Why Cameron Diaz Didn't Go Bald
Posted 05.07.09 by reelz
In this summer's My Sister's Keeper, Cameron Diaz's character Sara shaves her head to support her terminally ill daughter, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva). Talking to the LA Times, Diaz spoke of her respect for co-star Vassilieva's real-life head shaving, saying:
She owned it. I mean, she was scared at first. I won't say that she ... she pushed through that fear, and I was just so inspired by her. She was an inspiration to us all.
She may have been inspiring, but it still wasn't enough to make Diaz give up her own head of hair. The former Charlie's Angels star narrowly escaped the shears by only needing to be bald for one day of shooting. But she was more than happy to give up makeup. "It took so much time off of when you have to get up and be ready. No makeup. It was great."
Well, at least she's got her priorities in order. Oscar-worthy personal sacrifice or relief at wearing no makeup? And people wonder why she's never taken a golden statuette home.
