Cameron Diaz is one of the most famous actresses and models. The American blonde has become famous for her roles in many popular movies. Her real breakthrough was participation in the film "The Mask," an excellent creative tandem with Jim Carrey that was very successful.
Since that time, the best directors have become interested in the services of a promising start, the beauty's fees have increased several times, and many loyal fans began to follow her every step. Today we will tell you the most interesting facts about the actress's biography, career, and personal life.
1. The birth in the family of an emigrant
The baby was born on August 30, 1972, in the sunny town of San Diego, located in the southernmost part of the state of California (near the border with Mexico). The girl's father (Emilio Diaz) was born in the USA but had Cuban roots. It was from the pope "inherited" that Cameron received a Latin American surname.
In appearance, she is similar to her mother (Billy Diaz), whose parents were from Germany and the UK. The family lived in abundance, Emilio worked in a well-known oil company, and Billy was a sales agent.
2. Interesting character
Cameron was different from her peers. She spent a lot of time with her older sister Shimen, with whom she listened to rock music, wandered around the city with guys, and was also not afraid to use her fists in an argument. The girls maintained a good relationship with their mother. The family often attended Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne concerts.
3. California childhood
The town of Long Beach has become home to Diaz. A picturesque place on the Pacific coast is recognized as one of the world's largest ports; significant oil deposits and large American enterprises are based here. At Long Beach Polytechnic High School (where rapper Snoop Dogg studied with her), Cameron led an active social life; she regularly attended parties and various events.
4. Plans for a future career
Although the girl was not a model of a dynamic character and liked to drink alcohol in high school, her hobby was very calm. As a teenager, she spent much time with pets, caring for birds, cats, and dogs, and even dreamed of working as a zoologist.
5. Fateful party
An active social life allowed Diaz to become part of the modeling business. But it all started small; the beauty met a young photographer Jeff Dunas at one of the parties. His offer to participate in a trial photo shoot was not the usual way to meet a beautiful girl; the guy invited her to work in the Elite modeling agency. For the first couple of months, there was no talk of a severe career yet, but many well-known brands became interested in Cameron's services after a while.
6. The first serious contracts
Although the beginning of Cameron's career had a semi-professional character, the rapid success forced her to concentrate entirely on the modeling business. At 17, she began to travel the world to participate in Calvin Klein and Levi's shows. The undoubted breakthrough was her appearance in 1990 on the main page of Seventeen. A couple of months later, the American went on her severe first business trip to Australia. In this country, she spent a couple of months where she starred in photo shoots for Coca-Cola.
7. Scandalous photoshoot
In 1992, the twenty-year-old beauty starred in an S&M underwear commercial. The photoshoot was intimate; the blonde flaunted topless in the frame. These pictures were never published in magazines. Harmless photos later played a cruel joke. A couple of years later (when Diaz had already become famous as an actress), photographer John Rutter offered Cameron to buy resonant videos and photographs for a couple of million dollars.
The woman considered such a statement blackmail and wanted to file an application against the extortionist in court. Still, it was impossible to hide the information completely; in 2005, scandalous materials surfaced on the Internet. As a result, Rutter was sent to prison for three years.
8. Trying to establish in a new field
The movie "The Mask," released in cinemas in 1994, allowed Cameron to become a national favorite. And it all started very spontaneously: the film's producers invited the beauty to come to the casting, as she fit perfectly into the concept of a pretty singer from the club. Thus, after a successful audition, the role in the comedy was given to a girl who had previously had nothing to do with the world of cinema.
The model began to actively attend acting classes, which turned out to be the right decision (her game was quite successful). This film became one of the highest grossing in 1994.
9. Next steps
As a result of the success of The Mask, Diaz decided to focus on acting. In just one year, she has been approved for the lead role in the following films: Feeling Minnesota, The Last Dinner, and How to Stay Afloat. Film critics highly appreciated the film "Best Friend's Wedding," considered one of the highest quality romantic comedies. The girl demonstrated her potential in work “Everything is crazy about Mary.” For this role, she was nominated for a Golden Globe film award.
10. Huge fee
The film adaptation of the famous series of the seventies of the twentieth century, "Charlie's Angels," brought considerable profits to the producers. Cameron played the role of a girl who, along with her partners, works in a private investigative agency. During filming, she earned about $20 million. Before her, only Julia Roberts was able to achieve such success.
11. Hostage of the image?
The movie star most often played mostly comedic or romantic roles, so many mistakenly consider her a performer of exclusively the same type of roles. The filmography of the actress is very diverse and multifaceted. She managed to star in several serious works.
Among them are "Gangs of New York" (where the girl appeared in the frame paired with DiCaprio), "Vanilla Sky," and "Being John Malkovich." These pictures are considered the most successful in a movie star's career because, thanks to these roles, the blonde was nominated for the Golden Globe every time. The excellent game of the American can also be seen in the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
12. Looking for a soul mate
Hollywood beauty is precarious in the process of searching for a soul mate. Many famous personalities were her companions. In 1995, Diaz dated American actor Matt Dillon. Her next star choice was Jared Leto. Although the partners managed to get engaged, the union broke up after a couple of years.
In 2003, the girl began to appear in public with Justin Timberlake. With her young man, the model got into a scandalous situation that happened to the photographer. The annoying paparazzi, who wanted to get exclusive pictures, were attacked by the famous singer. Photos of this disassembly appeared in many well-known publications. Between 2010 and 2011, the blonde lived with baseball star Alex Rodriguez.
13. Family life
Musician Benji Madden (the guitarist of Good Charlotte) announced his union with the actress in early 2014, and after a while, he proposed to his beloved. The wedding ceremony took place at their home in Beverly Hills. The formalized union was a big shock for Diaz's loyal fans, as she spoke in an interview about the uselessness of the institution of marriage. At the moment, it is known that the forty-five-year-old celebrity is expecting her first child.

What are the top 10 funniest Hollywood movies of all time?
This is top of the best Hollywood movies in the comedy genre, which, even if they don’t make you laugh, will definitely cheer you up for the whole day. Here you can find romantic stories, family pictures, trash action movies, crime detectives. These movies talk about serious topics in a light and casual way. It makes you think about life with all its inconsistencies, absurdities, and vicissitudes of fate. And these movies show that you can not give up. It’s better to put on a smile on your face, grit your teeth and try to think positively, even if you have to spend the rest of your days in the airport terminal or barely have enough money for a bar of chocolate.
10. In Jazz Only Girls (1959)
The comedy in "In Jazz Only Girls" was released in 1959 - for its time it was bold, if not revolutionary. Hollywood was just beginning to move away from the old code of ethics - for example, it was simply impossible then to joke so much about sex or “force” a character to behave frivolously. And here the men dress up in women's clothes, and the woman allows herself obscenities.
Not to mention the fact that one man, an eccentric rich man, is not embarrassed that his other half is also a man. Everyone has their flaws, remember? The authors of the movie, director and producer Billy Wilder, along with screenwriter Easy Diamond, took a big risk, but it was worth it. Almost all phrases are disassembled into quotes, the song “I Wanna Be Loved by You”, performed by Marilyn Monroe, seems to be known to everyone, and the episodes where the heroes of Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon portray two modest ladies in public cause laughter even now.
9. Airplane (1980)
The farcical comedy "Airplane" is a parody of all disaster movies at once. There is no one to control the plane - the crew took hostage ... an eating disorder, and a simple guy has to sit at the helm. Helps him beloved (she is a stewardess) and the mysterious Dr. Rumek. For Leslie Nielsen, the role of a doctor who, no matter how stupid he does, keeps a serious face, has become a landmark.
Previously, he played dramatic roles, and in the "Airplane" everyone saw his talent as a comedian. The movie earned back its tiny $3.5 million budget in its first days of release. In total, he earned 150 million, which was a surprise for the creators - test screenings were held without much enthusiasm. "Airplane" is found in all the ratings of the leading publications, and most often it is in the top three of the best comedies. Empire considers "Airplane" to be "pure, quadruple-cleansed comedy at the rate of three hilarious jokes per minute, the perfect blend of surrealism, wit, parody, and inspired physical gags."
8. This is Spinal Tap! (1984)
Together with the movie "This Is Spinal Tap!" the term mockumentary appeared. The definition came into use thanks to director Rob Reiner. He called his movie "mockumentary", emulating the word "rockumentary", which refers to documentaries about the life of rock stars. The characters in Reiner's movie are members of a heavy metal band. The camera follows them everywhere - to the stage or a party, to a rehearsal, or on a tour bus. "Spinal Tap" lets you get really close.
For example, they give interviews in the bathroom, do not drive the operator away in the midst of a scandal with a girlfriend, and do not hide irritation due to failures. The audience laughed, seeing in the heroes the features of famous rockers, known for their ridiculous, and sometimes inadequate behavior. The energy of "Spinal Tap" turned out to be so strong that it broke out, beyond the screen: after movieing, the "group" still performed in concerts, and a few years later recorded two albums.
7. Groundhog Day (1993)
Groundhog Day is not a classic comedy where it's funny just because the hero does something stupid or gets into a ridiculous situation. What's going on with meteorologist Phil Connors, when you think about it, isn't fun at all. Bill Murray's character is stuck in a time loop. He cannot leave the small town where he came for work to find out the groundhog's "prediction" about when spring will come. Every day is a damn February 2nd.
But the reception of repetition gives rise to laughter. And the main character himself is a charming cynic, now and then releasing witticisms. Not surprisingly, the movie did well at the box office. It lasted 18 weeks on the screens in the USA (of which 7 were in the top ten), the budget (about $ 15 million) beat off in the first four days and at the end of the year became the 13th in North America in terms of fees. But the American movie Academy "Groundhog Day" left even without nominations. As a result, the movie has only one big prize - the British BAFTA for the screenplay.
6. Annie Hall (1977)
The Annie Hall movie has all the elements of Woody Allen's signature style. The protagonist (played by Allen himself) is an intellectual grumbler who would like to enjoy life but is forever tormented by its imperfection. The action takes place in New York, the director's hometown. The dialogues are funny, but by no means superficial, there are many of them, and even everyday topics suddenly get a philosophical turn.
It was thanks to this picture that Allen was no longer considered just a director of the comedy genre - the public appreciated the emotional depth of the story. The movie earned $ 40 million at the box office (and this is with a budget of 4 million!) And received four Oscars - for best movie, best screenplay, best director, and for the main female role played by Diane Keaton here. By the way, the real name of the actress is Hall, and Annie is her nickname.
5. The Hangover (2009)
The original title of Todd Phillips' movie is Hangover. "Hangover". And the characters are powerful. They don’t remember at all what happened yesterday: where the tiger and the baby appeared in their hotel room in Vegas, and where the friend, for whom the bachelor party was started, disappeared. As a result, the guys go through a tricky quest to deliver the sidekick to the wedding on time. The movie's team showed remarkable ingenuity to make all these crazy moves around Vegas look fresh, original, and, most importantly, hilariously funny. The work was rewarded. The Hangover grossed almost $470 million, making it the tenth highest-grossing movie of 2009 and receiving two sequels.
4. Home Alone (1990)
A boy pressing his hands to his cheeks and screaming furiously is definitely one of the most recognizable images in cinema. Folk love covered little Kevin (and the performer of his role Macaulay Culkin) as soon as he appeared on the screens. In 1990, the movie became a hit at the box office - it earned about $ 480 million and took second place at the end of the year, losing only to "Ghost" with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. But even now, when the comedy "Home Alone" is broadcast on TV, it is simply impossible to switch. Although you know in advance what other set-up the guy has prepared for the thieves who made their way into the house.
3. Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979)
For the unique style used by British comedians from the Monty Python group, the Oxford Dictionary even has a special word Pythonesque. It means surreal humor. Often rude, it is based on illogical comparisons and deftly balances between boorish stupidity and wit. "Monty Python" intelligently ridiculed ignorance and hypocrisy, all sorts of cliches, a rigid view of things. Their sketches from the television show Monty Python's Flying Circus, which ran from 1969-to 1974, are still quoted today. We owe the term “spam” to Monty Python – in one sketch, comedians played up an intrusive canned food advertising campaign by using the word more than 100 times.
It is this comic group that is considered to have had the greatest influence on contemporary Western satire. Sacha Baron Cohen, creators of the sitcoms The Simpsons, Rick and Morty, and South Park draw inspiration from the sketch group. Monty Python's Life of Brian, in which one eccentric guy is mistaken for the messiah, is a poignant combination of dark humor and political satire, coupled with religious jokes. Not everyone liked the movie: for example, it was banned from showing in several countries. But only this did not prevent him from eventually appearing regularly in the selections of the best comedies in the history of cinema.
2. Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Atomic Bomb (1963)
Dr. Strangelove was released at the height of the Cold War, just fifteen months after the Cuban Missile Crisis when the world was still at its breaking point. Therefore, one can imagine what effect the picture had, where a paranoid American general suddenly decides to launch a nuclear attack on the USSR. Stanley Kubrick was able to accurately convey the feeling of fear of a global catastrophe, which everyone then shared. And since the director worked in the comedy genre, he was able to show the irresponsibility and stupidity of those who have access to the "red button" in the form of a poisonous satire.
1. Blazing Saddles (1974)
"Blazing Saddles" is a daring parody of all the classic westerns at once, the authors of which created myths about the Wild West in their works. Here the sheriff is the only black among the white population. He must "deal" with dodgy businessmen who planned to completely demolish the city in order to build a new railway line. The Oscar-winning movie by the great comedian Mel Brooks is a satire on the eternal ills of society - racism, corruption, greed. As Vulture writes, "Most movies fail to portray the enduring truth about race, gender, tribalism, politics, friendship, and flatulence and with a tenth of the guts or brilliance of Mel Brooks's best movie."
Who made the best comedic duo in movie history?
Gerard Depardieu and Pierre Richard
It was in the West, in capitalist France, that Gerard Depardieu first became known as the favorite actor of the experimenter Bertrand Blier (Waltzing, Cold Appetizers). The Soviet public fell in love with him first of all as a member of the bright duet Richard-Depardieu, who was born in the comedy The Unlucky. Against the backdrop of a clumsy, stupid loser with a shock of curly hair, Depardieu looked strong, tenacious, and self-confident gentleman. Meanwhile, in life, everything was exactly the opposite. The first grew up in a respectable bourgeois family. The second, before discovering his acting talent, stuttered and made a living ... prostitution.
Seth Rogen and James Franco
They work in pairs so often that it's time to make a separate top 10 of their joint projects. The main feature of the duet, which was formed at the end of the last century on the TV series Freaks and Geeks, is a complete disregard for cultural taboos, which leads one part of the public into wild delight, the other into an equally wild rage. After a story about a couple of stoners ("Pineapple Express"), they showed the world what an apocalypse is at the Dream Factory ("End of the World 2013: Apocalypse Hollywood Style"). And immediately entered the world stage, releasing a comedy about the assassination of the current North Korean leader ("The Interview"). Kim Jong-un was so upset that Barack Obama himself had to intercede for the moviemakers.
Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry
The collection of hilarious sketches The Fry and Laurie Show, in which the actors make fun of Santa Barbara, Cold War movies, and conservative politicians, was watched by fans of subtle British humor literally to holes. The comedy series "Jeeves and Wooster" - an exemplary movie adaptation of Wodehouse's stories - has been studied both in translation and in the original voice acting. But Fry and Laurie, despite the requests of the fans, still can not get together to work on the next joint project. A couple of years ago, they almost decided on a new show in which Fry promised to tell funny stories, and Laurie - to sing songs while sitting at the piano. But for three years now there has been no rumor or spirit about this idea. The next reunion of British actors will most likely happen in the cartoon "The Canterville Ghost", where they should voice the main roles. Well - thanks for that.
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels
In 1994, when the audience got acquainted with "Dumb and Dumber", it seemed that bigger idiots than Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels could not be found in all of Hollywood. The legendary comedian Harold Lloyd, after whom their characters (actually, Lloyd and Harry) are named, had to be spinning in a coffin non-stop since the release of the movie. The heroes of this truly idiotic comedy dreamed of opening a store selling worms traveling around America in a wool-covered car with ears and fought an equal fight for the title of the dumbest guy on the planet. It turned out, oddly enough, not only funny but also profitable. What can not be said about the sequel, which appeared twenty years later, when the audience forgot how to see in Carrey only a comedian, a show-off, and a prankster.
Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger
Tired of the image of the dim-witted bodybuilder who, as Robin Williams joked, says few more words on screen than the Scottish Collie Lassie, Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to try his hand at the comedy genre. So the Schwarzenegger-DeVito duet was born, woven according to the principle of "unity of opposites". One is a relief jock almost two meters tall. The second is a bald fat man from the category "meter in a jump." Therefore, a brief description of "Twins", their first joint movie work, could be enough to break into a wide smile: DeVito and Schwarzenegger play brothers in the movie, who were born as a result of a not entirely successful experiment of geneticists.
