Cameron Diaz Claims She Was A Drug Mule Before Becoming An Actress
Actress Cameron Diaz, 49, recently opened up about being a young model who took a modeling job that had nothing to do with modeling.
When she started in the industry, Diaz moved to Paris to pursue a modeling career. In the U.S., she’d had some success as a catalog model. But after a year in Paris, she was offered only one modeling job in Morocco.
“This was the early ’90s and they gave me a locked suitcase that had my ‘costumes’ in it,” Diaz said. When she arrived at the airport, she suddenly realized she might have been a pawn.
“I think I was a mule carrying drugs to Morocco – I swear to God,” Diaz said.
Diaz admits to getting nervous when the officials asked about the contents of her suitcase.
“The guy was like, whose suitcase is this, can somebody open it,” Diaz said.
“And I was like literally, just all the calculations in my head went running back like what the f*ck is in that suitcase,” Diaz said as she realized she had no idea what she was carrying.
“I’m like this blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl in Morocco. It’s the nineties, I’m wearing torn jeans and platform boots and my hair down … this is really unsafe,” Diaz said.
Last month Diaz announced that she’s coming out of retirement to star opposite Jamie Fox in Back In Action.
