Cameron Diaz: From Being Famous in Hollywood to Retiring and Coming Back

Cameron Diaz has had a lot of big hits in Hollywood, from her first big roles in โ€œThe Maskโ€ and โ€œThereโ€™s Something About Maryโ€ to her parts in โ€œShrekโ€ and โ€œCharlieโ€™s Angels.โ€ Fans have been asking where she is because she hasnโ€™t been in any movies in a few years. The cause? When Diaz quit acting in 2017, she did so to put her family and personal life first.

Diaz is still remembered as one of the most famous actresses of all time, even though she has been away from Hollywood for a while. Together, her movies have made more than $3 billion at the US box office, making her the fifth-highest-grossing actor of all time. In addition, she was nominated for four Golden Globes.

Diazโ€™s work was still going strong in the early 2010s. In 2013, she was the highest-paid actor over 40 in Hollywood. In 2014, she was in three movies: โ€œThe Other Woman,โ€ โ€œSex Tape,โ€ and โ€œAnnie.โ€ At the end of this busy time, Diaz decided to take a break from the spotlight to focus on her personal life.

Diaz married Good Charlotte musician Benji Madden, and the couple welcomed their daughter Raddix in 2019 through surrogacy. Diaz explained her decision to retire in an interview with Gwyneth Paltrow, highlighting her desire for a different life that included more space for her personal life.

She acknowledged the toll that the demanding schedule of a movie star takes, saying, โ€œWhen youโ€™re making a movie, itโ€™s the perfect excuse. They own you. Youโ€™re there 12 hours a day for months on end. You have no time for anything else.โ€ Diaz also expressed her realization that she had delegated parts of her life to others and needed to take responsibility for herself.

During her time away from acting, Diaz authored two bestselling health books, โ€œThe Body Bookโ€ and โ€œThe Longevity Book.โ€ Although she enjoyed her retirement and had no regrets about leaving Hollywood, she recently decided to make a return to the screen.

In the upcoming film โ€œBack in Action,โ€ set to be released on Netflix, Diaz will star alongside Jamie Foxx. The decision to return to acting was motivated by the chance to work with Foxx again, as they had previously collaborated on projects like โ€œAny Given Sundayโ€ and โ€œAnnie.โ€ Diaz emphasized that her family remains her priority and that her return to acting is a temporary endeavor.

Reports suggest that after completing filming for โ€œBack in Action,โ€ Diaz plans to retire once again. Sources state that the demanding work schedule and time away from her family have taken a toll on her, and Diaz is eager to focus on her role as a mother.

Diazโ€™s decision to retire from acting highlights the importance of balancing personal and professional priorities. Her success in Hollywood and her subsequent choice to step back from the industry demonstrate her commitment to embracing new chapters in life.
