See Cameron Diaz Recreate the ‘There’s Something About Mary’ Character

Fun nostalgia! Cameron Diaz shared an Instagram video of her reprising her character (and costume!) from the 1998 comedy There is something about Mary.

In the clip, comedian and social media personality Benito Skinner (aka Benny Drama) and his boyfriend head to The sweetest thing the star’s house for dinner. For the occasion, he’s dressed exactly like Diaz’s titular character in There’s something about Mary, hair “gel” and all.

the charlie’s angels The 49-year-old actress opens the door to greet her guests and at first seems uncomfortable with Skinner’s outfit. But then she shrugs, smiles, and decides to wear the iconic look herself. She and Skinner, 28, then open canned wine Avaline, a brand Diaz co-founded.

“@bennydrama7 bringing @avaline cans wasn’t the weirdest part of our dinner 😂,” The mask star captioned the Instagram video.

On the Avaline site, Diaz explains why she and her friend Katherine Power decided to launch their own wine brand.

“Katherine Power and I were catching up over a drink – as the wine started to flow, so did our conversation about it. We kind of had that moment where we were like, “God, we love wine – what’s in it?” Can we really drink that? How to drink more? We started asking ourselves questions about our wine; which is so crazy because I’ve never done this before. I just assumed it was fermented grapes,” said the bad teacher said the star.

Diaz, who shares her 2-year-old daughter Raddix with her husband Benji Maddenwent on hiatus after playing Miss Hannigan in the 2014 version of Anna.

While a guest on Kevin HartThe Hart to Hart Podcast in 2021, the Shrek The star explained why she backed down. “When you’re doing something at a very high level for a long period of time, parts of your life have to “kind of get passed on to other people,” she said. Diaz added that at the age of 40, she began to realize that there were “so many parts of my life…that I wasn’t touching and dealing with.”

The California native told Hart, 42, that she wanted more simplicity in her life, saying, “I really wanted my life to be manageable by me,” Diaz continued. My one-day routine is literally what I can manage to do on my own.

In February 2021, the actress revealed on the SiriusXM show “Quarantined With Bruce” that taking a break had allowed her to be more present in her daughter’s life.

“I feel so blessed to be here now with my child and, you know, to be the mother that I am,” she said. “It’s such a blessing, it’s completely privileged, and I’m really, really grateful.”
