Having looked into Drew Barrymore’s net worth, I decided it was high time to look into the net worth of another one of Charlie’s Angels. (Don’t worry Lucy Liu, I will not be skipping your net worth. Charlie’s Angels forever.) Cameron Diaz is one of my favorite actresses and people. I loved her in Charlie’s Angels, obviously, but I am so excited to dive in and explore how she made her millions.
Who is Cameron Diaz?
Cameron Diaz is frequently referred to as America’s sweetheart. Her easygoing smile and her contagious laugh make her an easy fan favorite. She began modeling for Calvin Klein at 16, and she made her film debut at age 21 opposite Jim Carrey in The Mask. But that was far from her only film success! She also starred in classics like: My Best Friend's Wedding (with another one of my favorites: Julia Roberts. I should explore her net worth sometime.), There's Something About Mary, Being John Malkovich, Vanilla Sky and Charlie's Angels, as well as voicing the character of Princess Fiona in the Shrek franchise. She gained some notoriety for dating Justin Timberlake, but I think she did just fine without him. Her final role was in the 2014 film adaptation of Annie, and she confirmed her retirement from acting in March 2018. It honestly seems like there isn’t a role she can’t handle, but of course we also respect her decision to retire early.

How did Cameron Diaz make her money?
Cameron Diaz hasn’t always been Hollywood rich. She characterized her upbringing, in San Diego, California, as frugal. Her family collected soda cans to turn in for extra money because that $20 meant something to them. She was scouted by a modeling agency at the age of 16, and the rest, including a Golden Globe nomination, several box office smash hits, and that amazing body, is Hollywood History!
Fun fact: Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dogg went to the same Long Beach high school. Is there something in the water there?
In addition to her starring roles, Cameron owns (and has owned) a number of impressive properties around the US, primarily in New York and California. She has also published two books: The Body Book, a New York Times Bestseller, and the Longevity Book. She’ll soon be raking it in with her natural wine company, Avaline. Through writing, acting, wine, strategic sales and rentals, she has quite the fortune built up.

What is Cameron Diaz’s net worth in 2021?
Cameron Diaz’s 2021 net worth is $140 million. During the peak of her career, 1998 to 2011, Cameron earned more than $160 million from base film salaries! Despite the fact that she’s retired, Cameron is currently the fifth highest-grossing U.S. actress ever. Combine that with her real estate portfolio and you begin to see Cameron Diaz as a shrewd money master. The key to Cameron’s success is her ability to master new things. She is versatile on screen and in her personal life, and that has led to a hefty fortune.
Until recently, she kept her domestic engineering prowess pretty quiet. She’s been married to Benji Madden since 2015, and they had a daughter together in late 2019. Her marriage to Benji also means she’s related to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, possibly the coolest parents alive. I’m pretty sure you’d have to be an excellent domestic engineer to hang out with that family. Obviously, her retirement from acting shows that she is all in on family.
Cameron Diaz also has a new natural wine venture, Avaline, going. This new line of wine has inspired many hours of awesome cooking lessons and wine pairing recommendations from Cameron on Instagram. Yahoo! even called her a domestic goddess. If that’s not the ultimate win for a domestic engineer, I don’t know what is.
How can I make money like Cameron Diaz?
With an easy smile and a willingness to explore your talents. Seriously, Cameron Diaz was already a certified star actress when she decided to get into the book, wine, and real estate game. As it turns out, putting yourself out there and trying new things can increase your net worth in a major way.
