Hitmaker: Cameron Diaz

Here’s a brand new – awesome – Q&A/interview with Cameron Diaz by the Hollywood Reporter. She talks about My Sister’s Keeper, future projects and more. Check it out below!

Since her first film role in 1994’s “The Mask” opposite Jim Carrey, Cameron Diaz has been become one of Hollywood’s most successful leading ladies, entertaining audiences in such quirky comedies as 1997’s “My Best Friend’s Wedding” and 1998’s “There’s Something About Mary” and earning street cred in such dramas as 2001’s “Vanilla Sky” and 2002’s “Gangs of New York.” In 2003, Diaz struck salary gold, becoming the third Hollywood actress after Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon to receive a $20 million paycheck — for “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.”

Her latest film, the New Line drama “My Sister’s Keeper,” teams her with Jason Patric, Abigail Breslin and Alec Baldwin in a different kind of role: Portraying a mom who goes to extreme measures to keep her leukemia-stricken daughter alive. Diaz may soon be reunited with Tom Cruise, her “Vanilla Sky” co-star, in James Mangold’s action film “The Wichita Project”; and she’s attached to the Zach Braff-directed comedy “Swingles,” currently in development. Just before receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the native San Diegan spoke with The Hollywood Reporter’s Noela Hueso.

My Sister’s Keeper in theaters today!

It’s finally here! Today is the day! At last! Okay, I think that is enough. But I’m so excited over the fact that My Sister’s Keeper is released in cinemas today (for US, UK, Canada and Mexico residents, that is)! I can’t wait to see this film, especially to watch Cameron Diaz as the mother Sara. Be sure to go out and see it at your local theater and then let us know what you thought!

My Sister’s Keeper currently holds a respectful 67% fresh on RottenTomatoes.com. Read what some of the critics have said about Cameron’s performance below.

“Diaz gives one of the best performances of her career as the ‘villain’ of the piece, an uncompromising fighter.”
Orlando Sentinel

“Cameron Diaz goes against type in a beautifully executed dramatic role, which changes her game and probably will change her career.”
Monsters and Critics

“Nothing Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric have ever done prepared me for their emotionally charged performances as the parents of three children coping with death in diverse ways.”
The Observer

“Cameron Diaz, as the devoted mother Sara, does a fine job in what is her most successful dramatic role to date.”

Movie Rumor: Peaceable Kingdom

Here’s a new movie rumor surrounding Cameron Diaz! According to IMDb.com (though they aren’t always a reliable source), Cameron will star in Nick Cassavetes’ – yes, that is the director of My Sister’s Keeper – next film. It’s called Peaceable Kingdom, and is based on the true life and work of Dame Daphne Sheldrick‘s efforts to preventing elephant extinction in war-torn Kenya. It’s a drama, penned by Jeff Stockwell (Bridge to Terabithia), with Mandalay Pictures‘ Cathy Schulman and Peter Guber producing.

In an article from February this year, they mention an early fall start date for the movie. However, Cameron has already confirmed that she will be starring in the yet untitled James Mangold project (aka Wichita) which will begin production in September.

Either she isn’t going to be in Peaceable Kingdom at all, or they have worked the schedule around Cameron. Hopefully it’s the latter, as I would love to see more dramatic roles for her. Only time will tell. Stay tuned!

Cameron’s motherhood role is a big-screen Keeper

usatoday2009_001Here’s a new, very interesting, interview with Cameron Diaz, Sofia Vassilieva and Abigail Breslin, courtesy of USA Today. They talk about My Sister’s Keeper, Cameron playing a mother and more. Read it below. Enjoy!

Cameron Diaz is having a mommy moment.

The notoriously private actress finds herself the first to arrive for a joint interview to promote her new film, My Sister’s Keeper. And co-star Sofia Vassilieva is nowhere to be found.

After 20 minutes, Diaz stops the interview to call Vassilieva.

“Honey, I’m just checking on you,” Diaz says, straining for patience. “I was worried about you. Are you almost here?”

She has no immediate plans on being a mother, but Diaz is getting the knack of playing one.
