It's hard to believe we first set eyes on Cameron Diaz more than 20 years ago.

At just 16 years old, she traveled the world in hopes of being discovered as a model, and, in 1994, she got her big break, starring in The Mask alongside Jim Carrey, according to IMDB.

Her career's been booming ever since. She's appeared in major Hollywood flicks and topped loads of celebrity roundups, including People's "50 Most Beautiful" list and Maxim's "Hot 100".

Here are 10 of our favorite throwback photos of Diaz throughout the years.
