Cameron Michelle Diaz (born in 1972) is an American actress and former model. She became famous during the 1990s with roles in the movies The Mask, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and There’s Something About Mary. Other high-profile movie credits include the two Charlie’s Angels movies and voicing the character Princess Fiona for the Shrek series. Diaz received Golden Globe award nominations for her performances in the movies There’s Something About Mary, Being John Malkovich, Vanilla Sky, and Gangs of New York.
She modeled for designers such as Calvin Klein and Levi’s. When she was seventeen years old she was featured on the front cover of the July 1990 issue of the magazine Seventeen.
At age 21, Diaz auditioned for the movie The Mask, even though she had no previous acting experience, based on the recommendation of an agent for Elite who met the film’s producers while they were searching for the female main actress. After obtaining the main female role, she immediately started acting lessons. The Mask became one of the top ten highest grossing films of 1994, and earned Diaz nominations for several awards.
During the next three years, she had roles in low-budget independent films, such as The Last Supper (1995), Feeling Minnesota (1996), She’s the One (1996), Keys to Tulsa (1996), and A Life Less Ordinary (1997), preferring to feel her way effectively into the business. She was scheduled to feature in the film Mortal Kombat, but had to resign after breaking her hand while training for the role.
She returned to mainstream films with the major movie successes My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997) and There’s Something About Mary (1998), for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the category of Best Actress — Musical or Comedy. She received critical acclaim for her performance in Being John Malkovich (1999), which earned her Best Supporting Actress nominations at the Golden Globe Award, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards). During 1990–2000, Diaz featured in many movies, such as Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her, Very Bad Things, Any Given Sunday, and the successful adaptation of Charlie’s Angels. During 2001, she won nominations for Best Supporting Actress for the Golden Globe Awards, the SAG Awards, the Critics’ Choice Awards, and the American Film Institute Awards for Vanilla Sky, and also voiced Princess Fiona in the movie Shrek, for which she earned $10 million.
During 2003, Diaz received another Golden Globe nomination for Martin Scorsese’s epic Gangs of New York, and became the third actress (after Wedding costar Julia Roberts) to earn $20 million for a role, receiving the sum for Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. Her next movies were In Her Shoes (2005), and The Holiday (2006). She was preparing to work again with The Mask co-star Jim Carrey for the film Fun with Dick and Jane, but resigned to feature in In Her Shoes. Diaz reportedly earned $50 million during the period of a year ending June 2008, for her roles in What Happens in Vegas opposite Ashton Kutcher, and the Shrek sequels. In 2009, she starred in My Sister’s Keeper and The Box.
During 2010, Forbes Magazine ranked Cameron Diaz as the richest Hispanic female celebrity, ranking number 60 among the wealthiest 100. Also that year, Diaz was cast as the female lead in a live action/animation hybrid film version of The Smurfs, and as well as voicing Princess Fiona for the movie Shrek Forever After, also reunited with her Vanilla Sky co-star Tom Cruise in the action/comedy Knight and Day, and on the 14 January, she played “Lenore Case”, the journalist in the remake of the 1940’s film, The Green Hornet. She was listed among CEOWORLD magazine’s Top Accomplished Women Entertainers.
Now the 38-year-old is starring in Bad Teacher, quaffing liquor, dropping F-bombs and giving the degenerates of The Hangover a run for their debauchery, at a time when the tides of taste appears to have turned.
Case in point: The sleeper hit Bridesmaids, a female-driven “anti-chick flick” that grossed more than $100 million in its first month of release. Bad Teacher’s fortunes may reveal whether Bridesmaids is a fluke or if the glass ceiling has truly been shattered.
“Women have always behaved badly. I think probably worse than men. Maybe men just don’t have the stomach for it. They don’t want to see it on film because they just can’t take it,” Diaz says. “Any of my guy friends, when I tell them what women really talk about, they don’t want to hear it. But maybe it’s time ” People are willing to laugh at those things.”
Opening Friday, Bad Teacher stars Diaz as Elizabeth Halsey, a foul-mouthed, hard-drinking public school educator desperate to get breast implants so she can sink her claws into some unwitting sugar daddy.
