Cameron Diaz was a model with no acting experience when she landed the co-starring role in the surprise Jim Carrey hit The Mask. She was spectacular holding her own against Carrey's rubber face and a cute dog. She played it smart by taking a few roles in smaller independent films to hone her craft before returning to Hollywood three years later in My Best Friend's Wedding before exploding in the titular role in There's Something About Mary for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe and won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for best actress.
Though she rarely is mentioned when the conversation trends to talented actresses she has actually received four Golden Globe nominations (Mary, Gangs of New York, Being John Malkovich and Vanilla Sky). Outside of these award nominated performances she has also starred in hits such as Shrek and Charlies Angels.
She had a rough 2009 with My Sisters Keeper and The Box neither of which connected well with either audiences or critics. 2010 looks a little brighter with another Shrek Movie and the Green Hornet on the slate.
And while some claim she is suffering from to much sun in her youth I still think she looks very good in her bikini.

Cameron Diaz more than impresses in The Mask while Jim Carrey plays a slightly clumsy and downmarket version of Chrstian Bale's Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. (Or at least that was the vibe I got from it)
