Cameron Diaz Says She’s Retired From The Spotlight
Cameron Diaz has finally confirmed that she’s done acting.
The actress has been stepping back from the acting scene in recent years. However, Diaz’s Sweetest Thing co-star Selma Blair added fuel to the retirement rumors earlier this month when she spoke about her leaving her acting career behind.
“We were reminiscing about the film [The Sweetest Thing]. I would have liked to do a sequel, but Cameron’s retired from acting,” Blair told Metro News. “She’s like, ‘I’m done.'”
After causing fans to speculate about Diaz’s career, Blair took her Twitter account to say that she was just joking.
📠📺☎👩🏻🏫 BREAKING NEWS 🚨🚨🚨. Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview. CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING. And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz’s spokesperson. 🎙

However, her joke held some truth. During a Sweetest Thing reunion interview with Diaz, Blair and Christina Applegate, Diaz finally admitted she has retired.
When asked if they have had a reunion since filming the movie, they admitted that they have not. Diaz then told her former co-stars, “I mean, I’m down. I’m literally doing nothing.”
Applegate then revealed that she was “semi” retired. “I’m literally doing nothing, too! I’m semi-retired, I haven’t worked for years. I’m a mom, that’s what we do. So I’m around, man,” Applegate said.
“That’s so awesome,” Diaz replied. “I’m totally down. I’m semi-retired, too, and I am actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies.”
Diaz’s last acting appearance was in 2014 for the remake of Annie. She married Benji Madden in 2015.
