A photographer has been charged with using 10-year-old photos of Cameron Diaz to try to extort $3.3 million from the actress.

John Rutter, 41, was arrested Tuesday at his apartment in Los Angeles' Venice section. He was charged Wednesday with one count each of attempted extortion, grand theft and perjury, as well as two counts of forgery. He faces up to six years in prison if convicted, the district attorney's office said.
