Cameron Diaz may have been a mule who dealt drugs
In an appearance on the Second Life podcast, Cameron Diaz laughingly shared a horrific experience that happened to her while she was a struggling model in Paris in the ’90s, before she ever found fame.
On the podcast, Diaz revealed that she “didn’t work a day” in Paris as she “couldn’t book a job to save my life.” Instead, she found a job transporting “costumes” in a suitcase from Paris to Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar. However, she strongly suspects that instead of costumes, illegal drugs were in the suitcase. “Really, I think I was like a mule transporting drugs to Morocco,” she said. “I swear to god. It was before TSA or something.” She added that she suspects she got this job because she was a “blonde, blue-eyed girl in Morocco” who wore “ripped jeans and platform boots.” She said it was all “really uncertain”.
In addition, a customs officer in Morocco once actually asked her to open the suitcase. At that point, however, she dropped out. “Literally all the calculations in my head were running back like, ‘What the heck is in that suitcase? … I said, ‘I don’t know, it’s not mine, I have no idea who owns it.'” She finished by revealing, “That was my only job I ever got in Paris.” Though we did really shocked she couldn’t find work in the City of Lights – did you finally see this adorable photoshoot with 17-year-old Diaz that the Daily Mail dug up?
