Diaz loves Shrek the Musical, but says definite no to starring in itDecember 15th, 2008 - 4:28 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Dec 15 (ANI): Even though American actress Cameron Diaz has professed her love for Shrek the Musical , she has no desire to star in it.
Diaz, 36, who does the voice-over for Princess Fiona in the Shrek film franchise, was full of praise for the musical adaptation of the animated blockbuster when it opened at Broadway on December 14 night.
But her enthusiasm for the musical did not go as far as playing the part of Fiona, reports the China Daily.
No. Absolutely not. What they do up there … is, to me, impossible. It’’s
wonderful, though. They”ve done such a great job. They worked really hard, and it really pays off, she stated.
The part of Fiona was played by actress Sutton Foster, and actor Brian d”Arcy James played the part of Shrek, the titular smelly green ogre who lives in a swamp.
Its hilarious, Diaz said.
There’’s so many laughs. … It’’s great to see all the actors playing it together, because when we do it for the animated (films), we never see each other. We don”t work together, she added.
Diaz reprises her voice role in the fourth “Shrek” film, slated for release in 2010. Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy will return as Shrek and Donkey, respectively. (ANI)
