Cameron Diaz says she and pal Gwyneth Paltrow and their glam squads primped together before the Academy Awards.

" Drew [ Barrymore] and I get ready together a lot," Diaz tells Zap2it. "And Drew was not going this year, and Gwyneth was. And we had the best time!"

"Our hair and makeup [artists] know her hair and makeup [artists]," she continues. "And I get to look at her dresses. You want the opinions of a girlfriend."

Diaz presented wearing a lovely Gucci cream-colored gown with a side ruffle that flowed into a train. Paltrow wore a stunning Tom Ford white dress with a cape, which quickly became an Oscars' darling.

"I thought she looked stunning," Diaz says of Paltrow. "That dress is one of my favorite of all time dresses ever! It was the sleekest, coolest and she was like a statue. She was beautiful."

And as for the cape that had some sniping?

"The cape was my favorite part of it," Diaz says. "You are so bada**! You shut it down!"
