Biography
Born on August 30, 1972, in Long Beach, California, Cameron Diaz grew up in the typical fashion of any all-American girl -- except, of course, for the fact that she was an exceptional beauty.

Cameron's dad, Emilio, a Cuban-American, was a foreman at a California oil company. Her mom, Billie, who's German, English and Native American, was an import-export broker. Cameron Diaz was raised in Long Beach with her sister Chimene.

As she was growing up, Cameron Diaz was, like most girls, listening to modern music and acting wild. And by her mid-teens, Cameron Diaz began attending Hollywood parties and staying out until the wee hours of the morning. It was during this party phase of her life that Cameron Diaz met a well-connected man who would change her whole life.

Jeff Dunas spotted Cameron Diaz while she was out one night and told her that he could sign her up with the Elite modeling agency. Although Cameron Diaz initially thought his proposition was somewhat fishy, she took his card and discussed it with her family and friends.

After leaving Long Beach and traveling around the world as a model, appearing in magazines like Mademoiselle and Seventeen, Cameron Diaz returned to California at 21 with thoughts of acting on her mind.

After receiving rave reviews for her performance in The Mask, Cameron Diaz set out to perfect her acting skills by steering clear of potential blockbuster hits and focusing on low-budget films such as The Last Supper (1999), Feeling Minnesota (1996), which costarred Keanu Reeves, and Head Above Water (1996), in which she played Harvey Keitel's wife.

Once Cameron Diaz felt that she reached her acting acme, she returned to big-budget films like My Best Friend's Wedding (1997), in which she starred opposite Julia Roberts. It was at this time that The National Association of Theatre Owners acknowledged her string of movie triumphs by naming her the ShoWest Female Star of Tomorrow.



That same year, she hit the silver screen once again in A Life Less Ordinary, starring opposite Ewan McGregor.

But the film that really turned Cameron Diaz into a household name was her iconic role in There's Something About Mary (1998), which costarred Ben Stiller and Matt Dillon. The film not only catapulted her stardom, but it also gave Cameron Diaz her first publicized relationship as she began dating Dillon; the relationship lasted for nearly three years.
