CAMERON DIAZ has become the new poster girl for America's Girl Scouts, thanks to her role as a ogre-loving princess in new movie SHREK (2001).
Diaz voiced the character of PRINCESS FIONA in the animated hit, and now Girl Scouts leaders are keen to use her character's example to boost their members' self-confidence and hopefully instill good values in them.
San Fernando Valley Girl Scouts councillor CAROL COOK says, "I think her character covers many issues for girls. " The San Fernando branch have now linked up with movie studio DREAMWORKS to set up special screenings, badges and posters. (KL/EW/RP)
