There’s something about…Cameron. Cameron Michelle Diaz (born August 30, 1972) grew up, as she puts it, “in Southern California on the beach, basically.” She wasn’t born into the entertainment business — her father worked more than 20 years maintaining and supporting oil wells, and her mother worked as an import-export agent — but she was well on her way into it by the age of 16, when she began her career as a fashion model, contracting with modeling agency Elite Model Management.
By 17, she was on the cover of Seventeen (here’s the cover); by 21, she was starring in movies (her first was The Mask in 1994).
Since then she’s either starred in or voiced (in Shrek) more than 30 films, like Vanilla Sky, one of my favorites of hers (she played that psycho), and In Her Shoes (LOVE!), opposite Toni Collette.
If you’re ever in the mood for a fun, physical comedy, check out Knight and Day. Not because I think it’s an Oscar-caliber movie, mind you, but because I think it’s just a lot of fun.
I’ve always liked her casually sexy approach to hair. It’s very easy, very California girl (she’s an avid surfer), with mostly unstructured styles. It seems to suit her well.
Right now she’s starring in Bad Teacher, which I’m thinking about seeing tomorrow night (have you seen it yet?).
Lawd knows I had a few of those! 🙂
