Diaz plays model Julia Gianni in the Cameron Crowe remake of the 1997 Spanish film costarring Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz. The movie has Cruise playing David Aames, the handsome and confident inheritor of an international publishing empire, who is "living the dream" that includes a casual sexual relationship with model-of-the-moment Gianni. "Only Diaz, compelling as the embodiment of crazed sensuality, comes out of this project better off than when she went in," Times film critic Kenneth Turan wrote. The Oscar-nominated film also earned Diaz Golden Globe and SAG nominations for supporting actress.
