Cameron Diaz stepped away from the spotlight after her last acting role in 2014, but she hasn’t ruled out a comeback.
Da allora, Diaz’s primary focus has been her matrimonio to Benji Madden and motherhood. Nel 2019 she became a mother to daughter Raddix, which she described as “the happiest time of my life.”
Opening up in a recent interview with Naomi Campbell, the “Charlie’s Angels” actress said “never say never” to a return to acting.
“I’ll come back and people will be like, ‘There’s a new older actress on the scene!’” Diaz joked on Campbell’s “No Filter” YouTube series.
“The Mask” star added: “You should never say never.”
Speaking of her breakout role “The Mask,” Diaz revealed she almost didn’t get the part.
The actress was a model for five years and had never had an acting job until her role opposite Jim Carrey.
“They were talking to Anna Nicole Smith and, sai, the studio really wanted her cause I had never done anything,” she told Campbell, 50.
The “Shrek” star added: “I think maybe five or 10 days before filming they said ‘yes’ to me.”
Diaz revealed that, after she got the part, she immediately began taking acting lessons.
“It was really amazing that they invested that much time into me,” the Avaline Wine founder said of the director and producers. “I didn’t know at the time what kind of chance I was taking.”
Diaz added: “It was pretty wild.”
