Cameron Diaz Accompanies Drew Barrymore To Wedding Dress Fitting

Cameron Diaz accompanied best friend Drew Barrymore to her wedding dress fitting, sparking rumours she will be a bridesmaid on the big day.

The Charlie’s Angles actresses were snapped leaving the Chanel store in Beverly Hills, where Drew had her gown tweaked ahead of her wedding to art consultant Will Kopelman at her estate in Montecito, California this weekend.

Cameron revealed to InStyle magazine that Will asked her advice before his proposal to Drew last December, saying: “I knew Drew was getting married before she did!”

After nearly a year of dating, Will proposed to Drew over the festive holidays in Sun Valley, Idaho.

There has been a lot of speculation and gossip that the 37-year-old actress is pregnant with her and Will’s first child after she was pictured with what looked like a baby scan, although her representative has refused to comment. Drew has also been photographed wearing a lot of baggy clothes recently, perhaps a sign of a growing belly?

It will be Drew’s third time down the aisle, following her previous marriages to Welsh bar owner Jeremy Thomas and comedian Tom Green.

Drew recently admitted that she is a chaotic person by nature, revealing: “I can be very fiery, I am passionate and chaotic. I am a girl who chases everything she really wants. Life is too short to miss out on something. Things don’t drop in your lap.”

Cameron Diaz to adopt?
Cameron Diaz to adopt?

Cameron Diaz has suggested in a recent interview that she wants to adopt a child.

The 39-year-old actresshas had a string of failed romances, including Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez, but they have all ended amid speculation that Cameron is afraid of commitment. Now, in a recent interview with InStyle magazine, she claims she does not want to live her life how society thinks she should and may one day extend her family without getting pregnant.

She told the magazine: ”Society definitely puts pressure on women to make them think their lives should go a certain way. I’ve never said I don’t want children - I just haven’t had children yet. I don’t know what’s going to happen in my life! I could end up adopting children. I could end up with a partner who already has children. Who knows? I’m not trying to fit into anyone’s box about how I should be. I just fit in my own box.”

Cameron, who rose to fame in early 90s movie ‘The Mask’, is often surprised by the kind of men she has dated in the past and admits she ”loves” the feeling of being in love. She said: ”I would never have guessed that I would end up dating any of the guys I’ve dated - never. There’s no through-line between them. But I love love, and love comes from many different places. When I was going through a bit of a heartbreak a little while ago, I said to a friend, ‘Wow, this really hurts!’ And he said to me, ‘That just shows you what your capacity for loving is.’”

It has been reported that singer Beyoncé and her actress friend Gwyneth Paltrow are looking to go on a holiday together, where they will be partaking in yoga classes. It is believed that Beyoncé and Gwyneth have booked a five star villa in Tuscany, Italy, where they will be enjoying their break and the yoga.

An insider explained, ”They’re planning daily yoga sessions at the private five-star villa, which has its own pool. Beyoncé has also been taking her daughter Blue Ivy to baby yoga classes after Gwyneth recommended it, so they will spend some of the holiday doing that. And the pair will get stuck into a menu of Gwyneth’s favourite organic grub while they are away.”
 
It was recently reported that Ryan Murphy is looking to create a musical comedy movie titled One Hit Wonders, which he is hoping will star Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as Cameron Diaz.

Victoria Beckham Oscar designs for Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron and Gwyneth Paltrow

It has been reported that singer turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham is in big demand by a whole host of Hollywood A listers, who want Victoria to design their outfits for the forthcoming Oscars ceremony. It is believed that actress such as Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz, all want to be wearing a Victoria Beckham dress on the red carpet.

However, it is not yet clear whether or not Victoria and her team will be able to make the dresses. An insider explained, “We do have requests in from stylists for the Oscars, but as our team is so small we don’t have the opportunity to custom make dresses like the bigger fashion houses. Nor do we have the big budgets to pay people to endorse our brand, so it’s really a waiting game and we won’t know until the night if any of our dresses will be worn.”
 
Victoria Beckham has recently set off to New York with her daughter Harper, where she will be attending the New York Fashion Week. It is believed that Victoria will be unveiling some of her latest collection at the event, where she is beginning to make quite a name for herself.
P Diddy and Cameron Diaz dating?
P Diddy and Cameron Diaz dating?

It is a rumour that has been going around for a number of years now and, just when you think it has gone away and everybody has forgotten about it, a fresh rumour appears out of nowhere. People have been romantically linking Charlie’s Angels actress Cameron Diaz to rapper P Diddy since 2008 and nothing has every really come of it.

The latest rumour, is that P Diddy and Cameron Diaz have been seen at a New York hotel, where they were said to be “making out like teenagers”. This comes off of the back of reports earlier this year, that Cameron Diaz and P Diddy were dating, after they were spotted together on a number of occasions. However, they denied that anything romantic was going on and that they were talking about future projects together.
 
Back in September, Cameron Diaz put an end to her on off relationship with baseball player Alex Rodriguez but P Diddy is still believed to be with his long term girlfriend Cassie. However, a friend of P Diddy has claimed that he is always “single whenever there’s a better offer on the table”. Whether P Diddy and Cameron Diaz are dating, we do not know, so we will let you make up our own minds.

Hollywood actress Cameron Diaz shows off the big baby bump that she is carrying underneath her vest top. But don’t worry, she is not actually pregnant, it is just for her latest film role in the forthcoming pregnancy movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
 
 
The 38 year old actress was seen strolling around with the prosthetic belly, while filming took place on set in Atlanta on Tuesday, August 23. Cameron was also seen sporting the pregnant look while filming scenes at the Woodruff Arts Center, in front of a food truck.
 
 
What to Expect When You’re Expecting is based on the Heidi Murkoff self help books. The movie centres around four couples who are all expecting their first child. What to Expect When You’re Expecting also stars Jeniffer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks and Joe Manganiello and is set to be released on May 11, 2012.

My Idiot Brother actress Elizabeth Banks has revealed how she has been mistaken for Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler in the past. The Hunger Games star also admitted that she felt bad for the guy, so went along with it and pretended to be Chelsea.
 
Elizabeth explained, “I was sitting in Toronto and a guy walked up to me and said, ‘Oh my god, my girlfriend loves you. She would die if I didn’t get your autograph. This is so exciting!’ He’s like, ‘I just love your books. I mean, My Horizontal Life…’ I was like, ‘Oh, he thinks he’s meeting Chelsea Handler.’ I couldn’t ruin it for him!”
 
Banks then added, “I was like, ‘It’s nice to meet you.’ I was just hanging out, being Chelsea, drinking my vodka and having a good time. He couldn’t have been happier.” Elizabeth Banks revealed back in July how she had signed on to star alongside Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Isla Fisher for the movie What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
Bad Teacher, what we think
Bad Teacher, what we think
It is often wondered why people focus so much of their time on celebrities. They are supposed to be every day people with just much bigger paychecks and yet, actors can be prone to the same flaws and failings as every day people are. For instance, they can be like children who think they are big enough or capable enough of doing something on their own, like how Cameron Diaz thought she could carry her new comedy film Bad Teacher all on her own. The appropriately titled film follows Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz), a fowl mouthed; greedy, lazy high school teacher who finds out that she’s no longer able to leech off her rich fiancé’s lifestyle when he gives her a well deserved boot. Halsey regretfully returns to high school teacher work (though couldn’t care less about her students) and falls into a slump until she meets new teacher Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake). He’s rich, he’s cute, and all Elizabeth thinks she needs to get back her rich lifestyle (by marrying him) is to earn enough money for breast implants through the school. That’s pretty much the whole movie’s plot in a rotten nutshell.
 
Raunchy comedies are sometimes a hit and miss. A lot of people think that if you put a bunch of swears and perverse language/situations that any movie can be hysterical, truthfully, I often find truth in that case. Though in this film’s case it goes back to the whole hit and miss thing. You’d never know this movie was directed by Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: the Dewey Cox story), because the whole film feels like it was directed and made at Cameron Diaz’s pleasure. She may be the lead actor in this film but in many ways, Bad Teacher feels more like a platform vehicle to hammer in the notion that Cameron Diaz is funny enough to do whatever she wants to do. Which is odd considering Diaz is no stranger to comedy, her work in There’s Something about Mary speaks for itself, and yet despite this movie’s well earned chuckles now and then, it feels like Diaz is trying so hard to make us laugh at every little thing she does and it just doesn’t work that way.
 
Diaz is playing a character who is rotten to the core, and the movie does not attempt to hide this, if you’re not a fan of watching rotten characters, this film isn’t for you. Now this isn’t exactly a horrible thing. Films often focus on less than admirable characters and it’s that kind of obnoxious persona that makes us see where things are going to go with this character. Diaz’s Halsey really doesn’t go anywhere though, that’s the thing, she just spirals down into a more rotten human being and just occasionally does stuff that makes us laugh. Admittedly, watching a teacher smoke pot in the school parking lot, and smashing kids faces in with dodge balls if they answer quiz questions wrong produce quite a few laughs. Even the sexed up car wash scene (which served no point other to remind us Diaz is still hot) made me laugh and smile. The problem is this movie thinks that if you put enough dirty, fowl mouthed humor into something; we will forget the fact this movie is making it seem “okay” to praise bad behavior and turning genuinely decent people into would-be villains.
 
Take Amy Squirrel (Lucy Punch), an almost cartoonish character whose “goody two shoes” teacher character is too absurd to believe someone like this really exists. Punch’s character serves as the rival for Halsey fighting for Timberlake’s character and trying to expose Halsey as a fraud. Punch actually does a pretty good job with her performance, but her character is pre-set to be despised and fail miserably that it actually annoyed me rather then made me laugh. The only actor who pulls off this transition well is Russell Gettis (Jason Segel), a gym teacher who is just as morally bankrupt as Halsey is and is in love with her, but since he’s equally financially bankrupt, she’s not interested in him. This character was the most interesting to me because he’s the only one who feels real, he says and does things that are unlikable and fit right in with Halsey’s sense of humor, yet we find ourselves liking the guy and actually hoping these pair of fowl mouthed, inconsiderate jerks end up with each other. However, I felt the real scene-stealers of this film were the supporting cast, which also falls into the film’s biggest problem: the leading cast. 
 
Most of the funnier bits and scenes come from the minor players like Phyllis Smith (The Office) or John Michael Higgins. The funniest scene of the movie actually has NOTHING to do with Diaz or any of the leads, actor Thomas Lennon gets “intimidated” by the roommate Halsey met on Craigslist and THAT scene had me in tears. Even Justin Timberlake, who is billed as one of the main actors in this film, barely gets any screen time and it’s a shame because he’s quite good in this role and had SO much potential to make me laugh. But, every time someone is going to do something genuinely funny, it feels like Cameron Diaz comes over, grabs the camera, points it back at her and says “Hey, this is about me isn’t it?” Diaz may be the star of the film but she is not the only actor in this movie, and it always feels like the cast wants to do something but then restrains themselves so they don’t step over Diaz’s toes. It’s not the fault of the jokes or their content; it’s the device they are using to deliver them, the device referring to Cameron Diaz. Any joke can be ruined if the comedian is trying too hard to deliver the punch line, and Diaz is laying it on pretty thick.
 
In many ways, this film seems strikingly familiar to Bad Santa starring Billy Bob Thornton (hey they even both have the word ‘bad’ in the title). Both films feature a low life, morally corrupt, potty mouthed loser who has given up on life, both feature people who have jobs that involve children, and both feature people who are desperate to make some quick cash. The main difference between them is being redeemable. The characters in Bad Santa were a thousand times dirtier, mean spirited, but were also more believable and presented a perfect combination of humor and dark storytelling that proves even the lowest of the low can be redeemed. Bad Teacher thinks making good people look bad and bad people look awesome equals awesome filmmaking, sorry to say that’s not the case. You can’t just make a movie funnier by throwing in toilet-scented language and having a jerk constantly outshine everyone else in the movie. Shattering your moral compass does not guarantee comedy gold; no matter how many times Diaz drops the F bomb to remind you “I’m still funny!” This movie has no balance in humor and no balance in actor screen time, this is the Cameron Diaz show and she has to remind you, even if she has to steal everyone else’s screen time to do it. So what have we learned, is Bad Teacher really all that bad? No but it’s not all that great either. The premise is ripe with comedy potential, Diaz does knock a few good ones out of the park, Jason Segel is impossible to hate, and Phyllis Smith still has that “Office” magic. But, Diaz is way too dominating for my tastes, the supporting cast deserved way more attention, and evil triumphing over good isn’t as funny as this movie thinks it is, nor is Cameron Diaz.
 
Bad Teacher gets a 3 out of 10.
