Cameron Diaz Comforted by Gwyneth Paltrow After Father’s Death

Cameron Diaz has revealed that when her father died in 2008, fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow was kind enough to reach out to her and the two bonded during the difficult time:

”We became very close after my dad’s death. She reached out and it was very sweet. We bonded on that.”

Speaking on her love for British guys, Cameron says she loves how funny they are and even says she has a crush on Colin Firth because he is the “perfect” Englishman, while he’s also so charming and seems so nice:

”I love their (English guys’) sense of humour and the sense of chivalry and charm. It’s something that is innately a part of the culture – we don’t have that over here, it’s not the same in America. (Colin Firth) is the perfect Englishman. Just enough of the self-effacing to a point that it’s comfortable for other people, but also totally charming and engaging to where he makes you feel special.”

Cameron is a big fan of British comedy too, and grew up watching the likes of Monty Python:

”I love London. I love the Brits, I always have. I have a weak spot for them. I grew up on ‘Monty Python’. I love ‘Little Britain’. My grandfather used to watch Benny Hill all the time.”
