Cameron Diaz thinks one gig in her early 90s modeling days may have actually been a cover for illegal activity.
While appearing on the "Second Life" podcast, the "There's Something About Mary" star recalled living abroad and saving up her money in hopes of becoming a major model in Paris. However, she quickly realized that jobs were pretty much nonexistent.
"I didn't work a day. I was there a full year and didn't work one day. I couldn't book a job to save my life," she told podcast host Hillary Kerr of trying to get work in Paris. "Then I got one job but, really, I think I was a mule carrying drugs to Morocco — I swear to God."
In those days, airport Transportation Security Administration wasn't a thing.
Cameron believes she may have been an unwitting drug runner, as her employers gave her a locked suitcase that she was told contained her "costumes."
After arriving in Morocco with the bag in hand, officials quizzed her about it.
"All of the calculations in my head went running back, like 'what the f*** is in this suitcase?' I'm this blond-haired, blue-eyed girl in Morocco, it's the '90s, I'm wearing torn jeans and platform boots and my hair down, and this is really unsafe," she said. "I told them, 'I don't know, it's not mine, I've no idea whose it is.'"
She ended up leaving the bag with authorities.
"That was my only job I ever got in Paris," she said.
Not only after, though, Cameron's life would change after being spotted by a casting agent in Los Angeles who wanted her to star opposite Jim Carrey in 1994's "The Mask." Cameron would later star in a string of movies, making her a household name.
Although she retired from acting in 2014, Cameron announced that she's un-retiring to act in an upcoming Netflix project with Jamie Foxx.
