London: Hollywood actress Eva Mendes says Cameron Diaz would be a perfect co-star to work with because she "takes care of business and doesn`t mess around".

"I think Cameron Diaz is a good buddy to have, you know? She takes care of business. And she doesn`t mess around. I`ve seen her in action and she`s kind of amazing," imdb.com quoted her as saying.

The 36-year-old actress also confessed she would like to direct more films.

"I just directed my first short film and Christina Ricci is in it. I have an amazing cast. I can`t tell you the joy I`ve found through directing. I would love to do something... I don`t know if I`m ready for a feature but that is something that excites me, for sure. I`m into creating a world and a vision."
