Happy Birthday Cameron Diaz!: Live From E! Rewind
There is something about Cameron Diaz. Especially now that she’s coming out of retirement!
Though the actress stopped acting eight (!!) years ago in 2014, she’s finally coming back to our screens thanks to Netflix’s Back in Action. Literally, she’s back in action.
And we already know it’ll be another work of art on her resume that’s worth celebrating. After all, over two decades, the mom to daughter Raddix transformed into Lotte Schwartz in 1999’s Being John Malkovich, Natalie Cook in the 2000’s Charlie’s Angels and voiced Fiona in all of the Shrek movies. Truly, what can’t she do? We don’t know.
And as much as we loved her in those iconic roles, we simply must highlight her illustrious romantic comedy history, in which she has played characters who ranged from sweet to spicy (and dare we even say raunchy?) and made her co-stars seem just as obsessed with her as we always are.
The list of our favorite rom-coms our favorite heroine has starred in seems endless, but we are going to give it our best shot and applaud them all.
