Why Cameron Diaz is on the new A list

AGE 30

WHY SHE’S A-LIST Along with her ”My Best Friend’s Wedding” costar Julia Roberts, Diaz is the only other member of the $20 million actress club, reportedly earning that sum for this summer’s ”Charlie’s Angels” sequel. Even better, she reportedly scored $10 million for a week of voice work as Princess Fiona in next year’s ”Shrek 2.” She’s unflappably charming, whether wearing Ben Stiller’s ”hair gel” in ”There’s Something About Mary” or picking pockets as a grubby thief in ”Gangs of New York,” which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Maybe she can pocket an Oscar, too.

WHAT’S NEXT ”Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” June 27.
