Cameron Diaz issues firm denial of any association with Epstein after being mentioned in deposition

 January 9, 2024

Star Hollywood actress Cameron Diaz was mentioned in recently released court documents that seemed to indicate a connection to deceased billionaire financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to Los Angeles Fox affiliate KTTV.

Diaz was one of several major Hollywood celebrities mentioned in a sworn deposition by one of Epstein's alleged underage victims, though the woman acknowledged that she'd never personally met the named actress.

For her part, Diaz was quick to release a statement through a publicist that firmly denied any sort of association with the late disgraced Epstein.

Diaz insists no association with Epstein "whatsoever"

The New York Post's Page Six reported that Diaz, after being found to have been named in the recently unsealed court documents related to a past lawsuit filed by one of Epstein's alleged victims, swiftly sought to set the record straight about her supposed connection to the dead convicted pedophile.

A rep for the Hollywood actress said in a statement Friday, "Cameron never met Jeffrey Epstein, nor was she ever in the same place as him or had any association with him whatsoever, regardless of the fact he may or may not have mentioned her name or implied that he knew her."

Indeed, the surrounding context of the alleged victim's sworn testimony in a deposition several years ago made it clear that the alleged victim had never met Diaz, that the actress was not accused or suspected of any wrongdoing, and that her name had likely only been mentioned by Epstein as a form of braggadocious "name-dropping" of the major celebrities he supposedly was friends with.

Celebrities mentioned as part of Epstein's "name-dropping" habit

The U.K. Independent reported that among the court-ordered Epstein documents released recently was the sworn deposition of alleged Epstein victim Johanna Sjoberg, who rattled off the names of several big stars in her prior testimony.

Included along with Cameron Diaz were other major Hollywood stars like Cate Blanchett, Leonardo DiCaprio, George Lucas, Kevin Spacey, and Bruce Willis, among others.

At one point in the transcribed interview, an attorney referenced a media report that had asserted that Sjoberg had personally met stars like Blanchett and DiCaprio through Epstein, but Sjoberg replied, "I did not meet them, no."

"When I spoke about them, it was when I was massaging [Epstein], and he would get off -- he would be on the phone a lot at that time, and one time he said: 'Oh, that was Leonardo,' or, 'That was Cate Blanchett, or Bruce Willis.' That kind of thing."

Sjoberg proceeded to reply affirmatively to the lawyer's suggestion that Epstein had been "name-dropping" the big celebrities he knew and further denied ever actually meeting Blanchett, DiCaprio, or Diaz when asked specifically about those three individuals in connection to Epstein.

Epstein dead, Maxwell serving prison sentence

KTTV reported that the released documents were part of a 2015 lawsuit filed by alleged Epstein victim Virginia Guiffre against close Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell that had been settled in 2017 but has now been unsealed and publicly released as part of a media-driven lawsuit seeking transparency in the secretive Epstein case.

The Independent noted that Epstein had been arrested in 2005 for allegedly paying an underage girl for sex but dodged any real accountability with a dubious plea agreement in 2008 that saw him serve minimal time before being set free again.

Epstein is alleged to have committed suicide in a jail cell after being arrested and charged with sex trafficking in 2019. His former associate, Maxwell, is currently serving a 20-year sentence after she was convicted in 2022 for her role in helping to obtain and manage Epstein's stable of underage victims over the years, per Page Six.
