Cameron Doesn't Do Security Lines

1/17/2007 3:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cameron Diaz is used to getting the royal treatment, and yesterday at LAX was no exception.

Although "The Holiday" star carried her own bags and used the ticket kiosk to check in, Diaz was soon met by an airport employee who helped her get through the necessary security hassle as quickly as possible. Must be nice!

Cameron is allowed to cut to the head of the security line, bypassing all other patiently waiting passengers. Movie star coming through! Luckily, A-listers can't sidestep all the rules, as Diaz still had to remove her shoes to pass through the metal detectors. While she's not a suspected terrorist, Cami's Golden Globes ruffled fiasco did terrorize all who laid eyes on it!

With her ex Justin Timberlake performing in L.A. that same night, it looks like Diaz tried to get out of Dodge as soon as possible.

my opinion    

Why does making movies or dating a singer give Cameron the right to by pass security? Or is the failure of the security personnel to treat her like everyone else. When do the glitteratti of LA begin living like real Americans obeying security procedures, traffic laws, underage drinking and drug laws.

Don't get down on Cameron, she's in enough pain right now. I worked for an airline at LAX for five years. There people called "meet and greet." They work for companies that are paid to assist the stars and the wealthy get through the airport with as little muss and fuss as possible.

Big deal! They move celebs through security quicker because otherwise everyone goes crazy. It's actually the best thing for everyone. Think about it - celebs often create a frenzy due to over-eager fans. The airports probably don't want that to happen because then someone might be able to slip past security while they are trying to control the mob of over-zealous fans. I think the airport did the right thing. Cammie D does not deserv e all the hate she has been getting lately.

Like someone mentioned already, celebrities, although human like the rest of us, cannot be hanging out in long lines with everyone else just for security purposes.

Now with that said, I envy the hell out of celebrities for this 'meet and greet' treatment.

I just don't like her acting ever since I saw that movie Gangs of New York. It's like nails on a chalk board and I'd rather let someone throw up on me than ever see her in a movie again.

Not only that but she remains to have the sterotypical high school cheerleader coolnes mentality, where she can do whatever she wants with no consequence.

I do feel bad because she's not as cute as she thinks, chalk it up to too much partying at a young age, but her skin looks like sh*t.

Proactive Baby!!

Its no big deal. Stop getting jealous folks. Look at the reasoning behind it. If she waited in line it would cause a disturbance aka "Security Risk". Tons of people would begin crowding around her from all over the airport and it would disrupt the lines. Its not because she's better than you or me. GET OVER IT aka "STOP HATIN!"

People who kiss up to celebrities should go f*** themselves. And celebrities who get special treatment can go f*** themselves as well.

These fat little f***s following real people around with their cameras need a good sh*t kicking, know what i mean?! As a star f***er myself im starting to get pissed at seeing every god dam second of a movie stars life. Plus they donâ%u20AC%u2122t have any training or skill, they just go out buy a digi camera, harass people and put the sh*t up on some website.

Like i said, a good sh*t kicking would take care of us finding out about useless information. Of course stars get special treatment you tmz tards... F***ing enablers, your worse than scientologists.

Side note to the comments about her skin.


There is like a website somewere that mentions like all the stras flaws. This is something shes born with, the movies are just good at covering it up. Check out the right side of Robert Redfords face as an example...

Sorry, all, but you don't know what you're talking about here. Anyone, celebrity or otherwise can cut the security line and receive special treatment at any major airport. You PAY for it (as Ms. Diaz no doubt did), and it's called an "airline rep." These individuals generally meet your car at the curb, have spoken with your driver prior to your arrival at the airport and take your baggage which has already been checked in. They then give you your boarding pass, which they obtain on your behalf prior to arrival, and escort you through the lines. If you have a first class ticket, they will take you to the first class lounge, wait with you until boarding time, and assist you to the boarding gate.

It's not special treatment, it's called an airport rep, and it usually costs $125 on each end of the flight. There is nothing wrong with Ms. Diaz taking advantage of this service which is available to anyone.

PS. This is a great service for those travelling with children, going to an unfamiliar airport, or who simply want to have an "extra special experience" on a special occasion trip. For those that can afford it, this service becomes a habit, because it makes things so easy on departure and arrival.
