Screen beauty Cameron Diaz launched a bitter attack on Chilean paparazzi as soon as she arrived in the country's capital,

Santiago.

The GANGS OF NEW YORK star went "a little ballistic" at snappers upon arriving by plane to the South American country - because she wasn't looking her best, according to reports.

One source told THE SCOOP website, "The problem was that she was not wearing makeup and her complexion is quite bad and she did not look good.

"The usually nice Cameron was not happy to be photographed. She was furious and screamed, putting all the photographers on the run."
