OTRC: Cameron Diaz doesn't want to direct movies, cites ADD

Cameron Diaz speaks to OnTheRedCarpet.com in January 2011 to promote her new film 'The Green Hornet.'

Cameron Diaz, who plays sexy secretary Lenore in the new film "The Green Hornet," says she has no interest in directing or producing films.

The 38-year-old actress is also known for "bombshell" roles such as the title character in the 1998 comedy "There's Something About Mary, Natalie in the "Charlie's Angels" films and Tina in the 1994 Jim Carrey movie "The Mask."

"I have no interest in directing movies or producing movies," Diaz told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "I like my role in making films. It's the perfect amount of involvement for me. I have ADD. I would never be able to spend two years making a movie or even one year. I would just, I'd be someplace else within a few short moments."

ADD stands for attention deficit disorder, which can make many sufferers unable to focus on one task for a prolonged amount of time.

"The Green Hornet" is based on radio, comic book and television serials and is set to be released on Friday. Rogen shed about 30 pounds to play main character Britt Reid, the playboy son of a wealthy newspaper publisher who inherits a media empire after his father dies. Rogen debuted a slimmer figure at the recent Los Angeles premiere for the movie.

Diaz's secretary character works for Reid, who enlists the help of Kato, an employee in his company, to become the crime fighter known as the Green Hornet. Christoph Waltz of "Inglourious Basterds" fame also stars as the villain Benjamin Chudnofsky, a Russian gangster.

"She really pushes her passion," Diaz said about her character. "She knows she's capable, she knows what she's doing. What she doesn't know, she's willing to learn and I love that about her. She also wasn't a push-over, she wasn't willing to be trampled over or be treated inappropriately."
