- Do you think yourself funny?
"I think so happened that I was doing funny things, but I am not funny. I just know how to sell a joke. There are people who naturally exude around humor and always joking, but there are those who know how properly to convey joke. For 20 years I have been doing that, I have a wealth of experience. "
- And how did you learn to tell jokes?
"Practice. Eight years on TV show. There's a lot you can learn."
- Your family emigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine when you were 8 years old. In the four years you've lived seven in two-bedroom apartment, and your parents were taken to any work. This is an unusual story of the life of a young Hollywood star. Who would hold, not to talk about it?
"I have discussed this many times. Unless you have unearthed something new ..."
- Are you tired of this topic? Do you find it not interesting?
"I find it incredibly interesting, but I want you to Fairfax walked around and talked to any of its residents. Each of them has a similar story. My immigrant story turned into something bigger than it actually is."
- Do you think it is slightly fetish?
"Definitely. I do not have anything to do with this story, and always feel terrible when discussing it, because it's my parents talk about it all. They have gone through this hell. I did nothing. This is the merit of my parents, because they gave me a sense of security. I was 8 years old, I did not take any decision and did not bear any responsibility. "
- But you do have a memory?
"Wait a minute. I do not know what percentage of those memories - my own, and which ones I have created in my mind by listening to the stories of my family."
- In an interview, when you talk about your career, you use the definitions that people involved with you one thing, rarely used, fear, devotion, simplicity.
"What I do and who I am - different things. And always will be. What happens to people when they lose their understanding of who they are, and become either of those, who want to be in either of those, what they are forced to be. But in both cases, these people stop being themselves. in the film industry a lot of what you imagine yourself depends on the opinion of critics, producers, and actors. People are starting to believe in all that they say, and are the ones who want to see their. I think I agree with two of my conscious life. I like what I do. I can not imagine a different kind of activity".
- According to you, whether it may come a time when you can not feel at ease?
"You mean to go quietly into the groceries? I can not leave the house without being photographed, but it does not mean that at 10 pm I have no opportunity to go to Ralphs supermarket".
- Perhaps you are waiting for the question of personal life?
"Not from the magazine Esquire".
- You're right, we do not care. Have you ever lived in New York?
"From time to time. I like living in New York for two or three months, and then I run away. I like the idea of New York, where all the focus on yourself, then going back and scatter in all directions. I like that people do not pry into your affairs. You meet, but each somewhere in a hurry. Nobody works from nine am to five pm. In New York for two years, I rented an apartment with a roof. It peace and quiet. It is next to the river. This is amazing. We could drink a glass of wine on my roof!"
- Immediately after the interview, you will forget about this proposal ...
"Not at all. I will give you my email address. Write to me."

Cameron Diaz. You all know this actress. But for what movies? Most of you with a great degree of probability among the first will call her brilliant debut in "The Mask" or strong performances in "Charlie's Angels." Someone remembered her recent performances in "Knight and Day" and "Bad Teacher." People always mention her more serious work with Martin Scorsese or remember her wild hair, described insane Charlie Kaufman. That's about all. The most popular and vibrant role that is associated with this actress. But it would be unfair to honor her birthday not think of five other roles of Diaz. Those that are less well known, but not the worse in her career.
1. The Last Supper (1995)
After the success of "Masks" Cameron did not immediately land in a swirl of Hollywood filmmaking. First was the role in the independent film Stacy Title, noting earlier nominated for "Oscar" award for her short film Down on the Waterfront. Once in a motley ensemble cast film, she does not get lost and demonstrated ability to work in teams of equal characters. And yet such ambiguous.
Of all these black trash youth films "The Last Supper" stands still clever content. There being thoughtful conversation about many controversial things, including God, politics, Jews and homosexuals. Instructive, some tough story with a logical ending and long aftertaste.
2. Head Above Water (1996)
In 1996, Diaz was shot in four films: in Feeling Minnesota and Head Above Water she had to play a duet with popular actors, Keanu Reeves and Harvey Keitel, respectively. In She's the One, she appeared in the role of femme fatale, force them into the main characters. And, finally, her small role as a dissolute girl in Keys to Tulsa, often easily found on youtube keyword «sex» and «scene».
The plot of "Head above water" - to match all non-serious thriller, in which something has gone wrong. An occasional corpse unexpected visitor makes heroes unwind this difficult situation to the status of insoluble. Nerves, frustration and stupid things never lead to anything good in situations of this kind. Diaz also does not trouble to wear a lot of clothes and prefers to understand the story in only one bright yellow swimsuit.
3. Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her (1999)
By 1999, Diaz has reached the status of a real star. Resounding success “There's Something About Mary” brought her crowd of fans and a nomination for the "Golden Globe". Huge fees and roles in blockbusters were very close, but Cameron still finds time to play in one of the stories of Rodrigo Garcia.
Film about loneliness, which could be directed by Inyarittu if filmed drama is not about dogs, and about women. Also somewhat disconnected with each other stories, which in the end did little overlap. In Alejandro this movie could be a richer and more dramatic. Here too superficial stories with very relaxed final and no accent on heroes.
Diaz plays a beauty, which, unfortunately, can not see. But she does not lose the taste for life and tries to somehow compensate for the lack of vision and at the same time to support her sister.
More or less presenting an image of this Cameron Diaz, it's unlikely you'll be surprised by her appearance in the production of this independent, following roles in big projects like Charlie's Angels and Any Given Sunday. Faith's role was supposedly written for her.
Girl Phoebe (Jordana Brewster) decides to go on a trip to Europe in the footsteps of her deceased sister Faith (Cameron Diaz). The older sister was an activist of many American youth movements of the 70's: hippie, went on strike and have always been at the center of events. But in Portugal, something terrible had happened, and there she killed herself. 18-year-old Phoebe, having escaped from the house, decides to find out what caused Faith to jump off a cliff.
The film is about how easy it is to destroy the perfect image or lose your dreams. Life is not as soft and romantic as it may seem at first glance. The attempt to get to the truth does not always lead to positive results. Sometimes it is worth to accept the loss, no matter how bitter it may be.
5. In Her Shoes (2005)
By 2005, Diaz finally secured the status of a big Hollywood star and for each role receives royalties from six zeros. That does not prevent her in the future to pay attention to smaller projects in caliber, and her images are not limited beauties standing in the frame and fill the void. In Her Shoes - a glaring example.
Tragicomedy about two sisters, ladies adaptation of the novel. One, as it should be - obedient, approximate ugly. Second - Wild Child, drunk and unemployed beauty. And it turned out that they have to live together. Although one even like it. The problem is that the other, then at least and loves his sister, but obviously waiting for her in the direction of movement of work, a stable income and other apartments.

The heroes landed safely on a Moon, but there is no turning back.
The first official expedition to the moon under the UN flag on the moon UK. It turns out that one British scientist invented something called "Cavor," even before the birth of the Queen. This English gentleman flew to the moon back in 1899, along with a companion and his wife. Unfortunately, instead of beautiful cats on the moon again appeared unsympathetic aliens who felt the British disgusting. Stole their ship and were brutally killed for it. A moon since belongs to Her Majesty.
Film in two parts. The first - the purely scientific and serious, scientists discuss the satellite. The second part - a great fantasy about a future in which the Soviet Union built on the moon amusement park with blackjack and communism.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
The last film to the real moon landing. Stanley Kubrick closed the topic of colonization of the moon, showing it as the first step of mankind to conquer the universe. People find a message of ancient leading into the depths of space. And humanity is leaving behind and the Earth and its satellite with great amusement park.
Apollo 13 (1995)
The third real flight to the Moon and serious problems encountered on the way. Vehicle accident and attempts by the crew to return to Earth. All ended well, but the Moon has remained only in their dreams.
Sixth Element (2000)
Colony on the moon, too, sometimes built. And without any problems, but then again there have been producing clones and space superspy flew there on a tour. Beautiful lunar spaces and weightlessness, the perfect place for a comedy of nefarious people and aliens who want to take over the world!
The farther into the future, the more pragmatic people are. Spit into space, spit on the moon. Lone engineer monitors the production of a rare substance, and maintains record communicates exclusively with the robot. And of romance - just a sad look at the blue planet in times of mortal anguish.
Apollo 18 (2011)
More than a hundred years since the first film about the conquest of the moon, and mankind continues to inhabit it with something not very nice. For example, in this film a simple mission to collect samples of experimental suddenly confronted with strange aliens and demons die ignominiously. It's still early for mankind to get into space.
The Iron Sky (2012)
Yet people can live on the moon. To build airships, ride mopeds and live in underground bunkers. Moon is ready to shelter even the Nazis, which her lifeless expanse not a burden.
