Then again, Diaz won a legion of youthful admirers with her providing the voice for the spirited Princess Fiona in the 2001 animated hit "Shrek," also featuring the voices of Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy. Her supporting role in that year's another hit movie "Vanilla Sky" earned Diaz even more critical praise, won her a third Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
