Cameron Diaz is a movie star who doesn’t make movies these days, but she still has some great stories from her time as A -Lister In fact, she recently told a wild story from the set of her 2006 feature film, The Holiday, where she was tasked with walking in high heels for an entire week and shared the details behind what happened and why in a recent interview and after reading it, my own feet with

You may already remember the scene in The Holiday – and spoilers, if you haven’t seen that movie in the last 15 years in which Cameron Diaz ‘Amanda just spent her Christmas break in England making a romantic bond with you is about to return to sunny California but decides instead that it is time to be brave.So she decides to run back to a cabin.The only problem is that Amanda wears designer clothes and heels on the scene and Diaz keeps in the shoes Had to run As Cameron Diaz recently announced in an interview with Vulture, they unfortunately shot the scene again and again, but ultimately only used two takes of Amanda that ran back through the landscape

They only took two shots, but we shot like ten shots of me over ten different fields And I’m wearing this Valentino cashmere, a wool trench coat, a cashmere turtleneck and jeans, and my high-heeled boots And we have that whole slope covered with this artificial snow, which was completely biodegradable

The artificial snow thing was a given, but I like the added detail that it was biodegradable – no asbestos here! By now this scene has become very notable and popular in the film.It’s exactly as Diaz described it, running down a snow-covered alley, over a bridge and through a field with a short clip, and finally even pausing to catch her breath is a remarkable movie scene, but considering the fact that Cameron Diaz sprinted for a week to get around: 45 seconds of footage, the entire acting gig looks a lot less glamorous

I suppose things could be worse.Cameron Diaz, for example, seems to have a pretty good attitude towards all the running she’s made.She also wore heels, but it’s worth noting that they were heeled boots , so she didn’t kill herself in stilettos or anything. And there was an additional side effect, according to the actress:

It’s all these long shots of how really far away I’m just that little thing that runs in the distance And of course the music blows up as I shoot it So I got the pace that I’m running at I’m flying this field down and up that hill and down that line of trees And the camera is on a trail and it is following me as I run through the trees I was literally so fit by the end of this week I probably ran seven miles a day on those heels

But when you factor in scenes like the running scene from The Holiday, I kind of understand why Cameron Diaz is “retired” from acting these days she has a baby at home and wine to sell; She doesn’t have to walk around in heels for hours on end for someone else’s pleasure (in this case director Nancy Meyers) Given that Cameron Diaz also told the news agency the scene was completely blank and it wasn’t until later that she learned that running in heels was really out of her control

There are many advantages to being an actor or actress, but running on heels apparently isn’t one of them (a fact that Bryce Dallas Howard can attest to as well) The good news is that the scene in The Holiday plays well, not as flaky cuts off, so it was probably worth it, even if seven days of effort only resulted in two shots
