Witness Cameron Diaz lop off her locks in her latest tear-jerker
Cameron Diaz shaves off her hair for her latest movie role in My Sister’s Keeper, out of empathy for her character’s cancer-stricken daughter.
Diaz, renowned for playing bubbly, quirky blondes in romantic comedies such as My Best Friend’s Wedding, may startle many of her fans, after taking on a far more challenging role.
Diaz plays mother to Kate, who is battling leukaemia in this adaptation of Jodi Picoult’s best-selling novel of the same name. The movie follows the story of Kate’s younger sister, Anna, who is conceived as a genetic match to save the life of her older sister. Anna later struggles with her parents for control over her own body, after they ask her to donate one of her kidneys to her ailing sister.

Fans of the A-lister need not be alarmed however; Diaz has not followed in Demi Moore’s footsteps, circa GI Jane, and shaved off her luscious locks for real. Instead, the star is said to have used numerous wigs and skull-caps for the scenes.
Have your tissues at the ready for what could be this year’s biggest tear-jerker – it hits UK screens on 26 June.
