Even in her mid 40’s, there is still Something About San Diego’s Cameron Diaz! Since playing the lead role of high school sweetheart in There’s Something About Mary this gifted woman has had a lot to live up to. Her body screams femininity and the behind the scenes regime is to thank. . To preserve her magnificent pins she braves plenty of leg exercises such as squats, calf raises and a tremendous amount of jogging; then she gets adventurous with jet skiing and paddle boarding. She has a long term trustworthy fitness coach who brings out the best of all her assets.
There were times when I wished Luhrmann had made a smaller, squarer adaptation, because he seems to have the talent for it; I never would have imagined saying such a thing after seeing his other films, which have their merits but are hardly standard-bearers for subtlety. Alas, this "Gatsby" is so immense and overwrought — lumbering across the screen like the biggest, trashiest, loudest parade float of all time — that its intimacies feel like shared secrets between the director and the viewer. The movie's like a guest at a wild gathering who finds the frenzy tiresome and would rather be at home reading, but can't let on because he's supposed to be the life of the party.
