flannel over it, the comb in the back pocket, the feathered hair. It was frightening." --Rolling Stone, August 22, 1996

Fresh Appeal

Career:

At age 16 Cameron Diaz left her parent's home to spend the next 5 years traveling to countries such as Australia, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, and Paris, while pursuing a modeling career.

"Believe me, you can get into a lot of trouble being sixteen years old in a foreign country with no adult telling you when to come home." Cameron Diaz

After returning to California, Cameron's first role in a major film came as the character Tina Carlyle in 1994's action comedy, The Mask, starring Jim Carrey. Several movies later: The Last Supper (1995), She's the One (1996), Feeling Minnesota (1996), Head Above Water (1996) and Keys to Tulsa (1997), Cameron found herself cast as Kimberly Wallace in the delightful romantic comedy My Best Friend's Wedding, starring alongside Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney and Rupert Everett. A Life Less Ordinary (1997) and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) soon followed before the screen hit, There's Something About Mary (1998), starring Cameron, Matt Dillon and Ben Stiller, was released. This role raised her celebrity status to one of Hollywood's sexiest, most sought out after, actresses.

Roles tumbled in. Cameron acted in such films as: Very Bad Things (1998), Being John Malkovich (1999), Any Given Sunday (1999), Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her (2000), Charlie's Angels (2000) and The Invisible Circus (2001). In 2001 the instant successful animated romantic adventure, Shrek, was released. Diaz's voice thrilled moviegoers as the Princess Fiona, the love interest of the green ogre Shrek (voice, Mike Myers). Starring in more features, such as Vanilla Sky (2001), Gangs of New York (2002) and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003) kept her career buzzing and in 2004, Cameron returned as Princess Fiona in the wonderful Shrek 2.

Cameron owns a fresh appeal that audiences crave. She can be seen in the upcoming features: In Her Shoes (2005), W.A.S.P.S. (2005) and Shrek 3 (2007).
