‘I think I was a mule carrying drugs to Morocco’
According to the Daily Mail, Cameron Diaz on the podcast with host Hillary Kerr said, “I started working as a catalogue model and I got enough money to move to Paris and get an apartment, which I shared with a girl who is still one of my best friends.” The renowned star continued, “I was there a full year and didn’t work one day. I couldn’t book a job to save my life. Then I got one job but, really, I think I was a mule carrying drugs to Morocco- I swear to God.”
Diaz further explained the situation saying, “I’m this blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl in Morocco. I’m wearing torn jeans and platform boots with my hair down - this is really unsafe. I told them, 'I don’t know, it’s not mine, I’ve no idea whose it is.’ That was the only job I got in Paris.” The actress revealed that she left the suitcase with the customs when she returned to France after her modeling gig.
