EXCLUSIVE FEATURE: Celebrity Review: Cameron Diaz


Artist: Cameron Diaz

Career: Film Actress/ Model

Cameron’s Persona:

Spunky, feisty and funky; she is one sexy blonde we all love so much. Who wouldn’t like a charismatic personality topped with dazzling blue-eyes and an infectious smile? She oozes a perfect blend of style and attitude with a cool and hip quotient, that manifests in her modelling as well as in her onscreen chemistry with male co-stars. Besides being incredibly gorgeous and stunning, she looks impulsive and natural, totally at ease flirting with the camera. That is why, in spite of having that goddess-like beauty, she still holds that “girl-next-door” charm. 

In her modelling career, stretched over a long period, she has worked with top designers such as Calvin Klein and Levi’s while working with top modelling agency Elite, and appeared as a cover girl for many prestigious fashion magazines such as GQ, ELLE and FHM, to name a few. She is also one of those female stars who have not shied away from flaunting their perfectly toned body and has given numerous shots  in bikini, both in films and magazines.
Oh-so-proudly embracing the mantra, "if you have got it, flaunt it!"
She has appeared in top rankings many times in FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World” list as well as topped Maxim’s “Hot 100 of 2005” list. She was also chosen by People’s magazine as one of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World”. With all the glitz and glamour of stardom, she comes out as a down-to-earth and fun loving girl with a carefree attitude. In one of her interviews, she was quoted as saying, "I'm like every other woman: a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear: So I wear jeans."  

Cover Girl, Cameron! 

   Cameron’s Acting:

Apart from tall, lean and highly desired athletic body which made her a sought-after model, she has proved her immense talent in acting. Yes! She is a beauty with brains! Appearing as the leading lady in her debut movie, The Mask (1994), opposite none other than Jim Carrey, she convinced the moviemakers that she had the potential to become a superstar. And she was right!

She not only became the second highest paid actress (after Julia Roberts) who received a whopping sum of 20 million dollars (for Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle) but also one of the most successful and “in-demand” Hollywood film actresses in next few years. Even after working in tons of movies over the years, among which most of them have been super hit films, she is still going strong. Well, her fan base is huge so we can safely say that this diva is absolutely enjoying the perks of being a celebrity!

She has become the heart throb of millions with her flirtatious and sensual moves. Yes, you guessed it right! I am talking about her dancing shots, which are seen in almost every movie (I don’t think I need to remind you all, about that girl dancing seductively in The Mask).

She starts to deliver one hit after another, picking diverse roles to showcase her versatile acting, from sweet rom-com There’s something about Mary (1998) to funny action film, Charlie’s Angels (2000). Her other noteworthy work comes as the voice of Fiona in animation film series, Shrek.

We witnessed a lot of growth in Cameron as an actress with more mature, performance-oriented roles in movies such as, In her Shoes (2005) and My Sister’s Keeper (2009). Now, after her recent films, “Knight and Day” and “The Green Hornet” have crashed miserably at the Box Office; she refuses to give up and prepares to woo the audience once again with her ready-to-release comedy film, “Bad Teacher (2011)”. The trailer looks promising, but we still need to wait a little, before deciding its fate at the Box Office. Flop or hit, one thing is for sure, her loyal fans will keep on waiting desperately for Cameron, to ignite the silver screen once again with her magnetic presence.

Overall, while she cannot be compared to highly respected actresses in the industry like Meryl Streep, she clearly passes the test for being one of the “good” actresses among contemporary heroines. Just one very obvious suggestion for Cameron: There is always room for improvement! So, if you are thinking to stick around for further couple of years in the industry, you need to bring back the spark that was felt in “The Mask”! Re-invent yourself!

Review Girl Rating: 8/10

Review Girl’s Top 5 Cameron’s movies:

My Best Friend’s Wedding
In this classic romantic comedy, Diaz plays Kimberly, a rich girl going to marry a guy who has pretty strong ties with his best female friend, Julianne (played by Julia Roberts). Diaz gives a strong performance as a supporting actress against leading lady, Julia Roberts.

Charlie’s Angels
Diaz stars as one of the three “Angels” who work as private investigators for Charlie, a mysterious millionaire. She performs some kick-ass action scenes, to keep her male fans happy.

In Her Shoes
Diaz plays the role of younger sister Maggie, in this drama based on two sisters, who have nothing in common except their shoe size. A very special movie on sibling bond and family relationships!

The Holiday
In this warm-hearted and loving tale of two lovelorn women who temporarily exchange houses to escape heartbreak in the holiday season, Diaz plays a Los Angeles trailer editor who finds love in idealistic Surrey setting. This is my favourite movie of Diaz and if you are one of those who think that Diaz can’t act, then please watch this flick! I am sure you will change your opinion!

What Happens in Vegas
Diaz plays the character of a New York stockbroker Joy, who gets dumped by her fiancé and goes to a trip to Las Vegas, where things get crazy and out of control. The movie is a laugh-out-loud comedy with a bit of romance.


  1. I like Diaz's sense of comic timing in films.

  2. @Catherine: Yes, so do I! What is your favourite movie of Diaz?
