SHARE Diaz goes back to school to get `ugly duckling’ feel

Cameron Diaz went back to school to learn how to feel like an ugly duckling.

The model-turned-actress returned to her alma mater, Long Beach Polytechnic High School, to prepare for her upcoming film "There's Something About Mary," due out next month."Younger girls aren't comfortable with their bodies yet," Diaz says in Entertainment Weekly. "I learned a lot about walking from them."

The blonde who broke out in "My Best Friend's Wedding" says she relies on mood music as an acting tool in her "handbag full of tricks."

"I use music to bring emotion to the surface," she said.

Among the Hollywood leading men she looks forward to working with most is Harrison Ford.

"He's my poster boy for masculinity," Diaz said.
