It’s been a while since we’ve seen Cameron Diaz on screen. The last we really heard from her was when she wed Good Charlotte’s lead guitarist Benji Madden in 2015. Since then she’s kept herself out of the spotlight, though she did author two health books. One of them, The Body Book even managed to peak at the No. 2 spot on the New York Times Best Seller list.
However, where movies are concerned, there hasn’t been a peep from her. In fact, the last movie she ever was in was 2014’s remake of the classic film Anne.
Her disappearance from the scene was suspected when her former co-star from the 2002 movie, The Sweetest Thing, Selma Blair made a casual remark about Diaz’s retirement in an interview, which she immediately retracted.
In an interview with Metro News UK, she said ““I had lunch with Cameron the other day. We were reminiscing about the film. I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron’s retired from acting. She’s like, ‘I’m done.’”
The interview went viral shortly after which forced Blair to clarify herself on Twitter saying that Diaz was not retiring and she was not the actress spokesperson. It turns out, however, what many suspected was true as in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 45-year-old actress confirmed that she had really retired.
The topic came up when Diaz, Blair and Christina Applegate were doing a Sweetest Thing reunion interview for Entertainment Weekly.
After the trio lamented the fact that they hardly ever see each other, Applegate joked that they should meet up soon, as she is “semi-retired” and “literally doing nothing” besides taking care of her daughter.
“I’m semi-retired, too, and I am actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies,” was Diaz’s reply which was tacit confirmation of what everyone was suspecting.
