Rumor: Diaz Likely to Leave Hollywood Again After Jamie Foxx Meltdown

Rumor: Diaz Likely to Leave Hollywood Again After Jamie Foxx Meltdown

Cameron Diaz likely won’t return to Hollywood for another film – after a friend revealed the star has been struggling with super long work days that tear her apart from her husband Benji Madden and their three-year-old daughter, Raddix.

The 50-year-old officially retired from her Hollywood career in 2018, before being lured back by her close friend Jamie, 55, to star alongside him in action comedy Back In Action.

But her comeback project was thrown into turmoil earlier this month, when it was reported that Jamie ‘had an absolute meltdown’ on the UK set of the movie, which led to the firing of three people.

Now, a source close to the star has revealed that – while she does not have any issues with Jamie – she likely won’t return to the world of film after wrapping the project, because she’s had such a hard time being away from her family and hates the ‘drama and confrontation’ that so often erupts on movie sets.

‘These back-to-back 10-hour workdays have been a lot on her and she hates being away from Raddix,’ the pal tells exclusively, adding, ‘Cameron loves being a mom more than anything in the world.’

‘She hates drama and confrontation. This is why she retired from the business in the first place,’ she source adds. ‘She has already proven herself in the industry and has nothing left to prove to anyone.’

Cameron famously walked away from Hollywood in 2018 to spend more time with her rocker husband Benji, 44.

The two welcomed their daughter in December 2019 and have been incredibly private about their lives as parents to their three-year-old.

According to the insider, while Benji has been incredibly ‘supportive’ of his wife’s decision to come out of retirement, the decision has taken a toll on him.

‘Benji is supportive of everything that Cameron does, but it has been a lot on him,’ the source tells ‘Although she has gotten to see her family while shooting the film, it is just not the same.’

In regards to Jamie’s tantrum on set that led to him firing an executive producer, two directors and his driver, the insider was mum on specific details.

They did say, however, that they would be ‘incredibly surprised if it caused any tension between Jamie and Cameron.’

‘When you are in a position of authority, sometimes you have to make decisions to let people go who do not share the same vision as you,’ the pal says.

‘Cameron is a businessperson and understands that this is necessary at times and, honestly, Jamie is the only reason that she is doing this film and they are still very close.’

Over the course of two decades, Cameron racked up over 40 massively successful films and, at one time, was the highest paid actress in Hollywood.

However, since announcing her retirement, she has turned her hand to other ventures – including creating her own wine brand, Avaline, which she launched with business partner Katherine Powers during the height of the pandemic in 2020.

This venture was a major turning point for the Charlie’s Angels’ actress – and has, according to the source, given her a new creative outlet on which to focus.

‘Cameron has gotten extremely involved in Avaline and was pivotal in it’s creation,’ the insider shared.

‘Aveline has grown exponentially and it is something that Cameron is very, very proud of.’ has reached out to Cameron’s spokesperson for comment.

Prior to the film that she is currently working on, Cameron has not done a movie since 2014, when she starred alongside Jamie in the musical comedy film adaptation of Annie.

She officially announced her retirement in a 2018 interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Although she had no real plans to return to the spotlight, the end of her retirement was announced by Jamie on his Twitter account in June 2022.

In the shocking post, Jamie brought infamously unretired NFL star Tom Brady in on a conversation with Cameron in an effort to convince her back from her retirement.

During the call, she made a point to say how nervous she was about making an announcement.

‘I’m so anxious right now, I’m pacing the room… I don’t know how to do this, you know?’ the stunning actress stated.

Jamie dialed in Tom, 45, who unretired from the NFL only to re-retire again, to give Cameron a few tips.

‘I was talking to Jamie and he said you needed a few tips on how to un-retire. I’m relatively successful at un-retiring,’ the newly single quarterback said.

Jamie then told Tom that he was trying to coax Cameron to come back, referring to her as a GOAT, which stands for Greatest Of All Time.

‘Cameron I hope you aren’t mad I recorded this, but no turning back now. Had to call in the GOAT to bring back another GOAT,’ Jamie said.

Cameron shared a screenshot of the voice call to her Instagram story with a message to he longtime friend and fellow A-list star.

‘Jamie Foxx, only you could get me back in action!!! I can’t frickin wait it’s gonna be a blast!,’ Cameron said, dropping a hint about the title of their upcoming film.

Cameron Talks Acting Return: “I Don’t Miss Acting”

Cameron Talks Acting Return: “I Don’t Miss Acting”

Cameron Diaz last appeared on the big screen in 2014’s Annie, and has stayed out of the spotlight ever since

Cameron Diaz is loving life away from the spotlight.

The actress, who first burst onto the Hollywood scene in 1994’s The Mask, hasn’t appeared on screen since the 2014 remake of the musical Annie — marking an impressive 20-year career with plenty of iconic hits. Now 46, Diaz explained her recent retreat from the public eye in a new interview for InStyle‘s special 25th anniversary issue.

“I started [experiencing fame] when I was 22, so 25 years ago — that’s a long time,” Diaz said. “The way I look at it is that I’ve given more than half of my life to the public. I feel it’s OK for me to take time for myself now to reorganize and choose how I want to come [back] into the world. If I decide to. I don’t miss performing.”

Still, Diaz isn’t totally ruling out a return to the big screen — she’s just focusing on other callings.

“Right now I’m looking at the landscape of wellness and all that. But whatever I do, it has to be something I’m passionate about — something that just feels effortless,” she said.

The actress has also been spending plenty of quality time with husband Benji Madden, 40. The two, who married back in Jan. 2015, live a quiet life outside of the public eye and are rarely seen out and about together.

That privacy seems to be by design.

“It’s fun to just not have anybody know what I’m up to,” she said. “Because my time is all mine. I’m not selling any films, and because I’m not selling anything, I don’t have to give anybody anything. I’m not doing this anymore. I’m living my life.”

Now in her 40s, Diaz said she’s settling into her “best decade” as she focuses on things that mean most to her, like her marriage to the Good Charlotte musician.

“I just want to build better, stronger friendships with the people who are in it with me. Of course, that includes my husband,” she said. “Getting married to him was the best thing that ever happened to me. My husband’s the best. He’s the greatest human being, and he’s my great partner.”

She continued: “I don’t know if I was ready [when I got married], but I knew Benji was special. He’s just a good man. There’s no bullshit. It’s really refreshing. I’m really grateful for him. I like doing my own thing.”

But fans might have something to celebrate soon, as Diaz teased potential new projects.

“I like creating, so I’m just looking for the project that makes the most sense for me now,” she said. “I have some things brewing, but it’s a little too early to talk about them.”

Charlie’s Angels Reunion! Lucy Liu Joined by Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz at Walk of Fame Ceremony

The angels are back together!

Lucy Liu was joined by her Charlie’s Angels costars Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz at her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where she received one of the iconic stars. The trio was also joined by Demi Moore, who starred in the 2003 sequel Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle with them.

Liu, 50, took a moment to thank Barrymore, 44, and Diaz, 46, for coming out to support her, pointing out that it serves as a de facto reunion for the 2000 movie.

“My dear Angels, it’s a 20-year reunion,” Liu said as she looked over at her friends. “20 years ago we were an elite crime-fighting team, and now look at us.”

While Barrymore and Diaz didn’t speak, Moore, 56, took the stage to honor Liu and praise her before the star was revealed.

“Lucy continues to surprise me with her courage and fearless determination, seeing obstacles as mere stepping stones on the path to where you wanna go,” Moore said to her friend. “I am so happy to be here, it really is an absolute pleasure to stand up here. There is no one more deserving of this honor than you.”

The action star then took the stage, where she thanked all the people that helped her along her career.

“I am completely overwhelmed by the love and support of my friends, family, my fans,” Liu said after she was introduced. “Even though this star has my name on it, it is the result of the hard work of many brilliant writers, directors, actors, and crew who elevated me and helped me shine.”

While it’s been almost 16 years since the last Charlie’s Angels came out, there is a reboot opening in theaters later this year starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.

Exclusive: Cameron Turned Down Oscar Invite to Present

While the Academy Awards struggled to find a host in time for their telecast, it also seems like they’re having a tough time convincing Cameron Diaz to make an appearance, because she’s not showing up at this year’s ceremony.

“This year the Oscars are really focused on bringing in some people to present that will shock the audience,” an insider exclusively tells Closer Weekly, “and Cameron was on the top of their list because it’s been so long since she’s appeared at one of these functions and she’s such a stunner on the red carpet.” The source adds, “She’s also starred alongside Glenn Close, a 2019 Oscar nominee for Best Actress.] But nobody is going to convince Cameron to make a public appearance just for the sake of a ‘stunt,’ and she has zero interest in walking a red carpet and answering questions about her ‘hiatus’ or her long time away from acting.”

The 46-year-old retired from acting after starring in Annie in 2014, and ever since then the Charlie’s Angels star has stayed away from Tinseltown for the most part. These days, Cameron seems to be focusing on her marriage to musician Benji Madden, who she has been married to since 2015. On her most recent birthday, the Good Charlotte band member had quite the romantic message on Instagram for his wife.

“Thank you for being the best friend and partner to me and taking this journey of marriage,” Benji said at the time. “The way you live your life every day, and your compassion for the world shines thru in your eyes and you inspire me to want to be the best man I can be in this lifetime. You’re the realest. I’m so grateful to be yours Always & Forever, and to call you my One&Only. True Love.” That said, it will be interesting to see if any surprise or shocking appearances are made when the Oscars air on February 24, 2019.


Acclaimed director Peter Farrelly is apologizing to Cameron Diaz and others for repeatedly flashing his penis on movie sets back in the day, which he now calls a poor attempt at humor. 

Peter’s public apology comes after Cameron’s interviews from 20 years ago resurfaced. The actress, who starred in his ’98 hit, “There’s Something About Mary,” said Peter flashed his genitals on set and during her audition.

Peter told The Hollywood Reporter it’s all true, saying, “I was an idiot. I did this decades ago and I thought I was being funny and the truth is I’m embarrassed and it makes me cringe now. I’m deeply sorry.”

Worth noting, when Cameron talked about the ‘Mary’ audition incident, she said she wasn’t appalled. As she put it back then, “When a director shows you his penis the first time you meet him, you’ve got to recognize the creative genius.”

Peter’s newest film, “Green Book,” is considered an Oscars front-runner after winning the Golden Globe for Best Comedy or Musical.
