The very scintillating actress Cameron Diaz has been missing from acting and rumors had been doing the rounds that she has quit acting. However Diaz’s good friend , Selma Blair clarified that the actress is certainly not retiring. She tweeted saying “Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview,” she wrote.”CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING. And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz’s spokesperson.”
The confusion began when Blair had earlier told the the Daily Star: “I had lunch with Cameron the other day. We were reminiscing about [The Sweetest Thing]. I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron’s retired from acting.“She’s like, ‘I’m done’.”
She had added “I mean, she doesn’t need to make any more films. She has a pretty great life, I don’t know what it would take to bring her back. She’s happy.”
Blair has now backtracked on the comments and said that what she said was just a joke and it doesnot have to be interpreted so seriously. Diaz had taken some time off for quite a while now and she had said last year “I just went, ‘I can’t really say who I am to myself.’ Which is a hard thing to face up to,” “I felt the need to make myself whole.”
Cameron Diaz had a rocking career a decade back and she was the highest-paid actress in Hollywood.In the 12 months leading up to June 2008, she had earned roughly $50 million, according to Forbes, thanks to being a star of the four-part Shrek franchise, plus live-action turns in the comedy What Happens in Vegas and the tear-jerker My Sister’s Keeper, which came out the following year.
“Cameron Diaz, that’s my girl. Now she’s a bloody top actress, isn’t she?” Eric Bana’s completely obnoxious husband said in front of his actress wife played by Leslie Mann in Judd Apatow’s 2010 comedy Funny People. “…Ahhh, Something About Mary. I love that movie! She’s so funny!”
Diaz was always considered the epitome of the men-want-her-and-women-want-to-be-her movie star: gorgeous but relatable; good in gross-out comedies, action movies and trippy stuff like Vanilla Sky; and pretty much the person you most wanted to hang out with at the party.Yet even with so many people paying attention all the time, it was still easy to miss that, like a cruise ship, the four-time Golden Globe nominee had slowly… slowly… started to change course.
