Cameron Diaz
Actress, Charlie’s Angels (2000)
Someone close to Diaz really should warn her that excessive dieting is not making her any more beautiful. It's merely emphasising the size of her nose and mouth: she's starting to look like an anorexic duck-billed platypus.

Actress, The Holiday (2006)
Cameron Diaz can “do” two things as a movie star: gorgeous airhead and driven neurotic. She tries to combine the two here, with limited success. It’s hard to imagine her as the character written, which is an intelligent career-woman with literary leanings. There’s a pile of reasonably heavyweight novels she means to read over the holiday, and it’s impossible to imagine her taking the time to open them, let alone comprehend anything within them. Trying to look as if she might be romantically interested in an English publisher who speaks in complete sentences and refers to himself as “one”, she looks as relaxed as a giraffe trapped in a string quartet.

Actress, What Happens in Vegas (2008)
Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher, two stars almost monastic in their avoidance of ever doing or saying a funny thing, have come here to tell us of their uproarious adventures... It’s like a very lo-cal version of The War of the Roses. But Diaz’s grinning face looks as if it has been zapped with a 10,000-volt insincerity raygun.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
Ms Diaz, so gorgeous in her debut The Mask (1994), is starting to look much too old to behave like a ditzy teenager, and age has turned her so orange that she’s starting to resemble David Dickinson’s long-lost sister.
