Actress Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz biography


Cameron Diaz was born on August 30, 1972, in San Diego, California, USA.

She might have stepped out of the limelight but she is still adorable.

They say first impressions last, and the first time I ever saw Cameron Diaz was her impressive entrance in The Mask.

She made such an impression that she merits a few bits and bytes on my website. Cameron Diaz grew up in Long Beach, California, with her Cuban-American father, who was a foreman, and her broker mum. Cameron's mother resulted from German, Native American, and English heritage.

Her parents took Cameron everywhere; she was a head-banging party-going kid as a child. "I was a tough kid with the jeans, the concert shirt with the flannel over it, the comb in the back pocket, and the feathered hair" Her Mother supported her love of heavy metal music and even accompanied her to her first Van Halen show. At a Hollywood party, she got her big break when she was approached by a modeling agency.

Diaz took up their offer and, at just 16, was off to live in Japan with a girlfriend. Her mixed life in high school and modeling meant Cameron didn't work that much. At 19, with a comfortable career and apartments in Paris and Los Angeles, she landed the dream role in "The Mask."

Although she had no acting experience and did not have the dancing or singing skills required to play the role, she breezed through her 12 auditions. She shot to stardom with that entrance and her "excuse me, where I can open an account?" first line.

Cameron was out to prove to the critics that she was not a bimbo who had a fluke with The Mask and chose a low-budget film as her next project. "The Last Supper" was also a success, as have all her films since. "I did the Last Supper simply to get the opportunity with other actors; I never had any acting experience other than The Mask."

When the script for Feeling Minnesota came along, Cameron Diaz did not jump at it, not reading the script until the last minute. Her lazy attitude worked, and she landed the role opposite Keanu Reeves, ahead of 70 other actresses. The part was another opportunity for Cameron Diaz to display her acting skills and prove to the world that she wasn't another model using just her body to make it.

Her next film, "She's the One," was unsurprisingly another hit. It was a follow-up to "The brothers McMullan" and starred Jenifer Aniston of 'Friends' fame. Cameron then starred in a lead opposite Harvey Keitel in "Head Above Water."

From the Mask to "She's The One," Cameron Diaz has won many admirers and was voted 3rd in the FHM 'Sexiest Woman Alive' award last year.

Cameron does not want to be known as just a sex symbol. Cameron Diaz has turned down roles in 'bimbo' films and instead settled for the arty parts, which has been a successful career move. However, the two films set to launch her to superstar status were her latest two, "My Best Friends Wedding" and "A Life Less Ordinary."

A Lifeless Ordinary sees her star in a film from the famous "Trainspotting" team, proof that this girl is as versatile as they come. The fact is that Cameron Diaz is a serious actress with vast potential, and she will continue to light up the screen.
