The Charlie's Angels star was left devastated when her dad Emilio died in 2008 while she was filming My Sister's Keeper, about a girl who suffers from leukaemia.

Diaz was relieved when she was offered her latest film role with her Vanilla Sky co-star, because she knew the action adventure would help her overcome her sadness.

She says, "I'd spent a year in grief with my family and I just wanted some fun and to go on a great adventure. I wanted to spend some time just having a laugh without it being something heavy."
