Is Cameron Diaz Retired?

A query I search for every day on Google has finally brought me news I hoped I never had to hear: “Cameron Diaz Retired.” Meaning we may never find out what happens after Shrek Forever After.

What happened to Cameron Diaz? What was Cameron Diaz’s last movie? Who is Cameron Diaz married to? And, how old is Cameron Diaz?? Uh, Is Cameron Diaz age even a factor? Methinks not.

Here’s the breakdown of the latest we heard about our girl Cameron D.

What Happened To Cameron Diaz?

Cameron Diaz is a national treasure — but according to her The Sweetest Thing co-star, Selma Blair, we won’t be seeing her infectious smile on the silver screen anytime soon.

Apparently, Charlie’s Angel has hung up the phone.

Blair and Diaz were catching up over lunch and reminiscing about their 2002 comedy together. Blair said:

“I would have liked to do a sequel, but Cameron’s retired from acting. She’s like, ‘I’m done.’”

Of course, Diaz probably isn’t hard up for money. She’s had an incredible career, and the residuals from Shrek probably aren’t stopping anytime soon. (Guys, Shrek came out in 2001 and I just went to get my passport a few weeks ago. They were playing Shrek on the TV and it was such an odd experience to go through this very procedural process while a green ogre was yelling at a donkey.)

Blair 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.”

What Was Cameron Diaz’s Last Movie?

If you’ve been keeping tabs on Diaz, then you’ll realize that her last movie was in 2014, a remake of Annie where she played the crotchety Miss Hannifin.

It was, arguably, a flop.

So what’s Diaz up to now, if she isn’t acting?

In 2013, Diaz released a bestselling book, The Body Book, and in 2016 her follow-up The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time.

However, Diaz or her reps have yet to say “Hey, I’m not acting anymore. I’m focusing on my wellness books,” so maybe all hope is not lost yet.

Who Is Cameron Diaz Married To?

In 2015, Diaz married Good Charlotte member Benji Madden. So yes, this means her sister-in-law is Nicole Richie who is married to Benji’s twin and bandmate Joel Madden.

These are names I have not typed since middle school on AIM when someone asked me about my crush.

All in all, hopefully, this retirement is just a temporary thing, because we’d love to see Richie and Diaz appear in something great together.

Heck, I’d buy the first ticket for The Sweetest Thing 2.
