After knocking out three to four films per year each year between 2010-2014, actress Cameron Diaz suddenly stopped making movies with the “Annie” remake being her last film.
Diaz, who is still a young 45 years old, decided by choice to walk away and her “The Sweetest Thing” co-star Selma Blair said this week to Metro that she could not coax Diaz out of retirement saying:
“I would have liked to do a sequel [to ‘The Sweetest Thing’] but Cameron’s retired from acting, she’s like, ‘I’m done.’… 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.”
Diaz is reportedly regularly inundated with scripts to try and get her to come back, but she has rejected every single one. Diaz first appeared on screen opposite Jim Carrey in 1994’s “The Mask” before going on to the likes of “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” “There’s Something About Mary,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Shrek” and more.
UPDATE: Selma Blair has now retracted the comments, saying on Twitter a few minutes ago:
BREAKING NEWS. Guys please, I was making a joke in an interview. CAMERON DIAZ is NOT retiring from ANYTHING. And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz’s spokesperson.
