Cameron Diaz is the latest star to have been snapped in a sunny setting for the New Year as she was caught on camera sporting a new hairdo and subtle silver bracelet during a break in Hawaii.

The actress, who turns 40 in August, has caused something of a stir as she unveiled her blonde locks in a fresh bob do that was complemented by a subtle bangle on her wrist.

Hiding behind oversized sunglasses, Diaz looked toned and healthy in a grey and luminous green bikini, reflecting her sporty nature.

She appeared alongside former beau Justin Timberlake in last year’s Bad Teacher as a dysfunctional educator, and recently wrapped filming for the 2012 release of What to Expect When You’re Expecting.

It appears that age truly is nothing but a number for the bombshell, who looked almost half her true age while soaking up the sun.

Diaz hails from the Californian city of San Diego and lent her voice to the Shrek franchise as children’s favourite, Princess Fiona.
