Cameron Diaz has nose
for surf in Waikiki

It wasn't quite the birthday in paradise Cameron Diaz was hoping for.

Diaz, the world's highest-paid actress, said she broke her nose Saturday -- on her 31st birthday -- during a surfing accident off Waikiki Beach.

Yesterday, Diaz was wearing two tiny bandage strips on the bridge of her nose, which appeared normal with no visible swelling.

"I'm fine," she told The Associated Press. "But I'm just totally bummed out because I can't go surfing any more."

Diaz said she was surfing with her older sister and a couple of friends when she was involved in a collision -- she wiped out and someone's board hit her in the face. Diaz and her sister said the accident was caused by someone outside their group.

Her sister, Chimene, said it could have been worse if the board that struck Diaz wasn't made of foam. She also said her sister's nose looked a lot better yesterday than it did over the Labor Day weekend.

The blonde star of two "Charlie's Angels" films said the worst part is that it happened at the beginning of her trip. It happened on her first day of a two-week Hawaiian vacation with her friends and family, she said.

But Diaz was still upbeat about her Hawaiian vacation. "I love this place," Diaz said.

Based on earnings of $42.2 million in 2001, Diaz took the highest-paid actress crown from Julia Roberts, according to the 2004 edition of the Guinness World Records.
