See the Shrek 2 star as she evolves from cheerleading teen to Hollywood leading lady. By Serena Kappes


Diaz is very close with her family, dad Emilio and mom Billie (top, in 1995) and older sister Chimene (in 2000). When the Diaz sisters were kids, Emilio had them watch football on TV to emphasize the importance of teamwork. Today, Diaz dotes on Chimene's daughter Chloe, 7: "(She) is a wonderful aunt," says a friend.
