Her Cuban-American father Emilio Diaz worked as a foreman for an oil company, and her mother Billie Early (whose ancestry includes Italian, German, and Native American) worked as an exporting agent.

Cameron attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School.

At age 16, she began her career as a fashion model. Diaz signed with top modeling agency, Elite Model Management. After graduating high school, she went to work in Japan and met video director Carlo de la Torre. On her return to America, she moved in with him. For the next few years, her modeling took her around the world, working for contracts with major companies.

At the age of 21, Diaz auditioned for Jim Carrey's The Mask. To her own surprise, and with no previous acting experience, she was cast as the female lead. Immediately after getting the part, she signed up for acting lessons.

Over the next three years, she won roles in low-budget, independent films, such as The Last Supper, Feeling Minnesota, and She's The One.

She then regained mainstream success with My Best Friend's Wedding and There's Something About Mary, and won critical acclaim for Being John Malkovich, which earned her Best Supporting Actress nominations at the Golden Globes, the BAFTA Awards and the SAG Awards.

Diaz has also starred in the hit adaptation of Charlie's Angels and its sequel, and she voiced a lead character in Shrek and its sequel, for which she earned $10 million. In 2001, she won nominations for Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards and the AFI Awards for Vanilla Sky. For Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, she became the second actress (after Julia Roberts) to earn $20 million for a role; the film underperformed at the box office.

Future work for Diaz includes roles in Nancy Meyers' The Holiday in 2006 and Shrek 3 in 2007.

She suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, and has publicly admitted she habitually rubs doorknobs before opening doors to clean them.

In 2004, a commercial S&M video of Diaz and another girl torturing another man leaked to the Internet. She made the video when she was 19. Diaz filed a suit against the Russian Internet site that distributed the video, but the video file is now distributed by many porn sites and Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks.

Diaz has been vocal in her opposition to US President George W. Bush. Before 2000's election, Diaz once wore a shirt that said "I WON'T VOTE FOR A SON OF A BUSH!" while promoting Charlie's Angels. During an Oprah appearance before 2004's election, Diaz said "Women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. We could lo--if you think that rape should be legal, then don't vote..."

Cameron Diaz is currently dating former *NSYNC's Justin Timberlake. In October 2004, they were in an altercation with a tabloid photographer outside a hotel. When the photographer and another man tried to photograph the couple, the celebrities snatched the camera. Pictures of the incident appeared in Us Weekly. Representatives for the couple claimed that they were "ambushed" and acting out of self-defense.

Her favorite soccer team is Brentford. Sometimes she can be seen wearing a red and white woolly hat.

In 2005, Cameron revealed that during her school days, she was called Skeletor by her classmates. Many tabloids published this.

Diaz was the host of the 2005 MTV television series Trippin'.

Maxim ranked her #22 in their annual hot 100 in 2004, then she ranked #11 in 2005. In 2006 she made the top 10 by ranking in at #7
