Cameron Diaz proved that, at 36, she still has the moves as she launched into a burlesque dance on U.S. television last night.The actress agreed to take part in a dance-off during an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and her efforts certainly impressed the studio audience who cheered wildly.
Diaz and host Fallon took it in turns to out-do each other in the dancing stakes as they cavorted around to a funky melody and drum beat played by the show’s band.
But while the host looked a little out of his depth, it was Diaz who stole the limelight as she swung and shook her derriere in a sultry display.The skit began as the pair moved from the interviewing table to the performance area of the studio.Fallon started by clapping his hands to the music while Diaz warmed up with a few stretches and got into the groove by clicking her fingers.
With the host making the first moves, the actress then came back at him by twirling around with her hands in the air.
She then upped the ante by swinging her hips and wobbling her extremely long legs in an accomplished and controlled manoeuvre, which Fallon then attempted to replicate.
Towards the end the actress sticks out her arm towards Fallon in a ‘speak to the hand’ gesture before calling him a ‘bi-atch’. He then concedes defeat and says, ‘You win, you win, you win.’
Dressed in black satin trousers and top with towering heels, the blonde wouldn’t have looked out of place in a professional dance troupe.Diaz, who voices Princess Fiona in the Shrek films, has also just recorded a guest appearance for the upcoming 40th season of Sesame Street.
