4. CINEMA: THREE INSTANT STARS


How to become a Hollywood star? For Cameron Diaz a single audition was enough to make it. Carey Mulligan had to use nerve and charm. Rosario Dawson instead had to do exactly nothing…

BLONDE POWER: CAMERON DIAZ

Without experience, but already wanted by everybody: this is what happened to Cameron Diaz even before starting her acting career. At 16 she began modeling, drawing the attention because of her atypical beauty, the result of an extraordinary mix of American, Cuban, Dutch, German, English and Cherokee ancestry in her family. At her first audition she was chosen over several renowned actresses to star in The Mask with Jim Carrey. Despite having no acting experience, the producers wanted her so much that they resolved to giving her acting lessons whilst the movie was being filmed. It was 1994 and the movie, which entered the top 10 chart of that year, crowned Diaz as one of the sexiest Hollywood actresses.

CAREY MULLIGAN: A GIRL WITH GUTS

Carey Mulligan, instead, knew he wanted to be an actress since when, at the age of 14 she saw her brother acting in a school play. At 18 she was rejected by all the best Drama schools of England. Moreover, her parents looked unfavourably on this kind of career and were pushing her to opt for a 'normal' university. But Mulligan wasn't to be diverted. She secretly wrote to the principal of her high school, asking to be put in touch with an actor that was going to take part in a conference at her school. That actor was Julian Fellowes. He himself introduced her to an agent looking for a new face for a part in Pride and Prejudice. And so Carey was given the role of Kitty Bennett, one of the leading ones in the movie, by the side of Keira Knightley. This definitely proves that nerve and initiative are never enough!

ROSARIO DAWSON: A MIRACLE IN NEW YORK!

How many girls take part in a movie which is going to make it to the big screen? It seems like a urban myth, but that's what actually happened to Rosario Dawson. When 15, Rosario was sitting in front of her house in New York, planning on becoming a marine biologist, when photographers Larry Clark and Harmony Korine saw her and decided her face was perfect for the movie they were writing. Kids came out in 1995 and the then-unknown Afro-Cuban girl left behind her economically precarious childhood to enter the world of blockbuster movies like Sin City and Men in Black.
