A tall, strikingly attractive blue-eyed natural blonde, Cameron Diaz is the daughter of a Cuban-American father and an Anglo-German mother. Self described as "adventurous, independent and a tough kid," Cameron Diaz left home at 16 and for the next 5 years lived in such varied locales as Japan, Australia, Mexico, Morocco, and Paris.
Returning to California at the age of 21, she was working as a model when she auditioned for a big part in The Mask. To her amazement and despite having no previous acting experience, Cameron Diaz was cast as the female lead in the film opposite Jim Carrey. Over the next 3 years, Cameron Diaz honed her acting skills in such low budget independent films as The Last Supper; Feeling Minnesota; and Head Above Water.
She returned to mainstream films in My Best Friend's Wedding, in which she held her own against veteran actress Julia Roberts. She earned full fledged star status for her performance in the box office smash There's Something About Mary. With her name near the top on virtually every list of Hollyood's most beautiful actresses, and firmly established as one of filmdom's hottest properties and most sought after actresses, Cameron Diaz possesses everything necessary to always be a box-office queen.
