Cameron Diaz defends her passion for snowboarding

28 November 2006 00:00

Mainstream US media are all running with the story that Cameron Diaz likes snowboarding so much that, despite once being injured, she's not going to give it up. This may be a sign that it's a slow news week in the US, but it does make Ms Diaz seem exceptionally like the rest of us snowsports lovers. The only bit we're less sure about what exactly is meant by "without ever touching the ground" - either she got stuck on a chairlift or she's more than just Charlie's Angel:

Cameron Diaz to keep snowboarding shocker...
Ms. Anti- Paparazzi Cameron Diaz likes to relax by snowboarding - and despite her recent injuries, she has no plans to give up the exhilarating sport.

She says, "I love speed and adrenaline. When I take time off work I like to be outside. Snowboarding is an amazing escape for me - riding from the top of the hill to the bottom without ever touching the ground is so exciting."

"You're out there with all your friends, you're on the slopes and it's a beautiful day. It's just the best feeling in the whole world."

"Last year (05), I broke my wrist when somebody knocked me over. The funny thing was that I could have been flying down the hill at 35 miles per hour, but in fact I was just standing there when they hit me from the side. I fell down awkwardly on my hand and that was that."
