Pop Culture: Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz’s Sticky Hair Situation in “There’s Something About Mary”
It’s one of the most memorable scenes in There’s Something About MaryCameron Diaz’s character asking “Is that hair gel?” after Ben Stiller’s character’s pre-date “bathroom break.” So, it’s hard to believe Diaz didn’t initially want to do the scene! “I remember walking across the street from my trailer to the set with my hair sticking up for that scene and traffic stopped,” recalls Diaz. “People were wondering what was wrong with me.” Instead, Diaz’s appearance in the hilarious film, including that infamous scene, helped cement her status as one of Hollywood’s A-list actresses!
