While filming an episode of new MTV travel show "Trippin'" in Africa, two members of Cameron Diaz's camera crew were attacked by a lion.

Diaz, star of "Charlie's Angels" and "Gangs of New York," said she heard screams for help one morning from two crewmen who had wandered off for a restroom break, the World Entertainment News Network reported Monday.

"I can hear, I know exactly, like instinctually (it's) the paws of this cat just running," she said, "and I hear this growling and then I hear this 'Aarrrghh'. I was like, 'Was that Tony or Tripp, I'm not sure...' It was one of the lions charging a couple of the guys. They ran like little babies back into the house. I, of course, grabbed my camera and ran outside."
