After "The Mask", Cameron Diaz starred in "There's Something About Mary", in 1998, which helped propel her toward the top of the star list in Hollywood. Since that film, Cameron Diaz has starred in "Charlie's Angels" in 2000, "The Sweetest Thing" in 2002, "Shrek" 1 and 2, and has just completed work on "In Her Shoes".
