Yes, gentlemen, the illustrious Cameron Diaz—so well known for her bright blonde locks—once sported the brunette look for a short time five years back. Now, this is an issue that could be argued to no end, but we’re tempted to say the dark-haired look almost makes her hotter. In any case, here are the recently resurfaced photos from her 2006 W magazine shoot. Judge for yourself.

Diaz rose to fame throughout the 1990s with high-profile roles in The Mask, My Best Friend’s Wedding and There’s Something About Mary.

Her career in entertainment began with modeling gigs when she was 16.

Diaz was 21 when she was cast in The Mask…and had no previous acting experience.

In 2001, Diaz tried her hand at voice work, taking on the role of Princess Fiona in Shrek.


Diaz grew up in Long Beach, California, and attended the same high school as Snoop Dogg.

Women have always behaved badly,” Diaz said recently. “I think probably worse than men. Maybe men just don’t have the stomach for it. They don’t want to see it on film because they just can’t take it. Any of my guy friends, when I tell them what women really talk about, they just don’t want to hear it. But maybe it’s time.”

We support your endeavors, Cameron. Bring on the bad.
