Cameron Diaz films ‘The Counselor’ in Spain: great styling or tacky-looking?

These are some newish photos of Cameron Diaz and Javier Bardem on the set of Ridley Scott’s new film, The Counselor. The shoot has moved from London to Alicante, Spain. It feels like we’ve already talked about this film endlessly already. Michael Fassbender plays the lead guy, and Brad Pitt has a small part, and there were rumors that Angelina Jolie would play the Malkina role, but Jolie didn’t get it, for whatever reason, and now the role is Cameron’s. I tend to think the idea of Jolie in the role was always a pipe dream, that she was always scheduled to be working on Maleficent, but whatever. Good for Camy. I’d heard that the Malkina role was very sexy, but I wasn’t really expecting this va-va-voom styling for Cameron. Is it just me or does she look really good here? Cameron should wear more Versace, and these kinds of Versace-esque styles. She can really pull it off.

As for Javier Bardem and his spiky hair… I have no idea. I think it’s kind of funny that in seemingly every movie Javier does, they mess with his hair in some significant way. Like, in the new James Bond film, Javi is wearing a really ridiculous blonde wig. I guess the hair team on this film is calling this style “The Nolte”.

This film shoot feels like it’s been going on for a while, but partly that’s because Ridley Scott shut down production for a few weeks when his brother committed suicide. Our photo agencies have been getting lots of photos of Ridley since his brother’s death. We haven’t covered them, because I find that sort of “So how is the family doing now?” coverage to be really gross. I will say this: Ridley just looks tired and sad. I would imagine he’s just trying to get through this production without losing it.

I’m also including a photo of Michael Fassbender from last week, when they were filming scenes in England. Sigh… this is going to be a good movie, isn’t it? I wonder if Fassy is in Spain too. Hm… I would love to go to Spain with Fassy.

    Wow, she looks good, she’s really rockin it! And Javier looks like he stuck his finger in a light socket..

    I’m not a fan of Cameron Diaz AT ALL but I must say, from the photos, I don’t think I’ve seen her look better.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      I agree with you.

      I think she looks great, I’m loving her hair (yes dark roots and all).

    • Chellez says:

      trashy is definitely her sexiest look. no shade either. this is the best she’s looked since the mask. her beauty was mesmerizing in that movie! and this is a reminder that she’s still got it. bravo.

      too bad she’ll never be like this in real life. Gwyneth would never approve.

  3. BreeinSEA says:

    What’s with the (fake) tattoo on her collarbone? She looks pretty but she IMO was the most gorgeous in The Mask (yes I’m serious).

  4. Katie says:

    I have to disagree. I think she looks old, especially in the second photo. The hair isn’t doing her any favors either. The black roots and bright blond highlights just scream low rent.

  5. BooBooLaRue says:

    Cam-Cam is tacky and these photos look so natural!

  6. roxy750 says:

    She looks smokin!

  7. Trek Girl says:

    I understand making comments about her face, you know, if you think she’s pretty or not, but it makes absolutely no sense to critique what she’s wearing or why she has a tattoo when she is clearly filming a movie.

    The clothes, makeup, and tattoo are for the movie!

  8. Kate says:

    LOL “I wonder if Fassy is in Spain too.” Don’t gossip blogs have access to all sorts of photo agencies? He’s been there the whole time. There are pictures of him on this same set at the same time yesterday, as well as numerous pictures of him in Spain today and 2 days ago.

    I want BOTH pairs of her shoes!

  10. chloe says:

    The Nolte, that cracks me up I saw these pictures yesterday and was trying to think what his hair reminded me of.

  11. lori says:

    She always looks tacky and busted to me. But here it works for her. In the fuzzier shots she looks like Ellen Barkin. Now she’s sexy!

  12. heatheradair says:

    YES — she looks i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e. Strange that she can channel sort of an “early Pam Anderson” aesthetic with that liner and the thin brows, but it ends up looking sultry rather than dated. THIS is her look.

  13. Me Too says:

    Never been a Cami fan. She’s over rated. Can’t act worth beans. Not wowed by the look either. Looks like 80s redux. She reminds me of the mom of an old friend who drank so much she’d cover up her breath with tic tacs. Bet she smells like mint…

  14. BreeinSEA says:

    I figured it was for the movie (the tat).

  15. maneki neko says:

    “The Nolte”

    tee hee

  16. blueanemone says:

    i’m sorry, but javier bardem looks like a troglodyte. I just can’t see anything attractive in this man.

  17. Jen says:

    She looks exactly like Ellen Barkin 20 years ago in the 2nd photo.

    • trina says:

      She does look like Ellen Barkin! And not, cute 1980s Barkin, she looks like over-plasticized, over-lipped Barkin
