Cameron Díaz’s father, Cuban-American Emilio Díaz, passed away Tuesday morning, reports.

The There’s Something About Mary star’s father died at age 58, after the flu he’d been battling turned into pneumonia. According to reports, production on the actress’s upcoming film My Sister’s Keeper was shut down when she found out the sad news.

The 35-year-old Cameron – who graces the cover of the latest British GQ magazine – has a sister, Chimene, 37.
