How sweet! In honor of Cameron Diaz’s 44th birthday, bestie Gwyneth Paltrow posted a sentimental photo of the two blonde actresses, accompanied by Diaz’s Charlie’s Angels co-star and longtime pal Drew Barrymore.
The lifestyle guru and mother of two reached out to Diaz Tuesday night on Instagram, where she called the newly married Annie actress her best friend. “Dear @camerondiaz, before the day ends, I bid you a happy birthday, and I hit the ground with gratitude for getting to be one of the women who calls you a best friend,” she wrote.
Their friendship reportedly grew stronger than ever in 2008 when Paltrow reached out after Diaz's father passed away. The talented twosome has been incredibly close since—Diaz even taught Paltrow the ultimate life skill: how to blow-dry her hair! Both actresses have also made it a point to support each other, promoting the other’s lifestyle books (like Diaz’s The Longevity Book and Paltrow’s It’s All Easy) via Instagram.
It's All Easy-or should I say the easiest thing on earth to do is to LOVE this woman and her cooking...she is the epitome of a nurturer...she cooks with her heart and soul...and it is guaranteed that every meal, dish, snack, even whisper of a recipe that she creates will feed yours...it is her essence to share and to include. That's why it makes sense that her new cookbook #ItsAllEasy shows you that you can actually cook those meals you always wish you had the time for...and not only will it be all easy I promise you that it will also be DELICIOUS, HEALTHY and NOURISHING...🍴🍋🍳💓🤓 @gwynethpaltrow
