Cameron Diaz is planning to appear in a Los Angeles court today, to testify against a photographer who allegedly forged her signature on release forms that allowed him to sell topless photographs of the actress taken pre-stardom. The shots were taken by John Rutter in 1992, when Diaz was a 20-year-old model, and two years before The Mask would make her internationally well-known. Rutter allegedly contacted Diaz eleven years later, and threatened to sell the photographs to an "European bidder" unless she buy them herself for $3.3 million. Rutter has been charged with grand theft, forgery, and perjury, and faces up to six years in jail if convicted on all three counts. Meanwhile, Rutter has a civil suit pending against Diaz, on charges of fraud and breach of contract; *that* trial starts in  October.
