If you are a movie fan, you've likely seen several of the 5 best Cameron Diaz movies. Cameron Diaz has been a movie star for a while now, but she worked her way up in show business for a long time. Here are the very best of her movies, ranging from her feature film debut to more recent fare.
Cameron Diaz made her feature film debut in "The Mask" in 1994. "The Mask" is known as a Jim Carrey movie by fans of the beloved comedian. Cameron played Tina Carlyle. Jim plays Stanley Ipkiss, a bank clerk who transforms into a superhero when he puts a mask on of a Norse god named Loki. Don't expect a typical superhero movie here, though. It's something unique. Cameron's role is memorable, although the movie is not a starring vehicle for her.
- "My Best Friend's Wedding" is one of the most fulfilling romantic comedies. However, it's not what you would expect from any formula of the romantic comedy that has been done before. The movie has Cameron Diaz starring as the lovely bride-to-be and Julia Roberts as the groom's best friend who happens to be madly in love with him. It's a story about true love and true friendship.
- "The Invisible Circus" is a critically acclaimed movie based upon the bestselling book of the same name. It was a smaller dramatic film, and it did not get the widespread release that it so deserved. Cameron shows off her dramatic acting skills here. Cameron Diaz plays Faith, the big sister who has gone missing. Her little sister goes on a quest to find her older sister, and she also ends up discovering who her older sister truly was and who she is.
- "The Holiday" is a remarkable movie from filmmaking genius Nancy Meyers, whose films are always instantly recognizable and immaculately shot. Cameron Diaz stars as Amanda, and she plays a young show business professional in Hollywood who does a house switch for the holidays with a young woman, portrayed by Kate Winslet, who lives in England. It's both a comedy and a drama, and it's also a deep love story. It's a movie to watch every Christmas or throughout the holiday season. Cameron Diaz shines in this role.
- "My Sister's Keeper" had Cameron Diaz as the recipient of Oscar rumors. It was said that she deserved to be nominated for her raw, fearless portrayal as the mother of a terminal cancer patient in this unforgettable film. Made in 2009 and based on the book by Jodi Picoult, the movie is told mostly from the perspective of the younger sister who was born to save her older sister's life. Diaz gives the mother a humanity that makes on empathize with her, despite the questionable choices she has made in the lives of her children.
