Cameron Diaz was on hand to introducer her 1998 film There’s Something About Mary at the AFI Night at the Movies presented by Target in Hollywood on Wednesday night.
Diaz informed the crowd that her recently deceased father made a cameo in the film, and let the audience know where they’d be able to spot him. She saidl
“My daddy’s in this movie for two seconds. My father just passed away recently, He’s the dude when Ben Stiller is leaving the jail and all the guys run afterwards – my dad has the long black-silver hair down to here who’s hamming it up in the front.”
Then imitating her fathers scene in the movie she let out a “Yeeeeaaah!” that got laughs and applause from the crowd.
“That’s my dad, so would you all just say hi to him, because it’s one of the few moments that we have of him immortalized on film.”
Emilio Diaz passed away in April due to pneumonia.
