Cameron Diaz quit Hollywood after marrying her husband and becoming a mom for the first time at 47.
Actress’ new photos shock fans who cannot recognize her.
Details about the “Vanilla Sky” star’s private younger spouse and baby girl are known.
Cameron Diaz dominated screens as the sweet girl-next-door archetype for much of the 2000s. However, she retired from acting when she married her rockstar husband and welcomed her daughter.
She is pretty quiet on social media but has shared new photos of herself, and fans are shocked by her appearance. Her toddler and her husband are now her main focus in life, and she keeps them private.
Just before Diaz’s daughter was born, she decided to retire from acting and make her main priority her family. Many were sad to see her go but wished her well on her new journey.
50-year-old Diaz has agreed to return to Hollywood one last time to make a movie. Jamie Foxx, who will be costarring alongside Diaz in a new Netflix film called “Back In Action,” said he had to beg her. He pleaded on his knees and told her it would be one last film.
Foxx and Diaz starred together in 2014’s “Annie,” which was also the last film she starred in before announcing her retirement, so Foxx is thrilled she has agreed to star with him in this movie.
Photos of Diaz filming the movie have started to surface. One showed the actress standing in a black trenchcoat on a speedboat while filming the production. While some fans were excited to see her “Back In Action,” others had only negative things to say about her appearance.
The photos were posted on Instagram and showed one image of Diaz taken from a distance and another where she smiled at something out of the frame, which was a closer view of the actress’ face.
Immediately, fans began talking about her facial features, saying it was clear she had had plastic surgery and that they thought it was too much. One fan said she looked like The Joker, while another lamented:
“She looks nothing like her former self. So sad. Getting caught up in the plastic look.”
Another said they hoped it was simply a bad photo of her and that she had yet to have that much work done. Most fans said she was unrecognizable and needed to stop having so much work done.
While there were a great many negative comments and backlash was rife in the photos, there were also some fans who thought they even though her appearance had changed, she still looked beautiful.
Although many fans have been left eagerly anticipating the actress’ return to Hollywood, it seems that after this movie, she will leave the profession for good as she has allgedly not been happy on set.
A source close to Madden and Diaz has recently revealed what it has been like for Diaz to reenter Hollywood and pursue her acting career once again. The source said the days are long and she misses her daughter dearly. The source clarified:
“Cameron loves being a mom more than anything in the world.”
The situation has not been easy for Madden either. While he is supportive of his wife no matter what she does, her decision to do another movie has been a lot for the father to handle. The couple see one another and Diaz spends time with their daughter, but the source says it is not the same as if Diaz were home.
The source says that the only reason Foxx was able to convince Diaz to do the movie is because the pair are still close since they filmed “Annie.” Otherwise, Diaz prefers to remain a businessperson.
Diaz prefers to stay out of Hollywood because of all the drama that comes with making movies. She is said to be unconfrontational and doesn’t enjoy the conflict that naturally comes with putting out a production.
The actress reportedly feels like she has done enough in her actnig career to prove herself and has nothing left to prove to anyone else. Diaz has starred in over 40 successful films and was once the highest-paid actress in the industry.The source confirmed that this would likely be Diaz’s last movie ever.
When Foxx had an “absolute meltdown” on set earlier this month, which led to three people being fired, Diaz reportedly knew that she did not want to return to the industry ever again.
The source says that Diaz holds nothing against Foxx for the outburst, but she is no longer interested in being part of this industry and all it entails.
It was reported that Foxx fired an executive producer, two directors, and his driver, but Diaz understood that Foxx was in a position of authority and knew that he had to make tough decisions based on his vision for the film.
Instead of focusing on her acting career, Diaz has chosen to focus on her business venture, Avaline. She launched the business with Katherine Powers in 2020.
The business has seen wonderful growth over the past couple of years and Diaz is proud of her hand in creating something that is so close to her heart and allows her to spend time with her daughter.
How Did Diaz Become A Mom at 47 and Quit Hollywood?
Diaz has often said how grateful she is for her career and all the opportunities she has had during her life, but being an actress was becoming too demanding, and she could not manage her routine.
The former actress said that when she realized it was no longer a sustainable way for her to live, she wanted out of Hollywood and built a routine that she could handle all by herself, without needing assistants, managers, or anyone else.
She mentioned that when she was so busy, she didn’t have the time or capacity to make informed decisions that would be best for her future. Now, she can sit back and relax when deciding on something important.
Diaz also mentioned that she had to build this way of living to clear her schedule and become the best mother to her daughter, Raddix. Diaz and her husband, Benji Madden, surprised the world in January 2020 when they announced the birth of their daughter.
They each took to Instagram to share the same post, which comprised only text announcing their daughter’s arrival, her name, and assuring fans that while she was happy and healthy, they would not share any photos of her.
Shortly after the announcement, a source close to Diaz gave an interview in which they revealed that she and Madden had welcomed their daughter via surrogate and said:
“[Diaz] feels like this baby is truly a miracle.”
The source said the couple had faced many obstacles when trying to become parents and were ecstatic that it had finally happened for them, even though Diaz couldn’t carry the child at 47.
Madden and Diaz tried to fall pregnant through IVF, supplements, and even acupuncture, but none of those avenues worked, which led them to explore the possibility of surrogacy. This journey allowed them to welcome their baby girl finally.
Although Diaz no longer acts, she does give occasional interviews, and in each, she gushes that being a mother is one the best thing she’s done. She also mentioned that she never feels overwhelmed by her daughter because she knows there’s a reason behind every behavior.
When her daughter is upset, Diaz tries to understand the root cause so they can work together to help her feel better. The actress says she feels like that is her job as a parent.
The former actress believes it is the fact that she’s an older parent and had to work hard to welcome a child that has helped her be so patient with her toddler, but she acknowledges that she has also been fortunate enough to have the time to learn about her daughter.
Diaz said that while she does try to be patient at all times, it is not always possible, but when she loses her cool, she communicates with her daughter. She said she tells her daughter what she feels and asks Raddix how it made her feel so they can repair the situation.
Who Is Diaz’s Younger Husband?
Diaz and her husband have a six-year age gap, with Diaz being older than the Good Charlotte guitarist. The couple’s relationship first became public in 2014 when an insider said they spent most of their time at Diaz’s house.
The source said Diaz was happy because she finally found a man who treated her like a lady. There was speculation that the two might have met through Nicole Richie, who is Diaz’s friend and Madden’s twin brother’s wife.
A year later, it was confirmed that Madden and Diaz had married. The couple had been engaged since May of 2014, and all their friends and family were elated for them when they finally tied the knot.
Although filled with love and happiness, the celebration was a small and private affair. It was held at their home in Beverley Hills with close friends and family in attendance to celebrate the couple.
Diaz and Madden are madly in love with one another and their young daughter. Diaz is especially grateful to her husband for being such a wonderful father to their daughter. She once gushed:
“After we do bath time with our baby and we put her to bed, Benji puts her to bed, he’s so good. He’s such an amazing father. I’m so lucky he’s my baby’s father. He’s incredible. He puts her down and I go into the kitchen and I pour myself a nice glass of red wine. I start my cooking, I put on my show, whatever it is.”
While she is grateful for Madden’s part in their daughter’s childhood journey, she says that being a mother is just as important to her as it is for her daughter to have a wonderful father.
Diaz said being a parent is the best part of her life and she is lucky to do it with Madden. While she said she couldn’t believe she was a mother, she was thrilled.
The former actress found the best time in her life was when she got to spend quality time with her husband and her child during quarantine in 2020.
Diaz and her business partner went live together during quarantine and talked about what they had been doing during that time. The former actress said she had been cooking.
While Diaz knows that many people hate cooking, she is not opposed to spending time in the kitchen and making something delicious for her family.
Madden and Diaz live in a mansion in Montecito, California, which they have turned into a sanctuary for themselves and their daughter.
Their home sits on 1.75 acres of land and boasts 11,000 square feet. It is also situated on a hilltop, which provides almost uninterrupted views of the ocean
The home is decorated in neutral colors and has a calming feel. The home boasts two living rooms, a beautiful kitchen, stunning dining room, and a study.
There is also a movie theatre in the house and the main bedroom features a sitting area in front of a fireplace just steos away from the bed.
There are many vantage points from which to view the ocean on the property, but there is also an enormous swimming pool, complete with a hot tub.
At the end of the day, the family can gather on the upper terrace to watch the sun go down over the ocean. What a beautiful home and family!
