THE HOLIDAY

CAMERON DIAZ (Amanda) made her feature film debut at age 21 as femme fatale Tina Carlyle in The Mask opposite Jim Carrey. For the next two years, she worked non-stop in films including the ensemble black comedy The Last Supper, the romantic comedy She's the One for director Edward Burns, Feeling Minnesota opposite Keanu Reeves and Vincent D'Onofrio, and the thriller Head Above Water opposite Harvey Keitel.

In 1996, Diaz was named ShoWest's Female Star of Tomorrow by the National Association of Theatre Owners. A year later, she established herself as a star in My Best Friend's Wedding, one of the 10 top-grossing films of 1997. Her performance opposite Julia Roberts and Dermot Mulroney earned Diaz the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Supporting Actress in a Comedy.

After starring opposite Ewan McGregor in Danny Boyle's A Life Less Ordinary, she took on the title role in the 1998 blockbuster romantic comedy There's Something About Mary for directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly. Diaz's disarming portrayal brought her the New York Film Critics Circle Award as Best Actress, plus a Golden Globe nomination, the American Comedy Award, the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Actress in a Comedy and the MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance.

Following the dark comedy Very Bad Things, Diaz transformed herself into browbeaten Lotte Schwartz in director Spike Jonze's 1999 critical hit Being John Malkovich, which brought Diaz nominations for Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and British Academy of Film (BAFTA) awards. Her portrayal of the tough young owner of a pro football team in Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday earned her a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Actress. She starred opposite Al Pacino, Jamie Foxx, Dennis Quaid, LL Cool J, James Woods and Ann-Margret.

Diaz took on the role of action hero in the feature film adaptation of the ‘70s television series Charlie's Angels® opposite Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu and Bill Murray. The three "Angels” won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award and were selected Favorite Action Team, while Diaz was singled out for Best Dance Sequence at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards. The sequel, Charlie's Angels®: Full Throttle, was released in 2003.

In 2000, she appeared in Showtime's "Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her” with Glenn Close, Calista Flockhart, Amy Brenneman and Holly Hunter, and in 2001, she appeared in The Invisible Circus, adapted from Jennifer Egan's novel.

Diaz provided the voice of feisty Princess Fiona in the worldwide animated blockbuster hit Shrek with Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and John Lithgow. Shrek set box-office records with its theatrical, video and DVD releases, and appeared on dozens of critics' lists in 2001. Shrek 2 was an even bigger box-office hit, and a third Shrek feature will debut next summer.

Diaz was nominated for Golden Globe, AFI and SAG Awards and was chosen Best Supporting Actress by the Boston Society of Film Critics for her work in Cameron Crowe's Vanilla Sky opposite Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, Jason Lee and Kurt Russell. She next starred in the comedy The Sweetest Thing with Christina Applegate and Selma Blair.

Diaz starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, Liam Neeson and Daniel Day-Lewis in Martin Scorsese's Oscar®-nominated period epic Gangs of New York. She was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Supporting Actress category. She starred most recently in the critically acclaimed In Her Shoes for director Curtis Hanson, opposite Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine.

During 2004 and early 2005, Diaz explored some of the environmentally unique locations on the planet while discovering ways to help preserve them for the 10- episode MTV series "Trippin'.” Diaz grew up in Southern California.
