Cameron Diaz has been one of those Hollywood pillars that has been in all of your favorite movies, from rom coms to comedies to dramas. But if you feel like you haven't seen her in anything recently, it's because she has moved on from acting.
The last role Diaz played was in the 2014 Annie remake, and she confirmed in 2018 that she had indeed retired from acting. She created a brand of wine called Avaline, but other than that she's focusing on some other important parts of her life.
Cameron Diaz Retired From Acting to Focus on Her Family
In an interview on Michelle Visage's podcast Rule Breakers, Diaz talked about what led her to step back from Hollywood. "It's just a different time in my life now," she said. "Now I'm here and this is the most fulfilling thing that I've ever done in my life."
"[To] have a family and be married and have our little nucleus of a family," she continued. "It's just completely the best thing. I don't have what it takes to give making a movie what it needs to be made. All of my energy is here."
Her daughter Raddix was born in 2019, and she and her husband Benji Madden have been married since 2015. This is where all of her attention is these days.
She also talked about her natural beauty routine and how she's given up on trying to fit into Hollywood's beauty standards. "I don't care," she said. "Literally, the last thing I think about on a daily basis…like maybe not at all during the day, is what I look like. I literally do nothing. I, like, never wash my face."
"It's hard not to look at yourself and judge yourself against other markers of beauty, and I think that that's one of the biggest things, the last eight years girl - I'm like wild, I'm like a wild animal, I'm a beast," she continued.
Diaz admits that she's "a victim to all of the societal objectifications and exploitations that women are subjected to," but she no longer buys into them. She just focuses on staying healthy, eating well, and taking care of her family.
