New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 3, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraMZeltungO Thursday July O 7A Film Closeup with Cameron Diaz By Joey Berlin Conlev News At the tender age of 1 6 when most girls are worried about getting the keys to Moms car and pushing their curfew to midnight Cameron Diaz had alfeady left her home in Southern California to be a model in Japan Actually what I said to my mom was Can I have my summer vaca tion in Japan all expenses paid recalls Diaz They trusted that I was open enough with them that if I got into a situation that wasnt good for me that I would say Can I come home So I went and had a good After that Diaz was off to model in Paris and Sydney all before gradu ating from high school She later auditioned for a bit part in The Mask and wound up as the female lead opposite Jim Carrey albeit with the modelturnedactress tag that can hinder a film career I often think that that was my she offers If I hadnt told anybody nobody would have known I could have been a secre tary someplace and that would have been more acceptable But then afterwards I just got over it It became silly to me that people would attach some sort of stigma Theyre two different things You can judge that and you judge this completely Judging from the reaction she got in The Diaz was not too badly stigmatized She went on to such high profile films as Shes the One and Feeling and this summer she has two new movies the black comedy Head Above Water and My Best Friends in which she plays the rich and beautiful brideto be opposite Dermot Mulroney and his best Julia Roberts eral memorable moments including some offkey singing and of course an unforgettable wedding scene Suffice it say that when this 24 yearold gets married in real life it will not be anyBMHHBH1 thing like the movie I spent four days up on the altar on a marble slab in not the best circumstances Theres a certain freedom that you tainted at all These are my lines This is my character This is what I hear in my head Let me just say But then you start This fall Diaz takes another step up the acting lad der with A Life Less directed by Danny Boyle Boyles sharp money from a very wealthy Eight

theater One of this seasons wouldbe blockbuster My Best Friends I IT y Wedding is Roberts movie but Diaz has a big juicy part with sev mystique and romance of the white wedding has been lost on me I dont think that I could ever do anything that extrava gant Im not much of a Diaz never planned to have an act ing career But when The Mask popped up she never looked back Acting sparked something in me that I hadnt experienced a thrill that was so great that I couldnt pass it she explains When I was auditioning for it I had a moment after a reading where I came out with sweaty palms screaming and jumping up and down I got such a rush from it that I knew This is As her career progressed Diaz has found acting more and more stimu lating In Head Above Water she costars with Harvey Keitel and Craig Sheffer who challenged her further Theres a certain freedom that you have when you dont know what youre doing at she says When you dont have any experi ence you can just walk into some thing by instinct Youre not a little differ ent Its very romantic in Diaz promises Its quite a lovely story although it is a little dark and its not conventional whatsoever Ewan McGregor plays a janitor who works for my fathers company My fathers a real jerk and I despise him so Im constantly doing things to try to upset him I get called into his office just as Ewans character bursts in to get revenge

electronic James Taylor responds to technological advances by running away from them He recorded his latest album in a barebones studio on Marthas Vineyard Clean seduc tive and mellow it sounds like 1975 all over again a musthave for Taylor junkies JTs superstar days may be behind him but he still knows his way around a somber reflective ballad Hourglass opens with Line Em a pretty tune that somehow finds a link between Richard Nixons final scene at the White House door and Taylors penchant for living in the past Taylor conjures up genuine sym pathy for Nixon remembering how the disgraced expresident took time to shake hands with a lineup of staff members before he left politics True to form Taylor turns this bittersweet image into a touching and painfully honest selfexamination Delicacy and grace abound on this record The nostalgic ballad Jump up Behind Me a simple song about remembering a horse ride down to the beach is sentimental without being syrupy Death pervades this record Taylors father brother and best friend all died recently and he addresses his sorrow beautiftilly in Enough to be on Your Hourglass is far from perfect there is a handful of onenote songs that
