As of Monday night, Cameron Diaz is officially a married woman. Her impromptu wedding to Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden comes after a long serial-dating streak for Diaz, who left behind a seriously impressive roster of ex-boyfriends. From baseball slugger Alex Rodriguez to Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto, here's a timeline of her former flames before she married Madden:

It was love at first sight for Diaz, then an aspiring model, and Carlos de la Torre, a video producer. "I spent the entire day trying to get him to talk to me," Diaz told People of their first encounter at a shoot for LA Gear. It must have worked, because the two dated for four years. The romance eventually fizzled out just as her acting career took off when she starred alongside Jim Carrey in "The Mask."

The "There's Something About Mary" co-stars dated for three years before splitting in 1998, as the young stars both wanted to focus more on their growing careers. "Cameron was a muse for me," Dillon told Parade magazine in a 2006 interview. "I hadn't been in any deep emotional relationships."

These two tried their best to keep their relationship under wraps, but Diaz and the Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman were often the talk of the tabloids in the early 2000s before going their separate ways in 2003.

Off to a romantic start, these two met after Diaz presented Timberlake with the award for Best Burp at the 2003 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. Their love eventually fizzled out in 2007, but the pair remain friends, and reunited to work on films like "Shrek 3" and "Bad Teacher."

Sparks between Diaz and British model Paul Sculfor first flew in June 2008, but the distance between the California lady and the U.K. native reportedly became too much for the couple to handle, and they broke up in May 2009.
Alex Rodriguez (2010-2011)

A-Rod and Diaz had an on-again, off-again romance between 2010 and 2011, but officially called it quits in September 2011. The baseball player had only kind words to say about the actress in a 2012 interview with the Insider: "She's probably one of the greatest human beings I've ever met, and just an amazing light," he said.
