I will never forget when I first saw her in The Mask with Jim Carrey, I was on Jury Duty and was seated in the waiting area and they had the video on for our amusement, she was the highlight of the film, at least for me.
I continued to follow her career post that, she was also the highlight of the Julia Roberts starer My Best Friend's Wedding, sorry Julia your character was such a mid section with a capital C word that, really, who the Hell would marry your selfish ass?! Cameron's character was by far the more charming of the two of you.
Of course there is the classic There's Something About Mary and a personal favorite the critically vilified The Sweetest Thing with Christina Applegate and Selma Blair. Who could not love the dick song?!!!!!!
Well Cameron has a new one coming out, Sex Tape on July 18th with the equally funny Jason Segel. I can't wait for these two to pair again as they were so amaze balls together in another fave of mine Bad Teacher.
"I love it," Diaz says "So much s– just falls away. Fear, mostly. It's the best age. That's when a woman knows how to work things, or she doesn’t care about that anymore. You just stop being afraid. You don't worry about what men think. You just don't worry that time registers anything awful." - she recently told Esquire Magazine
Of note, she strips down in Sex Tape, marking the first time she's been completely nude on screen.
"It's a first for me. But Jason Segel, (who co-stars) gets naked, too. It's just part of the role. So I did it. I mean, you see everything."
You Go Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl!
Forty is awesome with Cameron Diaz at:
