There’s no denying that Cameron Diaz is one of the most beloved Hollywood actresses. From debuting alongside Jim Carey in the iconic film, “The Mask," to starring in all-time classics like “There’s Something About Mary," “Charlie’s Angels," and “Shrek” as the voice of Princess Fiona, Diaz instantly became an industry It girl. And, not to mention a style icon of the ‘90s. Throughout her acting career, Diaz has been nominated for countless SAG awards, BAFTAs, and Golden Globes, praising her success and remarkable performances in a diverse range of films. Diaz is the epitome of a Hollywood movie star, which is why it took the world by surprise when she decided to walk away from it to start a new chapter in her life. In 2014, Diaz became a New York Times bestselling author with her wellness-centric book, The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body, followed by The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Timethree years later—adding notable author to her repertoire of accomplishments. Through these novels, Diaz became a voice of authority in the wellness community with her important message of spreading body positivity.
In 2018, Diaz made yet another career pivot as she began working on a new, exciting business venture: Avaline. A clean wine company that is defining a new standard for ingredients and transparency through a range of pure, accessible wines, with our very own co-founder of Who What Wear, Katherine Power, Avaline’s ethos echos Diaz’s mission to understand everything we put into our bodies to live a more balanced lifestyle.
