A Farewell to Cameron Diaz's Acting Career

A Farewell to Cameron Diaz's Acting Career

The 45-year-old actress, who dropped out of sight after marrying Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden in 2015, has "retired" from acting, her friend and The Sweetest Thing co-star Selma Blair reportedly said in a new interview with the U.K.'s Daily Star Sunday. Blair would have liked to make a sequel but, "Cameron's retired from acting, she's like 'I'm done'". As much as we all love Rupert Everett's rendition of "I Say A Little Prayer" in the 1997 romantic comedy, it is so hard to resist falling for Diaz when she sings "I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself" at karaoke.

Lots of chatter began, and speculation started about the end to Cameron's acting career. The 60-year-old who is the only actor to win three Academy Awards in the best actor category, cited depression to W Magazine as his reason for retiring. She received Golden Globe nominations for her performance in There's Something About Mary and received Supporting Actress nominations for her dramatic turns in Vanilla Sky and Gangs of NY, and in the comically weird Being John Malkovich.

While we may never know all that it would take to get Diaz on the big screen again, but looking back at some of her most iconic roles we hope someone figure it out. Diaz's other 2014 projects Sex Tape and The Other Woman also performed well, hauling in well over $100 million each worldwide on budgets of $40 million.

Selma added: I mean, she doesn't need to make any more films.

Cameron Diaz has given up on acting, according to her pal Selma Blair. Plus, if her 2013 and 2016 healthy lifestyle books are any indication, she might be looking to go full Goop on us. She recalled how the constant travel and life on film sets affected her. "Cameron is constantly inundated with film scripts trying to tempt her out of retirement but she's just not interested", said the source. "I felt the need to make myself whole".
