Cameron Diaz

Green really is the colour for Cameron Diaz. Her big-screen debut was alongside Jim Carrey’s green-faced anti-hero in Te Mask, she’s had repeated success playing Princess Fiona (the green ogre) in the Shrek films, and she’s starred in the action movie Te Green Hornet.

The Hollywood star’s colourful career.

It seems to be a winning formula for the former model. As one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood she’s certainly made plenty of greenbacks. But it isn’t just money that motivates Cameron to give a project the green-light. “I can read 40 scripts and they can all be huge movies that will make me tons of money, but if it doesn’t speak to me, I’m not going to do it.” It’s enough to make you green with envy!

In the box-office successThe Green Hornet, Cameron plays Lenore “Casey” Case. She’s the secretary and love-interest of Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) - aka crime-fighting superhero The Green Hornet. Cameron’s character is that of an amateur detective with a love for TV shows such as CSI. So, she’s sure to be involved in some actionpacked scenes, which is no problem for the daredevil actress. Apparently, she was so impressed with Tom Cruise’s dangerous stunts in the action adventure Knight and Day, that she said, “I want to do that. I want to fly through the air. I want to fight. Give me some action scenes!” Later, she added, “I love getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up, I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher.”
