According to WENN, Cameron Diaz is teaming up with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore to host a TV contest about saving the planet.
The duo will work with Current TV and in association with the Alliance for Climate Protection on the project, called 60 Seconds to Save the Earth.
The contest challenges viewers across the U.S., U.K. and the Republic of Ireland to create brief public service announcements offering tips to battle global warming.
Gore, who recently organised the Live Earth concerts, says of his latest green initiative, “We are asking young adults to take a stance and use their creative voices to encourage change and help fight the climate crisis.”
Diaz adds, “It is an exciting opportunity for young adults from around the world to inspire change because the planet needs a good publicist.”
Cameron will be joined by Orlando Bloom, George Clooney, singer Rihanna, director Sam Mendes to select 20 finalists.
Normally I wouldn’t post this kind of gossip, but Cameron’s spokesman has now released a statement from her. This piece of news is about what’s going on with Criss Angel, the Mindfreak-star, and his ex-wife. Cameron was seen with him earlier this year and his ex-wife blames Cameron for ruining their marriage. Here’s what People.com said.
“When Cameron met Criss Angel in May of this year, he had been separated from his wife for over a year and she had already filed a petition to divorce him in 2006”, Diaz’s rep, Brad Cafarelli, tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Cameron and Criss went on only four dates over a month ago and have no current relationship”, he said.
As was reported by the New York Post, Joanne Sarantakos, 37, of Long Island, N.Y., is accusing Angel, her husband of five years, of mental cruelty and abandonment â€“ as well as having had an affair with Diaz.
“We’re naming Cameron Diaz as his lover,” her lawyer, Dominic Barbara, reportedly told the Nassau County court, where Angel (real name: Christopher Sarantankos), 39, and his ex faced off on Friday. “We will subpoena her as soon as she comes back to New York.”
In his statement, Cafarelli added, “These are meaningless, attention-seeking attempts to unfairly and unnecessarily exploit Cameron’s celebrity by trying to involve her in matters she has nothing to do with”.
Cameron has dismissed suggestions she will only get an Oscar if she stops playing “happy and funny” roles. She insists her outgoing demeanour shouldn’t stop Academy Award bosses from considering her for the accolade. Cameron says, “I’m not ashamed of being a happy, bubbly and funny person. I think that is just as valid as being the dark and brooding Oscar-nominated one. So if anyone wants to start putting me in a box, that’s fine by me.”, reports PR-Inside.com
WENN reports that Cameron Diaz misses out on roles in big movies because she fears commitment. She hates making long-term plans and believes her problems stem from always getting her own way as a child.
She says, “There are a lot of great roles out there but you know my problem? I’m really bad at commitment. I just hate committing myself to anything. I’m terrible at making plans. I have no idea where I want to be. It’s probably comes from me being a total spoiled brat and always getting my own way.”
Cameron admits she can’t even invest her time in a pet: “I don’t even want a dog. My cat just died and I don’t want another cat. Oh god, I’ve just opened another friggin’ can of worms.”
