Hot Legs: Cameron Diaz At The U.K. Premiere Of 'Knight And Day'

July 23rd, 2010 11:32am EDT
Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz easily manages to make simple dresses look sexy. The smiling actress showed up to the "Knight and Day" U.K. premiere on Thursday in a silver sequined shift dress.

The star undergoes rigorous exercise routines to put on weight because she'd become "really skinny" if she stopped working out. She admits her toned torso is not down to genetics, insisting she has to work hard to ensure she doesn't fall below a healthy weight.

Meanwhile, Mike Myers and Diaz - who voice the title character and Princess Fiona in the "Shrek" films - are not convinced the franchise is over for good.

She tells Britain's Vogue magazine, "You know how you have those moments of feeling dissatisfied and you think, 'What would make my life better?' Well, I've yet to go, 'A-ha, that's it: a child!'

Don't Ask The 'Shrek' Stars To Do Voices For Your Kids

May 19th, 2010 8:30am EDT
Shrek Forever After
The "Shrek" movies are known for the recognizable voices of their celebrity stars as much as they are for their touching, irreverent fairy tales. By the time they got to do "Shrek Forever After," the actors had some war stories of meeting families and having to turn it on in public.

There’s no separating Antonio Banderas from Puss in Boots.

“I remember a couple of times where, a woman came to me once in a supermarket with her kid who was like five years old and said to me, ‘Look! Look! It’s Puss in Boots!,’” Banderas said. “The kid looks up to me and says, ‘No mom, that’s Zorro.’ You don...

Best Celebrity Voice Acting Roles

Kung Fu Panda
Voice acting is a much more lucrative business than one might imagine, with the actors in question providing their voice for animated movies, video games, television shows, voice overs, and anything else that requires a voice but no face.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
(Hollywoodchicago.com) – For the life of me, I couldn’t exorcise it from my head. Amid all the splendor of such a picturesque film, this one question was like a gnat I couldn’t swat: “Is this really rated ‘PG’?” Indeed, “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” is rated “PG”. But that didn’t come without great scrutiny and much editing.

For starters, Walt Disney Pictures contractually required the filmmakers for the epic film to achieve a “PG” rating. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) granted it following a wide array of amendments.
