Cameron Diaz Urges Parents Not To Destroy Shrek Dream For Kids
Cameron Diaz is urging parents not to destroy the magic of Shrek for thei r kids by telling them she's Princess Fiona.
The actress admits she's often confronted with giddy mums and dads and confused youngsters, who have just been told that the woman in front of t hem is the real Fiona.
She tells Wenn, "I've had parents come up and go, 'You know who this is ? This is Princess Fiona.' Kids are, like, literally crying with tears.
"I try to stop the moms before they tell them because, as a kid, you be lieve the characters you're watching and you fall in love with them and y ou want them to be real. You don't want to believe that there's a human b eing behind them.
"It's the same way you want to believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. You don't want that myth to be ruined and dispelled. Let Fiona exist as Fiona."
