Cameron Diaz has gone from golden-girl Hollywood actress to teasing tough-girl in one sexy cover shoot which seems to completely overhaul her image.

With cone bra, thigh-high black leather Prada boots and tiny shorts, she looks like bad-girl Madonna from her controversial 1990 Blonde Ambition Tour.

And her hairstyle - in an Agyness Deyn-style peroxide crop - is the spitting image of Madonna's in the 1986 True Blue cover shot.

If there was any doubt of the look Diaz is going for, the cover's strapline 'Get into the groove' gives the game away - a chorus line from one of Madge's most famous songs from that tour, 'Into the groove'.

The 36-year-old actress was photographed by duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott in London for the cover of the V Magazine Beauty Issue 2009, set to hit stands on July 7.

The bra was fashioned by the stylist and made from gaffer tape.

To complete the image she has even had a tattoo of a naked woman in a rose painted onto her arm by an on-set artist.

In the interview with the magazine, the star speaks about her new role in the movie My Sister's Keeper, in which she plays a mother, and says she is now looking to take on meatier roles.

In the film, an adaptation of Jodi Picoult best-selling novel, Diaz plays Sarah Fitzgerald, the devoted mother of a teenage girl dying of cancer.

Her younger daughter, played by Abigail Breslin, was genetically engineered to be a perfect donor match to the sick girl, but has decided to become medically emancipated from her parents, with the help of a showboat lawyer played by Alec Baldwin.

It comes as a heavy movie role for Diaz, more famed for laughing her way across the big screen in movies such as There's Something About Mary and Charlie's Angels.

The actress denied she took the part with Oscar hopes in mind, but admitted she does want to take her career forward by playing meatier roles.

However she ruled out directing or producing movies.

She said: 'I don't make movies for my ego. I do them for my personal growth and to give something to an audience.

'I'm not going to be the 23-year-old ingénue again. If I tried to hold on to that, I'd be a pretty unhappy individual.'

Diaz said playing a mother in the film did not make her necessarily want to have children and speaking about motherhood she said: 'I don't declare either way if I'm going to have children. I don't know what will happen... and I'm totally fine with that.'
