The Californian-born model and actress, Cameron Diaz, is not an unfamiliar face to those who enjoy watching world-renowned movies. Although she is now retired, her incredibly successful acting career hailed her as one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood in 1999.
Born in San Diego, California on August 30th, 1972, making her 49 years old, she is the daughter of a Cuban American father and German mother and is known for her strikingly attractive blue eyes and blonde hair. Her career started at the young age of 16 when she signed a modelling contract with Elite Model Management alongside her high school studies. Appearing in Calvin Klein and Levi’s advertisements and featuring on the cover of Seventeen magazine in 1990, this was only the beginning of her fame.
What Is Cameron Diaz's Net Worth?
Diaz has a net worth of around $140 million, according to celebritynetworth.com, and she earned over $42 million alone for acting in Bad Teacher, $3 million for Shrek, and $10 million for Shrek 2. She became the third highest-grossing actress in the world, with the films she starred in producing $7 billion worldwide.
Diaz also co-founded The Body Shop’s makeup line, L’Oreal, in 1994, and has authored two books: The Body Look: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body (2014) and The Longevity Book: The Science of ageing, the Biology of Strength, and the Promise of Health at Every Age (2017).
However, after announcing her retirement from acting in 2014, she is yet to secure any other deals. No longer hailed as the queen of the movie industry, her time is now occupied by managing her organic wine company, Avaline, which she co-founded with her business partner, Katherine Power. In 2019, she also gave birth to a baby girl and is enjoying her ‘at home’ life away from the Hollywood limelight.
