According to the London Evening Standard, Cameron Diaz was among the guests at a fundraising dinner for President Obama’s re-election campaign at Mark’s Club in Mayfair yesterday. The event was hosted by US Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Gwyneth Paltrow and designer Tom Ford, and other guests included Downton Abbey’s Elizabeth McGovern, American athlete Allyson Felix and Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet. About 25 guests were seen heading into the venue for the dinner party, which is believed to have cost around £9,200 a head. Members of the press were not allowed to attend. Cameron Diaz looked pretty in pink in a jumpsuit as she was photographed arriving to the event. As we don’t post paparazzi-images in our gallery, we’ve only featured a photo of a stunning Cameron Diaz to the right. What do you think of her look for the night? Cool, right?
British newspaper The Sun reports that Cameron Diaz recently shot a sex scene with actor Javier Bardem for The Counselor. According to a source on set, they filmed it on the bonnet of a yellow Ferrari at Stoke Park golf course in Buckinghamshire, England. An ex-SAS squad and dog unit were apparently carefully positioned around the course and in the trees to ensure passers-by or fans couldn’t see what was going on. Modesty screens were also put up around the set for the midnight shoot on Tuesday. According to the same source “it was like a military operation. Producers had thought of everything to stop any intruders possibly getting a glimpse.”
According to British newspaper/tabloid The Sun, Cameron Diaz has a cheetah as a pet in The Counselor, and actually became friends with the large cat as well. A source told the magazine: ”When Cameron first started working with the cheetah it was strutting about like it owned the place. But now she’s wearing the trousers. It has taken a shine to her, which is good because they’ve had to shoot a number of scenes together, including a set-up where they shared a bed.” While there was a risk of Cameron getting bitten by the dangerous animal, there were handlers on hand at all times to supervise what was happening. Producers were also worried about damage to Skywood House in Middlesex, Southern England – a modernist home designed by architect Graham Phillips – the big cat could potentially cause. The source added ”the specialist animal handlers have been close by in case the cheetah gets a bit carried away. The building is pristine and the furniture is worth a lot of money, so the potential is there for it to do a lot of damage.” The Counselor is a drug dealer drama which also stars Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. It’s based on the screenplay by Cormac McCarthy, and directed by Ridley Scott.

Cameron Diaz, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey, Jr., Robert De Niro and Tom Cruise were among the movie superstars who gathered at Paramount Studios’ fabled Lot 18 for an eye-popping ‘class’ photo to celebrate the film Mecca’s 100th birthday. Photographer Art Streiber shot the star-studded group snap for Vanity Fair and admits he was cool, calm and collected until DiCaprio arrived. He recalls, “He looked up at the stage and he said, ‘This is epic’.” And the magic moment wasn’t lost on Charlize Theron: “There are moments in your life where you find yourself in circumstances where you just have to pinch yourself. I got to rest my hand on Harrison Ford’s shoulder, while Steven Spielberg was standing next to me – not too shabby.”
In total 116 superstars and movie executives turned up for the once-in-a-lifetime shoot, photographed on the soundstage that housed the Star Trek TV and movie franchises. Streiber admits it was a great opportunity to reunite some co-stars: “There were a lot of people who hadn’t seen each other in years.”
With a new year comes a new look for our favorite girl. Cameron Diaz was spotted on Hawaii yesterday, showing off her new haircut while hanging out on the beach. It’s even shorter than it was late last year, and platinum blond as well. It kinda has a There’s Something About Mary/Charlie’s Angels-vibe to it, don’t you think?
Cameron reportedly spent New Year’s Eve on Hawaii with friends; also including a swim with dolphins. What do you think of the new cut? Do you miss the long hair or is this a fresh new change suiting the new year? Sound off in the comments.
