The Mask, Mary à tout prix, Charlie and his funny ladies… American actress Cameron Diaz was one of the most popular actresses of her generation. Over the course of her career, the pretty blonde had become an icon of Hollywood comedies before taking a 180 degree turn by putting an end to her film career in 2014.

On comedian Kevin Hart’s Hart to Heat show, the actress spoke about her reasons for taking early retirement. “There were so many parts of my life that I didn’t take care of, that I couldn’t manage,” she said, saying that she loved her acting job: “It’s fun to do, I love it. I love to play” and qualify: “I really wanted to be able to manage my life”. A desire to move away from film sets that she justified by explaining that she wanted to devote herself to her family. In January 2020, Cameron Diaz, who is married to musician Benji Madden, announced on Instagram that she had become the mother of a daughter named Raddix.

“It’s the most fulfilling thing I’ve ever done in my life,” she said in the same interview and added, “Having a family, being married and a family. It’s just the best thing there is (…) Would I make a film again one day? I’m not looking to make one… but would I? I don’t know. I have no idea. maybe never say never but I can’t imagine myself as a mother of a one-year-old and being on a movie set 14 or 16 hours a day away from my daughter.”

The star finally decided otherwise. Soon, she will star in the Netflix film Back in Action alongside Jamie Foxx. While waiting to find her, Planet invites you to discover her hot photos throughout her career.
