Cameron Diaz's Quotes
- There were times when I'd go, "This outfit would look so badass with stilettos". You wanted those four-inch heels, those wrappy, strappy, show-off-your-pedicure shoes, but you couldn't do it. At the beginning of the scene it would have been fine because I'm just hanging out with the dude. But the next thing you know, you're kicking the dude's rear, so you had to make sure you had the right shoes on.
- I didn't realize it [The Mask (1994)] was a fairly large film that I was a part of. Halfway through I was going, "Is there any place that my mom and dad can see this film?" and they're going, "Cameron, at the theaters". I had no idea. Durrrrrrr. I'm blonde. I'm allowed.
- One thing I realized from Julia [Julia Roberts, her My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) co-star]--which I knew before, but was made very clear--is that when you're the star of the film, the crew looks to you to set the tone of everyday work. So when you come into work, whatever it is that you're giving off, that is what the tone is going to be for the working conditions.
- On Being John Malkovich (1999): "It's been said that in Hollywood there are only 14 different scripts. Well, this is number 15."
- Your regrets aren't what you did, but what you didn't do. So I take every opportunity.
Cameron Diaz: Supermodel Turned A-list Actress
Cameron Diaz is a California-born supermodel slash actress who became a household name in 1994 with her role in ‘The Mask’. The stunning blonde appeared on many magazine pages and fashion campaigns before transitioning into acting. With a net worth of $140 million, she became one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, continually delivering several box office hits and earning millions of dollars.
Early Life and Success
Born in San Diego on August 30, 1972, Cameron Diaz was raised in Long Beach, California. Diaz had a modest upbringing, and her mother worked as a retail salesperson while her father served as an oil company foreman. She often recounts how her family collected soda cans to make extra cash, and that $20 meant a lot to them.
Diaz started her modeling career at age sixteen when she signed with Elite Model Management. She modeled across the world, was featured on the covers of Seventeen Magazine and other publications, and did advertisements for Calvin Klein and Levi’s.
After five years of modeling, she stepped into the acting world and auditioned for a role opposite Jim Carrey in the 1994 comedy hit ‘The Mask.’ Despite having no prior experience in this field, she nailed the audition and landed the leading role. The movie went on to gross $340 million worldwide at the box office and turned Diaz into a star.
Cameron Diaz earned much of her fortune from acting and has some enviable salary highlights throughout her career. During her peak from 1998 to 2011, Diaz earned more than $160 million from film salaries alone. Her salary then hit $10 million as a bare minimum, and it reached as high as $20 million per film. Her $20 million movie paycheck put her in the company of a few other actresses who’ve broken the milestone.
For ‘Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,’ Diaz took home the highly impressive sum of $20 million. She made $17.5 million for ‘Gangs of New York’ and $12 million for ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ For the film ‘There is Something About Mary,’ which made $369 million globally, she took home $2 million.
In 2011, for her role in ‘Bad Teacher,’ Cameron Diaz took a massive pay cut and earned only $1 million upfront. The film had an unexpectedly huge box office success, grossing over $200 million globally.
Cameron Diaz’s career ran for more than two decades and culminated with her 2014 release ‘Annie.’ The actress confirmed her retirement from acting in 2018, confirming that she was happy with the spacious personal time her choices had allowed her. She had only acted in a voice-over role in the Netflix film ‘Pioneers’ after that, despite being offered multiple casting offers from producers.
Diaz has been very private about her love life, but her romances frequently played out in the media. She was in a long term relationship with actor Matt Dillon on and off for four years before they separated in 1998. Diaz then dated Jared Leto for three years and baseball star Alex Rodriguez for around one year before splitting in 2011. Diaz later met musician Beni Madden and began dating him in May 2014. They tied the knot in January 2015 in a private ceremony held in their Beverly Hills front yard location.
Cameron Diaz leads a low-key lifestyle, and she maintains a small but exceptional property portfolio. Her real estate investments are worth millions of dollars, including an impressive home in Beverly Hills estimated to be worth $14.7 million. She previously had owned an apartment in Greenwich Village, NY, and later a top-floor Greenwich condo between 2008 to 2013.
Cameron Diaz successfully ditched her modeling stint to become one of the most iconic actresses of her generation. With her stunning looks, hard work, and undeniable talent, Diaz single-handedly earned herself the right to demand millions per movie project. While she retired from acting, she has left behind a legacy that continually inspires young, upcoming actors. Her life serves as a motivation for younger dreamers who hope to achieve the type of success Cameron reached throughout her career.
