Film: South side of the 6700 block of Hollywood Boulevard
Actress
Born Aug. 30, 1972 in San Diego, CA

Cameron Diaz was a model and first-time actress when she costarred opposite Jim Carrey in the 1994 action-comedy “The Mask.” Just a few years later, the bubbly blond broke out in star-making performances in “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and the comedy smash “There’s Something About Mary” (Golden Globe nominee, lead actress) trading on her blossoming comedic skills and wholesomely sexy beauty.

The next year, Diaz’s transformatively dowdy turn in “Being John Malkovich” earned the actress her second Golden Globe nomination.

Diaz hit the stratosphere, however, when she signed on for roles in what would be two enormously lucrative franchises: the movie reboot of the iconic “Charlie’s Angels” TV series and Dreamworks’ animated tale “Shrek,” for which she would voice the ogre-marrying Princess Fiona in four consecutive installments.

She has also appeared in Martin Scorsese’s epic drama “Gangs of New York” and in comedies such as “The Holiday” and “What Happens in Vegas.”

In 2008, Forbes magazine named her Hollywood’s highest paid actress.
