A huge crowd marked the launch of the new Hoyts Melbourne Central cinemas for the Australian Premiere of the film IN HER SHOES. The reason for the crowd was the appearance of a Hollywood superstar on the catwalk. Cameron Diaz came to Australia to promote the film and drew much cheering and anticipation by autograph/photo seekers as she walked the long red carpet with her co-star Toni Collette.

They were joined by local celebrities and a packed media section who wanted the opportunity to see Cameron, one of the highest-profile and paid Hollywood female stars. She and Toni were in great spirits as they chatted to media outlets. Cameron told me that she was thrilled to be back in Australia, having loved working on this film, and with Toni and legendary entertainer Shirley Maclaine. It was a chance for her to be free from the ordeals she has faced from the “stalker case” which saw a man arrested just days prior to her visit. Her boyfriend Justin Timberlake has also faced court battles so, for Cameron, it was an opportunity to be relieved of these pressures and have fun with fans and friends in Australia. Toni said that it was great to work alongside Cameron and also mentioned that her music career is set to take off in the New Year. Toni was accompanied by her musician husband, Dave Galafassi.
