Cameron Michelle Diaz was born on the 30th August 1972.
Her breakthrough film role was in the Jim Carrey movie The Mask.
Instead of making big budget films she decided to learn acting by working in low budget films such as The Last Supper, Head Above Water and Feeling Minnesota.
Cameron is usually seen dancing in her movies and her star sign is Virgo
She kept her own with Julia Roberts and some would say stole the show in My Best Friends Wedding in 1997 and the next year appeared in the worldwide box office smash There's Something About Mary.
Cameron cemented her star status in Charlie's Angels and is the voice of Princess Fiona in the huge success that is the Shrek franchise.
Miss Diaz has earned praise for the recent film My Sister's Keeper and was fantastic in the film's Gangs Of New York and In Her Shoes.
Often coming across as a tomboy she loves surfing and always appears to be enjoying life to the full with a smile that can break a man's heart at ten paces.
Below are some of Cameron's quotes.
"Your regrets aren't what you did, but what you didn't do. So I take every opportunity."
"I grew up with a lot of boys. I probably have a lot of testosterone for a woman."
"I'm not 25 years old anymore, nor do I want to be. I wouldn't even want to go back to being 30. You know what I mean? That journey, I've done it already. I don't want to do it again. It's a lot of work to get through it, and I am excited about moving forward. I think that people get caught up in getting back to some place that they already passed or to a place where you cannot stay."
"What's changed from 10 years ago is that now I want a man who knows who he is. Someone who understands himself, has already dealt with his issues and who can say: "I see where I've been foolish before and I'm not going to be like that again."
"We have a voice now and we're not using it. Women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. If you think rape should be legal then don't vote. But if you think you have a right to your body and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote."
"What we women need to do, instead of worrying about what we don't have, is just love what we do have."
"I'm like every other woman: a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear: So I wear jeans."
