Charlie might be missing one of his angels, but thankfully Cameron Diaz has been located transforming the set of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7 into heaven on Earth.

The cast of the Emmy-winning franchise's first-ever all-winners edition exclusively tells EW what it was like watching the recently retired Charlie's Angels and There's Something About Mary actress temporarily re-enter the realm of Hollywood as a guest judge on the All Stars 7 premiere — an appearance that shook them to their crowned cores.

"She looked beautiful up close in Untucked, and she seemed like a fan of the show. Some judges that come on don't seem to be present, but she was very knowledgeable. She knew who we were, she knew what to look for, she was there, and she looked stunning. She was super nice," All Stars 4 winner Trinity The Tuck tells EW during the roundtable discussion (above) pegged to our All Stars 7 cover story, while RuPaul's Drag Race UK season 1 victor The Vivienne chimed in to stress that Diaz "knew everything" about the queens she was judging.

Season 12 champion Jaida Essence Hall adds that she was "glad to see [Diaz] there" after witnessing the 49-year-old praise her during an Instagram Live chat the actress did with comedian (and former Drag Race guest judge) Leslie Jones in 2020.

"Leslie [asked her], 'Who do you think is going to win?' and she said, 'No question: Jaida.' Gagged," Jaida recalls. "Then she showed up [on All Stars 7] and I could tell how invested she was. We have a judge who's not going to be giving fluff. She knew every one of us, our journey, our personal struggles on the show..."

Trinity's All Stars 4 "twinner" Monét X Change finishes with a simple — yet effective — summary of Diaz's stint on the show: "There's something about Cameron," she quips.

Joining Diaz on the premiere episode will be legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell, who struts the Main Stage runway before giving the queens pointers on their catwalk skills.

All Stars 7 pits eight past winners against each other in pursuit of becoming the first queen in her-story with two Drag Race crowns on her head, with a cast that — in addition to the aforementioned Trinity, Vivienne, Monét, and Jaida — also features Raja (season 3), Jinkx Monsoon (season 5), Yvie Oddly (season 11), and Shea Couleé (All Stars 5).
