Happy Birthday Cameron Diaz!

Cameron Michelle Diaz was born on August 30th 1972 in San Diego, California. Starting out as a model from the age of 16, Diaz made it to our screens at the age of 22 staring in “The Mask” alongside Jim Carrey. She has since been cast in a diverse range of films from “Gangs Of New York” to “Shrek”, becoming one of Hollywood’s leading ladies.

In 2013 Diaz co-wrote “The Body Book” with Sandra Bark to promote healthy lifestyle. The great success of the book led Cameron to write another, this time discussing the somewhat taboo topic of ageing. The “Longevity” book attempts to end stigma surrounding getting older and gives readers an understanding of ageing at a cellular level. The outstanding successes of both books has made Diaz a Times Bestselling Author twice!

In 2015, Cameron Diaz married rocker and Good Charlotte frontman, Benji Madden. Their wedding was a small private affair in Cameron’s LA home. Diaz often accompanies her husband on tour with his band and sister-in-law, Nicole Richie.

1. The Other Woman (2014)

Our favourite Cameron Diaz film is this one. The chemistry between Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and Diaz evoked girl power in this movie. With an acting debut from Upton and Nicki Minaj, The Other Woman oozes a ‘Sex In The City’ vibe and just proves cheaters never win.
