Cameron Diaz, 49, brought her fans back to 1998 when the actress uploaded a video on Instagram on May 3, deceiving the hilarious and notorious hair gel scene from her iconic film There’s Something About Mary! 

The video, which is an advertisement for the wine that she originated called Avaline, was shared with her 9.3 million followers and features comedian Benito Skinner, 27.

But it’s when they arrived that the giant reveals happened. Moments before, the Diaz could be seen pleased and looking at pictures of herself from “Mary,” just in case fans weren’t able to make the connection for themselves a few minutes later.

After looking at him a moment, she dropped out of the frame and exploded back up and it was as if no time had passed at all.

‘Fast forward to a few years ago, my respectable friend Katherine Power and I were catching up over a glass – as the wine underway to flow, so did our conversation about it. She further added: ‘We began asking questions about our wine; which is so crazy because I had never done that before. I kind of just presumed that it was fermented grapes.’

Diaz said that in their preliminary research for the brand, she ‘assumed all wine was made from the organic grapes.

‘It never happened to me that wine could be made from anything other than an attractive grape, but then we comprehended that there is in fact commercial farming in every category and no concession with wine.’

In addition, Cameron Diaz — who is wedded to Benji Madden and has a 2-year-old daughter, Raddix, with the Good Charlotte rocker — stepped away from acting succeeding in her performance as Miss Hannigan during 2014’s Annie.

While looking on the Kevin Hart’s Peacock talk show, Hart to Heart, last year, the Charlie’s Angels star said she commenced to realize nearby age 40 that there were “so several parts of my life … that I wasn’t touching” or “handling.”

Despite acknowledging she loves acting, later in the conversation she added that she wanted to incorporate more effortlessness into her every day. “she just really wanted to make her life untroublesome by herself,” she further enlightened.
