Born in 1972 in San Diego, Cameron Diaz left home at the young age of 16 living in places from Australia to Paris to Japan until returning to California at the age of 21.
Once in California, Diaz worked as a model until scoring her breakout role opposite Jim Carrey as the female lead of The Mask. She spent the next three years playing roles in lower key independent films until gaining her next lead role alongside Julia Roberts in My Best Friend’s Wedding. Just one year later Diaz starred in the hit There’s Something About Mary—the last of the three roles that set her name in stone as one of Hollywood’s top actresses.
Recently Diaz undertook the role of Princess Fiona in Shrek in 2001 and Knight and Day co-starring Tom Cruise in 2010. With roles in over a dozen Hollywood films, it’s safe to say that Cameron Diaz is one of America’s hottest and most talented actresses.
