For the past week, Cameron’s been back in Los Angeles from filming The Counselor in Spain – and isn’t wasting any time! On Tuesday she attended a Bottega Veneta-sponsored dinner at MOCA to fete Taryn Simon alongside best friend Gwyneth Paltrow and yesterday she joined pal Reese Witherspoon at the celebration of Rag & Bone’s LA Flagship store. Pictures from both events have been added to the photo gallery.
The filming of The Counselor has moved on from London, England to Alicante, Spain! Cameron Diaz was photographed on September 24 & 25 on set with Javier Bardem and director Ridley Scott for the upcoming thriller, where Cami plays the femme-fatale Malkina. I’m so excited for this movie, especially as everyone who’s read the script raves about how fresh it is (and having Ridley Scott as the director doesn’t hurt, either) and how each character is so well written. In an interview with Collider.com, co-star Penelope Cruz said “I read the script, and after three pages I was completely blown away by how new this feels. It’s Cormac McCarthy’s first script. Not based on any book, its just a script. And it’s an incredible piece for actors, all the characters are incredible. All the scenes are very long scenes, a lot of dialogue, scenes that have a beginning and a transition. You can travel with each scene, you have the space and the time to really go through a journey with each scene; and that, for actors, it’s a big privilege to have scenes like that.”
As the theatrical release of Gambit is just a few months away (at least for the UK moviegoers), the studio is releasing more and more promo-material for the movie. We now have the official poster as well as two new stills of Cameron Diaz as PJ Puznowski. The movie looks to be an entertaining one, and I can’t wait to see it when it finally hits theaters (probably early next year). If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, watch it now!
Thanks to MSN Movies UK, we now have the full-length international trailer for Gambit! Based on the 1966 British caper comedy which starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine, Gambit centers on Harry Deane (Colin Firth), a London art curator who enlists a Texas Rodeo Queen (Cameron Diaz) in a scheme to con the richest man in England. The movie was written by the Coen Brothers and directed by Michael Hoffman. Check out the trailer in our video archive and the screencaptures in the photo gallery by clicking on the previews below, respectively.
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?
After months of waiting, we finally have a sneak peek at the first Gambit trailer. The remake of the classic heist-movie, is about private art curator Harry Deane who devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, into purchasing a fake Monet painting. In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII. Gambit stars Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman. The first trailer, that premiered yesterday on British TV, isn’t the full version but I’m sure we’ll get the whole preview soon. For now – enjoy!
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.”
